Do not buy a HP Product, as they have gone downhill (made in China , JUNK)
Donald Palmer, Amazon

Summary: First of all, I did not buy this desktop from Amazon, rather the HP Store. It was custom made to my specs. It arrived (from China, via Mexico) damaged. The front plastic cover was smashed ! I contacted HP customer service, and they sent me the wrong front cover, so they had to send me another shipment. After about a month, I heard this loud abnormal sound, which turned out to be a bad fan on the graphics card.
Motherboard going out after a little more than a year!

Summary: I bought this item almost two years ago. The motherboard started going out over 8 months ago. Very disappointed with this item. I also bought a HP laptop about four years ago and the SD card slot began malfunctioning after two years (and it was used very seldom.) I'm beginning to wonder about HP. They use to be top notch in manufacturing good items. But I've been disappointed recently.
