DVD drive can be extremely loud

Marc Stephenson, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: The system works as expected except that the DVD drive sounds like a jet engine when it powers up. It eventually subsides, but it's ridiculously loud. The other complaint is a cheap lightweight keyboard, but I had already had a replacement ready for that. I'll probably just replace the DVD drive.

Nice Desktop Computer But...

Ms. H. T. O'CONNOR "helentoconnor", Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: I do like my new HP Pavilion HPE Computer but there are a few things I find annoying. Firstly access to the USB ports at the front of the computer is not easy. They are hidden behind a low wall at the top of the tower and they are facing backwards so it's a hit and miss efforts to locate and plug in those accessories. But maybe that's an age thing. Secondly, for such a powerful modern computer I wonder why HP would bother to include a plug-in mouse and keyboard?

Fast PC, but HP is cutting corners

gh8toes "gh8toes", Amazon
13 April 2013
  • Summary: Here's a review HP failed to post on their website. If you spend over $1000 to custom order a PC, you should expect to receive a quality product. HP is in the habit of skimping on components that they believe the average customer would not notice. When I upgraded my WiFi/ethernet card to their "Premium" card, I would expect that card to be capable of sending and receiving the fastest internet speeds available in the market today - NOT be limited to a 100 Mbps ethernet...

Its OK

Renato, Amazon

  • Summary: This PC is ok for your standard school or office work but it is very bad if you're a gamer or work whit software that require a better graphics card. You can update the graphics card with a better one which will cost you around $150. To do so you also have to update the power supply (500 watts or higher) which will cost less than $100. I personally think this is too much money, specially when there are better deals out there.

Not all that I hoped for

R. Mailloux "RAM", Amazon
9 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this directly from HP using their online store. I did this because I wanted it customized with a Blue-ray player, wireless keyboard, extra memory etc. It arrived and I set it up without any problem. The trouble began when the wireless keyboard stopped working at boot up. I couldn't enter the BIOS setup because the keyboard and mouse weren't recognized. Once the OS starts up it sees the keyboard and mouse. Not ideal!
