Excerpt: I have been an HP desktop and laser printer fan for many years. I recently purchased the Pavilion 500-281 model given that the drive in my old HP Pavilion died. Rather than have it replaced (for $200+), I opted to put those funds towards a new desktop.
Excerpt: Product will be fine. However, I originally ordered this computer on 02/21/2015 with an expected delivery date of 02/24/2015 at the very latest. It was suppose to be 2 day shipping. The courier attempted to make the delivery on 02/25/2015.
Excerpt: I have been using windows XP on all of my computers until recently when two of them crashed. I order this one with Windows 7 instead of Widows 8 because of friends who had problems with Windows 8. The HP was a great buy and got here in two days which was perfect.
Excerpt: After purchasing the computer and getting it home we could not get the cd drive to work. Had to take it back and have it repaired. They said it was just a loose connection.Other than that the performance has been excellent. I have nbo complaints.
Excerpt: had a Windows 8.1 which I didn't like so bought a new Windows 7 from Staples for a good price ( on sale ) which I am very pleased with. Have bought several items over the years and have always been treated as a valued customer. Have bought a new monitor to go with it since then.
