Insufficient drive bays

Frederick E. Hutchings, Amazon
3 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this unit from a local retailer, but am an old AMAZON customer; hence am adding this review. The motherboard supports only 8gb of ram - which is sufficient, but buyers should be aware. There is only one hard drive bay in the box yet the motherboard has 6 SATA slots. A second drive bay should have been an easy design spec, yet HP elected to skip this.

15 months of use ... some problems..

peter snell, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: the P6-2120 has worked well for most of the time. We DID add an AGP to get a DVI output for my Samsung 60". We sent the unit back for warrenty work after 3 months because the on-board clock module gained about 2hrs per day. HP returned the unit, saying it met specs, but it still gains about 2hrs per day. Ok, it was $219, so absolute perfection may not have been promised.

Windows 8 issue

oscar cantada, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • Summary: After using it for 4 months it developed a software issue. The computer failed to print. I download the printer software from HP and each time it told me that the printer is not connected. So I called the hp support and they diagnosed that the problem is the software. They will fix it for $65.00 and i said no. You guys can send me a software (windows 8). I will upgrade it myself. Thank you!

Good baseline, not expansion friendly

Ozzallos, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: Given the lack of reviews on this PC, I thought maybe somebody else could benefit from my experience. At first glance the hardware looks sound: a quad core 3.2ghz, 8gb RAM machine with a terabyte HDD. The AMD A8-5500 had an onboard GPU competent enough to handle HD video and some games at med-low settings. If you are looking for an office grinder or competent home desktop, there's nothing wrong with this machine. The issues come when you try to add anything.

HP Pavilion p6-2330 Desktop (black)

Jim Dupuis "still looking for Marie Levau", Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: If I had not had some experience assisting me I would still be on the outside looking in. This is the worst machine I've owned over the last 15 or so years. I just can't get the nack of it. I've been trying to locate a 8.1 to download but I still can't be sure it's a good one so I have not downloaded 8.1 yet. Maybe if I can get 8.1 I might understand the operation a little better,.. Do you know a good location I can find 8.a ??

Very underwhelmed

Commander Flake "Commander Flake", Amazon
12 May 2013
  • Summary: This thing is running, for now. It has been a month and it has frozen up twice. Multi tasking? Naah! It is loud, but the audio play back only works after I fight with Windows 8, which is awful! Video streaming? No. Old files are lost, which is not (name withheld's) fault. I simply can't open the files! I could go on but why bother. Stay away from this very underwhelming unit.
