Summary: Hard drive crashed with under two years of use, contacted seller to get a replacement disc for windows as it needed to be reinstalled. Seller did not contact back, highly unsatisfied with both product and seller communication.
Summary: Bought this as a gift. Except for Windows 8, he loves it. I bought a program that eliminates the Windows Start screen so Windows 8 isn't as much of a problem anymore. Does anyone like/want Windows 8?
Summary: I didn't buy this from Amazon, but actually Walmart. It was pretty easy to set up, but I didn't like that I had to buy a monitor separately, but then I realized most desktops don't come with a monitor. It was working really well the first 3 months, but I ran into a few problems. After 3 months, the front UBS ports broke. I didn't like them in the first place because you could only plug in one thing at a time with how close together they were.
Summary: I purchased a similar HP computer with windows 8. I dislike windows 8, so I returned it and looked for something with windows 7. This is refurbished so it is cheaper and does exactly what I want. I am very happy with it. haven't found anything I dislike.
Summary: Overall, system works out of the box and has the basic features you would expect. We bought this system with Windows 7 (on purpose). Within a year, our system began to occasionally power itself down without explanation. It then wouldn't power back up right away. We would have to unplug it, let it be for a few minutes, then plug the power supply back in and turn it on.
