Very disappointed.

Kathryn Fulton "KAF", Amazon
20 April 2015
  • Summary: This computer died when it was less than two years old. I bought it, put it in one place and never moved it. Hard drive died. I have a Dell that is still going at 10 years with no repairs necessary. Very disappointed.

  • Summary: Bought this unit in 2013 - The HDD crashed completely last month and its not usable now. I am shopping for HDD + Windows now. HP Does it again. I thought this was a better unit - it was good as long as it lasted. I had an HP laptop that crashed too. I guess I am done with HP now.

Great Budget Builds

Anonymous, Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Pros: I've been passively looking for a computer to use as a home server for about a year. When I saw this deal, I couldn't resist. The parts included cost about $480, even on good Newegg deals. I bought this for under $330, and it was an absolute steal. The A8 7600 is a very capable processor, and act...
  • Cons: OK, there were a few things I didn't like with this refurb, but nothing that would dissuade me from buying again. They are as follows: It would be nice if it came with the cage for the hard drives and you could optionally remove it like I have with all my other HP machines. However, 2TB is plenty...

Good Value Some Limitations

Gary S., Newegg
25 February 2015
  • Summary: I'm giving it five stars to compensate for some two star reviews, if not for those I'd probably give it four. It's a good machine for what it is, a prebuilt value system from a major manufacturer.
  • Pros: Great "bang for the buck" system. A8 is pretty fast. Integrated R7 video is pretty fast for light gaming. Works well with Windows 10 technical preview. Does have a 2.5" bay for an SSD.
  • Cons: Build quality isn't great. Limited expandability. Should have 2 sticks of RAM. A lot of work to "downgrade" to Windows 7.

Nice machine. Lots of memory and fast

  • Summary: Nice machine. Lots of memory and fast. I purchased mine two years ago and it has performed flawlessly. I'm not crazy about windows 8, I upgraded to 8.1 which is marginally better.

Don't bother

James C., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Summary: This would be OK with at least 2 additional 3.5" drive bays. I will never buy a pre-built PC again and certainly not an HP-branded product.
  • Pros: Motherboard has 4 memory slots (DDR3). Makes it easy to get to the 32 gig max memory with 4 8-gig dimms.
  • Cons: Tower case has just 1 3.5" drive bay, a design flaw. The motherboard has 6 SATA ports. This is plain bad design. Windows 8.1 is loaded with the usual bloatware.

Excellent Workstation

Jean-Paul L., Newegg
11 February 2015
  • Summary: Great value on a speedy and quick PC. This PC works as well for any student, family, or even an office. Obviously if you are running CAD or large desktop publishing files you are going to understandably spend more. But for most folks, this PC will more than suffice.
  • Pros: - Very quiet. You hardly know it is turned on. - Small footprint - Fast boot - Wireless and Gigabit Ethernet -64 bit OS - 2 TB hard drive (drive spins down to save energy when not in use) - Fast in general - Qualifies for the free upgrade to Windows 10 when released later this year. - Will run Li...
  • Cons: - Win 8.1 (on a positive note, it qualifies for the free upgrade to Windows 10 when released later this year) - keyboard and mouse are kinda cheap feeling, but work fine. I replaced them with a wireless set. - No serial port to plug in my UPS monitoring cable. (not that big a deal as I can do wit...
