Don't Buy HP Slimlines

RG, Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: HP Slimlines are junk, mine burnt out its motherboard twice with light use. Slimlines have heat problems and HP customer service doesn't care that you just wasted your money on them. They will be laughing at you, if you buy their crappy products.

Small size, but prone to failure

  • Summary: In years 2 and 3, I have replaced the power supply three times at nearly $100/PSU. And now no video signal - the monitor powers on fine and works with an older HP and dell tower.

Knew it was bad

John S. Pearson, Amazon
21 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this computer aware it was a typical poorly designed layout. Maybe Dell designed it for HP! I had the replacements to make it work properly and it now does. I would never recommend this model or maybe any mini unless you have the knowledge and access to the upgrades necessary.

Loud CPU Cooler Fan, Poorly-designed Case

Richard, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: I got this machine in an equipment swap. The basic system is okay as a "Slimline". I have assembled better quality Mini-ITX (E.g.[...]) and Micro-ATX (E.g. [...]) solutions. If (a) the noise level is acceptable to you and (b) it performs well-enough for you, then you have no worries.

Jen, Amazon

  • Summary: I got mine at Best Buy and I've liked it a lot. It is very quiet! I haven't had any problems except with the hard drive. It started dying about a year after I got it. But I had it replaced and haven't had any more problems with it.
