carasgsk, Ebay
10 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this PC with mind to replace my 6 years old ACER ASPIRE to this one.After an one hour usage I was wondered-HP Compaq CQ58-bf9WM 15.6" is twice slower than my old Acer. I upgraded RAM until 4GB, but HP still was slow as before. I think,main problem is AMD C-60 1 GHz processor.

The laptop was in really nice condition externally

Mr. Raymond P. Leitch "Bookworm", Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: The laptop was in really nice condition externally, but unfortunately had a problem which was immediately obvious on boot up. As this fault was so obvious (it came up with an error message highlighting the fact that the main fan wasn't working), I feel that it should have been picked up prior to dispatch. I had to return the laptop, and although I got a prompt refund, the experience was not of the best.

Too slow to do anything with

Kazimir, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this low-end computer to use with simple programs like Word or Excel. However, it is just so slow in the configuration it is sold in. The technical specs of this computer are not adapted to Windows 8, which makes simple actions like launching a browser so slow. Arm yourself with patience. Furthermore, I tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1, supposedly better.

Underpowered For Running Windows 8, Gaming or Streaming Media

R. M. Ross "The Rossitron", Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this laptop for my 11 year old, with the hope that it would be an upgrade from her ageing Pentium 2.8ghz desktop which runs XP. If anything, this laptop is a step backwards in terms of speed and overall user experience. Windows 8 runs slow on this thing, every app you open seems to take an age to load, not slick at all. Games don't play smoothly even on the lowest graphics settings.

A disappointing purchase

Silverman, Amazon
25 June 2013
  • Summary: The wireless connection would not work properly. I could receive inward wireless signal from BT but unable to send outward signal as requested to by BT over the phone. Instruction leaflet totally inadequate. As Windows 8 is so very different from XP I was unable to apply existing knowledge to see if the problem was resolveable, so I returned the unit.

  • Summary: comprato a fine febbraio .. in una grande catena, il prezzo era decisamente concorrenziale con altri portatili entry level la cosa piu' negativa è che ha delle casse assolutamente scarse navigare naviga ha le usb 2 (non la 3) non ha il card reader installato aveva windows 8 (consiglio di fare subito l'upgrade a 8,1) funzionare funziona ancora (non so per quanto) praticamente subito ho avuto dei piccoli problemini non identificati (ora mi sono piu' chiari) in pratica ha...
  • Pros: prezzo
  • Cons: casse, sarebbe gia' da spedire a riparare .  .  .
