Excerpt: The Compaq Presario CQ62 offers decent memory and fast processing. However, that is where the good qualities end. I have had numerous problems with the Compaq Presario in the 2 and half years I have owned it. First, the cooling fan stop functioning and had to be replaced. Then, the battery quit charging and had to be replaced. Then, the power supply/charging card stop working and had to be replaced. Then, the keyboard had to be replaced.
Excerpt: where do i begin with this laptop. to start off with the buttons are super hard when typing, the trackpad area is not a smooth pad but a rough one just like the rest of the laptop, the mouse clickers are very hard just like the buttons ive had this laptop for around 6 months now and i am still not used to it.the supposably awesome speaker system is garbage. it has a very low volume, no highs, no mids, no lows.

Excerpt: Compaq 15.6" Presario CQ62-215DX 2GB 250GB Laptop Notebook PC is very reasonably priced. It looks great, it is pretty fast, and is very quiet. It has got everything for someone who just needs a laptop for browsing the internet and using word processor. The laptop has no camera but it has a built-in microphone. It is black so you will see every piece of dust on it,the keyboard is odd because the keys are too low, and too close to each other, making it hard to type.
Summary: This laptop is a bit slow, but I cant complain for $348. I bought a Compaq for my sister that was similar to this one, except it had the keypad and an extra 1GB of memory and I only paid an extra $30 and it was worth it. It doesnt feel as cheap as this one and its much faster.
Excerpt: "Too slow, too slow, too slow. I will never buy a cheap laptop again, you get what you pay for. This laptop frustrates me no end, it is just so slow and the charged battery life is not long enough. After about 18 months the battery needs to be replaced and probably about once a day it needs to be rebooted, not every day but it just gets slower and slower. I have run diagnostics, virus scans etc etc and has not helped. I've even had it looked at by ...
Excerpt: "Now this computer is quite old but i must say that it is awful. people please dont buy it, if you are in ddesperate need of a new laptop but dont have one just go to a library. save for somthing a bit on the higher range because it will last longer. Enough of that lets move on to the specs: AMD Athlon II Dual Core P320 2.1Ghz 3GB DDR3 RAM 250GB 7200rpm Sata Hard Drive DVD RW +/- Lightscribe 15.6" Glossy Screen WXGA (1366 X 768) LED AMD Chipset ATI ...
Summary: Always something going wrong. Less than 18 months old and motherboard has broken down. Not to mention numerous crashes, loss of internet connection and many more problems. Better to save up and buy quality.
Summary: Overall, I have to say that I found the compaq to be a good laptop. It handles well and has a fair amount of storage and RAM. However, like many other laptops made my HP (Compaq) it has serious flaws reguarding battery life and overheating... Con's: *The battery life: realistically, I could only ever get about 2 hours out of this laptop when perfoming the kind of tasks that it is marketed to perform (music, video, internet).... this isn't really portability....
Summary: I hate to write a bad review but now I am stuck with a computer that doesn't work properly and just doesn't cut it. The hard drive has just failed again for the third time, less than a year after I bought it and the letters on the keypad have started to jam up when I try type. Faulty computer and bad luck or cheap design?
Pros: cheap price
Cons: broke down three times less than a year after it was purchased
