Not Happy

ADMIRAL, Staples
12 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Have purchased many Hp products over years. This was the the first refurbished unit that I purchased. Looked great clean and shinny. Unit was slow for being I7. Had problems with unit, resetting when in a program. Would freeze. When shutting off it would start updating about 130 upgrades.and when starting up it would say recognizing upgrades and would last for a while. It did this every time when shut off.

  • Summary: This laptop constantly freezes and took more than an hour to load when it was first turned on. Not worth the time.

  • Summary: I heard that there are some good refurbished laptops out there. This is NOT one of them! It's way too slow for having an i7 processor. It supposed to be super fast! This is super slow! And it's not just slow online. It's slow just using the computer for whatever programs you have or just looking at pictures or playing a game. And it turns off at will with no warning! It just, Poof! Shuts off!!! I will NEVER get a refurb from Walmart ever again!

Burnt my hand

  • Summary: HP laptops have been disappointing to me. I personally would not buy another HP product. But I have this laptop for work. If you are left-handed, you operate the mouse next to the fire-breathing cooling fan exhaust and your hand will be burnt. This laptop runs hot; the exhaust temperature exceeds 55C. So why does HP place the cooling on the left side not on the back? After a year of use, the first button on the touchpad stuck and is no longer useable.

Awful. Do not buy!

  • Summary: This is the worst computer I've ever owned. The specs are impressive, but it was incredibly poorly designed. The placement of the fan makes it so that the computer overheats and shuts itself off regularly. If you're doing any kind of work that requires heavy processor usage, save early and save often, because this hunk of junk WILL crash on you. Not only that, it's heavy. I recommend that you use this PC as a paperweight, but not a computer.
