Some experiences to share

W. H Tang "Reader", Amazon

  • Summary: I do agree with the majority of the comments. It is a very nice laptop for the price. As I tried to upgrade the 1T HDD to 256 GB SSD, I encountered the difficulty of dissembling the laptop as I had to remove about 20 screws, the laptop keyboard surface, all the ribbon cables, and the hard drive case. It was a very tedious job. I had to be very careful on handling the keyboard surface and the ribbon cables.

Letters on the keyboard seem to double up pretty often and it doesn't seem to be as fast ...

  • Summary: Letters on the keyboard seem to double up pretty often and it doesn't seem to be as fast as I thought it would be - other that that is seems to be ok, however, this is very frustrating.

I hate windows8!!!

seshomarou, Amazon

  • Summary: The hardware seems to work fine, though there is a recall out on the power adapter. There is no DVD or Blu-ray. I thoroughly and utterly hate windows8. I can not put the completeness of my disgust into words. It is obviously designed to sell junk. Apps Apps Apps all over the place, but to get any of them to work? Pay pay pay. I hate windows8!!!

Backlit Keyboard

TimJ, Costco
19 November 2014
  • Summary: I don't own this exact model laptop, but a similar HP ENVY, and had a similar experience with the backlit keyboard as the earlier reviewer. You need to turn the backlighting on and off with the F5 key (maybe the reviewer has since learned this). It doesn't come on and stay on all the time by default, it's a feature that is enabled as needed with the F5 key. I absolutely required this feature in my latest laptop and it's really beneficial when working in poorly lit areas.

Otherwise performance is good etc. Standard bloatware for HP is installed

Steven L. Prochaska "sprochaska", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a decent laptop for the cost but don't be fooled. This is not an aluminum case. It's plastic as I recently found out. I dropped it maybe a foot on accident and cracked the back. Only had it for a week. Never seen this before in a mid range laptop. Otherwise performance is good etc. Standard bloatware for HP is installed.

  • Summary: When first bought: So far so good! 12-05-2014 update: The looker-design is good, but the fan runs consistently and this is getting an-n-n-noying :(. Want to reduce the stars... Anyone know how to turn off the on-board fan when the machine is cool?

and to be honest i am not fully satisfied with the product

Samir Qasimov, Amazon

  • Summary: i have recently bought this laptop, and to be honest i am not fully satisfied with the product. The computer is really fast , but it makes a lot of noise that is not related to working process. Sometimes space button does not work. Besides, Battery does not fit to its place which makes me get annoyed.Overall, it deserves only 3 star.

It's not bad.....but the quality feels cheap.

Titus Lennon, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: The Laptop is good for the price. The speed is fine so far. My only gripe with this is that it feels cheaply built. I'm VERY careful with this. It just feels like it'll break if I look at it too hard.

without it though the audio would be crap. With it

lbrown23, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: To start, I was expecting a lot. The Cons:The build seems to be normal which I would expect from a laptop half the price. The Beats Audio is disappointing, without it though the audio would be crap. With it, the sound is average at best, again not what I was expecting. My biggest gripe is the touchpad. I have used MBpros before and the touchpads do not compare. I almost wish I had sent the computer back. Oh and the battery is very short life.
