Summary: I have been working on computers for 35+ years. I have always had a corporate laptop and personal ever since they became available to the public. Many of them including this one were hp. By far this is the cheapest & worse POS I have ever owned. Broken hinge, can not close it.
Left hinge broke - and part of the monitor frame cracked
10 June 2015
Summary: Stay away from HP. After a short usage the left hinge broke - and part of the monitor frame cracked. HP IS NOT GOING TO HELP YOU - THEY WILL TRY TO RIP YOU OFF. HP will charge you 200$ to get it fixed - their own poor design & flimsy materials!!!
Summary: I really wanted to love this laptop, but it was in fact NOT on fleek. That left hinge buckled its knees and hit a ferocious whip just like everyone said it would. tybg for reviews like this. Holla.
Summary: I've been using one of these for a few years now, and I regret purchasing it. It overheats really quickly, and I frequently have issues with the touchpad working. If you're in the market for a laptop, please avoid HP.
Summary: Fairly awesome overall as far as performance, however the screen is not attached very well. After about a year, the screen portion cracked and separated from the keyboard portion. I've managed to continue to use it through the use of duct tape.
Summary: Pros: Nice sleek look. Cons: The annoying fan sound that will come after a few minutes, seriously it sounds like one of those OLD pc's. HINGES will break, just found out on HP forums that this is a very common defect, it will happen, and it will cost you good money to change. HP never again,
Summary: Ok, so I apparently did what the other reviewer Timothy K Ramey did in not reading all reviews first before my purchase. He posted is review Feb. 2013 and I bought my HP Envy in April 2013 and my experience regarding the laptop is identical.
Summary: HP does not stand behind their products. After contacting their customer service center (a call center outside the country) and being dissatisfied, they had a representative from their corporate office call me back.
