practicaly useless

mike1of3, Amazon

  • Summary: Nothing but problems from the start. Had to replace the hard drive after 1 month and now 12 months later it'd going out again. Always freezing up, I have to restart it several times a day. I keep getting a Low Disk Space warning but it shows I have only used 20% of the disk.

When things got so bad that the machine was virtually unusable I tried to ...

  • Summary: Never had a problem with HP products before. This one has been a nightmare. I bought it from Tiger Direct a year ago. Within two months I started getting vertical lines across the screen. It's NOT a screen issue as they appear on the external monitor as well.

I still dislike Windows 8

KYM DARLING, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had computer for a year. I use it every day for personal and work. While I have gotten use to it, I still dislike Windows 8. A previous reviewer stated that Windows 8 doesn't affect performance, but it does. If the software sucks, at least for you, how can the computer work good for you.

Heating problems

Donald R Pierce, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I own 4 of these laptops. The first several months were good. My 3 teenage daughters and I are all advanced computer users. They absolutely know not to use the laptop on your lap. It blocks the vents for the fans and causes the computer to heat up.

Piece of Junk

Amy Cardinale, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Do not buy this laptop if you plan to use wifi. It it works out of the box, it will eventually stop working. For the first 6 months, the laptop performed fine and wifi worked well. Then as time went on, the connection became inconsistent, to the point that it now does not work at all.

It's just okay

Rayman, Amazon
2 March 2014
  • Summary: Actually, I don't like it much.I really hate the way it's laid out. Makes using the keyboard difficult, however it seems all computers these days have the same basic design. Windows 8 and 8.1 suck (go back to 7, except you cannot). HP always comes packed with so much junk as well.

This computer sucks!

Michael Jordan, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: This thing is so slow! My computer from 2008, with just a duo core AMD chip and 4GB of DDR2 RAM, blows this thing out of the water. Windows 8 is equally as lame. From day one, it would not configure Windows updates.

Great hardware but massively excessive bloatware.

Bill, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Bought this same laptop, as a refurb, elsewhere a few of months ago. For the price I paid(around $440) it's a blazing fast laptop capable of playing games (mostly TF2) at high settings. Not having a touchscreen is a bit of a hassle.

Worst computer on the market? You tell me.

Tarby, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Well, I have the same story as all the all the rest of the 1-3 stars reviews. I think I got the biggest lemon TWICE (returned the first one). Here is a very SMALL list of my experience/complaints with the HP Envy dv7-7240us 17.3-Inch Notebook. 1.
