Ok for practical basic use, but largely flawed.

  • Summary: I have owned this computer for almost 3 years, and even since I purchased it, it had severe issues with streaming from the internet. It does not respond after maybe 30 seconds of even a YouTube video, and slows the entire computer down. What is interesting is that it has no issues with playing audio/video from the hard drive itself, but as far as playing videos online, it is virtually impossible to watch an entire online video without it causing massive problems with...

Piece of crap!

  • Summary: I have had this laptop for about 2 or 3 years now and I can say I have had nothing but problems! First of all if you plan on laying down and using this computer, forget about it! The computer will shut down while your in the middle of something important or while playing a game. It's as if the computer can not breathe and automatically shuts off if the fan is covered or blocked by anything; it also gets EXTREMELY hot where the fan is.

Awful computer

holly, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this for our home computer in 2010 since then the computer has completely crashed, needed a new hard drive and has a defective keyboard. It has a nice, large screen with great resolution but this is one of the worst laptops I've had. We are now having problems with the cursor skipping around at random times - I cannot tell you how many emails I've accidentally sent due to a misplaced cursor. I've owned several other HP's and did not have these problems.

Lemon laptop. In a world of good and cheap laptops, do not subject yourself.

  • Summary: I got this laptop as a Christmas present before my deployment to Afghanistan. Long story short, this laptop worked fine until June, when it just totally crapped out on me en route to Afghanistan. The computer would not even turn on. HP was not really helpful and I wasted hours on the phone. Upon looking deeper into the problem at the HP forum, apparently this laptop has a lemon reputation and many people have this problem. Don't put yourself through this.

By far the WORST experience and investment ever!!!

C17flyer, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop rather hastily when my Sony Vaio laptops hard drive died after 6 years of service. Right out of the box this computers performance was mediocre at best mainly due to the vast array of HP programs (gimmicks)that come pre-installed. After about three months of ownership this HP product really started showing its evil and ugly face. It all started with what appeared to be a problem with the video/graphics card and/or its drivers.

Worst laptop I have ever owned.

Samm "ThisxisxSamm", Amazon

  • Summary: When I first got this laptop I wanted something for school work, my pictures and videos (I don't keep them on the laptop, just edit on it), and for browsing the web. With 4gb of Ram and a 500gb hard drive I assumed this would more than do the job. Within the first couple of weeks that I had it, I had to send it out to HP and have the keyboard replaced because my keys were getting stuck and falling off.

Clunky, cheap components, and poorly designed.

J. Peterson, Amazon
16 May 2012
  • Summary: First of all, I got this thing for $450 after the $50 HP mail-in rebate. But it's not even worth that, let alone the 700-850 it goes for on Amazon. Sure, it's got a big screen and a nice processor for a laptop. It's got a lot of RAM. It has a big hard drive. It has everything you would want. But the problem is that the components are such low quality. The machine makes a lot of noise, it's heavy, and it gets hot.

LCD display breaks, overheats, poor performance

The Truth, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • Summary: I had this computer for a little over a year before the LCD display when out due to a failed capacitor. The people at HP would not cover it because I wasn't under warranty anymore and they don't recognize claims as a result of cheap manufacturing. The repair was valued at $300, and for a $500 computer, the repair doesn't really warrant the price.

Total Piece of Junk

Moneyman, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this computer in December and after 5 weeks died. Contact HP and they tried to repair it but couldn't over the phone. So I shipped it too them and when it was returned it crashed that day. HP has the worst customer service and are terrible to deal with. Was promised a replacement & after waiting two weeks, no computer and was told they didn't have any more. Then they promised to build one and I waited 2 more weeks and still no computer.
