HORRIBLE

slworthi, Amazon
4 days ago
  • Summary: I've now had this laptop for a little over a year. It's had minimal use (about once per month for simple online banking use), and out of nowhere it did a regular update/restart, and now it will not turn back on. It tries to restart, but then just continues to "restart" and never actually makes it to the desktop. Beyond disappointed and frustrated, especially since I started working from home the SAME day this happened.

  • Summary: Keyboard didn't work. Tried contacting seller and we kept "missing" each other. I finally gave up and had to take it to a computer ship to be fixed.

HP Sucks.

William Helenbrook, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Nothing but problems in the year that I've had this computer. They've replaced the hard drive, the webcam twice, fans, etc...and still it doesn't work. They wouldn't even repair it without charging me another $160 and then it still didn't work. This is my 3rd and final HP. They suck, their computers suck and there customer service is useless.

The glossy screen is great if used in a completely dark room

Carlie Bentley, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: 13 Months before motherboard failure. No warranty service. New, direct from HP replacement motherboard, $298 out of pocket, lasted 4 months. The touchpad is not recessed far enough, and it's annoyingly sensitive. The click buttons for the touchpad are only slightly less noisy than my diesel truck. The glossy screen is great if used in a completely dark room, if you're narcissistic.

Not As Advertised

mattinacan, Amazon
29 December 2014
  • Summary: *Warning* Laptop not as advertised. HP is advertising an AMD Elite Quad-Core A8-5550M with an AMD Radeon HD 8550G graphics card. What you will receive is an Quad-Core A8-4500M with a Radeon HD 7640G graphics card. This was a gift for my gf on christmas, it ran slow for her out of the box, confusingly hogging up 70% physical memory just sitting open with no apps running. Item has been returned.

Only buy this for a paperweight

Nick Trussell, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: This laptop worked ok out of the box but shortly after it became a large paperweight. I have tried to no avail to return it to factory settings and starting over, however that too leads to crashing and lock-ups. I am ready to just chuck it in the trash and chalk up my money as a loss.

User Review

Webmicester, Walmart
13 December 2014
  • Summary: Not only was this computer slow, Mcafee came pre-installed and kept the browsers from going to https sites, such as google.com. Had to do a lot of fixing on it. Touchscreen didn't work out of the box. Returned it to walmart and got an Aspire E17. The Aspire is super fast and worked right out of the box (after setup of course).
