Substandard product. Use your money on something more practical (like 600 bags of Skittles)

Books_n_stuff, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: It pains me to write this review just from the memories and heartache this laptop produced. 1 star is being overly generous for a product that is substandard and from a company that produces the worst quality laptops one could ever imagine. I mean seriously, $600 is a lot of money to fork out for a product that literally falls apart in your hands. Okay, I'm exaggerating. But not by much. What a piece of junk!

over heats, speakers shot soon after purchase

Stephanie191213, Amazon

  • Summary: Not a good laptop. I bought it for the size - only b/c it overheats every 10 minutes, I have to carry a cooling pad around with it. Also, speakers are shot after 8 months.

Do not buy an HP laptop

Bookworm, Amazon
16 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought 2 HP laptops and have had nothing but trouble. 1 laptop had to go back to the shop three times: once because the bracket connecting the screen to the keyboard broke, once because the hard drive was defective and once because the sound card was defective. One time I sent it to HP and they returned my computer still broken. My other laptop had to be returned to the factory because the hard drive was defective.

Avoid HP, worst service/warranty support there is

Jeff S. Connell, Amazon
20 August 2009
  • Summary: I had a similar problem with one of the other reviewers here. HP would not service my laptop due to "customer related damage" which it was obviously not. There is a reason they are dead last in all customer service polls. God forbid if you need actually service. Between dealing with people in India, which most barely speak English, and zero warranty support, take your money elsewhere. HP is the worst service experience I have ever had by a longshot.

HP = Horrible Problem

Deimos ".", Amazon
20 August 2009
  • Summary: Never buy a computer or anything from HP. I've had a HP printer, Camera and the HP Pavilion and none of them worked right for more than a month, then components start failing. HP products are a total rip off and their computer hardware is garbage, the battery sucks, the keys and trackpad are anything but responcive and it's sluggish as hell. Avoid HP, HP-Compaq, Compaq like the plague. What did the HP/Compaq merger accomplish you wonder.

MORE THAN MEET THE EYES

Craig R. Rijkaard, Amazon
16 August 2009
  • Summary: I AM VERY DISPLEASE WITH THIS PURCHASE, I ONLY USE IT FOR BUSINESS PURPOSES AND IT IS CAUSING ME GREAT DISTRESS. IT OVERHEAT TO THE POINT WHERE IT SHUT DOWN AND I CANNOT DO ANYTHING UNTIL IT COOL OFF AND BY THE TIME I START WORKING IT SHUTS DOWN AGAIN SINCE IT KEEPS OVERHEATING. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS LAPTOP AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS AT ALL.

HP Pavilion DV2-1030US Nice looking but "worthless to buy"!

M. Eskandari, Amazon
5 July 2009
  • Summary: I know why the price goes down every day! -works as a turtle and if you open 3 or more internet explorer freezes. -Battery life instead of factory's notes is so short. No more than 2 hours. -Blue screen again! I cant believe it. During working with it hanging of system happens and you have to shutdown the system by pressing and holding of power button. -A lot of bloatware that slows the processor. -Touch pad scroller is inaccurate.

Overheating, short battery life

Peter L. Young "zhongguotong", Amazon
2 May 2009
  • Summary: The Office Depot tech sales guy was pushing this. I think I am gonna return it. It overheats and gets very hot, and battery life is nothing special. Keyboard is sort of cramped and hard to type. The surface is shiny but easy for you to leave "finger prints". Nothing exciting in spite of the large RAM and hard drive. Seems and "oversell". See these reviews before you buy especial of the Laptop and CNET reviews also linked here: [...

Déconseille fortement ce produit

Lyliae, Ciao
27 August 2011
  • Summary: Dès les premiers mois après avoir acheté cet ordinateur, les problèmes suivant sont survenus : écran noir (clignotant) , lenteur , surchauffe et s'éteint brusquement, impossible de le débrancher (batterie morte). Ce qui est également assez "énervant" c'est le lecteur de disque, qui s'ouvre alors qu'on lui a rien demandé... L'entreprise HP a reconnu une faille de construction dans cet ordinateur, (et dans les autres HP pavilion) d'où tous ces problèmes...
  • Pros: La mémoire
  • Cons: Faille dans la construction qui engendre des tas de problème (batterie, écran noir, surchauffe)
