  • Summary: I had this laptop for 15 month and problem started from month 1. 1. Wifi indicator above keyboard kept jumping on and off which is frustrating when you doing something online - I had to buy external wifi adapter to solve the problem. Reinstalling factory defaults didn't help. 2. Operating system was installed on SLOWER Hard Drive - yes, one is 7200 which factory setup as spare and installed everything on 5400r HD! 3. Super cheap plastic for keyboard.

Poor products & support (in my expierence)

  • Excerpt: "...does not work with the HP product. Can you belive that HP make computers, that DO NOT work with Microsofts upgraded systems. The DV8 is my worst purchase, and after, just over 1 year, has completley failed. Its now destined to the rubbish tip,(wher it belongs) and instead of wasting anymore time with HP, I will simply purchase from a diffferent manufacturer. In my opinion the service and after care HP has afforded me, is not in keeping with ...
  • Pros: no advantages at all over any other rivals -  who have  less expensive more reliable products
  • Cons: To many to mention but a key one is  -  poor after sales

HP poor products & support

rvp, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had DV8 for a year. It has been my worst ever purchase. I have had nothing but problems and issues with it. HP support has been long winded, drawn out and very poor. Even though I have asked for a replacemnt machine several times they refused. The DV8 which I hardly use is just out of warranty and apparently the hard disk has failed.The machine does not work at all. HP has constantly refused to do anything about all the other issues and this.

SLOW AND OVERPRICED!!

Just a great guy, Amazon
28 October 2009
  • Summary: This notebook is unfortunately slow despite the fact that it uses the new core i7 processor. This notebook runs BY DEFAULT only at 1.6 GHz (the 2.8 GHz turbo boost mode runs only in very specific and very limited circumstances!). Therefore, this processor is sadly slow!! As this is a gaming machine, HP had the common sense to put 7200 rpm hard disks!! The problem is that it does not help improving the slowness of the system in general!

HP Pavillion DV6400 inaffidabile . Assistenza tecnica macchinosa.

Lumun, Ciao
21 August 2010
  • Summary: Premetto che il mio non è purtroppo un caso isolato. Informazioni anche sul blog: http://woznihack.wordpress.com/2009/04/17/hp-pavilion-serie-dv6000-e-i-loro-difetti/ Poco più di due anni fa ho comprato online da Mediaworld un portatile 15" HP 8400 DV. Lo avevo scelto perchè, servendomi un portatile (che sarebbe servito anche per lavoro) avevo notato che questo aveva l'uscita video DV e poteva sostituire un lettore ad alta definizione da tavolo.
  • Pros: Non molti .  Apparecchio di medie prestazioni .  scheda video della serie difettosa .
  • Cons: Garanzia di macchinosa applicazione e contatto tecnici a pagamento .  Sconsigliato !

  • Summary: Ciao, io ho anche io acquistato a caro prezzo questo pc (1300 euro) dopo un pò di tempo ha iniziato a fare uno strano rumore, si bloccava e si riavviava nonostante gli infiniti ripristini! Inviato in assistenza la prima volta : NESSUN PROBLEMA RISCONTRATO (14 giorni) Inviato in assistenza la seconda volta: NESSUN PROBLEMA RISCONTRATO (15 giorni) Il venditore che nemmeno aveva testato la macchina si rende conto che il problema esiste: HD DIFETTOSO.
  • Pros: Ci sono Vantaggi?
  • Cons: pagare 1300 euro da computer discount e tenerlo tutto il tempo in assistenza

  • Summary: Poichè ho comperato siffato portatile spendendo i suindicati soldini, e poichè il pc in questione si è distrutto almeno 10 volte in due anni di vita vi posso consigliare di non comperarlo mai. La ram è l'unica parte che ancora non si è rotta quindi penso che non ci vorrà molto tempo x si guasti!!!
  • Pros: nessuno
  • Cons: solo svantaggi

Fate attenzione alla porta Firewire!!!!!!

Revalenger, Ciao
18 September 2006
  • Summary: Ho aquistato pochi giorni fa un portatile HP Pavilion DV8283EA presso un centro EURONICS a Caserta al costo di 1700 Euro ( A loro dire, in offerta...) dopo poco però, l'amara sorpresa...La porta Firewire risulta essere difettosa, ma tale difetto si evidenzia soprattutto con i segnali inviati a periferiche audio esterne ( ne sono state provate diverse) , e più precisamente l'audio giunge frammentato.
  • Pros: La configurazione
  • Cons: La porta Firewire DIFETTOSA !  !  !
