The unit gets pretty hot after 10-15 minute use

HGamerChic, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: I've had my Hp for about 3 years now and am currently searching for something else. It freezes randomly or all the actions are delayed. The unit gets pretty hot after 10-15 minute use, and theres not much ventilation. It also eats up battery fast, I get about 35-40 min with it being fully charged.

Good computer BUT FOR wi-fi going on and off... and HP not fixing

Keith, Amazon
5 May 2013
  • Summary: I would avoid this computer because the volume and wi-fi go off and on so often many people stop using the computer and swear they will never buy a HP again. This also affects the bluetooth. Personally the wi-fi became unusable and I started using an ethernet cable only. Some people posted there is a way to insulate wires to stop the problem but it takes a half hour and sounds complicated and technical.

Great screen, Windows 7 problems, no help and no reply

Mr. G. Matthews, Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought this from Amazon a couple of weeks ago - mid November 2009. This HP laptop has a large bright screen and the HP entertainment application supplied with it makes full use of it. At first I was thrilled. The HP Media software also provides a photo - cataloguing program, which again makes full use of the superb screen. If this is all you want, and you're buying all your software and hardware afresh, I would recommend this machine.

  • Excerpt: It might check quite a few of the good boxes but this product does, I have to say check nearly all of the bad boxes too. When buying this, there weren't any better laptops out there at the time and I needed one quick. So after having agreed to have this product I then realised the only one I could have is the one in the shop. So basically from day one I have had my issues with it, After two weeks of basic set-up and enjoyment was when it decided to shut off.
  • Pros: graphics, hard drive, RAM
  • Cons: Processor  -  same as every laptop

Muy potente pero con muchos fallos de fabrica

28 September 2011
  • Summary: Cuando lo vi dije que tenía que ser mío, en su momento era lo mejorcito que había, eso si, su precio era desorbitado en comparación con otras marcas con similares características pero pensé que aunque era más caro la marca HP era una garantía... ahí empezó mi calvario. El ordenador tiene fallos de fábrica que el servicio técnico no sabe resolver: -El primer fallo era que se calienta un montón, es normal con el procesador que tiene pero lo que no es normal es que te...
  • Pros: Muy potente y grande
  • Cons: Tiene grandes fallos que HP no es capaz de solucionar .

Sconsiglio assolutamente

  • Summary: Ho acquistato questo prodotto quasi due anni fa, quindi posso fornire una recensione esaustiva, lungimirante e completa di questo notebook dell'Hp che prometteva performances eccezionali, così eccezionale da giustificare il prezzo (ai tempi dell'acquisto il seguente oggetto costava duemila euro tondi tondi). Premetto che ho avuto sempre dei Vaio quindi ero abituata a ben altri standard di qualità.
  • Pros: estetica,memoria, qualità audio e video, velocità operativa
  • Cons: rapporto qualità prezzo pessimo, peso eccessivo, scarsa autonomia,si surriscalda come niente

User Review

  • Summary: Pese a lo que dice Hp, no es compatible con Vista. Todo parece ir bien, pero no hay manera de que funcione la tarjeta de sonido. Hp te dice que tienes que usar sus sistemas operativos vista y no un vista cualquiera por muy legal que sea. Mierda para ellos!!!!
