Summary: At first when i got this item it worked well a couple of months then it started giving me problems. The last thing is that it started shutting down on me. The seller has closed their return policy thus I am stuck with a worthless crap I paid almost $400.00 for
Summary: Even though I was unhappy with my last HP, I foolishly bought another. Just like the last one, it overheats, the battery has failed after less than two years and despite being fast to open when I first bought it, it is now slower than a grandma with arthritis.
Summary: I purchased this laptop for my parents just for internet browsing and skype. took 4 hours to set everything up on Windows 8 due to Microsoft wanting to control everything (had to recreate accounts for Skype and email) and not giving proper instructions. After ~8 months of use the wireless adapter started having problems, randomly stopped working and could only connect to the network after restarting the computer.
Summary: I've had my HP Pavilion G6 for several months now and it has incessant problems. I've had technicians look at it, I've had it fixed, and it STILL gives me various inscrutible "disk error" messages. I've easily spent two or three times the purchase price on repair bills. I'll never buy an HP again.
Summary: REviews said it was easy to use and durable to transport. I hate it. It will not copy my address book so I have to use my old computer to send and respond to emails. you will be typing and it flicks to the map screen. I hate windows 8. It is the most user unfriendly program I have ever used. I have copied all my files from the other computers and when I try to pull them off the thumb drive it tells me I have to buy a program for $99 per year.
Summary: I purchased this laptop because of its price and the number of stars it had received from other customers, so least to say I was very excited about my decision to buy it. It was delivered and everything was fine with the computer itself, but the processor on this particular laptop is extremely slow. I could not even watch a YouTube video without it stopping a couple times to load. I also tried to watch a show on network website and could not even get the video to load.
Summary: *1 Year Update* Two weeks ago I opened my laptop to find horizontal and vertical lines all over the screen. Luckily it was still covered under warranty so I sent the laptop in for a free repair. I was called a week later by HP explaining that the internal LCD screen was cracked, which could have only been from the result of damage, which is not covered under warranty. I couldn't believe it! I had done nothing to it what-so-ever.
Summary: Windows 8 is definitely a user hostile operating system. . It takes much longer to get at what I want than previous systems Then for no apparent reason the screen shifts to something completely uncalled for.
Summary: I bought this labtop and found I couldn't creat new folders. I contacted the buyer but didn't find any useful information. The problem was fixed by removing the norton anti-virus software that was preinstalled with the laptop and was activiated upon we receiving it. I once contacted the buyer about return and refunding and was told that there will be a 20%-30% restocking fee charged if the laptop dosen't have any hard-ware problem.
