A life of 2 years

  • Summary: Save your money, this item is a complete waste of money and will cause severe headache. My first week of getting this laptop in 2/2010 it would not come on, using my desktop I had to search for a solution to get it back to working.

Seriously, choose another laptop. This one won't last.

  • Summary: OK, I never write reviews but if I can stop 1 person from making the mistake of purchasing this CQ61-420US - then it will be worth my time. This is the straight scoop so take it to heart: This is an OK cheap laptop.

just a shame.

  • Summary: This worked great at first, until about a year later. Charger died, battery power greatly reduced, and I had a problem with the overheating fan. I've had this laptop for a year and two months and it's already time to replace it.

4 Weeks In, Issues Already

  • Summary: I was going to buy an e-machine, but thought this would be better quality. I have an e-machine desk top that is still going after almost two years, however, this Compaq Presario no longer allows me to connect to the internet neither wirelessly nor with the enthernet cord.

Not great

  • Excerpt: I started with a fab, fast, funky laptop. Now, all I have is a laptop thats battery doesnt work so it must be plugged in at all times. The casing on the screen came apart, and cracked as I pushed it back on. It is slow and my internet/word (the main reasons I use it!) always crash.

Compaq Presario CQ61-225SA 15.6 inch Notebook

Skuttlefish, Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: This isn't the best Notebook on the market. If your are wanting to carry your notebook about with you, this isn't the one for you. It's quite flimsy and can't take any knocks. The power inlet has been temperamental.

Good but Touchpad Gave Problems + On/OFF Button

George in Jersey, Amazon
12 May 2010
  • Summary: The left button on the touchpad became very iffy after six months and the on/off button needed encouragement to operate easily. I used this notebook for business and pleasure so it was essential that I had a notebook with parts of high quality.

  • Summary: Mijn broer en ik hebben destijds in dezelfde periode twee van deze Compaqs gekocht, en beide vertoonden al snel kuren. Al vanaf het begin valt de laptop onverwachts uit. ondanks weinig intensief gebruik. Systeemherstel is soms nodig. De laptop/accu wordt erg heet.
  • Pros: Valt uit, loopt vast, wordt erg heet, slechte accu, geeft vanaf begin problemen
  • Cons: Mooi design
