Love My Computer

Customer review by LisaM1307

I spent many hours reviewing computers and this was my final decision. I wanted a large screen and yet I didn't want it to be extremely heavy. I had to sacrifice some battery life because of the processor but the computer runs so well, it was worth it. The large screen really helps ease some strain because I use my laptop as my main computer. Not a big fan of Windows 8 however that is not the computers fault. My computer has run seamlessly and the picture is large plus clear. Beats Audio is awesome! I had it on a previous cell phone so I enjoy the music quality. I have been using my computer for a few weeks now and I cannot imagine running my old computer anymore. It was so slow and small compared to this lovely device. If you want a large screen, fast processor, and do not mind a slightly shorter battery life then go with this computer. I feel it was the best choice I could have made on a limited budget. I love it! I also love HP. I had a Dell previously and I am glad I made the switch.

Awesome laptop, well built, high quality. Usually buy other brands, haven't bought an HP for over 10 years. HOWEVER, after researching the specs and reviews of this laptop, I decided to give HP another try. Very glad I did! Very fast and nice display, seems very solid. It also has lots of expandability. 2nd HD bay, up to 16Gb RAM in the 2 slots (which I am upgrading soon). FOLKS - Windows 8 is great - don't pay attention to the naysayers. It is a little different than previous Windows releases, but you will like it. My advice is to watch a few online videos about the new Start screen which replaces the Start button. That's really most of the differences. I am a senior software engineer (over 25 years of experience) and I highly recommend Win8. Just take some time to watch some training videos, figure out the touchpad shortcuts, and you will be fine. Hot tip - I couldn't find the Control Panel. Watched a video and found out you can right-click in the lower left corner and it all comes up (Control Panel, Event Viewer, etc.). VERY COOL. You will love this laptop and Windows 8. Cheers!

Worst HP product I have seen.

This is by far the worst HP computer I have seen, possible the worst computer period. I purchased this model and had to return it with in the first week. The speakers did not work right, different screens would pop up at random times, it had a sharp metal edge and many more problems. They sent me the same model, and from the time it came out of the box I have had nothing but problems. After I went through the original set up process, it told me windows would not work and I had to do the whole set up again. After that it made me personalize twice as well. On top of that one of the keys sticks every time you use it, so you have to pop it back out, and the screen cover pops when you touch it. It also has a glitch internally, while searching the web it will randomly pop up and say Internet connection lost, while it loads the page. To make matters worse I called HP and they wanted to send me the same model again, or I could buy the same model in the 15.6 screen and pay them more money. They were not helpful at all. I had always thought very highly of HP, but now I will never by another HP laptop.

This is the first-time ever that I've been motivated to write a review of any purchased product. Bottom line is I'm returning this HP Envy laptop because the network adapter (for wireless connections) is, to put it bluntly, a piece of garbage. The laptop could connect wirelessly if it was immediately next to my router, but take it a little distance or a room or two away, and the signal was lost. I don't have that problem with any of my other devices including other HP laptops. I can only conclude that HP installed a very cheap, poor quality network adapter in this HP laptop for sale at Wal-Mart. Perhaps the biggest indignity, however, was dealing with HP Support over the phone. I'll describe some of the details below that spanned conversations with 4 different tech reps, 3.5 hours of my time, 2 calls that were not returned as promised, and 1 supervisor that left me hanging on the phone until the phone disconnected. HP support had me: (1) remove and reseat the network adapter - something that most any consumer should NEVER be asked to do, nor should we be expected to have the tools at hand to do it; (2) refresh my PC wiping out my newly purchased Windows Office 2013; and (3) call my router company to determine if my router settings were correct. They gave me a case number that was not found later in the system, nor was any of my account info. I had to repeat the serial and product numbers four times for four different tech reps. Finally, they refused to send me a new network adapter -- even though an earlier tech had indicated that was what they would do -- and instructed me to return the product to the store. I have had good luck in the past buying HP products at other stores. I've lost my confidence both in HP products and their Support operation. My only recommendation is if you buy this product and encounter a significant problem out of the box, return it rather than dealing with HP Support.

This computer is terrible

Customer review by blahblah83

This is the worst HP computer I have ever purchased. Have had it for about 4 months and it just runs horrible.. It's slower than my old HP, the keys only register about 75% of the time when you push them, especially the space bar. The mouse doesn't register about 80% of the time. I have tried using Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Chrome and all 3 web browsers lock up every 30-45 seconds for about 10-15 seconds so when trying to scroll through pictures or watch a video is virtually impossible. Also for no reason the computer will turn it self off and reboot. Then upon start up it says "Your PC has run into a problem and was forced to shut down" It has done that approximately 50 times since purchase. To me it sounds like it is probably windows 8 but without being able to put 7 on theres no way to tell.

Overall Great Computer!

I've only had this computer a few days but overall I love it. The weight is perfect and the size is great. I love that it has the numeric keypad built in so that I don't have to buy a separate accessory. The only thing I would change on it is the Windows 8. I wish HP had given you a choice of what operating system to install as I'm not a big fan of W8. I guess I'll just use it till Microsoft comes out with something better. Also - I've noticed that the Beats Audio doesn't really make that much of a difference in the sound compared to my basic, work laptop. The biggest difference that I've seen is that it's louder and has a little deeper tones to it. Overall still a great computer that I would recommend :).

Great computer, but some flaws

Customer review by Walt48me

Overall I really like my new Envy. WIN8 took some getting use to, but after the learning curve I found that I like it. Some of the apps are great and make routine functions more convenient. My biggest gripe with WIN8 is the game package. I miss the WIN7 games. A wireless mouse does make it easier. Using the touch pad effectively is a skill that eludes me. Startup speed and overall performance is the best I've seen in a computer. Wireless speed surprised me. When in the same room as the router, I get the same speed as on a wired connection. Previous laptops had a significant drop in speed even next to the router. The HD display is fantastic. One flaw being when the action is very fast it isn't as smooth as on a TV. That was noticed in a SCI-FY movie and isn't typical. The same movie played without the stutter when streamed to TV. Other than that minor setback, I find watching movies on it quite enjoyable. The built in speakers are surprisingly good and external speakers are not needed. My biggest complaint is the video card. I got the NVIDIA 2GB video card and discovered it was wasted money. There is no way to make the computer use it instead of the built in video adapter, which uses shared memory. The story is that the computer will use it "when it's needed." If I had known that up front, I would have added memory rather than buying a useless add-on.

Great for Gaming!!!

I bought this model because, with the options I selected, it was highly recommended for gaming . . . and that has proven to be the case . . . the speed is awesome, the graphics are excellent, the Beats audio is just as good as Bose, if not better . . . so if you're into gaming, or just want a system that will give you excellect sound . . . at a VERY affordable price, then this system is for you!!! I received it with Windows 8 and, while I prefer my old XP desktop system, the Windows 8 program isn't that hard to figure out . . . so go for it!!!

Best Bang For Your Buck!

This laptop is so good for the price that u get it at! pros: screen size (17.3"), beats audio, memory (6gb) and hard drive (750gb), cons: just wish it had a little better processor, only because FPS shooters just don't run on this laptop. All other games work fairly excellent, anywhere from medium-high graphics. ex: sim city runs at medium at around 20 fps 30 on low...eve online ultra graphics at a solid 30 it all depends on the game! This is a Great product for the price and cant get anything like this anywhere else but HP!

Just received this laptop in the mail today, so far its been great. Ran into a few bumps here and there just because of my lack of Windows 8 knowledge. The OS is very simple once you acquaint yourself with it. A lot of apps come with the system, if that isn't your thing you can easily remove them. All in all this is a great value and so far a great system. If you're looking for maximum bang for your buck this is the way to go.
