This computer replaces a pretty old one. A lot of research and comparison shopping went into this purchase, so I know I got the best computer for my needs. So far it has performed beautifully. I love the big monitor. Great package!
Haven't had it very long yet but we are really happy with it and it's performance so far. We had an older computer so getting used to Windows Vista is different, but then any new computer takes some getting used to.
Excellent computer for the price we paid for it. It is actually one of the best computers I have used in a long time.
The pc works and looks wonderful, but I think the windows vista still is presenting some issues that allow some problems in the performance of the pc. The internet explorer shuts itself down very often and for moments it slows down all the performance of the pc when it's related to anything online.
other than working with Vista.....this is a very good pc. I especially like the monitor, you know as you age everything wears out, like your eyes! I do love this big screen. I had just bought a laptop and it was absolutely driving me nuts with it's tiny screen (15.4) just not big enough.
This computer was very easy to set up and everything I have came across so for is very self explanitory. I am very satisified with this product.
Very easy to setup entire system
The picture on the monitor is outstanding.
For the price of this computer it is a great buy for students, or a family desktop.
I purchased this computer for my daughter who is in college and it can handle all the stuff she likes to download and her school work too.
This computer and monitor was easy to set up. It is so much faster than my last computer and the display on the monitor is awesome. If you are sending for the Windows 7 upgrade, I would recommend that you upload the information than faxing. It is much faster to upload. My upgrade is already in the mail to me.
I upgraded the memory card to a pny 8500 gt force and I'm adding 2 more gig of memory, Seems to be an excellent machine for the buck, bought the 2 year extended warranty and it comes with 1 year, thats about how long a machine seems to last me..Oh and the monitor is fantastic I expected allot of glare but was amazed that there was very little..
This compueter meets basic needs for example everyday web surfing, text writing, and much more. This compuer is not inteded for gaming such as online mmorpgs or other fast graphic pased games. The reason for this is because of the intregrated graphic card. you get alot of picture and entertainment storage. The monitor is wonderful it provides a great and clear picture. overall this computer is great for every day family needs.
This computer was bought as a compromise with my wife, who is always trying to save a few dollars. The problem with that is that one gets that for which one pays.
Inside, there is a 350 watt power supply that is barely adequate to power the RAM installed. If you want to add anything else, you'll need to repalce the supply with at least 500 watts. That'll cost about $100.
The motherboard has limited expansion slots, so you won't be adding much.
There is only one VGA port, so forget multiple monitors unless you add another video card. I did that and it disabled the onboard VGA. Adding a card will cost from $100 - $300.
The DVD player/writer couldn't make recovery disks without errors. HP DVD's are prone to overheating when playing long DVD's or writing a lot of files to it. This is important, because you can't make backups unless you limit the number of files written in a session. Repalcing it with a Sony will cost about $125.
The keyboard has a layout that will have you hitting the delete key instead of the return key.
The only good part of the system is the monitor, and it's hard to read if there is any source of glare.
This computer is "the gift that keeps on taking." If you have unlimited funds for replacing the bad parts, you'll love it. Otherwise, go with Dell or Gateway. The initial cost may be higher, but they won't be obsolete next week.
I got this computer for my son's. They love it. Especially the big monitor. This is great for any age. Very powerful.
excellent product outstanding performance and a good value
This computer combo was everything I hoped it would be--except that I didn't like the keyboard because the keys don't respond quickly enough, and it's necessary to pound on them. This is just a personal preference, I guess. The monitor is extraordinary, and everything was very easy to assemble.
I needed some technical assistance from HP, and their staff was extremely helpful and patient.
This product has met every expectation I thought and I am in the process of passing this info on to my church for their upgrade.
You couldn't do any better price-wise...nice unit, great sized monitor...just not crazy about the speaker system.
We got this computer for my grandson for school and gaming. The verizon wireless card plugs right in and it was up and running in no time. No problems.
The monitor is amazing. My grandson is really impressed with it. The colors are brilliant.
I want a new computer now too. What a great value!
I was extremely happy with the computer and it arrived very fast. Thank You for a great product.
This is a amazing computer! It was a little hard to set up, but totaly worth it!!! It's fast and it works right out of the box! It has a great picture and works great! The only time it slowed down was when i was trying out the new shake feature on windows 7 (that was when I opened up around 8 different windows) and also by the way, Windows 7!!!! It's amazing sooo much better than the old Windows Vista =/ I recomend this computer to anyone who loves powerhouses! This is a amazing computer!
