Processor and memory great! I didn't think the internet connection speed for browsing would improve this much ! Set up was fairly easy. Great to have wireless output to printer. Is this more computer power than what's needed for playing around and doing business applications at home ? Yes. Do I regret having so much computer speed ? No. Not for a nano second. The only item I can envision upgrading in the future is the graphics card. But right now, I'm very content with the way things are on the PC.
This PC is a step up from the Acer laptop I've had for 7 years. It's a great PC with tons of power and the option to upgrade parts as necessary. The 8gigs of RAM is a great start for most high end programs and PC games. Visually, games and movies look outstanding and thus far, I've not had any problem. My only complaint is that it includes Norton Anti-virus and it's a very difficult program to remove. I prefer to use Comodo and it would be nice to see a computer company embrace the top rated antivirus program that is, of course, free. Norton has never been an outstanding program worth paying for; neither is McAfee.
Other than that, this computer was worth the money.
Have only had the HP for a couple weeks, but it is SO much better than my last tower (emachines) as it has more RAM and speed. It's also a LOT quieter! Have not had anything negative to say about it at this point. Am hoping I still love it in a year. Was easy to set up and has tons of USB ports. Would recommend to any of my friends.
Got a better deal, pricewise and options wise, then through HP.
I is working as I hoped it would. Fast and no problems. Easy for me
The HP Pavilion h8z, with AMD FX 8150 with a Radeon HD 6850 ROCKS!!!!!
"A Great Home/Gaming Machine" AMD offer a Big Bang for the Buck!!!!! "Hp put together a Good package deal" Very Pleased!!!!
All in all, an amazing purchase. semi cheap with high quality. could use a better case/air flow and I also installed a SSD drive after purchase.
This is an awsome computer. It was configured by hp for their quik ship program and it arrived in record time. We worked throught the issues with my older printers needing new drivers and they work just fine now. I have many photos on my hard drive and my old computer strugled to bring up all the thumbnail images. This computer does it with ease.
I got my HP Pavilion HPE h8-1240t Desktop PC super quick so I was very happy about that.
HP was allowed me to add an NVIDIA card to an affordable desktop PC. I can't say the same thing about Dell. Highly recommend this desktop.
This computer can probably do anything I throw at it. I bought it mainly to help me edit videos I do for my own edification, but I know that this memory will hold more than I will ever put into it. It doesn't hesitate or stop performing for any reason. I am enjoying getting to know Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 10---vast improvements on past software. I also like the layout...it is much easier to use.
My HP replaced a 6 year old Dell that was underpowered by today's standards and whose reaction time had slowed to a snail's pace despite everything I could do to clean it up and get rid of superfluous software, etc. I decided to get the solid state hard drive in the HP for speedy data exchange and guess what? It works. The core I-7 and 8 gb of memory help, too, I suppose. One phenomenon I notice is that, while it took only 9 seconds to fire up or shut down at first, it now takes more like 20 seconds. All I have really done is activate the full version of Office Home & Office. I have this suspicion that every Windows or HP update starts to slow things down, and am tempted to refuse as many updates as I think I can get away with. Regardless, the old computer took 10-15 minutes to start up or shut down, so I am happy with the improvement. And every operation is virtually instantaneous.
One point to consider: to wake the computer from sleep, I have to touch the start button on top of the computer. Since I have the box tucked into a shelf behind my desk, it's rather a long reach. I would prefer just jiggling the mouse to wake things up as my other computers do. Regardless, I am very happy with my new HP.
The overall performance of the H8xt is excellent. I am impressed with the features that HP has included with the machine, and the overall value is outstanding. With all of the future upgrades possible, this computer should fulfill my requirements for a long time.
Received my new HP Pavilion HPE I7 about a month ago. Shipment was timely and setting up was very easy. Less cables than my old Dell 8300. Start up is 20 times faster, 23 in. screen is bright and sharp. Still learning all the features. Love the 3.0 USB ports so moving data from old pc to backup storage to new pc was very east and very fast. Love it!
Have been a HP customer for over 15 years, I have HP desktop, laptop,printer, monitor & scanner. Never had a problem with any HP product & I really enjoy my new HPE H8xt computer.
Machine is great. More of a problem with Windows 7. Even after an upgrade to Windows 7 Professional, most of my older software won't work. They work on my laptop with the same configuration. Downloads and troubleshooting hasn't helped. HP computer works well. Super-fast! HP was fast and everything arrived as scheduled and was an easy setup. Pleased with the computer just not Microsoft!
The computer tour I ordered has great featues and runs very well. I especially like the raid feature with two 1.5 TB hard drives. Less wories about losing data.
This is a work station for a homebased business. We struggled with the old system, limping along and finally made the change. I couldn't be more excited about the speed and efficiency that I now work at! The features of the HP canvas are awesome. All I can say is "Thank you HP!"
I needed a computer with high speed, a large hard drive, and a lot of RAM for my photography. I happy to say that this HP machine satisfy those needs and then some.
I also have a variety of items I need to connect to the computer via USB ports. This machine has many more than I ever had. They are also placed on the front, in back and on top. Very convenient.
This is my first HP computer. In the past I bought from another well known manufacturer. From here on in I am a HP convert. From the ease in configuring the features and options that I wanted to the performance in handling very large files. I am impressed.
I will recommend this computer and HP to anyone looking for a computer.
This machine runs a LOT faster than my old XP. Easy set up and everything is working great so far.
This is the best computer we have every purchased. It is super quiet. The only way you know its on usually is looking at the red bar on the front of it. It is very fast when it processes and it starts up extremely fast. Highly recommend this unit.
