I needed to replace my 8 year old HP that ran XP. Decided to stay with a desktop, but went with this all-in-one option. It was very easy to set up. Windows 8.1 had already been loaded in. I had taken some 8.1 classes so navigating my new computer has not been difficult. I love the touch screen. It is so much faster than my old one. What an improvement! I've only had it 2 weeks, but so far so good.
This Pavillion 23 all-in-one was perfect for my limited space requirements. Still getting used to Windows 8, but the touch screen makes navigation between the app page and the desktop manageable. This HP computer has brilliant screen resolution and amazing sound from the internal speakers. Easy to use when updating my website, adding photographs to social media sites and working on my blogs.
Came a day earlier than expected. Works as described. Very satisfied. Just takes a bit to get used to Win8. But, that isn't the fault of HP or the pc itself. The machine is worth the price. Saw the same machine on the shelf in my local Walmart for $798! Get this while it lasts online!
The computer was easy to set up, not a lot of wires to plug in, very easy to use the big screen is good for older folks. The only draw back is I do not care for windows 8, not comfortable using it, maybe after I figure it all out I'll like it better. I bought the book windows 8 for dummies senior.
The computer itself is great.
I like the looks of the computer very much, delivery was delayed and did not meet stated delivery date. Setup for the computer was very confusing for a "computer illiterate". Top that off with apparent software and hard drive problems, an almost eight(8) hour phone call to HP Support Group (located in India), non-understandable accents, technicians and "supervisors" giving totally opposite diagnosis for the problems, final solution? Expediating a "recovery disk", should receive on Tuesday, HP supervisor is off on Wednesdays, will call me on Thursday though with instructions how to use "recovery disk". Really?? As I said, the computer design (all-in-one) looks really sharp "sitting" on my computer desk.
I love this HP. I have four Dells in the house 3 laptops and 1 desktop paid a lot of money for them. I would recommend this computer. I bought it refurbished and a Walmart 3 year service plan.
Windows 8 takes some getting used to along with the touch screen. It all comes together after a few hours of navigating. This is the second refurbished product I have purchased and would not hesitate to purchsase refurbished again. Very fast processor speed.
the computer arrived earlier than promised. could not tell that it was ever opened. looked and preformed like new. windows 8 takes a little learning to use, but after awhile I am sure I will get used to it. I have only had it for 5 days. hope it doesn't stop working the day after I write this. lol
For the money this is a great computer. It was light on RAM with only 4 GB, so I added more which was not difficult. Every things works great. It would be nice if it came with Windows 8.1 to avoid the long upgrade. The screen is a good size with a great picture. There was no problem with the computer being refurbished rather than new. Overall, the average computer person will be happy with this computer.
Machine worked extremely well out of the box. Set up was easy, tweaking it to get everything as I like it has proven to be a bit more difficult. Pretty large learning curve after Windows XP and Windows 7. Having to search for lots of things. Would have rated 5 stars, but, I don't like the mail program in Windows 8.1. Have not been able, so far, to find compatible email to add on to windows 8.1. All in all good experience with a nice machine at fair price. Still tweaking and adding on. And learning system.
Love the large screen; easy to set up; received 7 days early; great value for the price.
This refurbished computer looks and operates like new. No problems transferring files from my old computer using a data transfer cable. It is fast and has a good graphics display. Nothing negative about the purchase so far. I purchased another refurbished touch screen a couple of years ago and it is still operating well, so I had complete confidence in buying a refurbished product.
Wished that it would have had the total package of Windows 8. Basic package not useful.
I was debated on sending it back because of Windows 8 but after the update to 8.1, I love it. Although it was a refurbished pc, I couldn't tell. If someone gave it to me as a gift I would have never known. Let's not mention the shipping. It was quicker than expected. If you've been watching this desktop quit putting it off and get it. You wouldn't be disappointed.
Just what I needed!! It is a good value for money, very easy to set up and fun to use.
So far, this HP Pavilion 23 is a great looking computer with the latest OS. I'm still getting used to the 8.1 OS but I'll wait for a while before I decide whether to recommend a refurbished buy until I see if there are any problems. So far, it's a great buy. I'd rate it 5 stars if I were certain of the reliability.
monitor looked like it was scratched with sandpaper around frame , smudges and smears on monitor glass and mouse, keyboard. not what WAL MART states in their re-furb condition
other than that, the operations of it works . had 2 days , debating whether to fix scratches or return.
will see how operation of unit continues.
Definitely a GREAT product for the money!!
We got this for my daughter, she was thrilled. Love the size and all in one. Graphics are excellent for gaming or watching videos.
