this one put me off HP for good

Pros nice color
Cons video card fan problems
Recommended it? No

The spec looked nice at the time.
2 weeks after the purchase, the video card fan started to make loud noises. I looked at the hp support forums just to learn it is a very frequent problem and hp solution is to replace it with the same card with the same problematic fan.
It is not a... Read full review »


Awesome Purchase

Pros All round it's the best investment
Cons 64bit is not supported with some software
Recommended it? Yes

Here's the Deal: for the money you cannot beat this system.  The specs are perfect for practical users and somewhat advance users.  Unless you edit movies for a living and host various websites this is your work horse.  I've had it for about 30 days - use it mostly for business and creating...

Horrendous Customer Support for an Otherwise Decent Machine

Pros Great features, everything a modern PC should have, especially if you edit graphics or...
Cons No support for issues that should have been resolved before the product was released.
Recommended it? No

Being partial to Dells, I was a little apprehensive about purchasing an HP. I had my previous Dell for nearly 8 years - upgrading it when necessary - however it was time to put it out to pasture. The features on this machine were too good to pass up for the asking price, so I took the bait.

Pros Incredible deal for the money.<br>64-bit edition has changed my opinion of...
Cons One available expansion slot.<br>PS2 mouse and keyboard.
Recommended it? Yes

For the money, this system can't be beat. Good components, excellent specs, quiet, nice case with a non-slip top for my external BU drive. Built-in wireless and HDMI mean fewer cables hanging off the back. Best of all, after the rebate this is a sub-$800 box, and I couldn't pick up the parts list... Read full review »


Needs reliable support

Pros Pretty box and flashing blue lights
Cons Worst customer support I have ever encountered on any product, any where, any time.
Recommended it? No

I bought this boat anchor and haven't figured out a lot yet. Video records for 2 minutes and then it just stops recording without telling you. TV doesn't work from antenna -- only cable or VCR. Most of my home videos is says are copyrighted! HP Support hasn't got a clue as to why this is.

Strong system with a little upgrade

Pros Good Hardware for price 64 bit OS
Cons No available PCIe slots or room for a double slot graphics card
Recommended it? Yes

Out of the box this system performed well. I edit video and do a lot of work with pictures. The included memory at 6 Gigs is welcome for this kind of work. The windows default score was 5.6. The graphics card that comes with the machine is very capable for general tasks, but heavy gaming or editing... Read full review »

Pros Great power for the money
Cons A bit of bloatware
Recommended it? Yes

My wife was getting frustrated with her “old” dual core system because it was too slow for some of the modern applications. (Wow, back in the day we would be happy for two cores; we walked uphill to school both ways back in the old days).

Anyway, as I was driving a new Quad core system I... Read full review »
