"HP is just awful."on by PJB01
Pros none I could find.
Cons crashed after 18mos, making me the luckiest user of one of these pieces of junk.
Summary avoid HP
Pros It ran great when I first got it.
Cons Blue screens, rebooting, freezing. One morning I woke up and it was frozen for good. Tried a Linux live disc and it froze after ten minutes. Mobo is toast.
Summary I used to like HP products, and was considering giving them another shot after this. However, after reading all the reviews regarding them going t.u. after a similar time frame, I think I'm now solidly in the Dell camp.
Pros fast but you pay the price in about a year
Cons goes to **** in about 12 months Nvidia geforce 9100 integrigated video card over heats mother board and eventually fries it get a new video card and you won't have this problem...
Pros Was good for about a year, ran like any other machine.
Cons After a year it started to slow, did everything recommended. I am smart with computers, and I did all I could and nothing helped. Games go about 0.2 frames per second, when they should go 60 frames per second. Can't handle programs anymore.
Summary Photoshop crashes immediately (so waste of money on Photoshop CS6 AND the computer) which I need for school, etc. Do not buy this computer.
Pros was good while it lasted!
Cons not worth the money for only 1 year of use.
Summary bought this at best buy for 599 used 13 months and mother board went bad in it. so i went and bought 299 compaq using the 1 terabyte as a slave drive using the dvd drive as a spare and the memory is just sitting around collecting dust. would have never bought it had i know this was junk. my emaichines with vista was better that this hp. sad to say but it was! i guess its good for parts!!!!
