Pros Omni 27 is quite formidable looking.
Cons The 27 inch display is fatiguing after 15 minutes of looking!
Fine resolution is not up to par with other big time competitors.
Some parts at the back panel are hot to touch. Is this normal?
Summary Too expensive for Omni 27 average performance!
Wireless connectivity is lame and not reliable on every start ups. Better get a wired mouse and wired keyboard in case of failures like us if you cannot afford to waste time fixing it from the bottom rear panel! Obviously a design flaw.
HP is quite good before sales but very very very slow after when needing help to effect warranty to their advantage.
Just hope HP understand proper English (don't misunderstand you like they did to us) and pray some real help comes along when you need it!
Pros HP did a good job in making this all in one and so useful for Photoshop enthusiasts etc.
Cons Does not seem as fast as implicated by its specs! Picture does not look sharp!
Summary Unfortunately Apple 27 inch is obviously a better choice for professionals! I tried a lot of tests and there is no way this HP can topple Apple or come close at this stage.
Better to wait for HP to lower their price on this model or better still, wait until Windows 8 become its operating system.
Pros Essentially this PC is really nice looking and simple for the average man who likes to web browse a lot. Media applications fared average.
Cons Fonts is really embarrassing! What happened to sharp picture clarity HP ?
Summary I use a lot of Ms Office and this big 27 inch looked terrible on all fonts no matter what resolution was applied.
Pros Looks big for what it is and look so potential for photoshop, big games, etc
Cons let downs like poor HP understanding when repairs are needed or when problems happened. Miscommunication is a norm for HP servicing nowadays. A lot of time wasted and procrastinated in this respect.
Summary I was expecting more from HP Omni 27 but it appears that Mac 27 inch have lots more going for it despite having a slightly pricier price tag. Most adobe photoshop studios will not consider this offering from HP.
Pros Big screen; setup, wireless keyboard, and value for price.
Cons Wireless mouse eats batteries but synched keyboard has none (wonder how they do that). No restore disk (all mfg. now) so called HP which as everyone knows is challenging - fortunately go through Costco help to get connected so issue resolved.
Summary HP Omni 27 Quad Series All-in-One Desktop Intel® Core™ i5-2400S 2.5GhzReplaced a Dell XPS One all in one with this unit bought at Costco for $1,062 with tax (and extra year warranty). Only time I called help was to make .
