"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 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!!!!
Pros NONE. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
Cons Horrible. This thing didn't even last 1.5 years!!
Summary I had this computer for exactly 14 months and it completely crapped out. Wouldn't turn on, no power, nothing. Turns out it was the motherboard. This is completely ridiculous and unacceptable. I don't demand much from a computer, but it should be able to last for AT LEAST 4-5 years. Stay AWAY FROM HEWLETT PACKARD. I should've learned from my last mistake (another HP) that lasted for only 3.2 years. I figured tut might just be a fluke. It wasn't. This company gets worse and worse. Dell it is!!!!!!! Most of the Dell users say those last for 9-10 years.
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...
