"Piece of junk!"on by Naiscoot69
Pros Lots of features & storage.
Cons Not dependable. Motherboard failed possibly due to overheating.
Summary Replaced motherboard at a cost of over $150 and now have to buy restore discs at $50 more as the restore discs I made do not work & the restore partition on the hard drive has vanished. Also Windows Vista is garbage.
"very very poor"on by lydiadyanne
Pros nothing i can think of.
Cons The design traps heat inside and causes unit to overheat.
Summary We purchased two of the slimlines a year ago. We have had contact with customer service at least 6 different times. Both computers overheat and shut down without notice. One of the computers in particular will not stay on for anymore than 5 min. We have given up using it entirely. Customer service would/will not correct our overheating issues when the computers were under warranty. After telling us they have not had any overheating issues with this particular line of computers, they direct us to a hp webpage specifically addressing overheating issues. When we google our hp pavilion, page after page comes up of overheating issues identical to ours. Our 2 slimines are now 20 days out of warranty and hp wants us to pay $200-300 to extend warr. and repair. We thought we were being punked after speaking with a customer service rep and we're told these computers were not designed to stay on all day. What were we thinking? We now tell everyone we know, not to buy hewlett packard products,they do not honor the warranty. We purchased one of the computers as a gift for our mother, we are now looking at buying another to replace this new computer. Crazy and frustrating , money doesn't grow on trees. HP is pure disappointment all the way around. We hope this posts to get the word out. There ought to be a lemon law.
Pros down to $500 new, 4GB RAM, 500MB HD, 64-bit OS, Small Size, 15-1 card reader built in, DVD+-RW with LIGHTSCRIBE, Quiet (VERY Quiet)
Cons I play heavy games, so i wanted to upgrade the graphics. she worked well before, but for $48 bucks down the line, why not?
Search for: sparkle 512mb nvidia geforce 8400gs low profile
it cost $48 on 10/14 (no need to upgrade power supply)
Summary This is a power house! All of the important PC elements. I use this for rendering 3D graphics and playing games, couldn't be happier. If you are hung up on HDMI, get the graphics card mentioned above and get a dvi to hdmi converter for $8 this machine has digital audio out! Realistically save $200 if you DIY.
Pros It's small, quiet, and quick!
Cons It has an okay graphics card for the games I play but its pretty laggy unless you use the crappiest settings for games.
Summary great for regular everyday use except for playing games well.
