"HP DV7-6B63 crashed six months from purchase."2.0 starson by xmasmom
Pros: Fast when it was working!
Cons: Please see summary below
Summary: I purchased an HP pavilion DV7-6B63 in December and it crashed in June. Within weeks of having it, the front edge, a thin plastic thread the diameter of a straight pin over each front speaker, began cracking and finally broke off completely. When I took it back to Staples where it was purchased, they sent it to HP who said that the computer had been damaged along the front edge and they weren't sure they could do anything about it. The cracking along the front edge is a design flaw on their part. A thin thread of plastic resting on nothing is going to break just from normal usage as one's arms rest along that edge while typing. I found photos online of the same computer where the owner had taken photos of the cracks that first appeared and then the pieces falling off over the speakers.
I has been two weeks and Staples is still getting the run around from HP. I was disappointed that the front edge broke on this expensive computer, but had decided to ignore it. Now that the hard drive has crashed, I really think they should repair the front edge and replace the hard drive. Meanwhile, I am without my computer.
Have not had much luck with HP in the past and won't buy an HP product again.
