HP 620 Digital Camera

 

"The HP 620 digital camera features a 2.1 MP total resolution and 12x total zoom - 3x optical and 4x digital zoom. Along with taking video clips of up to 30 seconds long, you can also choose the quality of the pictures taken by three levels."

3 picture quality settings., Flash., Auto-Focus., LED Display., Up to 12 x Zoom.

AC adapter not included.

I was pleasantly surprised that the 620 took such good quality pictures for a 2.1 mega pixel camera. And anyone on a budget should find this camera a good value

some flaws

 

will not buy another HP.

fast

extremely uncomfortable ergonomic design flaw. the part of the laptop where your wrists rest has a 90 degree angle at the edge, could be alleviated with a wrist pad. Also, when wrists are resting below the keyboard area on the laptop, the cursor will...

Outstanding!

 

My wife got this laptop in May of 2011 and has been happy with it. Has everything that she needs. This seems to be a popular laptop. Highly recommend this HP laptop. Hp has a higher reputation than the laptop manufacturers.

Outstanding laptop from HP

No flaws in this laptop

This is my second laptop and I couldnt be more pleased with it! I havent had it very long but if it continues to perform the way it has so far, I am going to enjoy it for quite a while....

Super easy to set up and use! Got connected to my wireless router within minutes. Large keys make it easy to type. Very quiet and navigates the internet quickly. Great laptop for personal home use

None at this time

Consumer review by:

just got it

 

i like the non glare screen, helps a lot when i'm in a lighted room. the non spill key board is a huge plus ; the touch area is not too sensitive, and it works well so far. no finger marks either

i'm not fond of the dust attracting key board boarder, and it's good that it is very light, but it is most made of plastic, which feels very weak vulnerable

Wrong OS Loaded

 

Checking with Newegg on this issue. They are very helpful and will do what they can.

Nice laptop, reasonabally priced. Decent performance. Would give this item a better review if it had the correct os. HP may have put the wrong disk drive in accidentally

Lots of junk preloaded. Suppossed to be Windows7 Premium 64-bit. Says so on Sticker, but comes up as Windows 7 32-bit, and labels recovery disk as such. Does not like 64-bit applications
