I have been very happy with this computer. However, my hard drive died from a known issue with Seagate drives. There was nothing in any of my specs that told me I had a Seagate drive or I could have avoided the problem. Now I have asked HP to repair...

HP Pavilion Elite m9080n

The HP M9040N Elite appears to have the right mix of parts upon first inspection of the technical specifications, but the overall product is a disappointment at the performance level. I have a year old Dell Inspiron 530 Core2Quad that can run circles...

If you have a bundle of cash and are looking for a good looking device to add to your home theatre or a PC that can handle most media related tasks, then the Maestro is for you. If you are looking for a gaming PC, you may want to look elsewhere.

I was a long-time fan of HP because they provided excellent warranty service and telephone tech support. Before you buy from them be aware this has changed. The quality of tech support has declined dramatically. Calls now automatically go to...

I purchased this computer 14 months ago. I was pleased with the quality until about two months ago when it started freezing at random. Spoke with tech support and ran all the virus scans and even restored it to factory state, but the problem remains....

Though lacking the memory and heightened performance capabilities of its similarly-named descendant, the HP Pavilion Media Center TV M7640N packs an incredible punch. Whether you are an avid gamer, or simply want an edge in viewing DVDs and other...

The fax function works fine, if you don't mind lines running through the fax. The printer is terrible. The alignment is off and nothing I have tried will fix it. I admit I purchased this 4 in 1 for the price and I got just what I paid for. I work...

Z-Line Vitoria 40 inch W TV Stand

I shopped long and hard trying to find a stand that would hold my large center speaker, and 55" Samsung and still was stylish. This is one of two that I found and was over $100 cheaper!

Acer Aspire REVOview RV-100

Quite pricey compared to similar products but worth it. Play back quality is superb, easy to set up(even wireless). Menu's are clear and straight forward and plays every format that I can think of.
