Rethinking HP


No help from its creator, HP. I am now seeking a replacement for this HP monster and avoid HP PC's at all cost.

On paper, it sounded great when I purchased it

I have owned it for 2 agonizing years, spent hours with HP support, weeks "combined time" resetting factory default and reinstalling software. Endless time backing up my precious data. Now, worst than slow, I believe it kicked the bucket

If it worked, it'd be great. Sadly, it does not.


While I would love this computer to death if it didn't crash all the time, I would never recommend it. When we first got it, we had to trade it in three times because the first ones didn't work at all. When we finally got it working, it only lasted a...

Good specs, and on the days that it's not crashing insanely, it works with no problems

Glitchy, crashy, everything you can think of. Right now it's to the point where it crashes five minutes after you turn it on. We've asked many people to fix it, and they all tried and failed. I am ashamed to own this computer

Horrible computer does not work always iin for repairs


Heats up, freezes up, black screen, white screen -- Horrible Horrible computer. Do not waste your $1100.00 of dollars. No functionality whatsoever. How can one determine the function of a computer that does not work or has never worked. And HP refuses...

There is not a pro comment

do not waste your money. No customer service with HP. Lack of intergrity from HP, will not back the product or warranty

Do not buy it!!!


Customer service was not helpfull at all. Buying this computer is a sure ticket for insanity!

Should be great based on the specifications

But does not work. Every few days slows down until you can not do absolutely anything except reset factory setting from DVD. Then it works great... for a few days, until it slows down again

Ridiculously flawed product


This product should never been allowed onto the market. I wouldn't be surprised if a class-action wasn't mounted.

Theoretically a decent machine

It's been problematic since day one. See here (one of many, many threads) for list of known issues:

Does what its supposed to do!


For the price ($620 at I couldn't find a better computer. It has done everything I asked it to. It does heat up and the wires/components are definitely packed in the case, but as long as you keep the back clear it should stay at a workable...

Great components, large HD, good video card, great processor, runs quick, integrated infrared sensor, TV tuner. Everything works smoothly

All the HP crap that is loaded on it. Heats up quickly, probably need to put in a stronger power supply

Great computer; poorly built.


Hated spending this kind of money on a system that I had to troubleshoot myself since the techs in India or whatever foreign country they are in wanted me to box it up and send it in for more thorough testing.

Speed, ease of set-up, and flawless graphics

Power supply inadequate. Needs better air flow. 3.5" drive bay for plug in drive is rendered obsolete with the size and price of external drives dropping dramatically. To have to use an HP drive at higher cost is not ideal

I've had alot of desktops & laptops this one's the best


If you do graphic design or play video games online or standerd you will be amazed by the graphics of this computer. Online games/mmo like disneys pirtes or world of warcraft look beautiful and experiences no lagg. the unit has tons of memory,...

This CPU is super fast with loads of prosessor power,tons of memory and a huge hard part is amazing graphics

None so far it runs like a champ, it did take about 20 min to get the digital cable hooked up correctly the instructins are a little vague on that

Biggest technology leap I've ever experienced


My last computer was a five year old Dell. When the fourth motherboard went about a month ago, I began my search for a replacement computer. The more I searched, the more confused I became. Cnet is biased against Home Theater PC because it doesn't...

Vista, imbedded HP software, quiet case, HDMI compatible, TV tuner, FM tuner, DVR, fast graphics card, seemless operation between all these things

The power button on the top of the case. I've accidentally shut the system down a couple times by placing my foot on it. I just have to get used to this change in location. You have to get a digital TV antenna before listening to radio

I was very disapointed with this product


I had my hopes HIGH for this product because it was the first time getting an HP and all my friends told me how great HP's were. So I bought it on sep 28th and it broke four days later on oct 1st. I could just be one of the unluckiest people on the...

the specs for this comp is pretty good but my experience with this product SUCKED

this computer broke in 4 days ; the case is packed full and over heats very quickly
