E223385 - HP 15.6" Laptop AMD A8 Quad Core 8GB RAM 750GB HD
I bought this to use as my primary laptop for live gigs at mobile DJ events. Once I had it set up and configured the way I wanted it, it has not let me down! Hard drive is solid and there have been no gliches during a performance. The unit runs pretty cool, I have not had a need for an auxiliary fan like my old Lenovo machine. All in all, I'm very pleased.
Hard drive failure
Unfortunately I am one of the customers who received this and had immediate hard drive failure. I had seen reviews previously where customers bought an HP laptop and had immediate hard drive failure. So I am shocked that QVC is not aware this is happening. I am a computer professional and I needed this laptop right away and now I am handiicapped by not having one right now. I have to send it back, wait for another one and hope that one will not fail. I am not feeling confident right now that this was a good buy. There is no reason to have immediate hard drive failure except for very poor manufacturing quality and lack of QA.
I love it so much the internet speed is perfect. Now I can invest in Blue Ray DVDs. Its perfect for my online classes for my business degree. I couldn't have asked for a better computer. The only down side is that I wish it was bluetooth compatible. The graphics on the games are wonderful I could sit and play bejeweled 3 all day and it wouldn't lag or freeze.
I ordered this notebook from qvc about a month ago. It arrived on time, and I had no problems setting it up out of the box. I love the look and feel of this notebook! The new keyboard design is a big plus, and the screen resolution is pretty good. The only issue I had with this notebook was the hp truevision web cam. The picture quality was not what I was expecting, and I had to play with the setting to get a clear picture. I also would have liked it if this notebook came with bluetooth. The speed is really good, and the hard drive size is amazing. It doesn't weight a ton and doesn't heat up when sitting on your lap or flat surfaces. The battery life for me is about five hours on a full charge, but I use the top performance settings. Overall this is a good notebook, and the monthly payment option is great. Another good HP product.
