E222966 - HP 15.6" Laptop w/ AMD A8 Quad Core 8GB RAM 750GB HD
Not Worth It
I bought this laptop 6 months ago, and now I regret it. I'm currently trying to sell it for whatever I can get to buy a totally different laptop. I do not understand why this package is priced so high. Not worth the money.
I have problems with the volume and screen brightness staying at the level I want. Example: When in a class, I often dim the screen as low as it will go to be less distracting. However, the screen will randomly brighten- without me changing it myself! The volume is the same way. The CoolSense also tends to kick in during the worst times in lecture. The fan is loud and distracting.
Already having problems with the screen freezing. The general speed of how any function works has noticeably slowed. In only 6 months!
I thought this would be the perfect purchase- a fast, reliable machine. However, I am totally disappointed.
1st time buying HP & having nothing but headaches
I purchased this laptop late July, at first was great. But then when video chat with daughter computer would should down after several times this situation, called tech support and gues what the video card was not working. Had to send back & since I needed it quickly I ended up paying approx $15 for return express shipping. Since then, I have been having different types of issues. The tech guys (here in USA) when you can get them, because every time I called I would get someone in the Phillipines. Now when I finally thought everything was gooing great, guess what I have to send back due to the "P" key according to them is stuck and does not allow to do anything. I request to speak with a manager, which they aid would call me today, we shall see. I'm about to request they replace this one with a new one. So much problems & this computer is not cheap. After this experience, I DOUBT I WILL EVER BUY AN HP AGAIN, SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH MY INSTINCT AND PURCHASE A DELL.
I purchased this PC because I needed something dependable to work from home, big mistake! From the get go it kept freezing up and the cursor would just disappear from a line, I had to restart over and over again to get through an hours worth of work, so frustrating! The CD/DVD drive stopped working after one use. After being a satisfied HP customer for several years, I am so disappointed! The one I got was a lemon...
I love my computer
I'm not sure of why this computer got so many negative reviews. I've had my computer for over a month and I absolutely love it! I upgraded it to Windows 8 a few weeks ago and now I love it even more. I watch Netflix all the time on it and haven't experienced what everyone else has experienced (yet). I'll do another review in a few months if anything changes.
Died after five months - even with TLC! :(
Nothinbg special happened. I went to my machine and it would not start up. I tried to go back to a restore point, and nothing happened. Since no factory discs came with the machine, I could not f11 or f8 during restart to get into factory reset... I ran all of the HP diagnostics that I could, and they just kept recycling, with no issues found. I am about to call the Help line, as all drivers, etc. were missing, once I ran an upgrade disk of MS 7 Professional. BUMMER!!! I need this for work.
Died after 5 months
Bought when special value. Crashed numerous times and lost memory. Turned it on yesterday and all I got was a screen that said to set up normally or set up in repair mode. Tried both ways and got nothing but a light blue screen - let it sit for a while in case it was repairing itself nothing!!!! This should be top quality for the price but is absolutely worthless.
I really like this laptop. The screen is the right size, light weight, color is very good, sound is great!
Should have known better....
I usually only buy HP ( for my kids) for its quality and value. Never had a problem before now. This laptop came today and its being returned today. The wireless doesn't work... It was supposed to be a gift for my son. Glad i tried it before Christmas Day, that would have been awful.
QVC... you know this laptop has had major issues... why not pull it already ?
buy only intel procesor i returned twice it crashes too much
Piece of garbage
I bought this PC after having previous good experience with their computers and other products. They are defnately supporting the rumor that they are exiting the personal pc market. I have a new anchor and I don't even own a boat. I gave it 1 star the choice of no star was not available.
Didnt get to use it not even once
So i purchased my computer 2 days ago and received it yesterday after noon. When i opened it everything was fine, so i decided to bring it to school today. Now, this computer wont even turn on and all it says its that the hard disk isnt installed and that there has been a disk reading accident (something like that)...This computer is very expensive and I thought I would have received something nice, but it was a total fail. Now I have to return it and see what i am going to do.
Big Huge Disappointment
All the hype about HP and all their success is hard to believe. It's almost been one year since I've owned a very similar model to this one. I've experienced a slow-operating response. The webcam lost connection while attempting to Skype. It was working fine several months ago. Tried to find the drivers on the HP website after a tutorial directed me there. Nope...not there. Called tech support. They tried to sell me an extended warranty. After 10 minutes of a few questions and putting me on hold, the tech suggested I send it in for repair and my computer turnaround would be 1 1/2 weeks. Yikes!!! I have a business and can't be without my computer! I had a bad experience with an HP years ago, but thought I'd take a leap of faith since it sounded like a great deal. The build of this computer is weak, compared to a Toshiba I last owned. I'm going back to Toshiba. Much sturdier and tech support is extremely helpful.
