E222971 - HP 17.3" Laptop w/ AMD A8 Quad Core 8GB RAM 750GB HD
Power, Speed, --Perfection
This computer is absolutely amazing. The speed that it has makes surfing the web so much fun. The screen is bright and clear. The fingerprint recognition is fantastic. No more typing in password after password, just swipe you finger over the sensor and you are signed in to the site. My husband and I saw the presentation and jumped on buying this computer. While in the "processing" phase (before shipping occurs) we went to several electronic stores and compared computers and pricing. NO one came close to the price offered at QVC. We both feel we made a great decison buying this computer.
I have had my hp for 6 mos. now and I love it!!!! I really enjoy the speed of the notebook when surfing the web as much as I do. I always have so many different pages up at once and it very seldom slows down. The dvd/cd rom is awesome as well. I have burned a few cd's and dvd's to perfection. The picture quality of the blueray player is superb. The beats audio is an excellent addition to quality listening experience.
The only problem that I've had with it crashing is when using internet explorer 9. The problem was IE not the computer. runs with mozilla firefox just fine.
I wouldn't trade my notebook for anything.
The HP I purchased last year was a dual core and is faster than this quad core. Dual core had a better designed key board which conformed to your fingers. With the new quad core I have to tap several times before an application opens. Space Bar does not function properly.
I have worked on and used computers for years, and in the past love HP computers. I have had this computer for about a month and this particular model leaves a lot to be desired. The screen freezes and the Simple Pass continually crashes. It is also very slow. I am not happy at all with this computer . I do not recommend anyone purchasing it and I am sending it back .
I have had my hp dv7-7115nr for two weeks now and it is great. I have a year and half old Gateway w/4 gb memory and a dual core, this hp flies compared to it. like it runs on Nitro methane, finger print reader works well, very nice looking and love all the new cool hp features, yes the Beats Audio is not as good as external speakers, but people it is a laptop not a Home system it works 100 times better than any laptop i have owned or heard. Just wish i would have waited a couple weeks because i just saw it on TV for 70 bucks less than i paid, which was still 100 bucks cheaper than it is now.
not worth the money
Nice keyboard, but very slow and touch pad freezes up so mouse does not move. Does not have any useful software for the price.
WORST Customer Service/Warranty EVER!!!!!
DO NOT buy an HP product. They have the absolute WORST customer service and warranty possible. My kids each got computers as Xmas gifts last year. One got a Dell, the other got an HP. The Dell was sent for service and was very quickly repaired and sent back at no charge to me. The HP was sent for service and I was contacted (after they had it for TWO WEEKS!!!) that the problem was from a drop and/or spill and isn't covered under warranty. That is just plain....can't say here. They wanted nearly $400 to repair it. Well, quite frankly, I can get it repaired locally for probably much cheaper. Plus, everyone that you email and talk to at HP can barely speak english - if you can understand their accent. It's ridiculous!!! Before this, I would have recommended HP over Dell because I liked that computer better....NO MORE. I will NEVER buy another HP product again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HP is the best - Products and Customer Service
Really great PC - would expect nothing less from HP. Easy to set up. I was up and running in no time. With the exception of one really bad decision to buy another brand, I have purchased HP products exclusively for at least the last 20 years for both personal and business use. As a department head, purchased hundreds of desktops, laptops and commercial grade printers for staff. Never disappointed and if a problem or issue arises, HP always stands behind their products - their customer service and quick resolution can't be beat. As noted on the Q website, this laptop, along with other HP products, is eligible for Windows 8 upgrade at a reduced price and HP is currently running a promotion that will refund you the cost of this upgrade. In the end, the upgrade will cost you nothing. Thanks Q and HP!
I was a little cautious about getting this laptop. It arrived at my home yesterday evening. The setup was easy. I thought that the sd card reader was not on the laptop, but the reader is actually in the front on the left side. I like the fact that I can upgrade the memory to 16GB and also upgrade the processor as well, which I will do in a couple of weeks. Blu-Ray player was a definite must for me. A lot of bloatware that I removed to free up the harddrive and memory. The price of this HP laptop was very affordable, and fit my budget. The black finish was a plus very stylish. Have not recieved the additional software yet, should arrive today, but looking forward installing the McAfee antivirus software. 4 years of security is excellent and saves me money in the long run. Definitely would recommend this laptop.
Very disappointed with this laptop. Thought I was getting a great deal on what seemed to be a high quality computer.
The keyboard is horrible. I had a Dell laptop before this, and this keyboard seems cheap and I have to press really hard on all the keys to get them to work, especially the space bar.
The fingerprint password feature seemed cool at first but stopped working about 2 weeks into having the computer.
I'm returning this and trying another Dell.
Here goes: 1) Back panel of the laptop has come off twice, just lifted it up off the counter and it fell of. I am NOT hard on my laptops at all, in fact I usually treat them very gingerly. 2) Had the blue screen already, windows crashed had to restart... in the middle of a work project no less. 3) Screen has gone black and then started flashing. This lasted for about 20 seconds before the screen came back on and everything looked normal. 4) It freezes constantly!! You cannot have more than a couple of programs open at one time, or you get the freeze. 5) I swear it feels like I'm back on dial-up sometimes when trying to connect to the internet. I have another HP powerhouse laptop and it is screaming fast. I bought this one to replace a work laptop, and I'm extremely disappointed. Unfortunately, this is going back to QVC. This will be my first return EVER in the 12+ years I've been ordering from QVC. Sorry!
I love this laptop had it for a months. Works great, sounds great..It's nice and big.. Was excited to get it .. I think this a the good Hp laptop.. Recommend to people who is looking for something new. Love the finger print to assces the laptop with out putting a password...
