Rated 5 out of 5Â by David12 Awesome Case fast computer
This is my second HP I-7 computer purchase this year. The Phoenix has the coolest case featuring red lights it also comes loaded with a nice video card and lots of memory. I would recommend adding the hybrid SSD drive it make a huge difference in start up speed well worth the 50 dollar upgrade. I would buy this computer again!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Frankc1224 Terrific Gaming Machine
I finally decided to upgrade my old machine when Wolfenstein the New Order came out. It was dropping frames and hard to see. This machine is terrific! It boots quickly and runs all my games fast and clearly. The sound is also great.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Brian410 All around great experience
I purchased this product around 3 months ago. At the time I had an older HP all-in-one everyday computer. I had it for a couple years and was happy with it. I decided to change from counsel gaming to computer and thought first of HP. I found this model and called support with some questions. I was all around impressed with the customer service. As for the product, I couldnât be happier. Iâve played many new games on it with no problems. It feels like I should have paid a lot more for this product. The only thing is now, I need a newer monitor. Hence, the reason why Iâm here again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Joules1960 Fast, easy to use.
The hybrid hard drive, HDD/SSD, and Windows 8.1 make this a pleasantly quick machine. When I need to restart, I am back and running in 30 seconds, and that includes typing in my password. Setup was a snap; Windows found my WiFi and asked for the password. It automatically configured my two wireless printers, I went in to install them and they were already there, I just needed to choose the default.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JackB83 Excellent value!
This is a pre-packaged system, but came with everything I wanted - 16GB DDR3 RAM, dedicated video card (NVIDIA GeForce GT 640), Windows 8.1, Intel Core i7 processor, a/b/g/n wireless and Bluetooth, and 10 USB ports (4 USB 3.0 + 6 USB 2.0). The system worked fine right out of the box, and seems to run Windows 8.1 flawlessly. I use it mainly for work, gaming and light-to-medium duty video editing, and it handles most chores easily. The RAM can deal with running multiple memory-intensive programs without a hiccup. I've been using mine for the last week during a deadline crunch, so it's been working for 14+ hours a day, for more than 5 days, video conferencing, editing &rendering videos, graphics, copying audio files, etc., with zero issues. Two nitpicks: I'm not in love with the styling (the red LEDS can be a bit much) and the fan, while generally quiet, is still noticeable when running. Overall, though, this is a very solid desktop and an excellent buy that will suit everyone from casual users to intermediate gamers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NYarchitect Excellent workstation
This workstation is well-equipped, quiet, and fast, with good ergonomics. HP's setup process was quick and smooth, with little unnecessary software being pushed onto the user. The red LED lighting is an amusing affectation, and the overall "plastic box" aesthetic is a world away from HP's fantastic and modern laptop design, but in general this is a great machine for a design office.
