Rated 5 out of 5Â by soggy great right out of the box
I bought the 25 inch HP monitor along with the above computer. I upgraded most choices given.
max RAM , better processor, ect. I did stay with Windows 7 as this is compatible with my computers at work. My new HP is replacing my HP pavilion desktop with Vista which is 9 years old.
So far, I'm happy with the performance right out of the box. works exactly as expected. rapid start up , web surfing, downloading, steaming video all working as expected.
The 25 in screen has excellent resolution. Happy with the purchase so far.
Computer and screen arrived on time and in good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pakorro great PC
This pc is very powerful. I use it for video edition and production as well as music composition and audio recording and edition. This pc gives me all the power I need without a single problem, it is fast, reliable and has a ton of storage room. All the usb and media card ports are very conveniently located everywhere so if you need a lot of usb ports, this pc has enough!

Everythig works fine except for BEATS AUDIO! I HATE IT!! You can't turn the freakin' thing off! I'm going to junk the board and drop in an old one from a HP I had 10 years ago that works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RonH45 Fastest Computer I have ever purchased!
Wow, where do I begin! I was searching for a new computer from HP for some time, just could not find one to suit. The HP Envy 700 - 215xt was perfect to start, with some additions to speed it up.
I added the Intel core I7-4790 processor, 16GB mSATA SSD cache and the 4GB Nvidia GeForce GT640 graphics card, these items did the trick, especially the SSD on start up, up and running in about 45 seconds. the graphics card allows faster game play on a couple of games I have loaded, what a difference.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by catnip27 So far so good
I am an average user with 18 plus years on computers. I have had my new computer for about a month. The speed is excellent and the quietness is unbelievable. The only problem I have had so far is that the front panel sliding dust door vibrates and makes a vibrating buzzing sound; similar to hair clippers. As my tower is right near me on my desk, this can be quite a pain. I believe it is because the door does not go all the way up and stay there. When I put the door up it slides back down about a 1/16 to 1/8 inch. The door, I think, is a little too heavy for just a door on a track design, so it slips a little. It needs a locking system to keep it up in place better. I can only imagine after time and use it may get worse. It does not buzz all the time but it will start sooner or later. I also do not have any idea what may start the vibration. When it does start vibrating it will not stop unless you hold the door all the way up or put it completely down. Holding the door up with one hand and typing etc does not work to well (tried tape it didn't work). I now open the door all the way to the bottom & leaving it open when it begins to vibrate, the vibration will stop. The point is that I should not have to do that on a nearly a grand computer and the dust door is useless if I have to leave it open. I do not know if anyone else has had this problem or if I am the only one that has a gremlin with a vibrator in my computer. I will say that other than the gremlin, the quietness of this computer will make you believe your tower is in another room.
