Customer ratings and reviews for HP Pavilion 500-c60 Desktop PC (ENERGY STAR)

Rated 1 out of 5 by This CP broke in less than 3 months. Pros: Good While it lasted. Cons: Broke in less than 3 months. August 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product was better than I expected Since I am not all that great with computers, I thought I'd have a hard time with 8.1---boy was I wrong. I love the computer, only put 4 bars for features as am still learning what all this can do. I don't miss my XP at all now. It is great to know I have the Energy Star as I get called away from the computer a lot, and don't have to shut down and restart now; Am finding it easy to get around in the programs and all. Still learning a lot about this, but that's what holds my interest. Wish I had gotten the 8.1 sooner!!!!! June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great choice for home use I purchased this system two weeks ago and have been completely satisfied so far. The setup was relatively easy for me because I had stored all my files on a cloud so transferring was easy. Windows 8 was not as difficult as many people claim, I believe the poor reviews of the windows software are simply from people who are not computer savvy, I had no major problems. I would recommend this product as a great home computer with plenty of features and speed. May 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A solid computer This is a solid effort. I bought it to replace my 7 year-old HP PC and am considerably pleased. I was surprised that you can't add any additional interior drives, but other than that I can't fault it. It uses a 65-watt wall wart for power! But it's reasonably quick at boot-up, it multitasks well, and I have no problems editing audio or video. Even Windows 8.1 isn't that bad and if you still like Win7, you can configure 8.1 so it acts almost exactly like it Win7 (even the Start button). A good purchase and I recommend it. May 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Computer has really great features This computer would be really exceptional if you have real high speed internet to enjoy all it offers. At times my computer boots up slowly and my internet can not keep up at times. Over all this this a good computer and I would recommend it to others. May 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love our new computer Thought it would be hard to transition from our 9 yr old computer to our new HP with Windows 8.1, but it has been a delight for my wife and me. Every process is so much easier. If we're not sure how to do something, we just type in the question, and within minutes,we're doing it ! May 2, 2014
