Customer ratings and reviews for HP Pavilion 500-281 Desktop PC with Windows 7

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bargain Fast, quiet, cool running, and inexpensive. Windows 7...get it while you still can! July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great PC I Order this computer on Sunday and received on Wednesday thanks HP I love windows 7 and this pc performs great. July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great for my intended use Bought this primarily to run a Phoenix RC flight simulator. I have it paired with a Vizio 55" tv It is an excellent combination. The results are better than expected Set up was simple and straight forward. It did take some time to download and install all the windows 7 updates. I added windows mail and windows essentials and uninstalled all unnecessary programs I also have an IPad, MacBook Air and an hp envy touch screen. Each has its pluses and minuses. All get about equal use June 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by I think we have a lemon The keyboard and mouse aren't working the way they're supposed to. A couple of days ago my wife got a message at boot up that there was a discrepency in her hard drive and the PC was going to do a scan. This is a brand new PC. I'm really not interested in hard drive failures. June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love HP and Windows 7 So glad HP is sending out Windows 7 ...It's better than ever and so much more user friendly than Windows 8.1 My HP Pavillion 500-281 works smoothly and HP is great with Sales and Support June 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far so good! Just set it up this weekend and all seems well. Sofar so good! June 9, 2014
