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

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product nice fast easy to use September 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by These products are better than expected. Great computer with Windows 7. Good performance features worked right out of the box. Easy to transfer old data to new computer. I like the HP version of support. I'd recommend this computer to everyone. September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This computer is great! This computer is great. It has easy to use features, and runs so quiet I have to check to see if it's on. I wish I had moved up to this a long time ago. The monitor and adaptor cord works very well with the computer. Installation was a breeze and I'm over 70. September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great computer I recently bought this desktop after years of using a laptop and now my eyes aren't what they used to be I needed something with bigger print. I found it easy to install and my questions were well answered by HP technicians. Would recommend it based on my experience. September 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Be careful and double-check! This seems like a good computer. It's been a while since we've had a computer from HP. We chose this model because we wanted Windows 7, and we especially liked the software bundled with it. After two days of using it, we noticed that several of the programs that were supposed to be included were not. Since this review will not be posted if I discuss my attempts to get this rectified in the manner that would have been simplest for me, I will not go into that. The computer itself is working well. It was very easy to set up and start using. I'd give 5 stars at this point, except for the issue of the missing software. If you decide to purchase this otherwise-fine computer, I'd suggest that one of the first things you do is to make sure that all of the software that you care about has actually been installed.
