Rated 4 out of 5Â by dawn14 So far, so good.
I really only wanted HP. This seemed fairly priced for what I got. Had other HP's that lasted pretty well and hope this one lasts me for awhile.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chazzman like everything about this computer
Highly recommend getting the quad core, so fast and more responsive than my 4 year old dual core desktop.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by tedium This computer is horrific and being sent back
I received this computer yesterday. I downloaded my internet provider's McAfee which has always worked great before. By then end of the evening. It had quarantined a Trojan. A Trojan never got into my current computer which is not top of the line and that I've had for 7 years. It said it downloaded 41 Windows Updates. I did not confirm this and I don't believe it did. Today, it said it had 63 updates. I let it add the updates and got error messages. Bad error messages like I have never seen before. I looked to see how the updates went and half of them said "Pending" with a couple that failed. Windows tried to fix it and couldn't. Error alert after error alert. One error alert said in bright red that there was a problem with the Registry. In other words, the hard drive on this computer was corrupt. Then, McAfee found two more Trojans. Then, pop ups began. From every corner of the screen, never ending popups. Then, those viral popups that start scanning your computer or tell you your computer is at risk and scams over and over. I was on the phone with technical support for 7 hours off and on. The first one was nice and she got my computer to where it was when it left the factory. Not that I had done much to it except install drivers for printer, speakers, etc. The second tech called to do a "check in" and did not care at all. He got off the phone fast. I then called a third tech who told me that it was perfectly normal to have dozens of pop ups and scam ads taking over my computer. Oh, BTW, I also tried to install Mozilla Firefox off IE and it said it was downloading and then it wasn't there! But, about 7 other things were suddenly on my desktop. All scam and rip off sites. This computer's hard drive and faulty registry overrode my ability to download Firefox, kept trying to override McAfee, except luckily McAfee caught the trojans. I know HP must be a good company or they would not be in business. But, this was over the top bad and I am exhausted.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Peg72 Delighted to be able to get it with Windows 7
But-- The machine is great, but Windows 7 needed a LOT of updating--over 100 Windows updates right out of the box . I couldn't install some new software because the drivers in Windows were either outdated or hadn't installed correctly. But once I was able to get past all the installation issues, I'm very happy with this computer.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by bardi Nice combination of features, but...
the 7-in-1 media card reader was flagged by windows as not having a compatible driver. Great to have a 4th gen Core i5 CPU, dual channel RAM performance, wireless built-in, 4 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by pictish Good value
Good, basic,every day computer. Set up was simple and transfer of files, easy. Reloading all programs is always a pain.
