Customer ratings and reviews for HP ENVY 15z-j100 CTO Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features, Quick Machine I bought two of these, one for me and one for my wife. We run adobe photoshop in 3D, I have office, progeCAD (CAD software), budgeting software synced through dropbox, netflix. It's very responsive, the 8GB of memory and A10 processor make this a very quick machine. I've been very happy with them. September 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great computer I just received my new laptop, and I am really enjoying it. I love the look. The back lit keyboard is a new plus for me. The speed is good, and I am loving the mobility of the laptop versus my old desktop. I thought having no DVD drive would be an issue; it is for my old programs. I work around this by accessing a DVD drive on another computer through a network; for newer programs, no DVD drive is not an issue; everything is downloadable. August 30, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed I purchased this computer a year ago June 4. My daughter used for one school year and it sat in her bedroom through the summer. In Fall, when opening the computer, one of the two hinges failed. It simply broke. We called HP to find out if there was anything they could do since the one-year warranty had only expired three months prior, and they said that it would cost us $180 plus parts and shipping to get it fixed. I am disappointed because in the past I have always purchased HP. After wasting $500+ on this laptop, I am going with another brand. A new computer is on its way. August 29, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Underwhelmed to say the least. The construction of this laptop appears tight and rigid. The Beats audio system is good. I like the back lit keyboard, too. That's the good stuff. The rest I'm not happy about. I've had this for about 6 months. I use this laptop for streaming video on the internet and MS Word, for the most part. I'm not a gamer at all. When streaming video the unit gets uncomfortably overheated and the fan is on full blast. I have to raise the chassis off my lap when watching video to maximize airflow. It has been like this from day one. The mouse pad is very hard to use because it does not have have dedicated right and left mouse buttons like my old Pavilion, which this replaced. The pad itself rocks back and forth to the left and right which makes highlighting or click and drag functions frustrating. I upgraded to 12GB RAM and I have a 1TB hard drive. Browsing the internet, with Chrome, is still very slow. Ridiculously slow. It gets hung up on pages when trying to visit a new one all the time. I'm not sure what's wrong. My Pavilion ran much better with half the RAM and a 600GB hard drive. It also came with a CD/DVD ROM drive which this doesn't, but I knew this when I purchased this. Some of the keys on the keyboard have gotten gummed up or something and take extra effort for the letter to register on the screen, which means more proofreading, which means more work... All in all, I do not like this laptop and I should have gotten another Pavilion instead. It ran much cooler and was faster. Windows 8.1 is garbage. I never use the block interface and am always using the tried and true desktop interface instead. Also, opening up programs is cumbersome because you must now use a search feature off screen to "search" search for the program you want to open instead of going to the Program partition of the menu. Once you get used to that it's easy but it's another hoop to jump through... I thought computers were supposed to simplify life and work... not so with this laptop! August 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Awful First thing you should know I got this laptop as a gift from my father on his return from US after a summer semester. And I actually send him the link to this laptop to buy it. To my disappointment sometimes this machine gets jammed for no reason. No offense it has a great look. Well I was already using hp 1000 notebook for my excessive programming needs and honestly that notebook seems much better now. And seriously HP! 9 hours battery life?! It doesn't even got near 4 hours! You know for a person living in developing country, getting such a new machine feels really good. But you really disappointed me HP! August 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Good on paper I was very excited about this. When I first opened it, the vents went like crazy. Ok, maybe it needs some updates, removed some bloatware. Nop. Even with just chrome opened, the vents were going like I was running 10 games at once. The video card wasn't doing good either. Online you see this card playing Battlefield 4, my computer was lagging in the main menu at dishonored at everything low. Not to mention the vents going even worse. I returned it and asked for an exchange. If the new one isn't what it's supposed to be, I'll ask for a refund. August 2, 2014
