    Unexpectedly Unsatisfactory


    Having had good experiences with many HP products in the past I expected a typical good product with this one so I went out n bought two of them and was soon disappointed. With the good specs on the unit I expected a much better PC for my money. But after almost 2 months I have to say this computer isn't anywhere near what I expected. My old, less-powerful HP STILL run rings around this unit. Pros: Small size and good-looking design. Almost silent operation. In stead of a fan-driven power supply, HP opted for an external PS like their printers. Plenty of inputs and the ability to install a 2nd monitor.. Cons: Unbelievably show despite a decent processor and 8g of RAM. I have almost no additional software installed and it's used mainly for Email and Web browsing (Thunderbird and Firefox), yet, even with a solid, fast Internet connection the thing makes me wait before a sentence I type in to display, which was the very reason I wanted a new PC. No ability to speed it up. I have disabled some of Win10's most attractive screen effects, installed a flash drive for "ready boost", increased the disc cache and other speed-increasing methods and I STILL can't get the thing to work any faster despite my own experience nd HPs own website.. My Wife's (identical) machine is the same way and all she uses it for is looking at photos, Web and Email. In summation, this is essentially a piece of junk (a first for any HP product I have ever owned) and wouldn't be a bargain if they sold it for $50. This serious;y blunts my desire to own any HP product in the future.

    Excellent budget desktop

    I bought one of these for my father and one for a customer looking to have a new desktop bought and set up. In both cases the recipients are very happy with them. As with any new machine, you either need to uninstall nearly everything or do a clean Windows install before using, but this is great budget performance at a reasonably good price. The vast majority of normal computer users don't need more than what this machine offers up, plus it's small and light. The usual small-form-factor caveats apply, of course: you can't upgrade several things (notably the CPU) and you're not adding any PCIe cards, extra hard drives, or easily upgrading the optical drive. It's basically a laptop core in a desktop case. Hard drive and RAM can still be upgraded later if needed. You won't be doing much video editing, but for office programs and internet and basic image editing work it's a gem. If you are OK with those limitations, this is a great machine.

    Absolutely horrible and horrible customer service.

    I’ve been a loyal Best Buy customer for years. Even used to work there in college. I bought this computer for my dental office to handle simple practice management software and other basic functions (playing music from Pandora, running Netflix, etc.). Of all the computers in my office this is the newest one and it is BY FAR the slowest and is constantly giving us problems. We have two monitors hooked up and things will constantly flash back and forth between the two monitors, and because of Best Buy’s ridiculous return policy, I can’t return it or exchange it for a different computer. The only option they gave us was to send it to the manufacturer to have it serviced which we can’t do because we can’t function without having a computer in that room. Thanks for nothing.

    This computer is so sloooooooooow I want to toss it in the garbage. Took it to Geek Squad and they could not do anything and even ordered the wrong parts to upgade the RAM. The Geek Squad rep knew nothing about the product and even had to look it up on his smart phone. Come to find out Best Buy does not support RAM upgrade for this computer. I am beyond very dissatisfied with this computer. Only purchase this computer if you want the slowest computer every made. PURE JUNK

    Great computer! Works very accurately.

    My former computer was attacked and I had to choose a new one. I went to Best Buy and asked for assistance in deciding which computer to purchase. I was given very accurate and thoughtful assistance with choosing the computer - an HP Slimline Desktop. The installation of the new computer went very smoothly and I have been able to understand how to work on it very easily and completely. I have been using the new computer in my business daily for a month and I am extremely pleased with how magnificent it works and very grateful for the wonderful support Best Buy has given me.

    Sluggish computer

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I bought this PC to replace my old Windows 7 computer hoping to get better performance. Installation was very easy. However, this was the worst decision ever. This computer takes very long to boot and its performance is very bad. I have cable internet and it takes 5 to 10 seconds to open web pages. I have tried and failed going through many options to improve performance. I will very likely ditch hp and Windows after this wasting my money in this PC.

    this PC is sooooo slooooow . I have taken it back to Geek Squad twice, had it gone thru on line and it is nothing but a pile of junk!! Sorry excuse for a computer! Freezes up constantly, very, very slow. I have had the internet connection checked, working great, 50 mps speed, strong wifi signal, Best buy is going to get this back! Don't know if it's the AMD-8 processor or what. Have had 4 HP computers. with intel processor and didn't have any problems other than getting outdated.

    Serves the purpose for which it was bought

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The most irritating thing is that the USB ports in front of the tower do not recognize my phone, so to transfer files, I have to either hook up the bluetooth, or plug into the back usb ports. Frustrating. Overall the computer was a good value and suits my needs. It was easy to set up a two screen system, but sometimes the computer will be slow to respond if I change programs suddenly. Keeping a lot of windows and programs open is definitely a strain on the device.
