    my last computer was a dell and it lasted me 10 yrs before slowing down on me. It was hard to shop for a new one. but after much research I finally decided on this hp. I spend a lot of time on the internet, working, playing, researching, and communicating. this computer keeps up with all of my needs as far as speed and storage are concerned. I store a lot of photos and documents and so far it hasn't slowed down or shown any problems with space. it boots up super fast and is not bogged down with software. I often have 10-12 tabs open at a time switching back and forth between them all and I really feel like I blink slower than it takes to switch between them. it is quiet. and the wireless accessories are awesome.I hate wires &this thing has virtually none. I would buy this all over again and I have already suggested it to a couple of friends.

    I was not planning on buying a new computer until the hard drive died on my windows 8.1 machine. I did not want 10 since half of my programs would not run on it. And they don't. But I had no choice. Went with HP again as I have always gotten long usage out of HPs. It set up easily and I do like the pin rather than a typed password. It found my printer right away. But of course some things won't run and I did replace one but the other is not made anymore so that is history Oddly one very very old piece of software runs on it using XP SP3 compatibility. I was amazed and very happy! It has a different monitor plug than my other HP did. We had a cable here that worked so that solved that issue. All in all, it's a good computer. Very quiet, fast and does most of what I need it to do. I would recommend it.

    Never bought an open box item from Best Buy before. Was having big time issues with my old PC, and driving the Geek Squad nuts with frequent visits and calls for problems that were popping up. Was told I might consider upgrading because of the age of my old dell. They Recommended a new HP and said I should check it out in the store. It was on sale but still a little more than I wanted to pay. Wen home checked on line, found on that was open box and certified for much less than the sale price. I ordered it, it came in the original box. Took it to the store and let the Geek Squad transfer everything. They did a super job, not loosing any files or pictures. Got it home, and can't believe how much faster it is than my old one. And the Solid State is so quiet, now whir like the old Hard Drive.

    Best purchase I've made this year so far. I am not an expert in computer at all. When I want to buy a desktop I gotta do lots of research to have a generally idea of what is what =]] So for those that are amateur like me, this HP desktop has a SSD that simply makes things you do faster, I am able to turn the computer on in less than 30 seconds as well as turn it off in about 10 seconds. My computer at work took literally 4-5 minutes to turn on so this is super impressive to me. The wireless keyboard and wireless mouse are also a plus to this purchase. Although I did not know how to put battery in the mouse, I finally saw the instruction printed inside the box. Another plus is that it is light weight. Although the size is not too small, I can definitely tolerate that.

    Excellent Desktop for 4K Video Editing

    This replaced a older Core i3 that was a dog when it came to video editing. I wiped the machine of all unnecessary bloat ware and loaded up my Adobe suite and this thing blazes through rendering 4K video. No lag and perfect, smooth 4K playback. I load the files to be edited to the 128GB SDD then render/save to the 1TB HDD. I will be adding a separate video card (Radeon RX 550) to free up some RAM usage. The only issue I had was the keyboard/mouse lagged but this was due to the minimal range to the USB receiver. I had a USB extension cable and moved the receiver closer to the keyboard/mouse and the lag went away. Additionally the supplied keyboard is very small and hard to use. I will be replacing this with another wireless set.

    Sturdy Work Computer

    I bought this computer for work purposes. The computer I was going to be issued was like 10 years old! Got this on sale and hook up was a breeze. Most of our work files are word and excel documents, plus email. There are some programs that needed to be installed. Computer has been running 10hrs a day for the past week and have had absolutely no issues. It does take up some space, but with the desk setup I have, that is not an issue. I do still prefer the all-in-ones for home/personal use.

    For years, we only bought All-in-one computers. They just made sense. However, after our Asus had some minor problems and we tried to go with some others and had no luck, we decided to give a tower a try. We got so much more for our money by going with a tower computer. This computer has handled every game that we’ve tried on it. It’s super fast and reliable. I do miss having everything I need in one device. Instead, with this we have to buy the speakers, mic, web cam, and everything else separate. But that’s totally ok. Well worth it!! I highly recommend going with a tower computer such as this HP over an All-in-one.

    Originally I purchased a Dell but it was lacking some peripheral capabilities plus I was scammed by an alleged Microsoft office support person. In working with Best Buy management, they were phenomenal in allowing my to trade the new corrupted Dell box in for this HP box. I have used HP systems in the past and have found them reliable. The solid state drive is fast, boot time is quick, and I like the various USB, SD card, and Bluetooth support. Best Buy was excellent to work with in setting up this system too. It came with wireless keyboard and mouse. I was pleased with system purchase.

    Best upgrade into new wireless HP computer has helped me better navigate the internet, make family videos, faster movie downloads and multi-task between different applications. It's practically silent, doesn't take up much space, keyboard is wireless, mouse is wireless and the thing of all it is Wi-Fi ready. Happy to have a computer that fulfills many technology based necessities.

    We needed a new computer because ours was 7 years old and the power supply was starting to go out. This is a much smaller unit than our previous one, but it is much faster and has serveral new features. I'm still getting used to Windows 10 and its components, but my son is computer literate and he can help out us older folks. Finding apps and programs is easy using either Kortana or the start menu. The storage capacity is just right for us and my son's many computer games. So far, this is a pretty nice machine with fast startup and shut down times.

    i thought that nothing could replace my former PC (which died after over 7 years of constant use) but i am actually thrilled with this new HP pc ! It was so easy to set up, a 5 year old could do it. And, there are not a lot of garbage advertisements and unwanted files programmed into it. Just a few quality things like Office 360 that one can look at on your own without any annoying pop-ups. Thank you for this beautiful PC ! *Lots of bang for the buck too.*

    Great PC for everyday use

    Very very happy with this PC so far. Lightning quick, and very quite. I've been messing around with it with heavy usage and it still doesn't stutter. Plays all my 2.7K videos taken with my Galaxy S8+ without hesitation or lag. Transferred all my files over from my Galaxy SSD T5 and was impressed on how quick it copies everything via the USB Type-C port. I dont play and games and dont plan to, so I cannot provide feedback regarding that. Overall, this PC is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks,

    I picked up this system in the open box section after someone had returned it for some unknown reason so I got a great deal on the system. Overall, I'm very pleased. The computer is very quick with the benefit of Windows running on the SSD and a 1TB storage drive. I have not had any issues and would recommend to anyone looking for a mid-range system that isn't appropriate for gaming but is a great business or home use system.

    Bought this machine to replace an HP running Windows 7 since 2003. My first "store bought" desktop was a Packard Bell in about 1995. Have always had great running computers that lasted years beginning with Win 3.0. This new machine has a Solid State Hard Drive, plenty of memory, and boots and restarts really quickly. Use is primarily generic Word Processing, Spreadsheet, Email and Personal finance. Works Great at a great price !!!!!

    I've been a loyal HP customer for years now. This desktop is great. Really love the solid state drive - windows and other programs open instantaneously now. One word of caution - you need to change the default save places for pictures, music, etc.. Otherwise it will try to save everything on the solid state drive and ignore the hard drive. I found directions on how to do this on a forum.

    I am very pleased with this computer. After dealing with an older computer which took 4-5 minutes to boot up, this is a treat. From sleep mode, it will be get to the log in screen in a few seconds. A few seconds later and you are at your desktop. I do not use it for gaming or video editing, so I cannot opine on how good it is for uses like that. But for the internet and Office type uses, it is terrific.

    Recently purchased and am in process of learning its capabilities. It is meeting all expectations. I wanted to larger memory and ssd drive to improve performance. I upgraded from an older model laptop. The speed increase was enormous. What I found was how user friendly this system performs. I originally thought price was my motivator yet I have been more than satisfied with the system.

    This is a great running computer. I have had no issues with it, it replaced an old Gateway computer. I loved the easy set up, all my other items worked fine with it. I love the wireless keyboard and mouse, so much less wires. The only thing I am not that crazy about is the side CD disk slot. I had a CD fall off and get stuck in the computer, I had to take the side off to retrieve.

    I got this desktop after my old laptop couldn’t handle newer software. The specs looked promising and after using it a whole semester running extensive Adobe software, it’s still running strong. For anyone in video production, this desktop is able to run Premiere Pro without any issues. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a strong desktop at a good price point.

    This computer is not heavy at all, which is good. And it is fast enough for my use. With SSD, booting Windows takes a very short time. With HD, I can stored a lot of data. I think this configuration combines the best of both worlds. I added a graphic card (also from HP) and the computer has no compatibility issue. So far I am very happy with this computer.
