To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If there was any doubt and contrary to some reviews, it does not have back lit keyboard and it is not a touch screen. The price is the best I've seen anywhere except for a refurbished one. Uninstalled the annoying apps wanting you to do things there way. it was not all that I expected . No ethernet port .What would a small hand full of leds add to the cost , feels cheap and plasticy NOT AS ADVERTISED
This was not a cheap computer, and I expected better. It's ok, but for the price, it has fewer "bells and whistles" than my last laptop. Not sure why I was asked to rate it on "touchscreen" since it doesn't have one.
But the big problem, every time I restart it, it "can't find" my WiFi network. I have the box checked to automatcally connect. Every time, I have to run the troubleshooter and it resets the adapter. Then I get a dialog box that says "trouble with wireless adapter or access point Fixed". Yeah, it's "fixed" but only temporarily.
I'm pretty good and working with computers. I looked up the problem, and it was suggested to update the wireless adapter. When I tried that it said everything was already up to date.
I'd return this POS, but of course the return window was only one month. Am I really gonna ship this off for tech support? Ugh!
This device has been exactly what I needed. I am a former desktop gamer, and more recently a remote worker looking for something that can couple both worlds and be convenient for emails at the airport and also have the power to give me high framerates for casual gaming. -The camera is excellent for video calls. -The battery life is alright (you get 2 hours high performance, 4 hours battery saver while actively using). -Sleek design: it looks like a mac, sturdy aluminum construction. -Great workstation, having had macbook pro's in the past, this performs and feels like a $1600 mac.
The device was ok for about 3 months. My only complaint was the lack of a backlit keyboard combined with the light colored keyboard that make the keys impossible to see in certain light conditions. However, after 3 months the network adapter stated failing and I've been going round and round with HP support. It is clearly a hardware failure, but they have made me do a factory reset which is a huge hassle and didn't fix it. After a factory reset that doesn't fix it you would think that the problem is clearly hardware, but they are making me work with another team to continue to try to diagnose it as software.
As soon as my Amazon return window had closed, the laptop quit connecting to the internet. I think it had something to do with the trial version of VPN software that was installed. As soon as the trial period was over, which corresponded with my toreturn window, I had to reset my network adapter every time I tried to get online. This continued until my wifi network adapter somehow disappeared. It wouldn't show up under device manager and I was unable to connect to the internet unless I wanted to use an Ethernet cable, which I did not. I tried every troubleshooter available to no avail. Then yesterday, for some unknown reason, it started working again. So far, I've been able to connect without resetting the adapter, I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that it somehow resolved itself. I should not have had an issue with a computer that is brand new and cost almost 1000 dollars. I'll update this review if the problem shows up again. I'm also curious if anyone else has had this problem.
HP Pavilion sets the standard for attractiveness, reliability & support. Came out of the box with Windows 11 already loaded, up & running. Compact, sleek & solid white metal case - looks & feels good to the touch. Great little computer - powerful, fast & fun to use! ***** 5 Stars!
I like the speed, and quick response time. Windows 11 is a new game to me, but i'm getting it somewhat figured out. I have had an issue getting the speaker selected to default to stay as default. I've worked with HP to get this resolved, but it's still a problem. Not sure if it's a Windows 11 problem or HP problem. I have less than good vision , and the keyboard is not lighted. The light contrast of the key's for me is difficult to see. I currently use a Logitech keyboard and wireless mouse along with a 28" monitor. This combo works well for me. Overall I like the Computer and recommend it.
Beyond me why silver-colored keys with faint characters imprinted on the keys was used... I also make use of the smaller function keys at top of keyboard and had to add an extra light to the desk and bend over more so I can tell which is which... just a needless nuisance of a poor design choice vs other HP's I've had with black keys and function keys which were larger.
