I had trouble with the Envy almost immediately. Long story short, would not reboot after a shutdown/power off. Endless loop of repairs and restores to earlier state. Tech support was great, said to send it back and they would replace it. And they did. Second unit had same problem. Everything was fine unless you shut it down. It would restart perfectly, just could not come back from shutdown. Tech support was great. We restored from D Recovery Partition. Same problem. They sent me factory recovery disks and I re-installed again. So far, everything seems to be working. My last several computers have been Compaq/HP and I have been extremely satisfied. This last experience was pretty agonizing. Tech support was great all the way through, but the factory software installation on two machines was clearly botched.

From the moment I turned this on, it became infected with a virus. What was going on with the free 30 day virus protection. I had to call my internet provider tech service to get the virus removed before I could use the computer. I had wasted several hours before I called them trying to figure out what was wrong with a brand new product. I am scared of what is going to happen next.

With a higher end video card selected, this is a very nice gaming and work system. The only problem I've encountered is playing 'legacy' games that don't react well to the quad core processor (and that certainly isn't the computer's fault!).Looking forward to testing this configuration with more demanding software than my (very) old system could handle in the months ahead. Very nice!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LasVegasSpartan Great product!
I was totally happy with XP but decided once support by Windows stopped, I needed to upgrade my 2005 HP pavilion. Don't particularly care for Windows 8 so when HP offered this HP Envy with Windows 7 on sale, it was what I wanted. I have only had it for 10 days but so far, am very pleased with it. It is much faster and set-up was a snap, although written instructions, rather than a pictorial of the set-up, would be helpful.
