Customer ratings and reviews for HP Pavilion 500-205t Desktop PC with Windows 7

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice computer but I can't use my camera card I haven't purchased a computer for many years, my last one had XP so is obviously outdated. I knew I didn't want Windows 8, my mom has one and it's a nightmare, so I was happy that HP was selling computers w/Windows 7. I went online to check out what they had and found one I was interested in but I wanted to speak to someone from HP first. I called and told the man what I do and what I would like in a computer and he actually picked out the one I was interested in so I was very pleased with that. I purchased the computer, have it all set up, and then, because part of my job is photographing animals, I took my pictures and went to put in my camera card only to find that there's only one port on the computer, which does not work with my camera card- huge bummer, and I never even thought to ask about it because all of my previous computers have various sized ports and I just figured this computer would have one as well, lesson learned for my next purchase. Now to download my photos I have to use a cord from my camera to the computer which is a hassle but at least it works. Aside from that the computer is easy to set up and works great. Next time I will be sure to ask about the camera card. September 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love windows 7 This computer has everything I was looking for and more. I love that I could still get it with windows 7! The set up was so easy and I have had no problems with it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good well rounded computer that will handle everything I ask it to do and more. September 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far, so good. I really only wanted HP. This seemed fairly priced for what I got. Had other HP's that lasted pretty well and hope this one lasts me for awhile. September 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by like everything about this computer Highly recommend getting the quad core, so fast and more responsive than my 4 year old dual core desktop. September 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This computer is horrific and being sent back I received this computer yesterday. I downloaded my internet provider's McAfee which has always worked great before. By then end of the evening. It had quarantined a Trojan. A Trojan never got into my current computer which is not top of the line and that I've had for 7 years. It said it downloaded 41 Windows Updates. I did not confirm this and I don't believe it did. Today, it said it had 63 updates. I let it add the updates and got error messages. Bad error messages like I have never seen before. I looked to see how the updates went and half of them said "Pending" with a couple that failed. Windows tried to fix it and couldn't. Error alert after error alert. One error alert said in bright red that there was a problem with the Registry. In other words, the hard drive on this computer was corrupt. Then, McAfee found two more Trojans. Then, pop ups began. From every corner of the screen, never ending popups. Then, those viral popups that start scanning your computer or tell you your computer is at risk and scams over and over. I was on the phone with technical support for 7 hours off and on. The first one was nice and she got my computer to where it was when it left the factory. Not that I had done much to it except install drivers for printer, speakers, etc. The second tech called to do a "check in" and did not care at all. He got off the phone fast. I then called a third tech who told me that it was perfectly normal to have dozens of pop ups and scam ads taking over my computer. Oh, BTW, I also tried to install Mozilla Firefox off IE and it said it was downloading and then it wasn't there! But, about 7 other things were suddenly on my desktop. All scam and rip off sites. This computer's hard drive and faulty registry overrode my ability to download Firefox, kept trying to override McAfee, except luckily McAfee caught the trojans. I know HP must be a good company or they would not be in business. But, this was over the top bad and I am exhausted. September 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Delighted to be able to get it with Windows 7 But-- The machine is great, but Windows 7 needed a LOT of updating--over 100 Windows updates right out of the box . I couldn't install some new software because the drivers in Windows were either outdated or hadn't installed correctly. But once I was able to get past all the installation issues, I'm very happy with this computer. September 3, 2014
