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

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fast and easy to set up I finally upgraded my computer because I was running XP. I ordered this computer with Window's 7 because it is a desktop and I feel Windows 8 is more geared to the new touch screen technology and mobile devices. Setting this computer up was a breeze and it is lightening fast not only with the start up, but also with the Internet and gaming. Still a little chunky in size, but smaller than the one I had. Runs really quiet too. . .sits right next to me on my desk and I hear nothing. Last thing. . .It wasn't loaded with a lot of bloatware either. I would definitely recommend this computer to those who love their desktops and want a really good all around machine. April 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Computer Although we have all been forced to upgrade from XP to Win 7, this new computer, and I bought 2 of them, is probably the best choice I could have made for a fully functional workstation that was available to me. April 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Right PC for me at the right time Hardware is always software-driven, and my 8-year-old Windows XP PC (also HP Pavilion) was working just fine, but forced into retirement by Microsoft's decision to stop plugging security holes of Windows XP. I picked this particular PC based on price, current needs and future wants, which are nothing but surfing the multimedia advertising-loaded Web at faster speed. Like my old PC, I will not run Oracle or MS SQL server or AutoCAD on this daily driver. After about a week, I can tell that this new PC is at least 3 times faster than my old Pavilion, whether opening long Word docs or loading Web pages or playing YouTube videos, given the fact that this 4th gen Core i5 quad has 1.6 billion transistors, doubling 3 times the number of transistors in my previous Pentium 4 CPU (Gordon Moore's law still holds true). In addition, the motherboard has expansion slots (PCIe) for other devices, and HP PC case is very easy to open and work with. Also, I am glad that I skipped the Windows 8 even though I had to pay more for Windows 7 software based on the same hardware configuration. Having used Windows 7 occasionally in the past, I know it will transfer my data and apps smoothly, and it is an even better operating system than XP. Windows 8, however, is behaving similarly to the many versions of Microsoft OS that I skipped in the past such as Windows 98, Me, Vista. But Windows 7 is simple, reliable and fast like my previous favorites of Win 3.11, Win 95, Win 2000, and Win XP. I am quite pleased with my purchase, and it is like trading in a 4 cylinder for a decent mid-priced V8 engine that offers buttery smooth power. April 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Extreme Disappointment The computer was a gift to a family member. Despite her well-versed experience, she cannot get the machine to work after a total crash. Your help desk is sending her a disc to reinstall the OS. Please note that I purposely ordered the one she got because it has Windows 7 on it. I am typing his note on a 10 year old HP with WIndows XP, I have never had a problem, and the box next to it is running on Windows 7 - again, never a problem. I told her to send the box back and ask for a new one. What she will do is up to her. April 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Win 7 & HP Label were the deal makers I bought a laptop from a retail store about 15 months ago with Win 8 OS and it stinks. Just converted it to Win 8 Start button so it would act like Win 7. When we saw the offer for a Win 7 OS we jumped at it because we needed to upgrade one of our PCs. Now everything here acts like one OS, Win 7, which works fine for us. We are not of the touchy feely touch screen generation, so like mice and keyboards better. It has taken us a few days to get it set up (our local techie is ailing), but we got everything aboard today and the new user is happy. Added HP Pavillion 22 bw IPS monitors to our newest PCs. April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Real Bargin I bought two of these computers for my small office, to replace aging 10 yr old XP machines. This computer is a bargain powerhouse. Simple, clean, beautiful styling, quite, fast and tons of storage. You won't go wrong with this one. April 11, 2014
