David, Guildford General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very fast machine - just what I needed.
Bad points:
Having the power switch on the top - I keep the machine in a drawer in my desk so the power button is a little difficult to reach - my old HP had the power switch on the front which was easier.

Maurice, Basingstoke General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to connect and setup, Extremely quiet machine, so quiet i keep checking to see if its actually turned on lol.
Comes with good software that i actually used on my old pc.
Built in wireless and ethernet networking, cordless mouse and keyboard reduced the amount of cabling needed.
Bad points:
HP's Custom case design made transfering my BD Writer and 2TB 2nd Drive awkward and difficult to install and only has fiiting for 1 extra hard drive in what is otherwise a spacious case, so i had to switch to an external hard drive solution and fit an esata controller/adapter.

Steve, Leytonstone General user

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Not so many cables.
Well-packaged.
Powerful PC.
Bad points:
Bad Customer Service at Leyton... there's a KnowHow desk, but when I got to the other, longer desk / tills, they said "oh the knowhow desk is for reservations". Really? Then where's the sign to tell us all that? We're not psychic!
When setting it all up, theres no manual to say what some of the cables are for, or what they connect to - very bad if you're not PC aware or a Techno, especially trying to get the wireless Keyboard to work!
No manaual or CD to load to see what the controls of the huge Remote Control you get with it does, or any hint of a link to HP?!?
There should be a 'quick start' guide, a list of 'whats in the box and what they're for', etc, to check we have what we're supposed to have.

Not very good at all... I had to call PC World techies TWICE, as well as HP to blast them for being stingy on not including any basic things... WE'RE NOT ALL BILL GATES YOU KNOW! :-)
DELL do alot better on this front!

Gerry, Coverack Cornwall General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
High spec without being a silly price; possibly too high for an old silver surfer like me so quite a learning curve getting to grips with Windows 7 as well as everything this fantastic bit of kit seems to offer. Having upgraded from a seven year old desktop to this is rather like swapping the Mini for a E Type ( Yeah - I'm that old !! )
Bad points:
Not found any so far, so fingers crossed.
