I have had this for about 3 weeks and I love it! The speed is great with 6 cores and 10gs of ram. The video card is not to shabby but not intended for gamers. I wish it had a stock 500W power supply insted of 300W. Planning on upgrading the graphics card to a EVGA GeForce 550 Ti and a 600W power supply. The "b" button is pretty cool in my opinion, so is the red led bar on the tower. No regrets

***UPDATE 12/10/12

I have installed a EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Superclocked 2048 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI/Mini-HDMI SLI Ready Graphics Card, 02G-P3-1469-KR and a Antec BP550 Plus 550W ATX12V V2.3 Modular Power Supply

I contacted HP and they said some power supplys wont work because the montherboard will not except high wattage PSUs. The fist PSU I got was a Corsair 750W and the computer did not boot. Im not sure what the max wattage is for this computer but I have 550W installed and it works flawlessly.

0 Stars - HP Customer Service is a nightmare. This computer quit working about 24 hours after delivery. Since that time, we have been on the phone with HP every day for hours and have returned the computer once for repair which was unsuccessful in solving the problem. We continue to attempt to resolve this issue with HP but HP seems unable to resolve the issue and after one month, we still have a non functioning brand new computer. We are regularly promised call backs which never occurr and have to start over again every time we call. Since the computer worked for 24 hours after receipt (was not dead on arrival), this item was never eligible for return.

Let Amazon know of my problems and they agreed to allow me to return the desktop. Thank you Amazon!

My computer arrived in the HP box without any extra Amazon packaging and without any damage. I had the computer for 2 days before trouble.

After downloading 65 HP updates the computer shut down and would not start up again.

Returned this machine to Amazon for a refund with no problems.

The computer arrived very quickly and was easy to set up, probably no longer than 30 minutes. I have has no problems with it and it's been two weeks, compared to my last computer (Dell) this runs circles around it hands down (even though the dell was 3 years older and had problems with it from day 1). For the money it's a decent computer, the sound is awesome, the speed is great, playing Skyrim with no upgrade parts installed all stock and it looks and plays smoothly, I highly recommend this computer for anyone who wants a decent mid level computer.

This is a very easy computer to setup out of the box. I think anyone can do it with no tech skills.

It took a relatively no time to have it up and running on my network. There have been no issues at all with the computer so far. The speed is very highly rated, it has lots of room for expansion, and already features lots of great add-ons.

It was very easy to send all of my files from my old computer to the new one.

The computer is so quiet, I have to look to see if it is even on. The loudest part is the hard drive when it is searching through.

To the guy who has an issue with the B key....REALLY?!?!?! This is not that big of a deal. If you don't like it, use the keyboard from your old computer.

I would recommend this computer to anyone - it is top notch for the price range for any consumer.

Product came on time and was packaged well. Looks great and was easy to set up. Unfortunately, the printer I had, also an HP, was not compatable with this PC for some reason. But I wanted an all-in-one and this was a good excuse to go get one. I don't think the red light bar on the cpu is distracting at all, of course mine is on the floor next to the desk so it's really not in my field of vision anyway. Great price, at least a hundred dollars less than the stores around here.

ADDED UPDATE TO THIS REVIEW ON 12-16-2012 10:43 A.M.:

I just wanted to post a conclusion. I received the Computer back from SoCalDeals, Los Angeles on 12-14-2012. I reinstalled it and found that is was working. I added my updates and some files, email Windows Live Mail, Ccleaner, DeFrag etc. When I restarted the error message came back. So my next option was to go and load the back up discs (5 CD Disc) This wipes out the total memory and brings it back to the factory installation. Note that the only things that should be plugged into the computer are the mouse and the key board, remember to also unplug the speakers. The HP people pack instructions with the discs for additional help. Also HP support will go thru a presentation on their Web site and YouTube also has help videos available, then I reloaded my files and programs, 2 hours later. (This could take longer depending on the computer,this computer is super fast). One important point I need to make - is that when you update and add programs, make sure you turn off the computer on the shut down switch in between. Make sure that it comes to a complete rest before restarting using the switch on the tower. This lets the computer adjust to the changes with much less stress. Also eliminate the plug ins (memory sticks, jump drives, external hard drive connections) to just the ones that you need at the time.

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF MY ORIGINAL REVIEW:

I received the HP Computer in two days. The order was placed on Monday November 12, A.M. The condition as received was excellent, it was a refurbished unit, it has 90 days under the manufacture's warrenty. Yesterday, Wednesday, November 13th, I called in for a set of software and driver discs which I am expecting delivery next week.
