It's 5/24/13 and I've been trying to get this laptop fixed for weeks. My laptop is a total lemon.
4 months after purchasing this laptop for my work in photography and filmmaking, the screen began to go absolutely haywire. It flickers, flashes, then gets stuck on screens of random lines and colors. I'd barely used the laptop prior to this starting, as I own much more powerful PCs at home. This is basically my business trip machine and I've only had to use it on one trip. From my experience, it looks as if the graphics card is fried, however it works fine when attached to an external monitor, which leads me to believe that there is faulty wiring going to the display.
2 weeks ago I began the warranty process with HP, sent the laptop to them for repair. It came back with the note that all they did was reinstall Windows. Now, with a fresh Windows install it is still unusable... absolutely nothing has changed. Even before I installed a single program. This is, and always was, a problem with the hardware.
I called HP support again and they started a new warranty repair, but I am going on the exact business trip that I bought this laptop for next Sunday. I will not even get the label to ship it to them until Tuesday. They would get it Wednesday. Then they'd have to ship it back, fixed, Thursday for me to get the laptop back in time. Considering it took them 5 business days to reinstall Windows the last service call, I seriously doubt they will repair a hardware problem in one day.
I'm at a loss of what to do at this point. I was escalated to HP Corporate on the phone today and explained my situation. I've been entirely polite, as I find that to be the best way to get things resolved with customer service. I asked to ship the computer to them myself, today, without their label to make this go faster and they can't let me do that. I asked for a loaner laptop while it is getting fixed and they can't do that. I asked for an exchange for a refurbished unit and they can't do that. I feel I am being completely reasonable here for a $1300 laptop that hasn't even survived 4 months of light use. I bought this mostly for video editing on the road, but had not even done any video editing on it yet, so I am definitely not pushing the system yet. I'm not asking for a refund, I'm just asking for my SECOND repair in a row to come with a loaner that I can use on my business trip! I mean, it's been 19 days now without a laptop and we're just now starting the whole repair process over again.
Corporate told me that they could send me a loaner if I had purchased a business laptop. That basically they don't care that I need this laptop for business because it's a consumer laptop. The problem is, I did plenty of research before purchasing this laptop and, at the time, they did not offer business laptops with 1080p IPS monitors, something I absolutely need so that I can color calibrate the screen and work on 1080p video. This laptop has professional specs (that outclass their business machines) and a professional price (that is more expensive than most of their business machines) but needing it for business doesn't concern them.
I own two HP desktop machines, each one costing over $2,000... an absurd amount for Windows PCs, but I really do need this stuff for business. I am a designer, photographer, writer, and filmmaker. Search my name on Amazon and you will find some of my cookbooks. I have done the design and food photography for cookbooks with over 1 million copies in print. Last year, I co-authored, designed, and photographed Great Food Fast, the 5th bestselling cookbook of the year. I am also a filmmaker. On June 4th, an award-winning movie I shot called "The Battery" will be released nationally by the same distributor as Super Size Me and Exit Through the Gift Shop. The movie was entirely edited, sound mixed, and color corrected on HP computers. My HP computers did the work of an entire post-production studio. When it comes to design, photography, and filmmaking, I have to constantly defend my use of Windows PCs instead of the more industry accepted Macs, so I guess this is my lesson learned.
Now, here I am, flying up to NY next week to promote the national release of my movie, and even after 19 days dealing with HP, I won't have a laptop to bring with me. I need to go up there to film and then edit commercials and promotional material requested by the press and my only option is to buy an entirely new laptop to do this... leaving myself with a $1300 paperweight that I'd be lucky to sell used for $800 if an when it ever got fixed. Quite honestly, I'd be afraid to sell it used, as I don't want to be responsible if and when it simply broke again for the next sad sack who purchases it from me.
Stay far, far away from this model... and I'd say to stay far away from HP if you expect a working device, or at least a warranty repair to take any less than a month. I'm still holding out hope that HP will read this and look up my case, under the name Christian Stella. But, seeing as I already have a caseworker (Diana) at the highest level of customer service, and she can't do anything to help me, I'm sure I'm simply screwed.
Quite honestly, I feel like filming myself taking a hammer to this piece of crap, since I won't even be able to use it for the first thing I actually need to use it for. I have no confidence in their repair technicians after the last repair resulted in them simply reinstalling Windows, something I could have done myself.
You can search YouTube for "Christian Stella Spectre Touchsmart" if you want to see how bad my issues with this laptop are.
This laptop's SATA 3 on the mSATA connector, but only SATA2 for the regular HDD. No worries - I have upgraded my mSATA SSD drive to 256 GB, but it wasn't easy - here's what I did. Hopefully it will save you some trouble.
Installing the mSATA SSD
1. Was able to get the screws out back plate off without much trouble.
2. Remove the existing mSATA and put in the new one.
3. I chose not to have the existing HDD, so I removed it. (256 GB is plenty of space for me and I chose to have longer battery life than space. Just having an SSD has added 30 - 45 mins easy to existing battery life).
4. Even if you choose to leave the HDD in there, it is recommended that you disconnect the HDD so that it doesn't interfere with the new install of OS. You can reconnect it later.
Installing the OS and making the mSATA bootable
1. I chose to install Windows 8 via a bootable USB.
2. This laptop comes with a UEFI enabled motherboard, so you need to format the USB as FAT 32. UEFI will not recognize NTFS format for booting. Need a USB of more than 4GB
3. Mount the Win 8 ISO and copy all the contents to USB.
4. You will need another USB, also FAT 32 and copy the Intel RST drivers from here - [...]%208*&DownloadType=Drivers. Get the f6flpy-x64.zip file and unzip the contents to the USB. Win 8 will ask for these drivers during install.
5. Change the BIOS to boot from USB.
6. Insert the Win 8 USB only and reboot the machine.
7. You will get Win 8 prompt to install - proceed and choose advanced options. You will not see any drives listed.
8. Insert the USB with Intel RST drivers and click load drivers - installer will detect the drivers and install will proceed.
9. Once the OS is installed, pls go to the Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\System Settings and turn off "Fast Startup" - this was the biggest sticking point for me. I went through the entire setup twice before this, but everytime when the system went into the hybrid sleep mode and woke up, the system would not detect a bootable drive and I did not find anyway to recover from this than to go through the entire process again.
10. I also disabled Hybrid Sleep. You won't need all these features, your system is so fast while booting from SSD, that you won't miss them.
11. Install all the drivers for the machine - I stayed away from Intel Rapid Start and Intel Smart Connect drivers, just to be safe.
I have the SSD running since 2 days and its working great so far. Keeping my fingers crossed. Let me know how your install goes, or if you have any other tips.
BTW, I did some hard drive speed tests and I am getting the advertised speeds (450+ read and 250+ write). I also upgraded the SSD firmware from Crucial website.
MY ORIGINAL REVIEW
Let me start of by saying that I would have given it 4.5 stars if I could. I was looking for an ultrabook to replace my trusty old Dell Vostro 1520 (Core 2 duo). This was my criteria:
1. 13 - 15 inches.
2. Core I5 or Core I7
3. More than 4 GB or RAM
5. 1080p display.
6. Ability to upgrade
I was willing to compromise on the processor and ram and not anything else. After several weeks of doing some research online I narrowed it down to the HP Spectre XT touchsmart and ASUS zenbook ux32a touchscreen. I was completely blown away by the Asus Zenbook, it has to be the most beautiful windows machine out there. But there were several things working against it. It came with a Core i5 and 4GB of ram and the worst part - its not upgradeable. Although there is a higher priced version available with an i7 and 8GB of ram, but its nowhere to be found.
Why I chose the HP Spectre XT
I found that the HP Spectre XT touchsmart matched all of my criteria better than the Zenbook, so I started paying more attention to it. I am actually glad that I purchased this machine over the Zenbook because of the 15.5 inch vs 13 inch screen. I am a programmer and the bigger screen definetely helps while looking at code.The 1080p IPS screen is awesome and I absolutely love it! I do like the fact that this machine comes with an i7 and 8GB of RAM. The integrated SSD is great and resumes the machine in a matter of seconds. I love the keyboard and the touchpad and had absolutely no issues with them. The aluminum body definitely gives it that premium look. The speakers are quite good and I am more than happy for my use. The touchscreen works flawlessly and compliments the Windows 8 UI very well. Its not the lightest ultrabook around, but you have to remember that this is a 15 inch ultrabook.
The best part about this ultrabook is that its completely upgradable. You can even find a repair manual on the HP website which shows you how to replace each and every component. You can replace everything including the RAM, hard drive, battery - which is really cool.
My biggest gripe is the battery - you will be lucky to get 4 hours out of it. But I don't travel a whole lot and I can compromise with that. I would have give this laptop 5 stars if the battery life was a bit better. I am planning on upgrading to 256 GB SSD and that should help with the battery life and performance. The power adapter could have been designed better for a $1200+ ultrabook. Its just an old style brick and nothing fancy about it.
Inspite of the battery life, I highly recommend this ultrabook. You are no going to find a better ultrabook at this price point with comparable specs.
The keyboard light, design and metallic finish makes it beautiful. It has 2 USB 3.0 inputs and 1 thunderbolt, what else do you want? battery with a full wifi takes about 4 hours, and the vga is more than decent, perhaps with the thunderbolt later can connect a VGA external gamer to give more power.
The touch screen is really good, it has very good response.
The only thing serious would narrow the trackpad, which gives a feeling fragile.
Es una de las ultrabooks mas potentes que existe hoy día en el mercado, hasta que casi es una notebook. Pesa 2.1 kilogramos que podría considerarse algo pesado para una ultrabook, pero compensa la potencia de todo lo que tiene, el procesador i7 y la pantalla de 15.6" con resolución 1920x1080!! es realmente nítida y espectacular.
El teclado luminoso, su diseño y acabado metalico lo hace hermoso. Tiene 2 entradas usb 3.0 y 1 thunderbolt, que mas quieres? la batería con el wifi a full dura aproximadamente 4 horas, y la vga es mas que decente, quizá con el thunderbolt mas adelante se podrá conectar una vga gamer externa para darle mas potencia.
La pantalla táctil es realmente buena, tiene muy buena respuesta.
Lo único que acotaría seria el trackpad, que da una sensación de frágil.
