Some things to know:
- This is apparently a "club" deal -- it was being sold at Sams Club. It is now apparently being closed-out by the reseller.
- On iTunes, you will need to install a different version of iTunes, because iTunes thinks it's an older video card (it's not, really). It's easy -- iTunes will tell you what to do. BUT: There IS a graphics card, unlike a lot of these budget PCs that come with "integrated graphics". Integrated graphics is not as good as a dedicated graphics card. You can always upgrade it in the future!
- It's big: This is almost a tower. It's not a small computer.
Okay, that out of the way: This is a good computer.
- It has expansion slots. That's nice! Again, you can upgrade it in the future. That means you can buy a smokin' hot graphics card and put it in at some point in the future (and it's easy to work on -- you don't have to be super technical to open the PC up and work on it). You can also upgrade to a 1 TB SSD drive for about $350. In other words, it's plenty quick now, but it's got the "guts" to upgrade to something even more impressive.
- HOWEVER: It only has a 300W power supply, which will limit the types of accessories you can add to it. A big power-drawing graphics card would not work, for example. However, for basic uses, this is fine.
- It's an i7-4790 -- this is a very solid chip. The i7 is the top-of-the-line Intel processor, and better than the i5 you typically find in cheaper systems like this.
- It runs quiet.
- Includes 4 USB 3.0 slots, 2 USB 2.0 slots. I need more, so I bought a cheap Anker expansion hub.
- Monitor is very nice. It is BIG. It comes with a VGA/DVI adapter. This works perfectly fine, but if you want an HDMI connection (supported), you'll need to buy your own.
- To upgrade to 16 gbs of RAM will run you about $80 on Crucial. The machine does not support more than 16gbs of RAM. Changing RAM and working on this computer is easy. It's simple to take apart and it's simple inside.
- Doesn't come with so much junk like other PCs.
For what you get (an i7 proc, a decent amount of RAM, a decent hard drive and a big monitor), it's a very nice deal.
Yes, the keyboard and mouse are weak. In my experience, HP ships crappy keyboards. But no biggie!!! Buy a nice Microsoft or Logitech keyboard & mouse and you're fine.
KLAMP shipped the package very quickly and packaged it securely in one gigantic box. The UPS shipping was a bit problematic, granted it was shipped in the holiday season, between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The UPS "track your shipment" info was wrong for several days, indicating that the package would be delivered at a date and time that had already passed. Eventually it was delivered without my knowing it while I wasn't home, a few days late, but the online tracking data remained behind until after delivery, causing this expensive package to sit unprotected on my front porch overnight. While this was unfortunate, nothing bad came of it, and I expect that these delivery issues aren't uncommon with any carrier during this busy season.
I would have given this bundle 5 stars if it weren't for one thing. The computer and monitor WILL NOT WORK TOGETHER with the VGA cable that comes with it. This was an unwelcome surprise on Christmas Eve, but luckily, we were able to identify this problem before Walmart closed for the holiday and got the cable we needed in the nick of time to save Christmas. The integrated video card has both VGA and HDMI ports on the back of the computer, but the built-in video card is disabled when the NVIDIA video card is added. The NVIDIA video card uses only an upper HDMI or DVI-I port to connect to the monitor. Neither an HDMI or DVI-I cable is included in this bundle, so it is necessary to purchase an HDMI or DVI-I cable separately to get these computer and monitor components to work together at all. There is nothing in the documentation or setup instructions that mention this, nor is there any indication on the disabled HDMI and VGA ports on the back of the computer to indicate that they aren't functional. When I contacted KLAMP about this issue, I was told to call HP. When I called HP, I was told to go to online HP support. It was a bit of a run-around, but eventually it all got sorted out. (Note: Another reviewer mentioned a VGA-to-DVI-I adapter, but my system did not come with one of these, and tech support never mentioned it, so I'm not sure if this is a very recent change.)
Overall, after a slightly bumpy start, I am very pleased with this purchase and would definitely buy it again.
This setup is exactly what I was looking for.
