  • Good laptop but bad decision on backlighting

    from Kitchener on December 4, 2019

    Overall I liked this laptop as it was sturdy, had good specs, and wasn't a super flashy gaming laptop. However, the keyboard backlight will only stay on for 15 seconds. As of now, there is no way to change this to a longer period or to keep the lighting on. It's a bad decison on HP's part as they used to have the option to change the time period in the BIOS. Research showed many people have contacted them and the help is useless telling them to change BIOS settings that aren't available anymore. It was enough for me to bring this laptop back as the constant need to hit a button first to see the buttons and change in lighting was annoying though it might not matter for others. Too bad as overall I liked it; it ran well, quiet, qnd cool.

  • Nice laptop

    from London on December 3, 2019

    So far, so good. I have it 3 weeks already and I like it very much. It's fast, very good for gaming, and for image analysis that I need in my job. I would recommend this laptop for anyone that likes gaming or need good graphics processing for professional use (or both).

  • no sound

    from hamilton on December 3, 2019

    I had this laptop a few months ago and it came with no sound on the left side. The resolution appeared great, however I wanted a gaming pc not a calculator.
