This product is well named as other manufacturers must be feeling envy. . As my old hp laptop had given such reliable service i naturally felt drawn towards buying an hp laptop as a replacement. However, i decided to compare all suitable products against each other on the basis of features, performance and price. Quite literally, out of dozens of similarly featured manufacturers i chose the hp envy on the basis of it specification, which is comprehensive, its performance, which is more than adequate for my needs and its price. On the subject of its price, i am delighted to have spent such an small amount of money on a product which delivers so much. So far as performance is concerned, it delivers hand over fist, so to speak, and has proved to be very straightforward in setting up. It also looks very nice indeed and the back lit keys are the icing on the cake. I won’t go into the technical aspects of the product as you, the reader of this review, basically want to know if it is worth the investment.
I’m loving this laptop, had it a few weeks, even after reading about the wifi issues. I’m glad to say i haven’t experienced any of such issues, and that the wifi might take a few minutes to connect on the odd occasion because it’s simply testing the security of the network. But yeah this laptop is working great for me, it’s fast and does absolutely everything i want it to with complete ease.
Great value for money all-in-one. . Edit: i began to have issues with the wi-fi, but only when the laptop was unplugged, however i’ve found a fix for the issue and i’ve not had the problem again – this is what fixed it for me – and i’m fairly sure that it will fix it for everyone else as welli had the same issue – here’s what worked for me:1: right click on the windows button2: select control panel3: select system & security4: select power options5: (do the following for both balanced & power saver) select ‘change plan settings’6: click on ‘change advanced power settings’7: click wireless adapter settings >power saving mode >change to ‘maximum performance’ (for both balanced & power saver battery modes)hey presto, you should now stop losing connectivity to wifi when not plugged inend editan absolutely fantastic laptop for the price, feels nice and premium thanks to half the body being metal (the underside is plastic) the screen is fine, the keyboard is good, the trackpad is ok (although a little squirrely once or twice) and i haven’t had any of the wi-fi issues that some other people have reported. Sound wise, it’s got some decent speakers and in terms of speed, well i haven’t had any issues and i use it as an everyday/work laptop that get’s put through it’s paces. You won’t really have to worry so much about multitasking either as it’s snappy enough, although it can run a little slow every now and again if you’ve got 20+ tabs open in chrome, but i wouldn’t exactly call that a failing. All in all, very happy with the laptop, i’d give it an 8/10, but for the price?. It’s certainly a very good value-for-money buy. If you do happen to have wifi issues, you can simply buy a little usb wi-fi dongle, they cost about £15 and are usually as good/better than what you’ll get in your standard laptop, and are a great way to get around any wifi issues you may have with this laptop (not that i can report any).
Excellent laptop – i cannot understand the negative reviews. . 6-inch fhd laptop (natural silver – metal) – (amd quad a10-8700p, 8 gb ram, 1 tb hdd, amd radeon r6 graphics card, windows 10)excellent laptop. I cannot understand the negative reviews as it really has everything you could need and feels and looks great too. There have been no issues with wifi. I downloaded all the latest windows updates before i started loading the machine with my software and have had no issues whatsoever like the other describe on their negative reviews. Maybe they got a bad machine, but mine is fine. The backlit display is awesome, its a kind of bright white led light with a hint of purple maybe. It also has a nice bright screen, great sound speakers for a laptop.
It runs just a little slowly in some situations.
