Good product-terrible touch pad
4 Star Review   By GGSLP on HP - May 12, 2013   

This laptop is a great size for a variety of uses. Initially I thought it was Windows 8 that was the problem however it is clearly the touch pad. The touch pad is terrible. It is extremely sensitive. I have chosen to use the desktop often because of the high sensitivity of the touch pad. I plugged in a wireless mouse and now fine the laptop to function better. I would recommend it IF you also get a wireless mouse.

Having some issues.
1 Star Review   By aylanier on HP - Feb 5, 2013   

I just received my computer over the weekend. I previously had a Dell which I was VERY unhappy with. So far with this HP, some of the buttons do not seem to work such as the button to turn the computer on/off and the button which opens up to insert my disk. I have to keep pushing the buttons several times. Also my fan comes on and causes my computer to freeze. The setup instructions are not clear at all. The way the picture is taken and the diagrams are drawn, I cannot tell which buttons the diagram are pointing to.

2 Star Review   By Anonymous on HP - Jan 3, 2013   

I chose the HP Pavillion g7-22220 because my Slimline Desktop has been such a great piece of equipment. I can't say if its the new OS, Windows 8 or the machine, but this machine has had to restart on numerous occasions. Also none of my libraries are working. very disappointed so far.

5 Star Review   By Jan48 on HP - Jan 2, 2013   

This is my first notebook and it works very well for what I use it for. I've had to work a few things out but nothing major. I've got a desktop with windows 7 and I'm so glad I went with windows 8 it took a couple of days to play around and figure things out but overall I really do like 8 Also this is my 1st HP PC ...so far very pleased

Pretty Good Laptop
4 Star Review   By ThatRandomGuy on HP - Dec 26, 2012   

Well, i have to say, this isn't a bad product. Had this for about a week, and no major problems. Its got very fast startup, textured touchpad, nice speakers. Battery life isn't as great as you would think. Bout two hours on "High Performance." All i don't like is the finish, its a silverish black, leaves alot of visible fingerprints. But otherwise, good laptop for the money. And if you want to do some small scale gaming on it with steam, i think i wouldn't want to run anything with higher requirements than Deus Ex.

1 Star Review   By lth2012 on HP - Dec 24, 2012   

I bought this computer to surf the net, check emails and make webcam videos. The webcam has a delayed 3-5 second video caputure issue that literally had me waiting after each word I spoke for it to "catch up". Also, Youtube videos were not as quick to launch as I thought they should be and once they did launch the computer would at times freeze during the video. And after one day of use, the computer started experiencing Micrsoft issues and literallty shutting down every couple of hours. I'm not sure if that was a Windows 8 issue or this computer in particular. Either way, I was not satisfied with the performance so therefore returned this machine. My company usings HP computers and they normally work pretty well and so I'm going to spend a little more money for a more advanced HP model and I hope like heck that this one works as expected. One plus about this computer was the 10-key. If you're like me and you work with #'s alot, then a 10-key keyboard is an absolute bonus with any laptop. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that would be favorable about this machine.

not too sure about Windows8
3 Star Review   By JF321 on HP - Nov 27, 2012   

Its been a week and I'm not too sure about windows 8. so far, its slower and requires more mouse clicks than 7 did for the same functions (logging off, restarting, etc..) Maybe if I had a touch screen. The mail app doesn't (or at least hasn't) synced with my address book so I can't send new emails if I don't remember the address. I do like the live feeds on the apps, but I'm pretty certain the constant draw on my already marginal wifi just slows me down more.
