Hewlett Packard Escondido California

Complaint: I purchased an HP laptop in December 2013. I immediately noticed that the laptop did not run as fast as promised in the ad descriptions, and the reviews. There were so many unnecessary apps and programs on the unit, I chalked it up to that. Also, I only needed the unit for writing and basic internet usage. It ran fine for the first 6-7 months. All of a sudden, I was losing my network and printer connections every day, sometimes multiple times a day. My personal settings would be lost, and I would have to reset everything according to my preferences. It took several attempts to open both internet and non-internet programs. Internet Explorer would just drop off out of nowhere, so I had to go back onto the internet and try to locate the website I was viewing when it dropped. I checked for viruses multiple times and nothing showed. I also checked the registration keys and other logs to make sure I was not hacked. Everything came up clear every single time. I originally thought it was related to the cable/router issues I was having. However, a few months later that issue was resolved, but my laptop was acting up far worse. I was having to reboot just to unfreeze my unit when it tried to download items from the internet. The internet speed was even more sluggish than when I purchased the laptop. I contacted HP, they took three weeks to respond. They said that I was out of my warranty when I contacted them, I think I was about 2-3 weeks out? The first agent stated I would have to pay $350 or more to repair my unit. I filed a BBB case, as I should not have been having such issues, and multiple issues, so early on. The second agent that contacted me was much more helpful. He offered to do a free repair. However, the repair lasted only 2-3 weeks, and now my laptop is in FAR WORSE shape than ever! I have to reboot all the time because the screen will black out completely out of nowhere, it freezes, programs shut down by themselves, as well as a continuation of the previous problems. I opened a second BBB case, and they responded saying it sounded like a virus. I told them I had already run a program confirming no virus issues. I also ran a second program that also confirmed no viurs. I opened 1-2 more BBB cases, and crickets. I finally notified the FTC so that this won’t happen again to another consumer. I had told them I just wanted an exact replacement of my unit, nothing fancier, no extra bells and whistles. They said they don’t give replacements past the 30 day buyer’s remorse period. I told them I did not have buyer’s remorse, I had a lemon! They then offered a refund at a discounted rate for as long as I’ve owned the laptop, or a discount on a new laptop. Why should I have to buy a new laptop after only a little over a year??

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on Beware.org, it is strongly advised to avoid Hewlett Packard Escondido California in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Hewlett Packard Escondido California. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike Beware.org, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Hewlett Packard Escondido California is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
