Q & As

Compaq 2926EA Desktop PC, Intel Pentium, 2.5GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB, Black 1 5 1 1
Disappointing This product was initially fine, then developed a fault whereby it would suddenly switch off. John Lewis wouldn't replace it, as it was beyond the 28-day period. HP sent the wrong part twice, then said the only solution was to send it away for 10 days - not very practical for anyone who relies on a computer for their work. Am now obliged to buy a different make of PC from a different retailer. 20 May 2013
