    I keep hearing what a good company HP is. I will not mention the stock (maybe later) but I can tell you this: I have ordered close to half a million dollars worth of enterprise level equipment, 80% of it HP. Every single computer equipment has had a major problem.

    HP used to be rock solid hardware. Their stuff now is at best below average. I have started to look at Fujitsu as replacement. I am not impressed with DELL.

    I agree. HP gear is just not reliable. The best server hardware I've ever used are Apple Xserves. Too bad Apple decided not to make enterprise hardware anymore.

    I have to agree. Even their printer drivers are now crap. A few days ago I inexplicably started getting 'hpmsn093.dll not responding' from my LaserJet M1522nf. Searched for a solution and could only find a suggestion to try to uninstall/reinstall. Well, uninstall gave an error message and did not remove everything so I tried to manually delete as much as I could. Then I downloaded a complete reinstall from the HP site. And that would not work; it gets about halfway through and hangs. So now I'm left with a no printer functionality.

    I've had HP printers for decades; something's changed. And it has totally convinced me never to get HP again.

    HP laptop failure rates over 2-3 years are one of the highest in the industry according to research
