5 out of 5 eggsWorked as advertised

Pros: I needed something for streaming video and making presentations at church. I decided to get one of these while not spending a bunch of money. It worked just fine and was in pretty good condition for being used in a lease. The back of the screen has a custom sticker placed over it that has a brushed aluminum finish look and feel to it and makes it look more new. I don’t mind this as I know this has been used in a business for up to three years and would normally have some wear, but this one must have been kept in a docking station for most of that time. We use these at my office so I knew a little about them and wanted one. When first plugged in, it went through the usual win 7 registration process then over the next couple of days, loaded all the updates about 200 total.

These laptops are kind of power hungry and draw about 30 watts at idle after it’s booted but can draw over 100 watts while charging. It has a fan on the side that blows hot air from the mother board. It came with the original HP 5 amp 19V power pack which has a good heavy wire on it. The battery took a good charge over about 2 hours and power meter readings looked normal for what you could expect with a new one.

Everything was just as I expected.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsHP EliteBook 8530P refurb 15" notebook

Pros: *Great condition
*Quick arrival
*Great price
*Love the speed vs my old Windows XP

Cons: Wish it came with instruction book, etc.... As someone who is not very IT oriented and only upgrading to this because my old HP was Windows XP and I grew weary of all the "issues" of old system, suddenly getting Windows 7 with whole new look and operation, it has been a bit challenging.

3 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: Windows 7 laptop
decent speed & RAM
Exterior in perfect condition

Cons: LCD (not LED) screen, and as such is a bit on the dark side
Laptop WILL NOT charge battery. Thought it was a battery issue, so I actually bought another, only to find that the charging system is the issue.
Refurbisher obviously never even booted into an operating system, or they would have seen "Battery: 59%, Plugged In, Not Charging"

Other Thoughts: Returning for replacement. Hopefully I get one that outwardly looks as good, but actually can be used on the battery.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very quiet.
Everything works reasonably well.

Cons: Poorly refurbished.

Other Thoughts: Overall satisifed with the performance of the unit itself, but it is still early. I'm dropping a couple stars due to the poor job of refurbishing.

Computer arrived with a dent in the outer case and dirt still on the keyboard and surrounding areas. Old dirty pieces of tape still attached to the unit.
I understand this is a refurbished unit, but when the description states the unti has been refurbished to manufacturer specs, I don't expect the unit to arrive with a dent in the cover and still dirty - the cover should have been replaced and properly cleaned.
This unit should more appropriately be categorized as "used" - not refurbished.

I'll adjust my rating if necessary afetr putting it through its paces. I normally would not review an item this early into ownership, but the condition of the unit upon arrival was disappointing, so I decided to write this to make others aware.

I'm still deciding whether to go through the trouble of RMA and replacement.

This is the first and last time I'll buy anything refurbished through NewEgg. Whoever refurbed this did a poor job.
