HP Laptop EliteBook 8440P Intel Core i5 520M (2.40 GHz) 4 GB Memory 250 GB HDD 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Great condition, no scratches, very clean, runs very well.

Cons: No webcam, no Bluetooth (but I wan't expecting either).

Other Thoughts: Though it's still early, I am very impressed with the condition of this machine. There was a tiny bit of dirt on one corner of the cover that came off by wiping with my thumb. Screen is perfect (no dead pixels), keyboard has no wear that I can see. Doing Windows updates now via wireless. Seems like a quick machine. Very Happy!

Pros: USB 3.0

Cons: Stop Error BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER in Windows 8.1

Other Thoughts: I purchased this wanting a USB 3.0 wireless adapter and all worked okay (some issues, but at least it worked) with Windows 8. I tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1, but kept receiving an error message "BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER". I changed my wireless adapter (to a Netgear A6200), and the upgrade went smoothly. I then tried plugging this adapter in again (after unplugging the Netgear). As soon as Windows 8.1 recognized it, I received the same error, but as a blue screen error. After unplugging and uninstalling all previous software/drivers for this device, I attempted once again to plug it in to reinstall the latest (though same version) drivers. Still received the same error. Decided to stop banging my head against the wall and will continue with Netgear. I'll keep checking for driver updates, but when you consider just plugging it in wreaks havoc with Windows 8.1, I think I'll just purchase a USB 3.0 adapter from a better reviewed, more reputable manufacturer. Unfortunately, this has cost way too much time and money.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good Reviews

Cons: Requires Case Modification

Other Thoughts: As pancho mentioned, the vertical orientation of the plugs makes a case modification mandatory. If you do not have dividers between the card slots on the back of your case, you'll be set. But if you have dividers, as most do, add extra time for your build. I won't be installing this card until I have the time to modify my case.
