HP 350 G2 L8B05ES Notebook Review

 

Low-cost all-rounder. Although HP's 350 G2 does not excel in any category, it is not disappointing, either. All in all, it is a basic 15.6-inch all-rounder at a good price-performance ratio that should satisfy the needs of most users.

matte screen, quiet operation, low temperature development, decent keyboard, maintenance hatches, good battery life, limited gaming suitability

12-month warranty only

The review sample we were provided with features a strong Core i5 processor that should have more than enough computing power for most potential users. The laptop is even gaming suitable - although only to a limited degree. The computer runs quietly in...

HP 350 G2

 

Nice price for reasonable specs and a design that means ram, HDD and WiFi card are all easy access.

The 4gb ram was a little lacking. Also the WiFi card is quite slow. Lastly the laptop came with no driver's disk. Not the worst evil but still inconvenient tbh. But a quick look online for the drivers after a ssd install and ram upgrade and it runs...

HP 350 G2

 

- The price is unbelievable for an i5. - It has 2 graphics cards an Intel and Radeon, meaning it has more performance when plugged in. - Easy access to RAM and HDD for upgrades, a thing most others brands dont have now.

- The memory was low, 4GB, i have added 16GB for £50 delivered! - The mouse touch pad amber light is always on when enabled and off when disabled after updating to windows 10 (a common problem with HP devices - not a drive issue - checked). - Laptop is...

Generally feels solid, although the thin screen can wobble. Nice soft touch keyboard. Reasonable battery life. Easy access to HDD and memory cards for upgrading. Reasonably fast. Generally a good allrounder.

There is a known problem with HP machines and Virgin media routers, can be a real pain in the neck to work around. Comes with Windows 8 (which needs all the updates to then allow update to Windows 10) and a load of bundled rubbish.
