Good Battery Experience
Purchased this new HP-grade battery after 5 years on the original. The Buy.com purchasing experience was great. After identifying the lowest available price for a genuine HP replacement (via PriceGrabber), I went with Buy.com due to the high number of other favorable ratings. My net cost was about 30% less than ordering from HP directly. Be sure to use only genuine name brand replacement laptop batteries, as not all that are available on the internet (or otherwise!) are built to the same internal standards. Certain cheaper off-brands have reportedly initiated fires, and if not built correctly, may not last as long or charge as well. The battery was easy install with HP graphical instructions, although I didn't need all the extra cover plates that came with the battery. Excellent battery performance so far - about two weeks of heavy use. I also recommend using standard shipping on Buy.com - the battery arrived much sooner than anticipated.
