HP Pavilion HPE h9-1120t Phoenix Desktop PC Review

17 April 2014
  • Summary: Intel knocked it out of the park with its Ivy Bridge platform, but even so, that doesn't mean any vendor can step to the plate and hit a homerun. It takes the right selection of parts and attention to detail to build a performance oriented machine worth buying. Did HP do it? For the most part, the answer is yes. HP's refreshed Phoenix, as configured, is capable of tackling a variety of computing chores, from multimedia projects to high-end gaming.
  • Pros: Compact and Powerful:, Pixel Pushing Power:, Upgrade Potential:, Runs Fairly Quiet:, Come Right In!:
  • Cons: Messy Interior:, Mid-Range PSU:

HP Pavilion HPE h9-1120t Phoenix review

12 June 2012
  • Summary: The HP Pavilion HPE h9-1120t may not be the prettiest or most powerful PC around, but it's a good deal for the price. Not only do you get decent graphics and gaming performance, you also get four USB 3.0 ports, built-in Wi-Fi, a Blu-ray disc player/DVD-writer, and 2TB of hard-drive space. The h9-1120 performs well for its class, and is a good choice for budget-minded gamers.

30 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Can we recommend the Pavilion HPE h9-1120t Phoenix? Absolutely—it's a well-balanced, fast-for-years-to-come gaming PC at a fair price. But considering its slightly low-rent case, boutique-brand competition, and—perhaps most of all—the fact that we've only seen two Ivy Bridge desktops to date, we're stopping just short of awarding it our Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: Very strong productivity and gaming performance, Decent expansion options for case size
  • Cons: Case's design and build quality suffer by comparison to high-end components, At this price, an SSD would be appreciated

  • Conclusion: On the other hand, if future upgradability isn’t quite as important to you as gamer-centric good looks and customizable lighting, Alienware’s X51 is a better option at this price. Alienware’s slightly higher-end graphics card and Intel CPU simply add up to better performance overall. And the Alienware, while it sacrifices future internal expansion, comes in a more conveniently compact chassis.
  • Pros: Solid productivity, gaming performance, Substantive upgrade options, considering its compact size, USB 3.0 ports and Blu-ray drive included
  • Cons: Lags behind similarly priced Alienware X51 in both performance and visual flair, Too much pre-installed software, No switch to turn off red chassis lighting

HP Pavilion HPE h9z

5 December 2012
  • Summary: Slower than all of its competition, the HP Pavilion HPE Phoenix h90z is impossible to recommend.
  • Pros: HP's new Pavilion HPE Phoenix h9z can at least boast decent expandability and a competitive set of connectivity options.
  • Cons: HP's latest attempt at a gaming PC fails due to its back-of-the-pack performance compared with other gaming desktops in this price range.

Test : HP Pavilion HPE h9-1135ef Phoenix

PC World
5 July 2012
  • Excerpt: HP propose avec sa gamme d'ordinateurs Phoenix, des configurations PC musclées destinées aux gamers. Nous en avons reçu un modèle à la rédaction équipé entre autre d'un processeur quad-core Intel Ivy Bridge, d'un SSD de 128 Go, de 4 Go de RAM et d'une Radeon HD 7950. De quoi a priori jouer dans de très bonnes conditions, mais qu'en est-il en réalité et cette machine vaut-elle l'investissement de 1600 € demandé par le géant américain ?
  • Pros: Performances, Look du boîtier, SSD + HDD, Silencieux
  • Cons: Prix, Évolutivité faible, Intégration des cables, Clavier et souris basiques

TEST: HP Pavilion HPE h9-1030sc Phoenix - Heftig pc i liten kasse

PC World
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Kraftige spill-pc-er er gjerne ikke det første vi tenker på når vi hører navnet HP. Selskapet har et stort utvalg av både stasjonære og bærbare pc-er, men de er sjelden myntet på de mest kresne brukerne, som for eksempel spillinteresserte.
  • Pros: Meget god ytelse. Plasseringsvennlig. Barsk. Stillegående. Wlan.
  • Cons: Beats Audio er bare rør.
