Expert Review

28 February 2012
  • 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

20 March 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.
