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:

  • 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

HP Phoenix HPE h9 Review

Digitaltrends
9 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Gaming systems aren’t an area where the big, mainstream desktop manufacturers are usually considered competitive. It’s not uncommon for them to offer a gaming line – even Lenovo produces a gaming-capable desktop known as the K330 – but for the most part these systems fly under the radar. Larger, more expensive custom systems garner the lion’s share of the attention. This is not without reason.
  • Pros: Small enclosure, Affordable price of entry, Agreeable aesthetics, Quiet operation even when gaming
  • Cons: Video card options are limited, Processor is over-kill for gaming, Replacing components is difficult, Limited space for expansion

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
