HP Pavilion MS214 review

29 November 2009
  • Summary: The HP Pavilion MS214 is an attractive all-in-one computer with a reasonably fast processor and a reasonably low price. For about the same price you can pick up an Asus Eee Top ET2002 with a larger screen and NVIDIA graphics. But the Asus model is hampered by a slow Intel Atom processor.

HP Pavilion All-in-One MS214 Review

16 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The HP isn't built for benchmark speed tests (its Windows Experience Index, dragged down by sub-Aero-worthy graphics, is a wimpy 2.9 on the operating system's 7.9-point scale). But we were curious, so we can report that the MS214 rendered Cinebench R10 's sample scene in five and a half minutes.

Expert Review

2 November 2009
  • Excerpt: This understated, compact all-in-one has more muscle than Atom-powered models. It's a safe pick if your budget is locked at $600, but much brawnier PCs cost just $100 more.
  • Pros: Better performance than Intel Atom-powered nettops, Clean, compact design, Easy to upgrade RAM, hard drive
  • Cons: Bundled peripherals aren’t wireless, Not wall-mountable, Smaller screen than competing models in this price range, Hulu.com content stutters at full-screen

HP Pavilion MS214a

16 March 2010
  • Summary: It won't thrill any Apple fans into not buying an iMac, but HP's latest all-in-one is quietly powerful at an acceptable price point.
  • Pros: Lots of bundled applications, Easy installation
  • Cons: Design is plain, Keyboard is ordinary

An attractive all-in-one desktop PC for the modern living room

7 December 2009
  • Summary: A step up from the Pavilion All-In-One MS212a, this beefier HP PC gives you faster media encoding and the ability play older games. Though better value options are available, this desktop PC should be suitable for families.
  • Pros: Attractive enclosure, MediaSmart software is handy, can handle some older games
  • Cons: Lacks Bluetooth and 802.11n Wi-Fi, bloatware
