Review: HP Envy 17 3D (Early 2012)

Notebookcheck
20 February 2012
  • Summary: Elegant entertainment machine. HP has just updated its premium notebook lineup by reintroducing the 15.6-inch Envy 15 in an all-new design, and the 17.3-inch Envy 17 has been given the same makeover. The latter is also available in a 3D edition, which is the model that we will be taking a close look at today.
  • Pros: Attractive design, High overall performance, Good display, Excellent sound quality, Comparatively thin and lightweight, Good selection of ports, The new design is very appealing. A combination of good overall performance and excellent workmanship makes the Envy 17 3D a great entertainment machine.
  • Cons: Practically never silent, GPU barely sufficient for stereoscopic 3D gaming, Lid prone to smudges, Although the Radeon HD 7690M does a good job within the temperature constraints of this comparatively slim notebook, a speedier GPU would have been preferable for stereoscopic 3D gaming.

HP Envy 17 3D 17-2000ee

  • Summary: Verdict: Given its positioning its disappointing that the Envy lacks gaming grunt. If gaming isn’t a concern however, you’ll find the Envy 17 a capable app machine and an immersive 3D entertainer.
  • Pros: Application workhorse, manages to create immersive 3D experiences, comfortable to work on.
  • Cons: Extremely large and heavy, not a gaming machine.

Review: HP Envy 17 3D

Wired
10 June 2011
  • Excerpt: If you thought 3-D was a tough sell for the living room, now imagine if you had to lug the technology around with you. That, in fact, is the big sell of the HP Envy 17 3D, and any other 3-D-equipped laptop: It gives you the world of three dimensions on the go. Can you feel the excitement? No? Well, ahem.
  • Pros: Three dimensions, people! Can you dig it? Backlit keyboard. Impressive “Beats” audio system. Dazzling, super-bright display. Includes Adobe Photoshop and Elements combo.
  • Cons: 3-D experience is gimmicky, weak and already boring. Loud, grinding fan drowns out those awesome speakers when laptop heats up. There’s just no excuse for a computer this big to have arrow keys this pathetically small.

  • Excerpt: This 3D-capable laptop is identical to the 2D-only Envy 17 we loved, but its finicky 3D makes the price premium tough to swallow. Stick with the non-3D version for now.
  • Pros: Speedy for price, Full-HD, gorgeous LCD, Huge touch pad, Above-average audio, Slot-loading Blu-ray drive
  • Cons: Shaky 3D capability boosts price too much, Brief battery life, Subpar multitouch input

HP ENVY 17 3D Review

SlashGear
1 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The display is bright, the display is sharp, and the display is HUGE. This is a desktop replacement without a doubt, and you'll never go back to a tower again if this monster is slid under your nose (that's a bit presumptuous, I know you love building your own machines and enclosures and all that, but this is a really really tasty alternative to DIY.

HP Envy 17 3D Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 December 2010
  • Summary: The Envy 17 3D is not cheap, but for $1,649 you get a premium design, quad-core power, solid gaming performance, Blu-ray, and a bright 1080p display. The 3D experience isn't as robust or as seamless as laptops powered by Nvidia's 3D Vision technology, but we like that the TriDef 3D software can convert 2D content on the fl, and supports many of the latest games.

Let's cut to the chase.
  • Pros: Three dimensions, people! Can you dig it? Backlit keyboard. Impressive "Beats" audio system. Dazzling, super-bright display. Includes Adobe Photoshop and Elements combo.

  • Summary: With the original price of Rs. 89,990, HP are now offering the Envy 17 for a reduced price of Rs. 69,990 throughout India. This offer started recently and will be applicable for the next couple of months. This is good pricing for a 17.3-inch multimedia notebook that’s capable of playing 3D Blu-rays. If those are your requirements then it’s certainly a good option.
