HP Pavilion dv7-2185DX

CNET
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: HP makes excellent, slick multimedia machines, such as the Pavilion dv7-2185DX, but we'd still trade its quad-core CPU for a full HD 1080p display and Blu-ray.
  • Pros: Plenty of RAM and a big hard drive; slick, attractive design; discrete graphics; quad-core CPU.
  • Cons: Screen resolution is low for the price; no Blu-ray drive.

HP Pavilion dv7t-7000 Quad Edition Review

laptopreviews.com
25 July 2012
  • Conclusion: First impressions can be everything, though sometimes these pre-conceived notions can be thrown out the door when companies try hard enough. Before this review unit showed up, my previous experience with HP was with their 2007-2009 Pavilion laptops with the infamous quality control issues, let alone nVidia’s blunder with GPUs of that era. Those laptops weren’t well-built, they would overheat like crazy, and the overall experience was negative.

Review HP Pavilion dv7-6c07eg Notebook

Notebookcheck
12 March 2012
  • Summary: Refreshed. HP has improved its multimedia laptop, the Pavilion dv7, by adding a graphic card from the new AMD Radeon HD 7000M series. This high-performance desktop replacement (DTR) laptop has a few weaknesses, but its great price-to-performance ratio is guaranteed to entice buyers.
  • Pros: Great program performance, Powerful graphics card, Sturdy aluminium case, Blu-ray optical drive, 2x USB 3.0, Good battery life, Exceptional performance for a fair price - this argument will attract buyers to the Pavilion dv7. The great hardware components and stylish yet sturdy case are also worthy of praise.
  • Cons: Weak display, Slight throttling, Few workmanship flaws, Somewhat loud under load, Unfortunately, the notebook does not use the amazing Full HD display found in the other configuration of this model. Low contrast and unstable viewing angles are the result. In addition, the manufacturer should pay more attention to workmanship flaws such as gaps in the material and parts.

Review HP Pavilion dv7-6b02eg Notebook

Notebookcheck
19 January 2012
  • Summary: Multimedia headquarters. The Pavilion dv7-6b02eg has everything that can be expected from a well-equipped multimedia notebook. In addition to a quad core processor and a top of the range, DirectX 11 graphics card, a solid state drive and a BluRay burner are under the hood. Another highlight is the matt Full HD screen. Is the price of €1300 justified?
  • Pros: Non-glare Full HD screen with good rates, Mostly matt surfaces, High application performance, Great gaming performance, Graphics switching, Solid state drive, BluRay burner, Good looks, 2 USB 3.0 ports, The solid state drive speeds up Windows routine significantly.
  • Cons: High noise development during load, No eSATA, FireWire or ExpressCard, CPU throttling in the stress test, Somewhat spongy keyboard, High weight, It would be nice if the fan would stay more in the background during load.

We put it to the test, to see whether HP has produced a well-rounded package or whether it has tried to save money in the wrong places.
  • Pros: Reasonable battery life, Graphics switching, Smart design, Classy case, Good performance, Fair price, 2x USB 3.0, The classy, well built metal case.
