An outstanding, misunderstood gem with fixable flaws

Quality Buyer, Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this computer since December 2009 and can honestly say I have only had one problem with it that was not quickly remedied with a driver update or one clean OS reinstall, neither of which should be considered even "eventful" for a computer this powerful with technology that was far from mature when it was manufactured.

It's what I wanted, and as such is what I bought.

  • Summary: DV8 is great.Just make sure wich one you are getting.1000,1100,or 1200. Watch to make sure if you are looking for Bluetooth, or TV tuner that it's actually listed as a feature.All do not have that.All in all, if you are looking for a DV8 you already know what it is.Which is the reason you are looking for it.If you do not, a DV-7 would probably serve you better.DV-8 is for those looking for a DV-8, none other....

Awesome Desktop replacement, but not a gaming machine.

  • Summary: If you want a awesome large screen laptop for school, work, or multimedia, this is an awesome machine. I bought one 2 Christmas's ago and am typing this review on it now. I bought it for $1400 with the blu-ray and i7 proc with some free upgrades at the HP online store. I use it almost every day and it's been working very well. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that it has a heating problem, so I can't recommend this machines for gamers.

Don't be put off by bad reviews....

A. Sillick, Amazon
16 January 2010
  • Summary: ...I nearly was and started to wonder about Windows 7 compatability etc. All the software I have either works 'out of the box' or with a little bit of searching, available from the software vendor's website. This is a great laptop - not particularly portable but then an 18.4" laptop is not really expected to be.

Very Good Overall

Ajbo, Amazon
7 January 2010
  • Summary: I thought this laptop serves well for people who want something in terms of portability that is between a laptop and a desktop. The screen does have excellent resolution and viewing of DVDs / online tv is great. In fact, there don't seem to be many laptops that compare in terms of screen size which are a similar price. I agree that it is great, but also over priced.

Niveau sonore

Jean-Marc111, Ciao
14 October 2009
  • Summary: @ jckoller1, As-tu prêté attention au niveau sonore de l'ordinateur en ordre de marche ? Est-ce un ordinateur silencieux ou ronflant, vues ses données techniques ? Car je serais intéressé par un tel produit mais je n'aimerais pas avoir un modèle bruyant. Pourquoi faut-il mettre 120 mots minimum si je n'ai rien à rajouter ?
  • Pros: performances
  • Cons: je n'en sais rien

  • Summary: IL MONDO DEI PORTATILI oramai i portatili stanno spopolando le nostre case! vengono utilizzati dappertutto, a scuola, in ufficio, a lavoro! sono utilissimi in tutti i campi! si evolvono ogni giorno di piu, diventando sempre piu potenti e pieni di risorse! ecco che passo a presentarvi questo modello dell'HP Pavillon, che a mio parere è uno dei migliori in circolazione! con un design semplice, ma allo stesso tempo moderno! la Ram è ad alti livello con i suoi 1024 mega!
