HP Envy Phoenix h9-1420t review: Gaming power in a subtle form


This mainstream gaming machine carries a comforting two-year warranty and provides top-notch, if not best-of-breed, performance and gameplay.

Great performance ; Fast gameplay ; Premium graphics card

Just one multilane PCIe slot ; No GeForce GTX 690 upgrade option ; Pedestrian case design

If you're not dead set on your gaming PC looking as if it had just escaped from a sci-fi movie, and if you’re sure you’ll never want to upgrade to a dual-video-card setup, the HP Envy Phoenix h9-1420T will give you excellent overall performance and...

HP Envy Phoenix h9-1320t


The HP Envy Phoenix h9-1320t ($1,800.89 list, as configured) is a Windows 8-equipped gaming rig that gives gamers a robust and more affordable alternative to pricier custom-built systems from boutique PC manufacturers. It's packed with enough...

Solid performer. Capacious 2TB hard drive. Tool-less chassis. Lots of room for expansion


The HP Envy Phoenix h9-1320t is a powerful ready-made gaming desktop that's worthy of serious consideration for power users and high-end gamers alike thanks to its considerable processing power, room for expansion, and built-in Blu-ray player.

Outstanding gaming performance for the price, Beats Audio delivers luscious sound

No SSD, Cooling fan spins constantly, Sloppy cabling inside the case

Lastly, HP backs the h9-1420t with a two-year parts-and-labor warranty. For a system at this price, we are happy to see HP double down on the industry-standard one-year warranty.

HP Pavilion HPE Phoenix h9t customizable Desktop PC


Extremely fast, large capacity and memory, good video card, 3.0 USB and is a relatively quiet unit. Still has a slight fan noise which is louder than my previous Pavillion 8100. This unit comes with a liquid cooling system but still needs fan for 600W...

HP Pavilion HPE Phoenix h9t customizable Desktop PC


I did a lot of research and with the discounts, etc, I couldn't have built my own computer for less, plus it came with a 2 year warranty. I've had the computer for about a month and I have had no issues. Runs really fast and graphics are sharp and quick.

HP Pavilion HPE Phoenix h9t customizable Desktop PC


Very fast. Too bad my printer and scanner are too old to be compatible with this system. I am enjoying learning all the ins and outs of windows 7.
