HP Pavilion Elite e9240f


The HP Pavilion Elite e9240f is a good combination home PC and multimedia center for under $1000.

Lots of ports. Blu-Ray.

Not expandable. Excessive bloatware.

Good, but not good enough


I liked it for the first week, then realized I needed more power to upgrade to a better graphics card.

Fast processor, nice setup. Good for beginner, not good enough for intermediate to expert

Graphics card, Blu-ray didnt work out of the box. After 10 mins of use it said the raid controller was unplugged. Yet I had not done anything for that to happen
