HP Pavilion Elite h8xt

 

We've already covered Hewlett-Packard's updated Pavilion and Pavilion Slimline designs, but the new Pavilion Elite brings the most dramatic changes of all to HP's refreshed desktops. Adopting angular design accents and a striking red highlight LED on...

The HP Pavilion Elite h8xt offers an edgier design than we're used to from mainstream desktop vendors, along with HP's unique Beats Audio software, and a fair asking price for its do-it-all features.

You can get better gaming performance for the dollar from boutique PC vendors, and upgrading or adding hard drives to this system will be frustrating.

We'd recommend the HP Pavilion Elite h8xt to anyone in the market for a well-rounded, higher-end desktop, and for headphone users especially; the included Beats Audio software will provide a marginal boost to audio output.

The HP Pavilion Elite h8xt is a mid-line desktop that offers some kick thanks to the quad-core Intel i7 CPU and 8GB of RAM, but it also has a sleek design that's sure to please. Thanks to its not so high price tag, this HP is a fair buy for users that...

"Fast, quiet, easy to get up and running"

 

Recommend it. Prior to this purchhse, had bought Dells for the past 15 years. Decided to switch based on better price for comparable specs and good reputation of HP. Wifi performs well with my 802.11n router. Useful to get Belkin XP/Vista to Windows7...

Worked well right out of box. Have had for 30 days with no issues.

Wish there were a more USB ports, but not a big deal since am using an external hub.

Consumer review by:

"This Machine Rips"

 

The h8xt is a very fast computer and everything works as advertised. Probably the easiest set up I've done in years. It helped that it's networked to another windows 7 machine running an i7 processor too. I chose a mid-level graphics card, 460w power...

Fast, lots of graphics card options, USB 3.0 ports

Too much bloatware.

"Worked for 17 days. Terrible machine & cust.service."

 

Customized this with great graphics, 8G of RAM, i7 quad processor, 1.5T hard drive. It worked for 17 days. Endless calls to HP customer service - very polite, but when they say "I have to research that. I'll call you back within 2 hours." you know that...

looks good; delivered fast. very fast games for 17 days.

everything else. piece of junk.
