HP Pavilion Elite HPE-235f

 

Desktops in the mainstream PC category are usually designed to meet general home and business computing needs. While lacking the raw muscle of systems in the performance PC category, they deliver strong performance without breaking the bank, and...

Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi ; Blu-ray player

Limited upgradablity

You won't find anything too exciting here, but HP's Pavilion Elite HPE-235f delivers good performance and strong media functionality, at a great price.

HP Pavilion Elite HPE-235f Review

 

HP's Pavilion Elite HPE-235f marks the introduction of AMD's affordable six-core processor into their premium Elite lineup.

Sturdy case and six-core CPU ; Low power draw, quiet ; Wireless-N networking

Fingerprint magnet ; Poor cable management ; Poor upgrade potential

The HP Pavilion Elite HPE-235F is a good choice if you're looking for a versatile, middle-of-the-road system. The Blu-ray drive, optical digital audio, and quiet fans make it a great choice for media enthusiasts, while the ATI HD5570 makes it an...

This $979 Blu-ray-capable PC is well-equipped for everyday tasks and older games. It's a good six-core, midrange machine, but other PCs at this price do perform better.

Blu-ray player/DVD±RW combo drive, Decent upgrade potential, Wi-Fi included

Mixed performance versus similarly priced PCs, Graphics card not great for 3D gaming, Lots of bloatware, subsidized links

Spectacular X6 multi-core performance in video editing

 

I've had this machine for about six weeks and use it almost exclusively for video work. It is consistently encoding three videos at a time, capturing video, and surfing the web and still not hitting 100% CPU. VERY impressed with the X6. Purchased from...

Video editing/encoding is fantastic. Can seriously multi-task on this machine. Plenty of USB ports, firewire, Blu Ray player, and multi card reader all come in handy

HUGE Con: 5400 RPM WD Green drive. Come on....it's a six core machine with 1GB video card.....you want a performance hard drive ; HP Bloatware, no restore DVD's....the usual HP issues like the CD/DVD drive getting caught on the door sometimes

ABYSMAL Customer Service.

 

DO NOT BUY HP. I received this product from newegg.com on 11/9/10. There was nothing displaying on my monitor. Tried several configurations of monitor/cord/port; still nothing. I got on HP chat and the CSR determined that the CPU was fried (a BRAND NEW...

I couldn't tell you, as it's been 12 days and several phone calls and a shipment and return for repairs and it's still not fixed

Everything that has to do with HP customer service

Phenomenal Phenom

 

My first real exposure to Win 7 - seems reasonable. System packs some punch. I am not a gamer - I was wanting the power more for rendering etc. System is super quiet. Wish I could have purchased from the Egg - sorry guys. Other reviewer is mistaken -...

Well priced powerhouse which has been flawless out of the box. Very fast/powerful. Not sure many could appreciate the .2 or .4ghz speed between this and the current top of the line Phenoms. 8gb ram - more than most could use ; Surprisingly little bloat...

HD is slow relative to the rest of the system. Easily upgraded to a 7200 or better drive. Thus far the supplied 5400 is still noticeably faster than my old system but sure that will change as it fills

This thing is fast, did I say fast? What a delight Windows 7 is compared to XP.

Great for non-techies that want good performance

 

This machine is perfect for someone that wants a fairly powerful desktop for a good price, without the hassels of building your own computer. -Likely won't be able to build your own desktop that comes with all that this computer does for the same price...

8GB of RAM (Which can be increased up to 24GB) ; Blue Ray Drive ; Cost at time of purchase less than HP site and in a great combo with a 27" 1080p monitor ; Great power for a pre-made machine ; Didn't come with lots of junk software ; Incredibly silent...

Graphics card could be better, but for what I am doing it is adequate ; 300W power supply means you are pretty limited in terms of upgrades. Changing the power supply will be difficult as there isn't a whole lot of free space inside the case
