HP Pavilion Elite H8-1010: Lost in the Mainstream-Desktop Crowd

 

In the crowded realm of mainstream desktops, it often takes an extra bit of panache to stand out. The HP Pavilion Elite H8-1010 ($829 as of October 20, 2011; $699 after instant rebate) provides decent general performance and a roomy hard drive, but...

Decent general performance ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Large amount of RAM

Limited upgradability ; Small port selection

In a category flush with speed demons and value-oriented media machines, HP's latest desktop seems a bit dull.

HP Pavilion Elite h8-1124

 

It comes with quite a bit of pre-installed software, which is surprising for a Best Buy system (we'd rather see a pre-installed e-commerce app like the Best Buy PC app, then install nothing else but the hardware drivers and a few utilities). On the...

Quick quad-core processor. HDMI and DisplayPort. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Some 3D gaming ability

No USB 3.0. Bloatware. Lower powered 300W Power supply limits expansion

The HP Pavilion HPE h8-1124 is a power users machine, but limited expansion and a lot of bloatware hold this desktop back from the highest overall scores.

HP Pavilion Elite h8-1010

 

Access to the interior is simple: Turn one thumbscrew, slide off the side panel, and you're in. Here you'll find 3 available PCI Express (PCIe) x1 slots and one PCIe x16 slot (in which the video card is installed). Both memory slots are populated with...

Reasonably priced. Dedicated graphics with HDMI out. Big hard drive. Wi-Fi enabled

So-so performance. No Blu-ray. Bloatware

The HP Pavilion Elite h8-1010 is a capable Core i5 desktop with a handful of nice features, including wireless networking, a spacious hard drive, and a dedicated, albeit low-end, video card. But there are better performing systems in this price range.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

HP Pavilion Elite h8-1010

 

Cue up the late Rodney Dangerfield: The traditional desktop tower just doesn't get the respect that it used to. Notebook sales have outpaced desktops since at least 2008, and PC makers, hoping to inject renewed interest in non-portable PCs, have...

Speedy enough for mainstream media, productivity tasks ; Expandability options aplenty

No Blu-ray or USB 3.0 ports ; Power supply limits certain upgrade options ; Power button is hard to press

If you aren’t interested in Blu-ray or demanding games, the h8-1010 can serve as a fine family or productivity PC. Note, though: Faster models with better features (and less bloatware) cost just a little more.

HP Pavilion Elite h8-1050

 

The HP Pavilion Elite h8-1050 is a media desktop decked out with all the right components to satisfy power users. Blu-ray, TV tuner, and a powerful hardware tag team made up of an Intel Core i7 processor and AMD discrete graphics card is just the tip...

Intel Core i7 processor and AMD graphics make for a powerful hardware combination on the gaming grid or while working with media. USB 3.0, Blu-ray, and TV Tuner are present. Wi-Fi built-in. Huge 1.5TB hard drive. Included IR remote helps flip through...

Hard drive spins at a slower 5,400rpm than other desktops at this price. Bloatware

For power users in search of a desktop PC that does multimedia content creation (i.e. photos and videos) as well as some mid-range gaming, the HP Pavilion Elite h8-1050 will oblige.

HP Pavilion HPE h8-1240t Desktop PC

 

That phrase sums up my experience with all HP products to date. Of course, their printers are work-horses, built like tanks, reliable, great value. I have no idea who actually builds their computers, but the quality of build is outstanding! Just take...

HP Pavilion HPE h8-1240t Desktop PC

 

I was looking for a desktop computer with near-cutting-edge performance for a reasonable price. I am not a gamer, but I use resource-demanding applications. I wanted a machine that would not be obsolete in three years. I checked many brands on numerous...

HP Pavilion HPE h8-1240t Desktop PC

 

Have had the h8-1240t for about a month and agree with all of the aclades in other reviews. I almost didn't buy this computer because I thought it didn't have USB3 ports or ethernet port located at the back. It wasn't in the specification so I called...
