HP Pavilion HPE Phoenix h9z

 

"Mass-market gaming desktop" doesn't have to mean lackluster performance and uncompetitive pricing. Too bad Hewlett-Packard seems to have forgotten. Both slower and more expensive than its competition, the $1,049 HP Pavilion HPE Phoenix h9z desktop is...

HP's new Pavilion HPE Phoenix h9z can at least boast decent expandability and a competitive set of connectivity options.

HP's latest attempt at a gaming PC fails due to its back-of-the-pack performance compared with other gaming desktops in this price range.

Slower than all of its competition, the HP Pavilion HPE Phoenix h90z is impossible to recommend.

Consumer review by:

"A really decent gaming rig for HP."

 

Not sure why CNET would choose to review the version with the slower AMD processor. There are four versions of the HP Phoenix currently available, and the three others have fantastic Intel CPUs which are blazing fast (i7 2600/3820/3960). I would never...

-Fast processor choices (excluding the one they reviewed here of course)

-Weak selection of graphics cards

Consumer review by:

"With upgraded graphics it would be a decent system."

 

If the system was cheaper it would be worth getting and upgrading the graphics. But for the high price you should't have to.

Pretty Decent CPU for gaming.

To bad they went with AMD's entry level gpu. That is what is really keeping this system from being a decent gaming machine.

Consumer review by:

"Review based on cheapest version of this system"

 

Going with any firm's bottom of the line CPU and GPU choices pretty much make for a system not worth buying. By the time you go for a better CPU and GPU, even if not top of the line, you will get much better performance.

I always find it strange that computer makers offer expensive computers with badly underperforming components. It just makes bad reviews a lot easier to come by.

Consumer review by:

"Overpriced and low-tech"

 

Seriously? I can custom build a Gamer PC with quality parts for less than $700.

Nothing...

Low tech and over priced...

So far the Phoenix h9z desktop has exceeded my expectations. I gave performance an objective four-star rating only because I have used the pc for only one month. As a photographer, I needed a workhorse pc that would handle a storage and editing...

PC performance was just OK considering 8 processors being able to move data.
