HP Media Center TV m7690y


The ability to capture and enjoy media is at the heart of the Hewlett-Packard Media Center TV m7690y. This $1000 system (as of November 6, 2006) runs Windows XP Media Center Edition and includes a TV tuner for recording television shows. Our test...

Includes TV tuner; 19-inch LCD screen ; DVD drive can write labels to discs

No room for extra internal hard drive

Media-centric system performed very well for a value PC; with its TV tuner, it could replace your living-room DVR.

HP Media Center TV m7690y


As a computer repair owner, I have seen more HP/Compaq computers than other computers. Tech support from them is lousy, they're rude at times, and although they claim to be americans, they cannot understand english most of the time. Why buy this junk?


poor support, hard to find updated drivers, rude support technicians, no backup cd's for drivers and windows offered at time of purchase

HP Media Center TV m7690y


I like this computer and it runs fast with great graphics and sound hooked up to Altec Lansing speakers with a subwoofer. I like the setup int he front of the ocmputer wiht the 15-1 memory card reader and USB 2.0 port available ont he front besides...

It worked well the first nine months i had it and it was fun to use,the TVtuner is excellent along iwht the Sound Blaster audio card and an nvidia GeForce7600GS512MB video card plus the personal media hard drive

The repair poeple are very careless about the repairs. After flashing the BIOS as recommended for an upgrade the computer froze and after changing out to mobos, the last time they sent it back wiht only @GB memory even though I sent it in with 4~!!1

HP Media Center TV m7690y


Customized with 2GB of RAM and nvidia 7500 LE graphics provides an adequate graphics package. The other features integrate nicely with TV tuner, DVD +/-RW. RAM. Package options add value with 19" LCD Flat panel and all-in-one printer.

HP provides an excellent Motherboard and layout in a mini desktop tower form factor

Customizable options with low end graphics selection does not provide an adequate overall performance
