Review: HP Envy 17 3D (Early 2012)

 

Elegant entertainment machine. HP has just updated its premium notebook lineup by reintroducing the 15.6-inch Envy 15 in an all-new design, and the 17.3-inch Envy 17 has been given the same makeover. The latter is also available in a 3D edition, which...

Attractive design, High overall performance, Good display, Excellent sound quality, Comparatively thin and lightweight, Good selection of ports, The new design is very appealing. A combination of good overall performance and excellent workmanship makes...

Practically never silent, GPU barely sufficient for stereoscopic 3D gaming, Lid prone to smudges, Although the Radeon HD 7690M does a good job within the temperature constraints of this comparatively slim notebook, a speedier GPU would have been...

HP’s 3-D Laptop: One More D, 300 More Dollars

 

If you thought 3-D was a tough sell for the living room, now imagine if you had to lug the technology around with you. That, in fact, is the big sell of the HP Envy 17 3D, and any other 3D-equipped laptop: it gives you the world of three dimensions on...

HP Envy 17 3D

 

I took a close look at HP's Envy 17 last September and found a lot to like, plus a few issues that bugged me. So it goes with most products--there's no perfect laptop. Now HP's refreshing the Envy 17, adding a new display and stereoscopic 3D capability.

Audio quality among the best in laptops ; Superb LCD display; excellent 3D Blu-ray visuals

3D gaming is frustrating and often doesn't work ; Short battery life

HP's Envy 17 3D offers robust 3D Blu-ray, but limited 3D gaming. While it's a solid addition to HP's line, problems with 3D gaming and battery life are a concern.

HP ENVY 17 3D Review

 

Welcome to a review of the biggest fattest HP 3D desktop replacement notebook you'll ever come across. Not that it's the biggest that'll ever be made, but when you've got this thing sitting on your desk, you'll wonder how you ever got along without...

The display is bright, the display is sharp, and the display is HUGE. This is a desktop replacement without a doubt, and you'll never go back to a tower again if this monster is slid under your nose (that's a bit presumptuous, I know you love building...

HP Envy 17 3D Review

 

The Envy 17 3D is not cheap, but for $1,649 you get a premium design, quad-core power, solid gaming performance, Blu-ray, and a bright 1080p display. The 3D experience isn't as robust or as seamless as laptops powered by Nvidia's 3D Vision technology,...

Bright, crisp screen, Good 3D performance, Stylish design, Comfortable, backlit keyboard, Strong graphics performance, Great sound quality

Very short battery life, Parts of notebook get quite hot, Too many steps to start 3D games, Can't play 3D content on TVs

HP Envy 17 3D (17-1190N)

 

The full sized chiclet-style keyboard is nice, and benefits from the integrated numeric pad. The keys have a firm response and smooth motion. Even better, the keyboard comes standard with backlight that vastly improves keyboard usability in dark...

A gorgeous high-definition 3D display. Blu-ray. Beats Audio provides good bass. Bundled 3D glasses fit over prescription glasses

Pricey compared to its 2D peers. Limited 3D content. Still requires special glasses

From movies to gaming, the HP Envy 17 3D should please 3D enthusiasts with its polished integration of 3D technology into an already impressive media center laptop. Those content with two dimensions may want to hold off, but for those who want more...

HP Envy 17 3D 17-2000ee

 

The HP sports a full QWERTY keyboard along with backlit keys for working in low-light conditions

Given its positioning its disappointing that the Envy lacks gaming grunt. If gaming isn’t a concern however, you’ll find the Envy 17 a capable app machine and an immersive 3D entertainer.

HP Envy 17 3D Review

 

HP's flagship notebook brings power in style.

Simple and pleasant design, Powerful in both computing and games, 1080p 3D LED screen, Full sized backlit keyboard, Beats audio speakers are great

Mouse pad doesn't register all gestures, Supplied GPU is a bit weak for games in 3D at 1080p

Accompanying all of this hardware are a number of ports, namely VGA, HDMI, LAN (10/100/1000), DisplayPort, eSATA, Audio ports, two USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port. The final piece of the puzzle is the Bluray reader & DVD writer combo drive. The ‘beats...

HP Envy 17 3D Review

 

High-end gaming notebooks are a rare breed with few takers. If you are one such person, the HP Envy 3D 17 is a good package - strong graphics, Blu-ray playback and a stereoscopic 3D display with bundled glasses. It's expensive, but a good buy for the...

Well built and looks good despite its bulk, Good components, and a fast graphic solution in the Radeon HD 5850, 3D display, with bundled glasses, Good value for money if you're up to spending close to a lakh on a laptop

Not for everyone with its high-spec components, Heavy and bulky - not exactly something you want to lug around, The HD 5850 can get very hot
