Review HP Pavilion 17-e054sg Notebook

 

Bargain-buy quad-core. A well-rounded notebook for under 600 Euros (~$815) - that's what the Pavilion 17 offers. A quad-core processor and a dual graphics card supposedly ensure optimal performance. Our review reveals whether this setup really does its...

Refirb HP Pavilion 17-e049wm

 

The computer is a great machine. I got it when it was $439 and it was definitely a great deal, but yeah, if you get past windows 8.1 its a fantastic machine.

The computer came as expected, started fast, and so far hasn't slowed down. I bought this to be a school and casual gaming computer, and I actually got more than I expected in terms of gaming. I play lots of Source games (TF2, GMOD, Portal, etc.), and...

Though it came with windows 8.1 installed already, I'm very unhappy with it. Its a fairly lousy OS, and when I get an extra cash for an external hard drive I'm gonna wipe this drive and install windows 7 so I can have a decent OS again. 8.1 is still...

Laptop is dead

 

Decently fast, was able to handle any game on low graphics, many games higher than that

It is dead. It won't turn on, even with the charger plugged in. I purchased the warranty, so I am using that. If you are dead set on buying this, make sure you get the warranty or you will be out of luck and very angry. Would NOT buy again

Super buy

 

Just received a couple of days ago It came with 1TB HD and 8.1 installed. Amazing value sure glad I waited for this one. Thanks Newegg. Great deal

Fast Processor ; Lots of Storage Space ; Cheap Price ; Good All-Around Performance ; Seems to be a new product

None so far

HP 17-e049wm

 

I am pleased with the laptop especially given the price. It plays casual and older games well. I can even play Mechwarrior online in a pinch if I turn the graphic options all the way down. Most of my "cons" are nit picky. It really is a good laptop. I...

Good price. Roomy hard drive. The integrated graphics are not bad. The screen is large and the higher than normal resolution is nice

No gigabit wired Ethernet. No dedicated microphone in jack. No key combination to disable the touch pad. Very limited BIOS options (I like to tweak a little bit). It seems to run very hot. As other reviewers have mentioned the viewing angles suck

HP 17-e049wm

 

Considering its lightning-fast bootup and its capable processor/graphics card combo, this is a great laptop for the price. Runs most games on mid-high graphics level, but had issues with a console port (Injustice). Possesses any and all ports an...

Good Graphics Card ; Great Hard Drive space ; Respectable RAM

Windows 8 slightly glitchy; disabling some features helps

Very solid and seemingly well built machine. Would recommend to anyone looking for a strong laptop for entertainment and light gaming.

Very smooth running machine this go around. After having to RMA one because of a defective battery, this second one works perfectly so far. Stats are well above average and will play any game i want on strong settings. Quiet running and cool. i...
