HP Pavilion Elite e9240f


When we hear a product described as middle-of-the-road we tend to see it in a negative light, but the HP Pavilion Elite e9240f is in the middle and at just $950 that is a very good thing. On one side of this "road" you will find the gaming PC...

Lots of ports. Blu-Ray

Not expandable. Excessive bloatware

The HP Pavilion Elite e9240f is a good combination home PC, gaming rig, and multimedia center for under $1000.

Good, but not good enough


I liked it for the first week, then realized I needed more power to upgrade to a better graphics card.

Fast processor, nice setup. Good for beginner, not good enough for intermediate to expert

Graphics card, Blu-ray didnt work out of the box. After 10 mins of use it said the raid controller was unplugged. Yet I had not done anything for that to happen
