HP Envy 17 3D

 

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.

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.

Review: HP Envy 17 3D

 

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,...

Three dimensions, people! Can you dig it? Backlit keyboard. Impressive “Beats” audio system. Dazzling, super-bright display. Includes Adobe Photoshop and Elements combo

3-D experience is gimmicky, weak and already boring. Loud, grinding fan drowns out those awesome speakers when laptop heats up. There’s just no excuse for a computer this big to have arrow keys this pathetically small

HP Envy 17 3D review: HP Envy 17 3D

 

HP Envy 17 3D

Slim, attractive design; full HD 1080p display; includes active-shutter 3D glasses.

Clunky 3D software; using 3D kills video game frame rates.

HP's upscale-feeling Envy 17 3D offers great hardware at a decent price, but its 3D implementation isn't as good as that of laptops with Nvidia's 3D Vision.

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 (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...

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 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-2001xx - Your Personal 3D Movie Machine

 

If the idea of having your own full HD, Blu-ray, 3D movie machine sounds appealing, HP's Envy 17 3D might be just the ticket. The top of the line premium notebook also has a built in subwoofer, Beats audio, and has just been updated with a new, faster...

Full aluminum construction with minimalist design ; Excellent screen ; Great audio

Graphics engine bottlenecks performance

The HP Envy 17 3D is a notebook with a lot going for it. We love the clean, minimalist design and full aluminum construction with its subtle floral dot matrix pattern that keeps the notebook interesting without being gaudy or attracting too many...

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.
