HP Pavilion md5880n


Good image detail and color accuracy. Best-sounding TV speakers I've heard to date. All A/V connections are accessible from the front of the TV. User-upgradeable firmware. Accepts 1080p digital input.

The HP Pavilion md5880n is an impressive 1080p rear-projection HDTV that delivers a detailed picture wrapped in a stylish and functional design.

When thinking about big-screen TVs, the name Hewlett-Packard usually doesn't come to mind. But based on our tests of the company's 58-inch MD5880n DLP set, maybe that perception should change.

HP Pavilion md5880n Media Server Reviewed


HP makes many of the world's computer products. It would stand to reason that if there were going to make a foray into the home theater world it would be through the video server or home theater PC market. Which is precisely what they did. And we...

HP md5880n 1080p HDTV


But some companies, while new to the video display business, are household names. HP—the now-preferred moniker for the company formerly better known as Hewlett Packard (sort of like KFC without the crispy coating)—is one of the market leaders in...

HP md5880n 1080p HDTV


These days, you can't tell the players in television manufacturing without a scorecard. At every CES, including this year's, new names sprout like kudzu. Some are strange and unfamiliar. Others are old standards, but under new ownership. Many will be...
