1 out of 5 eggshp elite desktop e9180f

Pros: Very fast when it isn't freezing

Cons: This pc is part of a class action suit against HP for its defective motherboard which causes freezes and BSOD. Somedays it will function fine and work without freezes. Other days, right after a boot up, it will freeze a couple of time in a row.

Other Thoughts: I called HP after I received the class action suit letter 3 weeks ago (June 2011) . Called HP, they sent me a replacement motherboard & a HP tech guy installed it only to find that it too was bad. They sent me another one, it too was bad. That is 2 replacements both defective. Each time the tech put back the orig. board. I am now waiting for a 3rd brd. Waiting to see if this solves it.

1 out of 5 eggsWould have loved to try this tv but...

Pros: Looks really good on Newegg's website!
Price!
Did I tell you how good it looks when you're looking at it on the internet!

Cons: Trying to order it...I placed my order for this tv, and new egg took my money. They sent me a tracking number, and told me it should be delivered on the 16th.

16th is here, and I check the tracking info...It says billing info recieved, and that's it, no updates for the past 4 days.

I call New egg and they tell me that they lost the package somewhere between them and UPS. I could request a replacement or refund...BUT I wouldn't get either one until after the claim was processed...5 days!!

Other Thoughts: Perspective from my shoes~

I order a tv and a computer ($1700), Day 1
I pay for order, Day 2
I wait for order to be delivered, Day 3-4
I check UPS tracking info, they show no info on the order

I call newegg and they tell me it's going to be 5 days before a replacement order will be shiped..

Factor in shipping time for the replacement order and total time for this order to get to me is 12 days!!!

4 out of 5 eggsinexpensive power

Pros: 9 gigs of RAM, Quad Core i7

Cons: Slow start up, buggy Vista;

Other Thoughts: I was looking for the most for the least ammout of money and I got what I paid for.
I really thought having the latest quad core (i7) and 9 gigs of RAM with a gig for video would be a lot more powerful than it is.
Admittedly I cut my DVD burning time in half and apps open quick, but things like file transfer takes twice as long as with XP duo core.
I do get the freeze ups that other buyers are talking about, but it only happens every couple of days and that used to happen with XP too so I'm used to dealing with that.
I've been reading about motherboard problems with this unit too so buyer beware.
Mine seems to be usable, so rather than fight with HP I'll keep it and love it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy!

Pros: Performance is top notch, I would have been hard pressed to build my own with the features of this one, while trying to match the price. Since 99+% of my gaming is on 2 PS3s and an XBox360, I did not need to spend more on a faster i7 or hotter video card. 9GB of RAM is a nice fit as I should never have to upgrade the memory. Free Win7 upgrade will top this off nicely. I can live with 64 bit Vista until then. Even with Vista installed, I have had zero BSODs so far.

Runs quiet and has small footprint.

Cons: As another reviewer mentioned - this unit is so full that I could not move my TV card from the unit this replaced as the video card is too big to allow it. Will need to go external so it is a small price to pay. Inconvenient, but not a show-stopper.

Other Thoughts: Having early retired from a large company's IT dep't several years ago, I found that HP has come a long way in becoming the "best bang for the buck" desktop PC company these days.

I used to manage the corporate leasing agreement with HP several years ago, and was truly "uninispired" by their Vectra PCs that I had to lease.

Over the last five years though, they have always had an "out of the box" model ready to fill my needs. I needed a good PC for my wife and found a Compaq to fit her needs without hurting my wallet. I needed a good PC for my garage and found a Compaq unit for under $300 that works fine. (Memory & video upgrades came out of my "spare parts" or Newegg's inexpensive RAM pricing.

I expect to get at least 4 years out of this new Pavilion without replacing parts, adding just a TV card. (That's if I don't have the hardware issues that some other reviewers have had.)

I don't mean to sound like an HP commercial, but they've really fit my needs for the last 4-

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance and value

Pros: Very high performance at very low cost; sleek design; sufficient cooling and low noise. Uses name-brand parts (Western Digital, Samsung, etc). Ubuntu 9.04 runs just fine on it, and you can even use Vista's partition shrinker to install other OS'es without having to reformat. Out-of-box setup is very straightforward, and HP includes surprisingly little bloat which is all easily removed.

Cons: Limited expandability: only four internal SATA (and two eSATA), two 3.5" bays, two 5.25" bays. Has two x16 PCIe slots, but only one 1x and no legacy slots/ports to speak of. OpenSolaris 2009.06 doesn't work on it.

Other Thoughts: Apparently an earlier revision of the motherboard (v1.03) had a lot of issues with freezing/blue screens. Mine is a v1.04 board (ordered September 5, 2009) and I have had absolutely no problems at all.

1 out of 5 eggs3 Stikes! You're Out

Pros: Nice configuraton for the money.

Cons: BUYING ONE OF THESE IS A REAL GAMBLE AT BEST!!!
1st unit BSOD 1st day - RMA to NE. Replacement unit locked up, froze randomly. Sent to HP for repair who gave me a 100% gaurantee they would fix it. Returned unit froze within the first hour of use after fresh install unconnected to network. Configured just as they sent it to me - SAME PROBLEM!!! HP support forum is now over 65 pages of similar complaints.

Other Thoughts: One of the HP forum members claims to have been in contact with HP's motherboard mfgr. - Pegatron who he claims they have confirmed in their labs that these motherboards are defective. It is very likely that even if you get a unit out of the box that functions correctly to start - it may not have the lifespan we should be able to expect. Good luck if you buy an HP Core i7 - one month now and still not able to use the unit with confidence. I'll be wasting my day tomorrow with HP Support again.

2 out of 5 eggsVery fast between freeze-ups

Pros: Love the speed, it runs very fast for the mundane tasks of opening programs or surfing. Great price for the features. Runs warm, especially the graphics card, but well within specs.

Cons: Freezes up coming out of hibernation, EVERY TIME! Multiple BSOD errors, too. Can't keep it running long enough to download updates.

Other Thoughts: HP doesn't appear to have a handle on these problems yet. Forums suggest others haven't had luck with sending back for repair, either. Will update if situation changes.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Machine

Pros: This Computer is great. I have read many mixed reviews, and was hesitant at first to make the purchase. I'm extremely pleased with this machine thus far. It can handle everything you throw at it and is very fast at performing tasks. It's got a nice mid to low-high range graphics card that can handle just about anything. Very good for gaming and video editing. If you need a monster machine this thing can do it all.

Cons: Still Looking for it.

Other Thoughts: Could have supplied a little bigger PSU for the amount of things in this computer. Really needs a 600-800 watt to run with low temps. Other than that great buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Computer

Pros: Very fast, very quiet, awesome features! The built-in blu-ray player is awesome, works very well. Video card is amazing. I have dual 23" 1080P monitors connected and the card runs them no problem. The 9GB of RAM and the fast processor makes everything I do happen VERY fast. It also allows me to have LOTS of stuff open and running without noticing ANY slowness. Photoshop opens and runs way faster than I've ever seen. Everything from opening a web browser to anything in Office07 opens in a blink of an eye.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: All the pre-installed HP garbage is frustrating and not needed, but you get that no matter what brand you buy. This machine is fast, stays cool, and is whisper quiet. In my opinion its an extreme deal for what you get.
