HP Pavilion Elite M9000 series Desktop PC

 

Laptops might be putting down the sales of desktops by a factor of five, but it did not put off HP from announcing it's yet another family friendly PC. Hewlett Packard (HP) as a manufacturer of computer products, brought a new Desktop PC into the...

HP Pavilion Elite m9040n review: HP Pavilion Elite m9040n

 

HP Pavilion Elite m9040n

Updated design; fast, digital-media-oriented configuration; integrated IR receiver and wireless networking adapter eliminates external clutter.

No Bluetooth; RF receiver for wireless mouse and keyboard still external; 802.11b/g wireless, not draft N; overkill on external hard-drive bays.

HP's new digital-media-oriented Pavilion Elite m9040n is fast, loaded with features, and its new looks and newly integrated receivers improve its profile. Our main issue is the redundant bays for two of HP's proprietary external hard drives. If you can...

HP Pavilion Elite M9040n PC

 

At some point, you'll find that your old desktop PC is just too damn slow to handle multimedia tasks effectively. (Hint: When you're resizing pictures, ripping MP3s, or transcoding videos from you camcorder for uploading to YouTube, you'll become much...

Media drive bays. Quad-core performance. Nice price. Wireless keyboard and mouse. TV tuner. Integrated IR sensor with support for IR blasters. Easy Backup button. Multimedia enthusiast improvements, including cable management and rubberized top panel....

HD-DVD/Blu-ray drive currently unavailable. Dual media drive bays can be confusing. Internal wiring is cramped and nest-like. Bloatware. Internet security is for only a 60-day subscription

In features and performance, the HP Pavilion Elite m9040n is worthy of its "Elite" moniker, yet it's much more populist in price.

HP Pavilion Elite m9090a

 

The Pavilion m9090a is a media power station -- but really needs a better TV tuner, and perhaps the option to upgrade to a more serious video card -- then it could truly be called Elite.

Combo HD DVD/Blu-ray player ; Data/transfer bay on top ; HDMI ; Composite/S-Video/RCA audio in ; One touch backup

Single TV tuner means you can't record one show and watch another ; Analog video inputs have no acceleration ; DVD/HD software needs some attention ; Messy internals

HP Pavilion Elite m9040n

 

Here at TechReviewSource we have always been fond of HP's Pavilion Media Center PC's because of their reliability and superb performance and design that is unmatched by any other PC maker out there. The new HP Pavilion Elite m9040n is certainly no...

Integrated WiFi and remote receiver ; Tons of multimedia features ; Great design and look ; Quad-core CPU ; CableCARD compatible TV tuner

External receiver for mouse/keyboard ; No HD DVD or Blu-Ray drive ; Cramped interior ; Lots of bloatware pre-installed

HP Pavilion M9060N(GN584AA) Core 2 Quad Q6600(2.40GHz) 3GB DDR2 640GB NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT Windows Vista Home Premium

 

hp comes through again... solid performance with a great price

great overall rig with lots of media center potential... i converted it into a gaming comp with an 8800gtx, pci exaust fan(got hot in there), new 550w power supply, and vista ultimate (for 64bit app)

included blu ray, hd dvd software is pathetic... i couldnt get it to work and upgraded to power dvd (works great but costs an extra $100)... some pesky trial software was annoying... and if your like me and want to turn it into a gaming rig then you...

A great media center computer. Photo shop CS3 runs fine but has less memory available than my old 2gig computer

sony vegas pro will not load on this computer spent 3 nights with hp on this problem. Will give this computer to a kid and build a usable xp quad core. would not buy again

Amazing Gaming Machine

 

This PC is a beast. It performs amazing for under $1500.00. All you need to do is upgrade the PSU and get a 8800gt.

I purchased this PC from Office Depot over a month ago. I recently upgraded (from Newegg) to a new Antec 500 watt PSU and a EVGA 8800gt 512mb card. I am utterly amazed at the power this PC has now. Stock 3dMark 06 ran at 2022, now it is at 12122!!...

The interior of the case is not neat at all. They did not plan it out very well. The two HP external HD slots take up a lot of room. To fit the 8800 in you do need to spend at least an hour in your case reorganizing the wiring
