HP Pavilion p6330f


Wrapped in the stock HP chassis, the HP Pavilion p6330f ($599, as of April 20, 2010) doesn't immediately stand out from the crowd of budget PCs. But it punches things up with stellar performance, matching that of our current category favorite, the...

Generous storage capacity ; Strong performance for its category

Just one DVI port and no HDMI port

The performance is strong and the price is right, but a dearth of advanced connectivity options disappoints.

HP Pavilion p6330f


The p6330f delivers solid application and multimedia performance, as well as upgrade potential aplenty. Just don't aim to game: Its integrated graphics fall far short for 3D gaming.

Decent application, multimedia performance for price; room for upgrades

Poor 3D-graphics performance; laden with trial software, subsidized links

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

HP Pavilion P6330F(AY022AA#ABA) Intel Core i3 530(2.93GHz) 6GB DDR3 1TB Intel GMA HD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit


dont play video games, they rot your brains. but if you did want to play video games and rot your brains, youll want to throw a video card in it. if you want a big beefy video card, youll need to upgrade power supply too.

Good little machine, gets you in the door cheap, then upgrade it till the doors fall off. Not everyone can afford a juiced out machine. I got this machine for Adobe After Effects, and Premier Pro. It was a huge upgrade over a computer that was about 5...

dont even think about overclocking this machine. its a business machine

more than satisfied


Having this unit for more than 2 months now. I really can say this is a heck of a nice computer. no any issue so far and I installed a set of free antivirus/antispyware packages available for free on-line and all of them work fine with this computer....

I might upgrade the vcard later but will need to upgard the power supply as well, because it's only 300W

No issue at all!! love it


HP provides excellent warranty service and Newegg's been well known at its customer service, so, will definitely recommond to buy this unit through Newegg, especially my Dad... shouldn't be any risk.

my Dad bought this HP desktop from while it's running promotion at $629.99. We thought that was super good deal plus we love the speed, the spec and the overall performance, especially it's HP...obviously our deal wasn't the best deal. He should...

This unit is obviously not design for gaming, and no HDMI port... Not the deal breaker because he doesn't really play game

Update of supposed hard drive problem


I have read negative reviews about this machine before which are not on here anymore due to repricing machine I guess. Anyway, what I kept reading was that everyone was told it was a hard drive issue (because to be fair, the diagnostic message points...

Same as before except I asked newegg for a replacement machine this time instead of trying to get HP support to fix it. So far, this Cons and Other Thoughts section for more details

Ok, to follow up on my previous review, I replaced the hard drive as per HP instructions and their enclosed hard drive, loaded W7 from recovery disks supplied by HP, and the machine ran 1.5 HOURS before blue screen occured. Called newegg this time and...

Excellent Computer


Becides that it's great at playing videos. Obviously not meant for gaming, I'm not a gamer so it doesn't bother me. But you can always add a full height video card if you wanted.

Excellent computer with very good specs at a somewhat budget price. Design is nice as well even though it's pretty much unchanged from last year

None so far. Wish it was smaller? I knew it was a mid-case anyway and it's actually a decent size for all the extra upgrade options ; And people who blame a hard drive failure on HP and down rank a great PC because "The computer failed". It's a hard...

Great computer


Newegg saved me! I purchased a Gateway from newegg in July, it had an assortment of problems --all after the first 30 days. Gateway support was debatable at best and their repair center a joke! The computer came back with the same problem so I called...

I love this computer, delivery came quickly from newegg, set up was quick and easy right out of the box. I especially like how quickly the machine starts. I have had the computer 2 months and have had no problems with the computer

The only reason I gave it 4 eggs, was Windows 7. It was difficult and time consuming to set up existing hardware and programs. The worst was my HP printer-after 3 hours of trying different "fixes" they finally had me download a driver for a different...

Hard drive out after 1.5 weeks


Called HP and they gave me 2 options...1) send in the entire box and have it repaired and not get the computer back for 2 weeks...2) take out the bad hard drive myself, they will send a blank new hard drive on the way to me, install that one in the...

Quiet, fast, Windows 7 OK but I prefer XP, quick shipment

Windows partition part of Hard Drive (D:) corrupted within 1.5 weeks. Had one major crash about 3 days before that. Outlook 2000 and Microsoft PhotoIt 2002 don't work under Windows 7
