Okay - I know at least one review has said that Amazon is "price gouging" as compared to HP's site - not even sure if the person bought the computer. This is a popular computer this winter - HP has had it on sale, Office Depot has had it one sale, and even Amazon has had it on sale. When I bought it, it was cheapest on Amazon. I saved $60 over Office Depot.

But that isn't a review - here is a review:


Has Digital and Analog video on board with Nvidea so either monitor type works. A plus nobody is stating: WORKS perfect with two monitors. No need to buy an extra video card! This is huge! If you have never ran two monitors, try it! If you normally do, this is a great addition without taking up any extra PCI ports or buying an extra card. I almost purchased an extra video card when I bought this because I can't live without my two monitors, but to my surprise, dual on board!

Audio - has digital and multi-channel (or single channel option) audio out - no extra charge. My 6 piece speaker system hooked right up - no issues at all!

Windows 7. I know, some people don't think Windows 7 is ready for "prime-time" but what Windows version is ever ready? So far no issues. I am sure a SP 1 will come out soon. But my advice is NOT to get a Vista machine and later upgrade. There are ALWAYS problems when you upgrade IMHO. This is a clean install from a decent OS.

Card reader is a plus for me.

Keyboard has a nice feel - not like the really cheap ones out there. I enjoy typing on it.

QUIET! OMG this computer is so quiet as compared to my last one. My last computer heated my office up so much, this one isn't doing that (of course that can be a bummer in winter time!

Pavilion P6230FAMD Phenom II X4 810 Processor (2.6 GHz, 2MB L2 Cache + 4MB Shared L3 Cache, 4000MHz System Bus
P6210F 2.6 GHz Athlon II 620 Quad

I purchased the 6210F model and reviewed it. (Please see my review here:

To my surprise, however, Amazon is offering the 6230F for $50.00 less than the 6210F despite the fact that even the MOST casual observer will have no difficulty what so ever in determining that the 6230 is a more powerful machine packing better AND MORE POTENT COMPONENTS.

So I decided to test it in person to compare it to the 6210 that I already have. Fortunately, two of the local Costco stores in the Portland-Vancouver area had it in stock, and because they have a 30-day no question asked return policy, I bought one and took it home for a test drive.

All I had to do to obtain a very quick result was run the already bundled performance testing software. The initial result showed the 6210 at 4.6 overall performance while the 6230 produced a 5.5 performance rating. This is no small feat in performance difference. Nor was I surprised at the result; after all the 6230 packed a whole lot more powerful processor, graphics card, memory and a larger hard disk, though this had no effect on the performance rating.

Instead of a review, I'm including an abridged version of a letter I sent to Mr Mark Hurd, the President of Hewlett Packard

Dear Mr. Hurd, On April 27 at 2 PM I received a Pavilion Elite Desktop that was defective and "dead in the box." I've been buying computers since 1992 and can accept this but not what followed. (Repair Order #803.........)

From 6 PM to midnight I talked to people in India whose English was barely intelligible making the process extremely difficult. They had me doing tests over and over and sitting on endless hold in between. This was incompetence. Around midnight I was asked to do a "System Restore?" and told by your Tech he would call back---he never did and I was to find that this is common.

On April 28, convinced that the problem was beyond the abilities of your offshore people and not wanting to go back to people I couldn't understand, who never called me back, and who put me on endless hold; I requested (per your guarantee) someone to make a housecall here in Seattle, which was denied. I tried to access American support to no avail and ended up calling Sales--at least they spoke English. They essentially told me "I was on my own" and I thought of the phrase--"Abandon hope all ye who enter here"

On April 29 I got your Filipino station and repeated the same process for hours. One particularly grating aspect was listening ad nausea to your parroted message about being able to get home service while I languished on endless hold. This is deceptive and a rotten lie. My machine was brand new----a fact that wasn't even noticed by your techs until the third day. After 20 hrs of my personal time had been chewed up, the dead machine was finally pronounced unfit and carted back by FedEx on April 30.
