Desktop PC HP Pavilion Elite HPE-510y review


HP Pavilion Elite HPE-510y  has all the equipment that makes a desktop multimedia solid mid-round: a Blu-ray, Wi-Fi, large hard drive 1.5 To, and a myriad of connectivity options.

Cut from the same fabric as the HP Pavilion Elite HPE-410y,the HPE-510y does nothing to deflect the black square design. The office has a shiny smooth finish: The I / O ports that do not hide behind the doors are in the top of the tower, two USB 2.0 ports and a media card reader that supports xD, MD / CF SD / Mini / MMC / MS / PRO. The top of the HPE-510y a chamber to end his MP3 player and other devices to connect to ports above.
Behind the closed panel on the bottom of the front panel input composite (red, white and yellow), USB 2.0, S-Video and audio inputs, ideal if you want to capture video from an old school VCR or camcorder. Back to the desktop containing the 4 USB 2.0 ports, audio jacks, Ethernet, HDMI, TV tuner, S-video, DVI-I, Composite stereo audio input (red and white), and digital audio input. Needless to say you have a good connection to any projector or TV monitor. I would have liked to see USB 3.0 or eSATA, since these interfaces to help speed the transfer of data between external hard drives. Desktop does not have Wi-Fi feature, often far away from the desktop tower.

Opening the chassis requires a flathead screwdriver and unscrew a single screw. After pressing the metal side panel off, I could see the 4 RAM slots were filled, but it is likely that you will not need anything more than 8 GB is already installed. There are also two PCIe x1 slots open, only one free SATA port (but there are two 3.5 slots to place multiple hard drives), and an open 5.25 "bay for a second optical drive during the pre - installed Blu-ray. PCIe x16 slot is filled with an AMD Radeon HD 6570 graphics card.

300W power supply should be adequate if you choose to fill more space, but if you're thinking of hitting the graphics you see your strength as well. Unless you're an avid downloader and / or files from a Hoarder, 1.5TB, but at a slower 5,400 rpm hard drive would be more than sufficient to maintain the average. However, the transmission speed is often an effect on the overall result. If you are looking for a quicker solution, Cyber ​​Power Gamer's Dragon ($ 1,099 direct, 4.5 stars) 1TB drive 7200 rpm should suffice, but if you're willing to pay a premium for the hard-state solid (SSD) is the best way to optimize your PC.

The HPE-510y comes with an unfortunate amount of bloatware pre-installed on your computer, including 3 eReaders (Zinio Reader4, Kobo and Blio), Snapfish, a Bing eBay Shortcut Bar and Hulu. I am of the mind that if you want this software, you should be able to download it myself, not be imposed on me.

HPE will 510y 2.8 GHz AMD Phenom processor II X6 1055T 8 GB of memory. No price as its competitors in our PCMark Vantage test (6390), the global power of the CPU, or test multimedia-oriented as the handbrake (2:33) video encoding and Photoshop CS5 (4:53) test image filter, mainly the slow rotation 5400 rpm hard drive. Cyber ​​Power Gamer Dragon (8171 PCMark, handbrake 2:09, 4:28 CS5), Velocity Micro (PCMark 8622, 01:34 handbrake, CS5 3:29), and the Gateway FX6840-01E (999 , $ 99 list, 3.5 stars) (PCMark 9069, handbrake 1:58, 3:44 CS5) are significantly better than the HPE-510y, even if they are equipped with the same CPU AMD Phenom II X6 1055T. Our 3D imaging tests, Cinebench R11.5, HPE-510y score was 4.96 same level as its competitors, with the exception of Power Gamer Cyber ​​Dragon, which was significantly higher score of 5.84.

AMD Radeon HD 6570 graphics card has helped HPE-510y gain some ground in our test of 3DMark Vantage (18 792 on the attachment and entry of 1882 at the end), but the Dragon CyberPower Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 is the card graphic defeated, marking the 46 160 entries and 6,616 to the extreme. Our gaming tests, Crysis and Lost Planet 2, were able to show a real world scenario of how the two jobs differ in terms of 3D performance. The HPE-510y scored 59 frames per second (fps) in Crysis (DirectX 10) in the middle and upper 9fps. Compared to the CyberPower 61fps in middle position, the difference is not noticeable, but when the images and textures have been put in place to establish very high, the scores of systems "have begun to diverge significantly. Lost Planet 2 in our DirectX 11 test, the HPE-510y scored a respectable 31fps at medium settings slow 9.3fps high quality, while the half Cyberpower scored 31fps and 82fps high to.

It 'hard to ignore the many connections, the HP Pavilion Elite PC offers HPE-510y, is positioning as a multimedia machine value. However, it is also difficult to ignore the existence of more efficient systems, which are similar deals for the same price. HPE-510y is perfect if you want to import old analog video into a set of 21 centuries, but the systems of choice of the two Editors', the Velocity Micro Gamer Cyberpoer and Dragon, as well as provide an internal expansion, faster, and share characteristics such as USB 3.0 and eSATA, $ 50 or $ 150 more.
