Customer ratings and reviews for HP ENVY Phoenix 810-170st Desktop PC

Rated 5 out of 5 by very good Easy to use,very good features. Widows 8.1 works great.I can hear the fans running but not loud. I ordered it with a solid state hard drive makes it start up very fast.I would recommend this computer it is fast. April 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Product I would recommend this product to anyone, but it's cost is high as well as the terrible factor of having Windows 8.1 makes me drop the rating down from an excellent to a good. The fact that you can order the remote which is designed for Windows Media Center and it does not come with that makes me dislike it, but after purchasing it for $9.99 off of the Microsoft site, it is really cool. April 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful and powerful! I am very impressed and pleased with my purchase! This computer has everything I need and then some. March 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice computer My previous computer was a 7 or 8-year-old HP, which still works fine, but was getting dated. Have always been happy with HP products (desktops, laptops, printers, you name it) and this computer keeps the string going - it's reasonably small for a desktop, quiet, very fast. I use the computer for both work (I am a software engineer who works primarily on server development) and gaming, this computer is great for both. March 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A very good Computer Ok, it is faster than my old HP Pavillion computer. I only decided to buy this machine because the older one was .... well, getting too old. I think HP would have done better to include better documentation .... yes, you can find it online, and I found myself looking for things on line within the very first hour after turning it on. Also, If there had been the option of Win 7, I would have gotten that OS vs Win 8.1. I'm still trying to decide on whether or not I like this. If you are a novice computer user, take a class or two first. Windows 8 is not for the casual or new computer user(my opinion). I would have also liked the option of not taking the various "trial" versions of the installed software. These just get in the way if you are moving software from an old machine to your new one. HP should also consider that if your customer is buying a top of the line computer, why be so "cheap" with the keyboard. It's a small blip on the customer satisfaction scale, but it is important - in my opinion. Oh and one final very small blip. If the web site indicates the computer purchased will ship in 3 weeks, but you ship it the following week, you might want to give a lot of "heads up" notice. I do like this computer and I'm continuing my HP computer buying history. March 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased! This is the most powerful pc i have ever used, I could not be happier with its performance boots up in 20 seconds or less with ssd. My old xp which I order from here as well was still running strong but was going to be obsolete in a couple months so i ordered the envy phoenix 810-170st with windows 8.1. I was a little nervous with windows 8 but now after a few days of playing with the new OS I am in love with the speed. March 21, 2014
