amazon HP Pavilion dv7t reviews
Design and feel
HP Pavilion dv7t with dark brown shell (labeled as “dark brown”) with aluminum scratch quite nice. The frame around the screen edges made of glossy plastic typically found in the HP laptop’s design. The name of the model machine is located in the upper right-hand side of the screen, and the words “Beats Audio” is written in the upper left corner (Beats Audio is HP’s audio software). In general design of the machine is quite sophisticated and trendy. There’s also a steel-gray version.
Metal chassis of the HP Pavilion dv7t have been many improvements in quality. The entire aluminum lid and the bottom of the machine hard plastic, creating a solid framework for the machine, not bend when the impact force on the center keypad. The palm rest area is also good strength, with beautiful aluminum and cooler while operating. The speakers are located at the machine frame above the keyboard, touchpad below and on the bottom and create surround sound effects are very good. The touchpad is surrounded by a light blue backlight. The only downside of the machine structure is two aluminum hinges less powerful, can be bent when pressed on them, though, you can safely use them for long.
HP Pavilion dv7t quite large in size, with a 17.3 inch screen and weighing 3kg, quite heavy and bulky to carry on the road, but will be very good if you just put on your desk or moving indoors or office.
Ports and Features
HP dv7t quad-core with port number “above average” when compared to most entertainment laptops. The unit is classified as high-speed laptop SuperSpeed, with 2 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI 1.4 and VGA, and a multiformat card reader. There is no DisplayPort or ExpressCard port.
Keyboard and Touchpad
HP dv7t is equipped with a chiclet keyboard full size, not too popular with keys and the keys on the surface is flat, not curved. Wide spacing between the keys considerably reduces typos. This is a significant improvement compared to the previous model dv7 use traditional keyboards. In addition, the machine also has a full numeric keypad on the right side.
Test typing on this keyboard is quite good experience despite the flat keys, positive feedback keys and user familiarity with the traditional keyboard will not show surprise when acquainted with this keyboard. Hard aluminum chassis of the machine helps the keyboard is very firm and almost pulled down whether you have a strong hand pressed, the keys will not be the phenomenon of flex.
However, the keyboard has no backlight (backlit) was a minus point for a laptop computer entertainment HP dv7t, because if users watch movies or play games in the dark, it will be difficult to find exactly the key positions. This may disappoint some users.
Another issue is the size of four-way arrow key groups. Usually the size of the keys is slightly smaller than the letter keys, but on this keyboard, the arrow up / down very small. This can be annoying for users, especially those who used to play arcade games will frequently need to use these keys.
HP also removed several multimedia keys and quick access buttons (quick launch) which is useful old dv7 laptops. The only this Dv7t a browser launch buttons. “Innovation” can be advantages or disadvantages depending you prefer design with fewer buttons, or you prefer the easy access to commonly used applications.
If dv7 model previously very glossy touchpad, though beautiful but very uncomfortable in use as fingerprints, the touchpad has been designed Dv7t fuzzy significantly improves fingerprint problem.
The touchpad also has a new design, as “oversized clickpad,” that is larger touchpad most commonly found on laptops. However, it works much smoother not when you hover with your finger a little moisture. Also, it is not integrated scroll bar (scrollbar) with the default settings, a feature that was supposed to be on a laptop multimedia. Also, the touchpad buttons make loud click – clack slightly annoying when you hit them. However, to say that the touchpad has the experience to better use than the touchpad on the HP dv7.
