Rated 2 out of 5 by NdreB from Speakers are HORRIBLE The speakers are HORRIBLE... I can barely hear the audio when I watch movies. I don't often feel like putting on headphones just to watch a movie but unfortunately these speakers don't work well enough on their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by C Gray from Pavilion Gaming Laptop I purchased this laptop for my daughter to use in a class in graphic design. I have some background in electronics and chose this laptop solely on specifications. I don't have any personal experience with this unit but my daughter was pleased with it and said it worked fine for it's intended use...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Star Strider from Great, Fast Ryzen 7 5800H Laptop High quality, excellent processor & related hardware, fast. Win 11 took some getting-used-to, and I was eventually able to get all the apps I wanted to (Task Manager, Resource Monitor, Control Panel, etc.) as desktop icons or toolstrip links. I’ve not installed Steam or any games yet, since I’m mostly using it for MATLAB just now. My laptop is primarily a backup for my HP OMEN desktop. My one concern continues to be the touchpad, since here in the Southwestern U.S. during certain parts of the year fine silica dust gets into everything and eventually destroys the touchpad utility, making the computer useless. Sealing the touchpad with a durable, flexible (polyurethane?) membrane would solve this problem. (This has been a problem with other HP laptops, not yet this one.)
