My apologies, and thanks again!]]>
i tried 256 but i dont think that worked]]>
Unfortunately, the review does not perform a complete test of the machine.
My computer experience would be classed as expert.
The person would have listed the fact that the
esata port doesn’t really work correctly with the software it ships with. All usb 2.0 ports underperforms compared to Acer laptops.
Whilst silver looks great, the mirror like reflections
make it unuseable outside.
This machine runs very hot. Life expectancy very suspect.
then the battery life is about 30 mins…
I own a dv5 and encountered numerous problems which disappointed a discerning techie such as myself. I admit, I made a BIG mistake buying HP.
The hp support is attrociously bad and did not resolve my multiple problems. In fact, they stuffed me around for 7 months.
The only saving grace really is that my AMD version does support virtualisation! Hooray.
Oh…the speakers are good but do you really need
builtin speakers in a laptop? Makes the laptop 1 inch wider and heavier too!
I paid a premium for my DV5 and it was a waste of money. Do not buy HP DV type laptops.
Do not buy HP laptops. they look good but fall way short on so many levels. Hope this helps others.
Its been a whole year and I’ve not faced any problems.
I’ve not yet checked eSATA port, will post after using it.
Yes the screen reflects a lot and I mentioned it in my review.
Yes it runs hot and I mentioned that as well, but if you need performance you will have to compromise a bit.
There must be something wrong with your laptop battery as I’m using it for more than 12 months and I can still watch high definition movie for almost 1:20 Hrs.
Most importantly your machine has different specs than mine and I reviewed only DV5-1135EE model. Everything may vary for all models.
At the end “I’m still loving it :)”]]>
