Lives up to its name. entertainment notebook
Date:June 26, 2010
"i bought a hp pavillion dv4-2110tu in the month of april 2010. The very day i purchased it i got the remote control replaced since the battery kept popping out. i was wondering whether i had made a mistake by buying the product. after a few weeks i learned to appreciate the product. the remote works with many of the players ( audio & video) and even though the functions cannot be configured it gets all the basic funtions. i can even shut down the pc with the remote. the remote should be pointed properly to get it to work since its IR. the finger printer reader is good addition. my friends cant access my pc without my permission and swiping my finger in front of them is great show off value. altec lansing are the best speakers around and inclusion of a woofer in future products would be welcome. intel graphics are adequate for low res gaming ( i play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl ). a graphics card would be need for high end gaming. the smart media software even thou takes ages to load is fun to use. the shiny touch pad is a drag (literally). clean/wet fingers don't slide over it easily. also the pad is not very sensitive and can get annoying at times ( when editing text documents). overall its a total entertainment pc. its way cooler than any of my friend laptop. stick to win7 basic its lighter on the system. people who want to network need upgrade to higher editions for better compatibility with xp systems. overall this is a feature rich laptop. i have a habit of taking care of my stuff so i havent got a chance to test its durability but with proper care the laptop will last."

Not so great as compared to my previous Compaq
Date:April 18, 2010
"This laptop was a disappointment. I had sent it back to the service centre within 3 days of using it coz of a bad overheating problem. They checked it & said it's ok, but it still fries my left hand. I have to use a cooling pad with it. It takes a long time to boot up and shut down. The built-in speakers often don't work after I have used headphones with it and plugged them out. The quick buttons for sounds lag and sometimes don't work. Sometimes, the light for mute sound comes on even when there is sound. I don't like the glossy finish too. It makes the laptop look dirty all the time. The casing surrounding the keyboard has fine holes and dirt gets trapped in there, adding to the dirty laptop look."

so-so
Date:February 23, 2010
"This HP laptop was bought for mainly gaming purposes etc. I am going to send it back for repairs due to the LCD problem and also the internet connection is just not working well. I had to refresh my connection v frequently. I had thot it was a vista or my cable problem but the previous reviewer had the same prob. This laptop is not even close to 1 yr old. Very disappointing as it looks pretty cool. Din like the glossy pointing device/touch pad, besides the fingerprints on it that makes the touch pad look dirty, sensing is not great and the button is actually a little bit loose from daily usage."

My review
Date:February 19, 2010
"I had bought my Laptop HP Pavilion DV4 Series Entertainment Notebook PC and only after a week i had an issue on weak internet connection but were fixed after reloading software driver w/ the help of HP technical support. Then after 2 months of usage i had an LCD issue, the display starts to have a line at the bottom of the screen then was fixed after replacing the LCD from HP service center. Then now i have an outstanding issue on Audio, the audio is muting every after i used the speaker and unplugging the headset. Though the support from HP are very nice still using this notebook is a big disappointment on me. Hope this is just an isolated case and and HP will continue to improve their products."

Not a very good laptop
Date:February 19, 2010
"Although the laptop perform quite good when i bought it, it slowly gave me more problems. The first problem is that the LCD screen was damaged when i bought the product. Secondly, the startup and shutdown is very slow. After I solved that problem, another problem arose. The Internet connectivity went crazy. i had to refresh the internet connection everytime i turned on the computer. Overall, i don't find this model good as i had already sent it for repair 2 times and am going to have to sent it for repair one more time"
