    Arun VS

    Short review :- Awesome… Go for it….

    Long review(warning :- Really long)
    There are gaming laptops and there are productivity laptops. And when you are in the market and spend weeks of research, there are chances that you have very specific needs. Often times most of us end up sacrificing one or other criteria before zeroing in on a particular model. At least I did that 3-4 times in the past. Because, for whatever reasons, the model we like for performance, may be so poorly built, or the one that catches the eye would be costing you a kidney. Not anymore. Most of the brands have come up with well balanced solutions, and I would say bc008tx is top of that creamy layer, at least for now.

    I was searching for my next daily driver, requirements being – well suited for productivity(I work on multiple virtual machines, multiple instances of android running along with visual studio), less frequent media editing and a bit of gaming. I did research for a week before holiday sales started and had a shot list of few models(HQ processors, 8GB RAM and decent discrete graphics). I also budgeted for an SSD and RAM(to16GB) upgrade.
    The sale started and for couple of days there were not much noticeable offers, until the electronic sale started…. And…. voila!!!!… there is our boy HP Pavilion 15-bc008tx.
    As always I swept the internet for reviews and more information as the provided specs were too god to believe. But being a new entrant into the market, It had very few trails in web. Finally I decide to go for it, as there was also a very sweet exchange offer for my old laptop. Three times the order got erred out midway as the laptop went out-of-stock. Finally I could place the order, and the long wait (2 week waiting time) started.
    But Flipkart delivered the item in 9 days.
    I’s skeptical during unboxing as this is the first item I’m ordering online without seeing any reviews. Surprise!!! A backpack…. the HP trendsetter series(W2N96PA – with online price in the range of 1500). Nice first impression….
    Then the laptop box itself.. neatly padded and well protected with styrofoam molds.

    Now to the actual review :
    The Laptop body is silver/aluminium matte finish with a shiny HP logo.
    At 2.18Kg, it weighs OK for a “gaming” grade laptop, but what catches the eyes is the thin look from the edges. HP has managed to contour the design cleverly to make it look thin(even though it isn’t).
    All expansion bays/ ports are well placed, the peripheral connections won’t hinder the mouse movements …nice.
    The lid, though, cant be opened by one hand, without dragging the body along. The new type of hinges are shiny and sturdy enough and adds a nice look.
    The keyboard is well spread-out,. You can barely feel the keys registering the clicks, gamers are not gonna like this, but perfect for my typing/coding scenarios. Its back lit also.
    Screen looks really good, with IPS fullHD and an anti-glare finish, the viewing angles are good and the color accuracy is excellent. The bright screen is enough to throw ambient light on the keyboard. Hence I rarely use the key backlight.
    Performance is great. The SSD boot really shows its muscle and you ll reach the desktop in a jiffy while powering on.
    I setup my dev env pretty fast and its working really fluid.
    I’m yet to benchmark gaming performance and that would be another separate review post.

    1. Specification to die for in this Price range. (I got it for 75K during the BBD season)
    2. Fairly light weight compared to other GTX960M laptops
    3. Most of us would not have to upgrade storage/memory for quite some time
    4. Clean, simple and streamlined looks
    5. Really really powerful
    6. Screen is crisp and really bright
    7. Superb ventilation keeps the laptop cooler compared to most other gaming laptops

    1. Speakers are load and B&O sound controls work OK, but still you would need a good quality headphones to enjoy the crisp audio to its fullest quality
    2. Weight distribution is a bit off, you would need to use both hands while opening the lid
    3. Some may not like the silver finish of the exterior, as it looks like a mac from a distance(I’m one of them :-p)
    4. Anti-glare finish of the screen is not that much effective in really bright light sources
    5. webcam is average(but decent in well-lit conditions), but this is rarely a deal breaker IMO.

    This is a powerful beast that hides in an ordinary outfit. Dont get fooled by its innocent looks.
    This HP pavilion 15-bc008tx is a great performer.

    Great product, runs amazingly smooth until now… The only issue is when i received the laptop in it warranty period had already started 2 months back and now my warranty period left for 10 months.. Running watchdogs on ultra settings and it runs smoothly.

    I bought this product from a different store and have been using it for 2 months, and mine has a 4K screen. I am really impressed by this product. It is going to be a slightly lengthy review(its my first review)

    First to the specs.
    Processor : Its an 6th Gen i7 QUAD core processor, unlike i7 U series which are dual core. This one has two more cores extra and comes in handy for resource intensive applications. Also, it has a 6MB L3 cache which reduces the number of fetches from main memory. Basically fast. TDP is rated at 45W which is less compared to the desktop counterparts rated anywhere between 120 – 190W. So, it is relatively cooler and in two months, it never became too hot to place it in my lap. Also, the clever ventitaltion by HP really keeps the laptop cool in most scenarios except high end gaming and
    3D design and rendering.

    RAM : Its a DDR4 ram clocked at 2133 Mhz, thats really fast and complements the fast processor and there is 16GB of it. All you will ever need , atleast for next few more years, unless you are planning to use this machine as a server and this is not built for that purpose.

    Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 960M. yes, you are right. not a GT, its is GTX. Though not a high end like 980 or the newer 10 series, it is a surprisingly good mid-level graphics card with the latest GDDR5 memory(4GB) it can handle most of the games at high setting without any problem. when i ran a diagnostic with unigine valley benchmark tool, it easily maintained 50 – 60 fps at 1920×1080(full HD) with 2x anti-aliasing. with medium or 720p settings, i was able to touch 110 fps. I suppose, that should be fine for most casual gamers and enthusiast. Video transcoding was faster too, didnt have much time to do an extensive test, but whatver test i threw at it so far, it handled them with ease.

    Screen: The one i have is of 4K resolution, i would say it is an overkill. But the product listed here is a 1920×1080 (Full HD) resolution which is pretty sharp and bright(uses less battery than the 4K one). There is an issue though some older application do not scale well and the text and UI looks really tiny. It is not the problem of system, it is a problem with the windows OS. Microsoft still haven’t fixed the scaling problem ( even in windows 10, mac is lot better in this regard). So, we have a really good screen.

    Keyboard & touchpad: The keys are well spread out with a separate numeric pad(very useful for me). The reach is bit lesser compared to dell latitude or lenovo thinkpad(best laptop keyboard yet) this might take some getting used to, but you will get used to it sooner than you think.( I use thinkpad for work.)

    Storage: We have 128 GB SSD + 1TB harddisk drive at 7200 RPM. SSD is the primary harddisk which adds to the speed of the system. Thought it is not the latest NVMe, its read write speeds are more than satisfactory. With such an huge storage(most of us will fill it up with movies and songs anyway) we wont be needing to upgrade them for a while.

    Ports: We have three USB ports(two of them are USB 3.0, and no USB-C yet), HDMI, card reader, headphone jack, RJ45 for network and power port. so, no complaints there

    Other than these we have B&O tuned speakers, not for eaphones. but the audio quality is very pretty standard. Webcam is also a standard affair(though the laptop i have has a Intel realsense 3D webcam which can also be used to scan and create 3D model).
    Build quality is very good, i does not look big at all, thanks to the clever contoured design by HP. The silver back is kind of bright and looks bland, to my taste. But it will remind most of the people of the macs. The chrome plated hinges are sturdy and built to last.

    Now, when i switched on, 2.6ghz processor(base speed)+2133 ghz ram + 350 MB/s SSD = 5 second boot. yes, literally i get the windows 10 login screen in 5 seconds. and multi tasking is a breeze and wifi connectivity is satisfactory.

    Battery lasts for 5 hours on normal use at medium brightness for the 4K screen version. But for the full HD screen laptop listed here i expect a longer life, which is good compared to the power it is packing

    I rate this product 5/5 for its sheer versatility. Thought there are few things that could have bee better. For the asking price, The screen could have been a touchscreen, wifi card could have been a better one supporting 2×2 . But these are very specific requirements since considering the fact that there are not many applications optimised for touch input, and very high wifi speeds are demanded only by hardcore games and R&D people and most of the wifi networks are still not upgraded .

    Overall, an impressive product worth buying. though i am biased towards DELL products, still i went ahead and pruchsed this one, that must say a lot about this product.

    Nice laptop. Came with a beautiful HP bag. Know the cons: 1. No finger print scanner 2. Too heavy 3. Plastic body. 4. B&O speakers not that great. Not sure about the value for money. Can be a desktop pc replacement and a healthy one. But forget planning travel journeys with this one. Its not travel friendly.

That day itself I applied for replacement but the customer support is so poor that till date my product has not been picked up by them for replacement and they keep delaying the the dates for pick up .To all those interested in buying this product I would personally suggest you guys to buy this product from official hp site otherwise the specs are really good .

    Build quality is the biggest issue. Laptop is worth a big chunk of money still offers incompatible material quality. Body is plastic & the screen bevel too tends to make squeezing noise while cleaning. Overall in this price range it looks a bit outdated with a graphics processor(GTX 960m) and 6th gen i7 processor.
    Other than that laptop would be suitable to last effortlessly 5 years (not a big deal though).

    All my old Acer and Dell laptops had wifi hotspot creation feature. HP support is asking to buy an adapter but that would unnecessarily occupy a USB port.
    HP support referred to 3rd party software but it does not work as the Intel adapter does not allow hotspot.

    For such a costly laptop, it is crucial to have modern basic features like wifi hotspot. Be careful.

    Best laptop under this price tag.. Looks very professional yet a beast gaming machine
    Boot is very fast thanks to ssd
    Battery life is also very good as it’s a pavilion series
    Easy to carry and light weight as compared to other gaming laptops having 960gtx.
    Overall a excellent buying option if you into gaming and performance
