Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The sound bar produces loud and clear sound with decent stereo separation.
The webcam is the best of any Windows all-in-ones we tested, plus it’s located above the display, not on the bottom, like other Windows options.
The 2016 update of the HP Envy AIO 27 has a really pleasing and simple design, it's easy to use and its B&O sound system is better than your average built-in sound.

What reviewers didn't like

The touchscreen is very reflective.
You can’t easily upgrade the storage or the RAM in the Envy, and HP doesn’t provide documentation for how to do so.
The bundled keyboard and mouse aren't that great, and some people might find the display a little too washed out.
