The detail of our analysis in this article.
Pavilion 15-dk0005ne enough for internet use?
Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.A minimum quality level is important to guarantee reliability over time. It is a balance between a 1st price and the latest multi-processor designed for professionals.A fairly powerful multi-processor, but one that won’t require you to take out a credit to pay for it.You only have to take it in your hand to see that the material is of quality.
By putting on the market the Pavilion 15-dk0005ne, Hp offers a well thought-out product of very good quality.
With a 15 inches size, it is in the average, and you can carry it relatively easily. The processor chosen for this model is a Core i5-9300H. Indeed, the power it delivers is interesting, even if it is not the latest generation of component. Contrary to a video editing style use that requires computing power, this model is correct for surfing the internet; a use that does not require too much computing power. With 8 Gb of RAM, it Pavilion 15-dk0005neis a good product. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
The size of the hard drive makes this laptop one of the biggest. Even if you think 1100 Gb is more than enough, it’s surprising to discover that it’s easy to fill a disc completely with photos, movies or games in a very short time. Here, Hp provides with this Pavilion 15-dk0005ne a laptop that will allow you to watch all your films locally for a long time.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 7 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. You will have a limited time of freedom, needing to have the power kit nearby. Because of this last point, you can either switch to a competitor’s laptop or always have the product plugged in; it’s up to you.
Is Pavilion 15-dk0005ne one for watching movies and listening to music ?
High quality, the engineers of Hp have chosen to make this Pavilion 15-dk0005ne the top of the range for leisure uses: movies, music, photos. You will benefit from an unparalleled comfort of use. Among all the laptops of the moment, it appeared to us as one of the best for multimedia use. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
Hp has chosen a medium size screen to meet everyone’s needs. With its 15 inches and resolution of 1920×1080, it can be suitable for a lot of uses including watching films. And in film display mode, you’ll have excellent visual quality with bright, realistic images. In conclusion, it is a well-balanced product that allows the films to be viewed correctly; and with a contained weight of 2.3 kg, it is easily transportable.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Pavilion 15-dk0005ne. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
This Pavilion 15-dk0005ne, equipped with a processor Core i5-9300H, corresponds to a price/power ratio in the average, sufficient for a dedicated multimedia use. Although it is in the middle of the range, this processor will be able to evolve according to your future needs, and in the immediate future will allow a good compatibility with all your peripherals. This will result in fluid video and audio sessions.
With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 – 3 Go GDDR5, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 8 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Regarding the connectivity part, Hp has made efforts with available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. Hp promises 7 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
The Pavilion 15-dk0005ne to use while travelling.
It Pavilion 15-dk0005ne is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. This seems to be the issue that the Hp didn’t really take into account in the design of this Pavilion 15-dk0005ne. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.3 Kg. Every transport is painful. If you use it on your lap, you will find that it is cumbersome. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. The explanation mainly comes down to the size of the screen: 15inches.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. The screen shows an interesting result.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
The energy consumed by the processor Core i5-9300H is in the average currently.
However, please note that the autonomy indicated by Hp must be reduced. Rather count on 70% of this value in standard use; the more you use the processor, the lower the figure will be.
As for the autonomy , the batteries will allow you to use it for about 7 hours.
Because use is likely to consist of travel and traveling, this laptop was thin and relatively light with 2 hard drives, one SSD, the other normal, for an overall size of 1100 Gb. The main advantage of this disc mix is that the SSD contains fewer moving parts, and is faster, and that the standard disc allows more recording-erasing phases. With an absence of moving mechanical parts on the OS and startup part, it means less risk in terms of fragility and generated heat that can cause the laptop to fail. And if you still need more storage, you’ll need to add an external drive, or take out a private cloud subscription.
Even if a portable laptop stays at the hotel 80% of the time, it is relevant to have a screen that is not too big so as not to be disturbed, but big enough to enjoy the image. Because of its size, 15 inches this laptop represents a good compromise.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Finally with the Pavilion 15-dk0005ne, Hp deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.

As standard, you will have the applications to make your video editing or your photo or music modifications. If on the other hand you start on pro applications, it will be necessary to add more memory.
For audio and video editing use, it is interesting to have a laptop combining hard drive and SSD; hard drive for large storage capacity, SSD for fast flash memory. Here, the laptop advantageously has a good space of storage. This model offers the best possibilities with a storage space of 1100 Gb. It’s one of the best models on this point. In case you need an additional external storage drive, no problem with a connection to external media. In extreme cases, you can always add an external hard drive to one of the USB ports.
In terms of autonomy,the Hpkept it simple. The available battery life is of 7 hours in standard conditions of use, which means keeping the charger close at hand because the audio-visual assembly consumes a lot of power. A result in the average of the competitors.
On the connection side, the Pavilion 15-dk0005nei s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
