    Is this still a viable used buy?

    HP Pavilion DV8 18.4 inch screen
    CPU Intel Core i7 Q720
    8GB RAM
    Nvidia GeForce M7820
    Hitachi 500GB Hard Drive
    Windows 7

    Is it 16x9 or 16x10? Is it a good screen? The few Amazib reviews I read
    claimed there were some unfixabke gardware pronlems.

    Mine actually still works great, except I replaced the wifi adapter with a USB version since there is so much improvement.
    My windows 7 update has issues but prob my fault playing with reg cleaners.

    I have a windows 10 system on another machine and after you get it set up it's definitely more stable than anything prior.

    You can Uninstall or disable about anything you want with a little research.

    But my DV8T still sits on my kitchen table but I rarely use it except for the kids.

    Yes the screen works great still.

    I have an issue with the audio on Win 7 x86. I always get a 5-10 seconds delay after a long time with no sound playing. And when I listen to headphones, sound starts suddenly not to work anymore, until I reboot or disable Enhancements or restart Windows Audio service. I am using the original driver from HP website for this model. I would like to try the "v478.0_HP_cNB13_W78B_6498_BeatsV4_CP-1470_W.zip", but the link from the IDT ftp doesn't work, it asks for username and password. Does anybody have this driver? Thanks.

    Problem solved. Installed 6.10.6292.0, it is SP50642 for dv6/dv7. I finally found the one whose link doesn't work on IDT ftp, but the SRS Enhancements do not work.
