HP Digital Entertainment Center z556Filed Under: Home Theater Reviews, HTPCs (Computers)
PC mag took HP’s Z556 home theater PC for spin, and they really liked the results.
Their “bottom line”:
The HP Digital Entertainment Center z556 is cheaper than its predecessor, the z555 and includes Windows Media Center Update Rollout 2, which improves the Media Center experience. The system remains the standard for home-theater-friendly Media Center PCs.
This unit has one HD and 2 SD tv tuners. That’s the only problem I really see - no PVR functions for HD with only one tuner. If that’s not a major issue for you, this $1500 unit may be for you.
