Not bad at all for the price.
The Ryzen 7-3750h sits somewhere between the older i5-7300H and the i5-8300H
The GTX 1650 is similar in performance to a GTX 1060 Max-Q
The chassis seems decent enough and it features a USB-C port that other entry gaming laptops tend to omit. (Looking at you Asus) A 4th USB port would be nice however

my concern is the build quality of Pavilion, seems the reputation is not good.

I most definitely agree with this. Having HP laptops at home for many years and right now, we're trying out one from Costco and nothing has changed.

For one thing, our particular model's fans kick into high gear with very little CPU load. They're noisy as heck, especially in the bedroom. This one uses an Intel SSD. I can't run SSD life to keep tabs on the SSD lifespan and health because I get an error message that it's not a true SSD drive. These issues may be minor for some people, but the reliability once the warranty runs out remains low, imo.

Hard to Say really.
This is an Entry level gaming machine so the overall quality definitly won't be the same as a 3000$ Razer.
Cooling appears decent so noise and heat should be average (at least in therms of gaming laptops) but it's hard to Say without testing it.
According to notebookcheck their Biggest issue with the case of the previous gen was a loose screen but they noted that this year's model has new wider hinges so hopefully it was done to adress this issue.
At least Costco has a great Return policy in case you run into problems.
