HP Compaq 8200 Elite All-in-One Review: A Superfast PC That Fizzles

 

Trying to dig up a low-cost, all-in-one, business-class desktop system that doesn't stink is a bit like trying to find a magic lamp in a cave: It's a daunting proposition, to say the least. And the HP Compaq 8200 Elite all-in-one desktop doesn't make...

Superfast general performance ; Integrated 802.11n connectivity

Limited connection options ; Below-average storage capacity

If speed is the name of your game, you won’t be disappointed by this business-class, all-in-one system. But that’s all it really brings to the table.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite USDT

 

The desktop comes with two laptop-style drives: a 2.5-inch 250GB hard drive and a tray-loading DVD burner. This setup has plusses and minuses. The hard drive can be swapped out for another solution in some configurations, but both the spinning hard...

Compact form factor. Includes MXM card slot. SSD option available

Uses notebook-class hard and optical drives, external power supply. Not expandable. No HDMI, USB 3.0, eSATA ports. Limited capacity storage. Replacing hard drive somewhat involved

The HP Compaq 8200 Elite USDT is a compact desktop that isn't burdened by legacy hardware, which makes it a good choice for businesses dealing mainly with information on the LAN or on the Internet.

BUSINESS READY!

HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra-slim PC (XZ788UT)

 

Of course, as the name indicates, this is a small-bodied computer, intended for situations where space savings matter. As a result, you have to temper your expectations in certain ways. This model doesn't offer the same range of upgrade and...

Performs well for price ; Compact design ; Supports Intel vPro technology ; Eco-friendly manufacturing ; Above-average warranty

Limited upgrade potential ; Bundled keyboard, mouse use PS/2

Excellent speed for the money, plus handy management features and a long warranty, make the 8200 Elite a winning compact PC for business.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra-Slim Desktop Review

 

Although the desktop market isn't shrinking too fast these days, the desktops themselves are.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite

 

Sleek and minimalistic, this all-in-one PC packs a performance wallop with a blazing CPU, cavernous disk memory and extremely capable video. An abundance of input and output methods receive and share digital data.

The warranty is for a generous three years, and there is a next-day service for parts and labor

No complaints, but if you need a touch screen this is not the particular HP computer for you

The HP Compaq 8200 Elite is a superb all-in-one computer.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra-slim Review

 

Here's one reason why you should be interested in the HP Compaq 8200 Elite Ultra Slim for your business use: It's fast. The company decided to slap an Intel Sandy Bridge processor into its reasonably priced £838 business desktop. Alas, this speedy CPU...

HP has strapped a speedy Sandy Bridge CPU into an antiquated system design, delivering strong performance for a business class desktop, but not much else.

HP Compaq 8200 Elite All-in-one review

 

So how does the Compaq 8200 Elite stack up? Though slightly slower and slightly smaller (at a screen size of 21.5in), Lenovo's ThinkCentre M91z trades a performance difference of 8% for a full touchscreen, identical storage capacity, and support for...

You can't actually use those x16 slots due to no PCIe auxiliary power connectors

 

This system is defective by design.

Great processor, plenty of ram

There are no PCIe auxiliary power connectors. Even worse, the oddly-shaped proprietary HP power supply with proprietary HP power supply connectors on the motherboard mean you can't even buy a suitable replacement.
