PC Pro's verdict on HP's latest business desktop PC.

Many of the business PCs we've seen recently have focused on squeezing a competent specification into a space-saving chassis - four systems in our Business PC Labs opted for tiny chassis. The HP Compaq dc5800, though, bucks this trend, opting for a...

Hard to reach tech support

 

Item arrived quick, decent shape and boot up OK, with Windows loaded. But the Power supply is running blazing fast makes me think I am by a wind tunnel it never goes silent ; Problem tried reaching tech support Joy system though email and phone no...

Hard to reach tech support even though are offering one year warranty. So what use with it if I need help. So if they get back to me I will go higher on eggs or if not getting fixed will be a return product soon

As Advertised

 

I bought this for my elderly mother to replace her old HP Compag (also refurbished - lasted six years) to supplement her ChromeBook. Sadly, by giving her even more opportunity for Internet access, I may have thrown a bunny into the shark tank, so to...

Works as advertised. Plugged it in and every device (almost every device; almost everything; see Cons) was recognized immediately and it started right up. Paid less for a refurbished system than for the cost of a Windows 7 OS upgrade. It included a...

Had a little problem with the included keyboard. The system initially would not recognize it and couldn't find a driver. After a little tweeking, figured it out

Inexpensive and fast enough for the basics

 

Please realize that this PC is not going to get you maximum frame rates on the latest games, or replace your $5,000 workstation. I knew this PC was decent several generations of intel core ago, and it is ok for web browsing, or goofing around learning...

Inexpensive ($85 shipped on sale) and a great PC for what it is. Installed the included Win 7 then Netbeans and android SDK with no issues. I bought this to learn how to make apps for android without worrying about screwing up my regular desktop and am...

The included keyboard/mouse are OK but will be my first upgrades. Figured they would be after reading other reviews and at this price who cares

Great, Compact Desktop

 

Newegg Flash had a wonderful deal on this PC, so it really can't be beat for the price. Setup was very quick and I did not have any issues

The mouse that it comes with is worth almost nothing

Worked even better with a 10 dollar up0grade of the CPU an E8300 dual 2 core at 2.83 Gig. And a cheap video card.

Very solid working machine for my wife's home office work. The machine was very clean and almost looked like new ; The fast free shipping was the deal maker for me. I would buy again when the need arises
