HP Compaq 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop


Business-class computers like the HP Compaq 8000f Elite are a complicated bunch. Aimed at a market segment with particular maintenance and security needs, they tend to offer improved hardware and software functionality, while sacrificing elements of...

Comprehensive software platform ; Small, silent chassis

Limited storage space

HP's Compaq 8000f Elite offers business-centric performance in a bite-size PC, but fumbles on a few essentials.

Desktop PC Review: HP Compaq 8000 Elite


Getting the system set up was simple and straightforward: Just connect the cables, power up the machine, and set a few Windows options, and you'll be up and running in moments. Our review unit came loaded with the 64-bit version of Windows 7...

Eco-friendly manufacturing, Compact design, Supports Intel vPro technology, Above-average warranty

Limited configuration options, No expansion-card slots, Relatively cramped hard drive

Any company looking to equip its business with a fleet of environmentally friendly, power-stingy, compact desktops that can be remotely managed should seriously consider the 8000f—as long as they can abide by its limitations. These include a relatively...

works fine


As the prior reviewer mentioned, I had the same sleep mode problem and called (Joy Service). Here is the fix: Power up and hit F10 key until the menu appears for the bios . Choose English, then power, then OS power management, then ACPI S3 hard disk...

This is a solid old pc for the price

(See the fix for the sleep issue ) ; I had trouble with my old PS/2 connector keyboard, but it worked fine with a usb converter

Bad Luck


customer service was real nice, that is why I sent it back to them instead of returning it to newegg.

good price

when it arrived the bois alarm was going off constant so I called ATS customer service and had to send the machine back to their service center and haven't got it back yet

bad out of the box


Use computers in a small business, needed this one in bad way. Didn't expect a dud.

Shipped quickly

This unit was evidently not tesred. Would show xesktop. Then crash. Went on line and was sent a return number. No call tag, cost $50.00 to ship back, was lead to believe a new computer was sent to replace the bad one, nothing yet

Should be better


LOUSY CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! My call ended with me telling her I would find the number myself and let everyone know how bad my experience was. If you aren't looking for a total throw away machine, keep looking. I have bought a ton of stuff from Newegg,...

The PC it's self isn't bad, but out of two ordered, one came in with a "on it's last leg" hard drive. The speed is decent, has a optical drive of unknown origin. The reason I say this is that some of them have read/write, some have read only. They...

Components in the machine going bad straight out of the box. Out of 2 ordered, one has a bad drive. In addition to this, I have 2 7900 HP refurbs as well. Same issue with them, one of the two has a drive going out. These guys are sending out junk....
