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...

Bang for the Buck!

 

Excellent Win7 small footprint PC. Needs more RAM. Might as well throw a SSD in it too.

Great value

 

To use a video card, I bought a sata to 6-pin adaptor for $4.00. Works great now.

Nice computer. I upgraded to Windows 10 right away and put in a old AMD 5770 video card. My nephew games on it all the time, works great for older games and newer games on lower settings

No 6-Pin PCI cable to plug in a video card

Get what you buy...

 

Not worth it...

Easy shipping, cheap cost

I bought several of these refurb'd Desktops. 2 continuously are going to blue screen of Death and have to constantly be restarted. Didn't start to do this for a few weeks after getting them installed so now is past the 30 day return date. It is...

Good Deal on paper

The Hard Drive was loud and slow (59MB/s). Soon after setup there was additional noises I am assuming fan related. The return policy is actually replace only in contrary of what is in the posting, however newegg made an exception on my order....

Watchout

 

Nice and small

Of the 3 I ordered, 2 had power supplies fail days after warranty ran out, they must know when they fail. The power supply is now one made in Germany, not china, if you buy get the updated power supply right away. Nice its external, easy to replace
