      yes its older than u

      Yep, also no USB 3.0 ports since 3rd Gen Intel Core CPUs or newer are required

      • +2 votes

        If the chipset on the mobo supports it (which most from that gen did - mine does) then you get USB 3 ports

        • +2 votes

          The 8200 SFF doesn't have USB 3.0 I've had one as my home server for 4 years and you need a PCI-e expansion card to do it.

          Specs:
          https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c02781693

          The 8200 uses a Q67 (6th Gen Chipset) which only supports 3rd party USB 3.0 and not built into the chipset. The later models will have them built in using the 7th Gen Chipsets or newer (HP Elitedesk 800 G1 and newer).

            @bchliu: These i7s are not power efficient at all. 95W TDP. Not a good option if you are going to run it 24x7.

          Having spent a terrible weekend trying to upgrade the GPU on a HP i7 2600 machine, only to find that the god-awful motherboard HP used didn't really support any GPU upgrades, I'd be very wary of these machines.

            @jcon: They gimped it on purpose right? I was lucky with my old Dell was pretty standard inside…. not too much proprietary bull….

          •  

            @jcon: I had some difficulties with a similar model where I could install a graphics card with a power adapter to supply the extra power connector and I had to disable the front USB ports because the USB plug on the motherboard was in the way of the end of the video card, so out it came. I think there was the possibility of getting a low rise L shaped adapter where the USB plugged into the motherboard, but I decided not to go ahead for some reason.

      So? There are still plenty of areas thus pc can be used for. Not everything requires high end specification

          Whilst capacitors certainly commonly "dry out" (mainly due to a design issue with a stolen "recipe" from what I understand), but I'm not aware of transistors wearing out (other than damage from power on/off, spikes, etc).
          I have a 486 clone running Win 3.1 still going strong….

          • +1 vote

            @Gaz1: I don't think they use that dodgy formula anymore since the early 90's….

            Now I'll correct myself without an edit that the period for those stolen recipe capacitors were from around 99-07 see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague#Industrial_es....

            I do think you can still get bad batches tho, but I think Gaz1's point still holds pretty firm…..

          not saying this is a good deal - but nothing wrong with old gen stuff for certain application - for the right price of course.

    •  

      Pair this with a full height case and a high end GPU and you could game decently on it. It will eventually cause bottlenecks but if you want to have boards with PCI slots for compatibility, you can do far worse.

      i got the same generation serving me as a router. they still hold value

      • +8 votes

        Your power bills will cost you more than this is worth.

      •  

        Would you actually recommend someone buy this over a $150 router?

        •  

          There's only one NIC built in to start with. You'll need to buy more network cards which would almost certainly be more expensive than a $150 router.

    •  

      Is that worth negging the deal over? It's $149 for a full working PC with 90 day warranty.

      Not like they were hiding the processor generation.

      I've still got an i7 930 @ 4.2Ghz running Win10 and Office + ABBYY scanner.

      omg….I'm using an i7 2700 in my custom built PC……time to upgrade…..

      Less than 10 years….just saying

    Feedback for poster - should have photos of the back of your computers too so we can see the ports.

    Hack a hole in the side of the case and throw a 1650 super in it and this would be an ugly and cheap gaming rig for 1080p/60fps

    • +1 vote

      Nah, the motherboard will blow if you put a 1650 in it. Tried that the hard way after swapping out 3 boxes. The best you can do on these are 1050ti.

    •  

      Be wary.
      I spent a weekend trying to upgrade an HP i7 2600 machine and got nowhere. Found out a lot of people trying the same thing ended up blind-sided by an with a certain 'Pegatron' motherboard HP used in that era which effectively didn't support any more modern GPUs and there are no firmware updates available.

    If you buy it can you take the licence Windows 10 Pro licence key off it? and use Ubuntu, I was going to do a clean install of Windows 10 Home but may as well get this if possible and get the Pro key of it (if possible) and reinstall Windows 10 Pro on my laptop rather then Home.

    • +1 vote

      I'm fairly sure this is against some sort of T&C's.

    • +2 votes

      The licence will most likely be associated with the motherboard.

    •  

      In the EU you can, I don't think the law is strong enough here. I believe that's where a lot of those cheap Windows keys come from (Windows 7 licenses turned into Windows 10 and then resold)

    Are we able to swap the ssd with the 2.5” one and reinstall window on the new ssd? Thanks OP

    •  

      I believe that if you can get your hands on a windows 7 iso, it will self activate over the internet, you won't need the serial. That seems to be general rule of thumb with brand name computers, HP, Lenovo, etc

        I've had good success with Samsung's cloning app (used with evo 850 and 860 ssds) connect ssd via a sata cable for best speed. Takes a few hours if you use external usb case, especially without usb3…

      •  

        You can either clone it as bowjjj posted, or reinstall Win 10 without the key and no need for Win7 install disk, as it will already have a digital license and activate automatically once connected to the Interwebs.

      two units from somebody selling them out of their garage. + $30 postage

        Lol. If you can't beat that price, then just write crap about your competition right?

        Price match them if you can since you're a bigger organisation with plenty of leveraging power to purchase old corporate PCs.

      Lol @ ddr3 sd ram.

      Sd = standard data rate
      Ddr= double data rate

      I wouldn't buy anything off someone with that little pc knowledge…

    •  

      $20 difference actually, and this one's got SSD so it all depends on what you need I guess.
      Ok price for either.

    Honest Retailer Review - Buyer Beware
    I've had some pretty bad aftersales support with these guys (YMMV), where the items that have been sent down have been in worse condition than shown/detailed on the listings (their definition of 'minor cosmetic damage' is equivalent to 'major wear & tear' to normal people), replacement parts (surface pro 3 keyboard) haven't worked/frayed and with major cosmetic damage and to top it all off, have been unwilling to honour their word (after they offered to refund me so long as I paid for the shipping, they reneged once they received the item because of their clerical issue) and they refuse to compromise and outright now disregard what I have to say. I've had to resort to raising a complaint with eBay support and ACCC. I consider myself to be a pretty reasonable customer, but to say the least, it has been a painful few months dealing with these guys (still ongoing).

    It may seem like you are getting a good deal, but think long and hard about it, if it's an item you don't think you will need aftersales support, then you'll be fine. But for refurbished electronic products, I think good aftersales support is just as important as the cost of the product because likelihood of defects and issues are higher. This being the case, I suggest staying well away.

    If I save even 1 person from going through the same hard ache I have been through, I will be happy.

    Happy to provide more info if you'd like, please PM me.
