Advice on buying from Compaq's UK Auction Site

AdvantagesA brand new machine at a bargain price.

DisadvantagesMay be cosmetically marked with rough packaging.

"...) I kept coming across Compaq and discovered they had their own Auction Site at www.auctions.compaq.co.uk which also carries some Hewlett Packard Equipment. I sucessfully bid for two Identical Computers and Monitors for myself and my son at a total cost for both machines of £885 ( which will reduce when I sell the old machines). The computers are Presario 6240EA and the monitors 17" S7500. Windows xp and all the drivers sorted by the manufacturer. The ..." Read review

AdvantagesFast, Fast, FAST!!! (Oh yeah... and easy to set up and use, too.)

DisadvantagesHuh?!!? No stereo speakers?!?!

"...some initial observations about the Compaq Presario 5004US. It’s the latest addition to Compaq’s stable of Presario 5000-series high-end desktop computers. It took me a year and a half to amass enough money to buy a new computer. I started saving my pennies practically the day I bought my Hewlett-Packard (HP) Pavilion 4550Z eighteen months ago. During that period, I read countless computer reviews, compared notes, and narrowed my list ..." Read review

Compaq Presario 7477 Internet PC EXPENSIVE for what it is

AdvantagesAll in one basic solution

DisadvantagesThe price..

"...directly to pages on the Compaq website. These contain things like the pick-of-the-week online shopping service, a search facility, driver updates and support information, plus a service that lets you use the PC's speakers and microphone to make voice calls via the Web. None of this is bad or damaging to the Presario's case, but neither is any of it good enough to make you forget about the shortcomings in the core specification. The same could ..." Read review

Compaq Presario 6097EA

AdvantagesAfter Sales Product Support

DisadvantagesUnwanted Pre-Installed Software

"...here to talk about the Compaq Presario 6097EA. Ah, who am I kidding, course I mean the PC. I have had it for about 6 months now and is an upgrade from a Compaq Presario 2292 which I had for about 4 years. Yes, that`s the downside, 4 years ago I had a state-of-the-art machine and nowadays it just doesn`t cut the mustard. Here`s a list of what you are going to get for your money: *Intel Pentium 4 2.2ghz processor Should suffice for even the most ..." Read review

AdvantagesQuality brand

DisadvantagesHard and anoying to upgrade

"I have had my Compaq Pressario 5400 PC for over 2 years now and with the expansion of technology, it quickly became out-dated. That seems to be the only problem with buying a PC these days, having to upgrade it every few years, which turns out to be quite expensive. For a tower PC it was quite small, but looked attractive and wasn't too heavy in weight. I think i paid arround £899 for it, which was average at the time but not very good in today's ..."
