HP Compaq 6005 Pro Small Form Factor PC

 

Featuring a microATX motherboard the HP Compaq 6005 Small Form Factor PC is relatively svelte, measuring 13.3 inches by 14.90 inches square and less than four inches tall. (Note: HP also sells the model 6005 in a micro-tower configuration).

Compact; lots of inputs; efficient; three-year warranty; SSD storage; quiet

Uninspired appearance; hard-drive performance will likely slow over time; a little pricey

Overall, the HP Compaq 6005 is a solid entry in a highly competitive field. Its utilitarian appearance is well matched by its quiet efficiency and decent performance. While you may see the system bog down a bit as the hard drive fills up, this system...

HP Compaq 6005 Pro Small Form Factor PC

 

Easily accessible chassis with room for upgrades ; Superior performance for a small(ish) system

Bigger Value PCs deliver more speed for less ; Dull keyboard and mouse

HP delivers a system that's unquestionably speedy for its small(ish) size, but they've left out details that could have brought it closer to the top.

Desktop PC Review: HP Compaq 6005 Pro

 

The quad-core CPU helped the 6005 Pro power through other benchmarks, rendering Cinebench R10 's sample scene in 90 seconds and posting a score of 8,680 in PCMark Vantage . The AMD 785G chipset's ATI Radeon HD 4200 integrated graphics are less...

HP Compaq 6005 Pro Small Form Factor PC

 

Yes, it is a nice machine. And one can order it with Windows XP Pro. I went ahead and got one, but I want to add a better video card. So I need a bigger power supply. And that is when I discovered the non-standard PSU connectors. Not ATX 20/24...

Can get it with XP Pro

Proprietary non-standard parts that cannot be upgraded

Nice computer, but not if you really need it

 

Poor quality control when Newegg cobbles together these refurbished machines cause many problems. Because I bought the computer as a project to teach my kids about computers (setting up a minecraft server), I'm willing to stick it out. If you need a...

Good specs for the price

Poor quality control ; Wonkey keyboard

Not DOA but close.

 

Price for hardware included with windows 7 is great

1.The ram will not stay in place ; 2.Dead cmos battery aftter about a week.( Defualt bios setting for boot order is cd/usb/hd ) ; 3."Proprietary hardware" (psu) (drive srcews, this prevented the use of an sdd)

Extremely frustrating

 

In decent physical condition; didn't notice any problems

until about three months in when it began only playing audio through tiny, tinny speakers on the tower. And then the USB drives went. And so on. Huge disappointment. Would never have expected this from newegg

Doing Good!

 

I wish it came with wifi capability (we are using an external device)

We have been using this on our secretary's desk for 14 months now. It has been doing great. We are quite pleased with it

This really has done a great job for the price. We purchased it refurbished for $280 - WOW

Excellent Machine For The Money

 

In like new condition, Priced at almost what the hard drive alone would cost, 8 gig of ram, 2TB Hard Drive, Low Power Consumption, Plenty fast for every day uses

CPU a little aged so some things can get slow

Customer Service Rocks Problem PC

 

Customer Service saved the day here. This was the first purchase I've ever made with Newegg, and it was brutally frustrating to have the unit you've saved up for over two months simply refuse to operate. But several very nice people worked out to get...

Was well packaged ; shipped SUPER fast ; Customer Service worked with me to replace the faulty unit

Would not boot up. Multiple Error Messages, all with fatal flaws. Managed to get into Control Panel twice, even the repair wizard couldn't do anything with it
