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...

Had software glitches not covered under waranty


Did the NSA intercept my PC or something?

On paper it had good hardware configuration for the price. Shipped fast (got it in like 2 days) with free shipping

This computer never worked right. Windows was corrupted. I believe it also has some bios issues. When I reformatted the hd, and reinstalled windows it took 3 attempts before it finally completed. When I went to get the drivers I noticed there was a...

Love these 6005!


HP desktops are solid, their laptops usually run hot until their video chip dies.

Fast shipping, shrink wrapped, clean and in excellent condition. Came with 1x 4GB DDR3 RAM not 2x2GB, more slots for more RAM. These can hold up to a total of 32GB RAM. Toss a AMD Phenom II X4 B97 and a MSI GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 and you...

Windows 7 Pro key didn't work, but I have my ways.

Great Inexpensive Computer


Bought this inexpensive computer for my wife who only uses a computer to read her e-mail and do online shopping. She is happy with the computer as it meets her needs.

The first computer we received from Newegg was "Dead on Arrival". The Newegg return process was quick and easy. FedEx picked up the computer at our house and delivered it to Newegg. We were notified when Newegg received the computer, had tested the...

DOA- But An Honest Review


Hard Drive was a western digital black 2TB that was dead. System did POST but that was as far as it went before hard drive errors showed up. The sharpie cover up made me laugh, but since it was only cosmetic that didn't bother me. This is now the...

Was Clean inside. Was also good for a small chuckle

As another reviewer said it was filled in with a black sharpie on the scratches which made me laugh. Hard drive was DOA Doesn't come with backup disk.

Hp 6005 pro Refurbished


Very satisfied. For 140 bucks I was not expecting much. Just needed better. Wow this did the trick. I put a 5.1 sound card in and loaded up another 8 gbs of ram to the already installed 8 for 16 gigs. Fast. Hard drive is only 320 gb but dont need even...
