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.

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

We have noise

 

The system seems to be working fine. Hard to beat it for the price

But the fan is a real winner. May need to replace the power supply. The bearing is constantly letting you know its there.I'll take a look at it next weekend

Fast computer for the price, runs EQ1 & 2 without a problem with stock 4200 graphics chip, will upgrade to a video card to give the system more support, no problem on setup with windows, replaced a windows XP computer I built 7 years ago

Small Form factor, Nice & quiet, Athlon 3.0GHz CPU, 8GB Ram, 1 TB HDD(instead of 750gb), Win7 Pro 64 Bit, no cost for shipping and arrived in 1 day

No windows disk with this computer

Consumer review by:

Good PC for this price

 

This is a decent quality desktop for someone looking for an actual work rig: word processing, data sorting and analysis, presentations, etc. It is not a gaming rig, nor is it especially well suited for media consumption. The hard drive failed about a...

Fast CPU ; large HDD ; plenty of USB ports ; small tower ; quiet ; came with Windows 7 CD ; good customer support

Cheap and flimsy mouse and keyboard ; limited capacity for future upgrades ; limited graphics card

HDD ISSUE RESOLVED

 

While my HDD did fail, my issue with my win7 product code was MY error. Thanks to the fine customer service by Joy Systems (Chris) my issue has been resolved and I am a very satisfied customer

Just as described

 

I ordered the computer on Sunday night, it was shipped Monday morning, I got it on Thursday. The computer came exactly as described. It works great, and for the price, you can't beat it.

Fast, and cheap

Not a very good graphics card
