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

Refurbishers are &#$$$

 

Whoever Newegg is using for refurbished computers should be replaced. They are not doing their job.

NONE WHATSOEVER

The computer failed right out of the box. It would not run 1 minute without going to a blue screen with an option to start in safe mode. After rebooting 8-10 times it was time to call it quits

Good stuff, wrong PC

 

Got this is a PC for my 16 yr old, upgrade from his older PC. Its great for what he does (in fact I have to help him install DOS BOX so he can play older games w/o issues). The only issue I had was that Newegg sent me the Intel version of this and not...

Good PC ; Good OS (Windows 7 64) ; Value for $$ is high

Sent the Intel version not the AMD

First one DOA

 

Only reason this is getting three stars is because Newegg was very good about resolving the issue quickly without any problems. Hopefully when the replacement comes in it will last longer than the 45 seconds the first one did.

Newegg was very quick and helpful to set me up with an RMA hopefully the second one will not be DOA

first one was DOA

Nice little desktop

 

None of the cons listed should be a surprise, as none were listed as features of the computer. Mine arrived spotless, as others have said, no dust inside and minimal scuffing on the outside. The keyboard and mouse that shipped with it were very cheap,...

Very clean inside, very quiet, nice to have a large hdd and 8 gigs ram, works well in a professional office, gigabit Ethernet, good price AND a warranty

No DVI output, no usb3, 240 watt power supply

Broken RAM

 

I'm disappointed, I always had good experience with newegg in the past. I now have 4GB of broken RAM and I was forced to order a new stick since I need to give this computer to a client whose still waiting. Definitely lowered my confidence in the...

The parts that do work perform fairly well, runs windows 7 smoothly once I replaced RAM

Broken RAM caused the system to crash while updating. It wouldn't start and Windows restore didn't work. I couldn't even complete a Windows installation without the computer crashing(same after replacing the RAM). I finally replaced the RAM with my...

HP 6005 Pro

 

One of the memory cards went south on me about a week after I purchased it. After some initial confusion on the part of Newegg, I was put in touch with Joy Electronics (people who refurbished the computer and they replace the defective memory card with...

As mentioned above, one of the memory cards failed after about a week of use but, as also mentioned above the refurbisher replaced the defective card with no hassle what so ever
