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

Hope to get another 3 yrs out of it

 

I work on these 6005 all day. Pretty reliable under normal use. Power supplies are the weakest fail point. All in all a great PC for everyday use. Add another 4 gb of ram to top it off.

i3 CPU, win7 pro

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.

 

Do not make the mistake I did and buy this PC in hopes to upgrade it, you will be enormously dissapointed.

Good while it lasted

 

4 months and dead. It will not boot just a flashing red light and 5 beeps which according to what I been able to find online could be anything from reseating the memory to a bad motherboard. Promised a year on parts and labor still trying to get it...

Great price and one year warranty on a refurbished unit

Died in four months and no clue as to who honors the one year warranty. Newegg puts that on the top of the features list but could not tell me what I need to do to get a repair or replacement. Still looking for answers so beware the warranty promise...

HP Compaq 6005 Pro (NE2-0029)

 

None

When I brought the PC the description said it came with 8gb. I checked with Win7 and the BIOS and it confirmed that it was only shipped with 4gb. I opened the PC up, and only had one stick of DIMM ram
