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

Consumer review by:

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

Bad Hard Drive

 

Had really no time to send this item back. It was for an office install. So I had to go out and purchase a new hard drive and reload windows. Maybe they can send me a new hard drive at least. will see...

Hah

None. Bad hard drive right out of the gate. Had it up and running for about 2 hours before the blue screens hit and the computer warned from bios that the hard drive failure was imminent

You have a 25% chance of getting a bad one

 

cheap enough when you get a good one.

Fantastic system when working properly

8 purchased for resale, 6 arrived working and ready to go, 1 complete DOA, 1 bad HDD, swapped drives on systems made bad hdd system good, have a beautiful doorstop that only cost me 270.00 ; These systems are not tested at all prior to going out the...

PureJunk

 

After wasting a months of week end trying to make what should have been a nice home computer. I have decided to never purchase refurbished junk from Newegg again. This is the second refurbished I have dealt with that came to me as non working items......

If there are any, I couldn't find them

It didn't work from the box. I spent 5 hours the first night trying to get it to boot up. Even reinstalled Windows several times with different versions. Still didn't work right. I contacted the compant that refurbished it. They sent me a replacement...
