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

Perfect for general office work!


I highly recommend these. I don't know where they're coming from, but keep 'em coming! Will be buying more as needed.

Smallish footprint, Win7Pro, 8GB RAM. Love these! We've purchased at least 4 in the last year and they are solid performers for generic office type work (web based interfaces, word processing, etc). Quick to set up ("bloatware" is minimal and quickly...

Haven't found any yet.

Perfect slim machine for tight work areas as a stand alone workstation.

Not for hardware upgrades.

Great Customer Service


These referbs are amazingly cheap and issues can be expected. However, Joy systems customer care was awesome. If you want to save a few bucks but are worried about getting stuck with a dud, don't worry. Joy Systems will take care of you and is a good...

Machine was exactly as advertised ; Had issues with 2 of the 5 machines and Joy systems overnighted me RAM for one and swapped the other so fast I hardly noticed the issue

While it would have been better to not have any issues, issues happen with referbs. Joy systems had my back so it does not really feel like their where any cons

Buyer Beware


I think New Egg should reconsider doing business with this manufacturer before they sell any more their product, at least until they start testing their stuff. It makes Newegg look bad. Just because the customer service and tech-support is excellent,...

For the price it is a nice running machine, compact with lots of features on the front and in the back. Eco-Friendly

Unfortunately, the computer is NOT TESTED, before the manufacturer sends it to you. The first one was sent back because it died. It was replaced by the manufacturer warranty which they were excellent about doing. However, the second one is doing the...

I thought it had a year warranty.. but, it only had 3 months???

only 1 pc still works out of 3 that I purchased

hard drive went out on one and the other power supply went out in less than 6 months

Others have noted the system will not work with Windows 8.1. I was successful at installing Windows 8.1 64 Bit as well as Windows 10 Home. Be sure to check for updates when you have fully installed your OS. Go to the manufacturer's site for driver...

Works out of the box! Absolutely no issues with the system I received. Very Happy. =)
