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

Update/More info

 

If you want to upgrade/modify this unit you'll need a few basic tools and some experience building/upgrading PCs.

The HDD died completely before I got a chance to transfer over my data. So I needed an OS disc. I emailed the refurbishing company (Joy Systems) and politely explained the issue and gave them the number they put on the back of the unit. I told them...

It's a low profile unit - I knew that getting into it and I had zero problems. But some people might not realize that this limits your options when it comes to slapping in new hardware, and may require extra-thoughtful selection of components. Thermal...

Worked well upon arrival. Good price

Power supply was shot after about a month. Cheap parts

Consumer review by:

Good value overall, questionable HDD condition

 

Still worth it, other than the HDD the hardware and software was well worth the money.

Reasonably decent business-class hardware. All the important components were clean and function great. I slapped in a low-profile graphics card and boom, decent inexpensive first computer for a kid. It's got 8GB of RAM - somewhat slow memory, but with...

The 2TB HDD included was, predictably, an ailing unit. After a month it began to exhibit some strange behavior. Sure enough, I had to start relocating sectors en masse. I'm going to transfer everything to a relatively small SSD (120GB) since they don't...

Great Case

 

Excellent price if you get a good one; very nice machine

Except when you don't ; Constant blue-screens after a few months. Some of the included factory restore/repair files were corrupted, so had to reinstall windows from DVD. No luck, still blue-screens. Seems to be an issue with the sata controller

Just how much does it cost to make an install disk or at least fill the restore partition with software the would allow the user to make a install/repair disk? Replacing the optical drive and the hours spent trying to clone the drive have turned a good...

This is a great computer, well engineered for ease of mechanical maintenance ; It is small, quiet and has enough power for all but serious gaming

My unit came with a DVD Reader, not a writer. There is not a install disk. The restore partition is empty and so is the system partition. If something should happen to the main drive, well good luck. It does not want to boot from a drive in a dock...
