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

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...

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

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...

Disappointed

 

Disappointed to receive an unworking computer upon unboxing. This demonstrates that quality assurance is not a priority, and is a shock to a loyal customer.

None

Hard drive failure upon first boot

Best Bang for the Buck

 

Be sure to look at referbisher of any PC you purchase. Only some are Microsoft Certified and are loaded with real Windows 7 64 Pro. These folks offer a 3 year warranted free threw them...... not NewEgg paid for warranted.

Need up to date replacement system for (father-in-law) age 80. Still living in the dial up world. Fast little machine>>>supplied by there best Certified Microsoft computer Referbisher

Add does not say anything about the on board video chip set. I am replacing it with a low cost referb card (no fan) that has all three plugs for output to several devices. Not sure if its on board is VGA or SVGA. Newegg assistance folks were clueless....

Consumer review by:

We have noise

 

The system seems to be working fine. Hard to beat it for the price

But the fan is a real winner. May need to replace the power supply. The bearing is constantly letting you know its there.I'll take a look at it next weekend

Great PC for the price

 

Fast computer for the price, runs EQ1 & 2 without a problem with stock 4200 graphics chip, will upgrade to a video card to give the system more support, no problem on setup with windows, replaced a windows XP computer I built 7 years ago

Small Form factor, Nice & quiet, Athlon 3.0GHz CPU, 8GB Ram, 1 TB HDD(instead of 750gb), Win7 Pro 64 Bit, no cost for shipping and arrived in 1 day

No windows disk with this computer
