7 Reasons For
Average Expert Reviews
This computer received a rating of 75 out of 100 from desktop computer expert review website kuzniewski.pl.
DELL Computers Have Good Reviews
DELL has good average reviews for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire computer range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many computers of this age and type.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
+2 More reasons for
Across all the similar spec computers that have been around for more than two years the depths range from 33mm to 1,800mm. With a depth of only 67 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3030's depth is one of the shallowest amongst medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
8 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The OptiPlex 3030 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for more than two years. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD desktop computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 7020.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£521.19) (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 3030 is 800GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3030 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 3030.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity desktop computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 which is cheaper.
Quite Slow Hard Drive Speed
The hard drive speed of the OptiPlex 3030 of only 5,400 revolutions per minute is one of the slowest amongst similar spec personal computers that came out more than two years ago. Across all the personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3030 the hard drive speeds range from 5,400 RPM to 7,200 RPM, and the average hard drive speed is 7,100 RPM.
+5 More reasons against
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The OptiPlex 3030 is a two USB 3.0 port PC. Most of the other medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3030 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst desktop computers of this age. The smallest maximum internal memory of PCs of a similar type and age to the OptiPlex 3030 is 2GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 30GB.
Only Four USB 2.0 Ports
The DELL OptiPlex 3030 is a four USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of only 3 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3030 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of this age and type. Across all the medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3030 the processor clock speeds range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth considering include the Fujitsu Celsius W530 (£684.95) (3.3GHz and higher rated) or the Acer Veriton M2631G (3.3GHz and cheaper).
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3030
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when this computer was released.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3030 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of this type and age.
Alternative 500GB total storage capacity computers currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 7020.
Average Internal Memory
The OptiPlex 3030 has a relatively typical internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a similar time to the OptiPlex 3030.
There are a number of alternative 4GB memory PCs currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper computers such as the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£489.60).
Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£521.19) (8GB) which is also cheaper.
