Supports Two Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 is more than most PCs of a similar spec and age to it. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the Esprimo Q520. The compatible memory card "MMC" is also supported by this computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago.
With a depth of only 188 millimeters, the Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 is one of the shallower desktop computers of this age and type amongst PCs of this age. The depths of personal computers that were released more than two years ago range from 33mm to 1,800mm.
The Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 is one of the lighter computers of a similar spec and age to the Esprimo Q520 (only 1.6 kilograms) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The average weight of comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Esprimo Q520 is 8kg.
The shortest medium processor core personal computer that has been on the market for around the same time as the Esprimo Q520 is 19mm high, the tallest is 560mm, and the average height is 280mm. At only 54 millimeters, the Esprimo Q520 is fairly short compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.
13 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Esprimo Q520 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer.
Very Slow Processor Clock Speed
The Esprimo Q520 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of desktop computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo Q520 is 1GHz and the fastest is 4.1GHz.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it. 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.
Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the Esprimo Q520 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the Esprimo Q520. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo Q520 the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.9GB.
Computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the Fujitsu Celsius W530 (£771.58) (8GB).
+10 More reasons against
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as the Esprimo Q520 is 790GB, and the hard drive capacity range from 250GB to 2TB. The Esprimo Q520 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
The Fujitsu Esprimo Q520 is a two USB 3.0 port computer.
Quite Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago that we have checked, the Esprimo Q520's maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of PCs of a comparable age and type to the Esprimo Q520 range from 1GB to 1.8GB.
Only One 5.25" Bay
The Esprimo Q520 is a one 5.25" bay computer. Most of the other computers that have been around for more than two years have between one and two 5.25" bays.
Only One DisplayPort
Most computers that have been available for more than two years have between one and two DisplayPorts, including the Esprimo Q520 which has one DisplayPort.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
Medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Esprimo Q520 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB. The Esprimo Q520 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The smallest processor cache of desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Esprimo Q520 is 0.51MB and the biggest is 10MB. The Esprimo Q520 has a quite small processor cache (only 6 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Esprimo Q520.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most PCs that have been available for a similar time to the Esprimo Q520 have between four and seven processor threads, including the Esprimo Q520 which has four processor threads.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
The Esprimo Q520 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies (only 3 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Esprimo Q520 range from 1.3GHz to 4.4GHz.
