19 Reasons For
On average HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings as do all desktop computers built by HP.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP 240 SFF is a eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year only have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the 240 SFF has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year is 8.5GB.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the 240 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 240 SFF is 1,100MHz.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the 240 SFF has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst computers of this age. The average processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year is 3.1GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
There are a number of alternative 3.4GHz processor clock speed computers currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper PCs such as the DELL 7040[plb_3074347_price], or the Lenovo P310[plb_3191100_price].
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP Z240 SFF[plb_3338320_price] (3.5GHz).
+14 More reasons for
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The HP 240 SFF has a quite big internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers that were released in the last year. PCs that are a similar age to the 240 SFF have internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB.
SSD Storage Medium
The 240 SFF has a faster storage speed than most new computers. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most recently released medium processor core personal computers have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all latest medium processor core personal computers.
The worst storage speed across similar types of desktop computer is HDD.
There are a number of other SSD desktop computers currently available that you might want to look at including the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny[plb_3169875_price] which is cheaper.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on recently released PCs.
The 240 SFF is a three DisplayPort personal computer.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed
The HP 240 SFF has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst computers of this age. Similar spec desktop computers that came out in the last year have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 2,000MHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The HP 240 SFF has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency (4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers that were launched in the last year. Across all the new PCs the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
At 64 gigabytes, the 240 SFF has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other computers that have been available for around the same time as the 240 SFF. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the 240 SFF the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB.
Eight Processor Threads
The 240 SFF is a eight processor thread computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 240 SFF only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Across all the recently released medium processor core personal computers the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB. With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the HP 240 SFF has one of the bigger processor caches amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP 240 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most new medium processor core personal computers. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
The HP 240 SFF is one of the shorter PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the 240 SFF (only 100 millimeters) amongst personal computers of this age. Across all the newly released medium processor core personal computers the heights range from 10mm to 560mm.
5 Reasons Against
£86.15 Price Increase
In the last 56 days the price of the 240 SFF has increased by £86.15.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the 240 SFF has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec computers that were released around the same time as the 240 SFF. The smallest total storage capacity of recently released comparable spec personal computers is 32GB, the biggest is 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 730GB.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 256GB total storage capacity personal computers currently available including the P310[pl_3192586_price], or the P310[pl_3192629_price] both from Lenovo which is cheaper.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP 600 G2[plb_3791240_price] (500GB) which is also cheaper.
The price range of desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months is from £81 to £2,147. We think that this desktop computer looks expensive compared to other desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
At only 1,333 megahertz, the 240 SFF has a fairly slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other latest similar spec PCs. Across all the similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 240 SFF the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz.
+2 More reasons against
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The 240 SFF is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer.
