19 Reasons For
HP Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
We checked 242 expert and user reviews for HP PCs and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core personal computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP 240 SFF has more USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports than most of the comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the 240 SFF. Most of the medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 240 SFF only have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however this desktop computer has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 240 SFF, the 240 SFF's on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 400 megahertz is one of the fastest. Latest medium processor core personal computers have on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of between 200MHz and 850MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 350MHz.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,150 megahertz, the HP 240 SFF has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the 240 SFF. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of new medium processor core personal computers is 1,100MHz.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
New medium processor core personal computers have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz. With a processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, the HP 240 SFF has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst similar spec computers of this age.
If this computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the HP Z230[plb_3288100_price] (3.6GHz).
+14 More reasons for
Quite Big Internal Memory
Medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months have internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB. The 240 SFF has a fairly big internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that were released around the same time as the 240 SFF.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 240 SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most latest PCs. Most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it 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.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all latest medium processor core personal computers.
Across comparable types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
Most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the 240 SFF have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the HP 240 SFF which has three DisplayPorts.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many new medium processor core personal computers.
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed
The HP 240 SFF has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. Recently released medium processor core personal computers have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,400MHz.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on new medium processor core personal computers.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The HP 240 SFF has one of the bigger maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) amongst PCs of this age. The smallest maximum internal memory of comparable spec desktop computers that were launched in the last year is 2GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 42GB.
Quite Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for the last year range from 2MB to 10MB. With a processor cache of 8 megabytes, the 240 SFF has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the 240 SFF.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the 240 SFF has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 240 SFF. The average maximum turbo frequency of latest medium processor core personal computers is 3.6GHz, and the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the 240 SFF is more than most latest medium processor core personal computers. This HP computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on recently released medium processor core personal computers.
10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This personal computer supports 10, 100, 1000, 10, 100, 1000, 10, 100 and 1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data transfer rates, which is the most commonly supported Ethernet LAN data rate on latest PCs.
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 comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.
At only 100 millimeters, the 240 SFF is quite narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year. The narrowest computer that has been on the market for around the same time as the 240 SFF is 34mm wide, the widest is 7,100mm, and the average width is 250mm.
3 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The 240 SFF has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. Recently released comparable spec computers have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3.3TB.
If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP 400 G3[plb_3785013_price] (500GB), or the Acer Veriton M2610[plb_3430067_price] (500GB).
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The memory clock speeds supported by processors of medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 240 SFF range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 1,333 megahertz, the 240 SFF has a very slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 240 SFF.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The 240 SFF is a two USB 2.0 port computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports.
