13 Reasons For
Based on 265 expert and user reviews, HP has good reviews for its computers. HP also has good reviews specifically for its few processor core PCs.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on latest few processor core PCs.
Only Released Six Months Ago
The 400 G2 was only relased by HP six months ago. Newer PCs like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.
4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This PC supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that came out in the last year.
Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of comparable spec computers that came out in the last year is 10GB/s, the fastest is 35GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 29GB/s. The HP 400 G2 has a fairly fast max memory bandwidth supported processor (34.1 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other latest comparable spec desktop computers.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 400 G2 has a faster storage speed than most comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it. This HP desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most recently released similar spec 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.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the 400 G2.
The worst storage speed amongst similar types of computer is HDD.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD desktop computers currently available including the HP Chromebox (£644.98), or the DELL Chromebox 3010 (£529.97) which is cheaper.
+8 More reasons for
Very Big Internal Memory
When compared to other few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the 400 G2, the HP 400 G2's internal memory of 8 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The average internal memory of computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 400 G2 is 4.6GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 8GB.
We compared all the other 8GB memory desktop computers to this PC and we think the HP Chromebox (£644.98), the Alienware Alpha (£541.03), and the Asus UN62 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Two Mini PCI Express Slots
The HP 400 G2 has more mini PCI Express slots than most of the few processor core PCs that were launched in the last year. Most of the computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 400 G2 only have one mini PCI Express slot, however this HP PC has two mini PCI Express slots.
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed
At 2,133 megahertz, the HP 400 G2 has a quite fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other new desktop computers. New few processor core PCs have memory clock speeds of between 1,300MHz and 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,700MHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The HP 400 G2 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most recently released similar spec computers. Most recently released few processor core PCs have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.
This PC's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type across all few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the 400 G2.
Across comparable types of PC the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.
Quite Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the HP 400 G2 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other new few processor core PCs. The smallest solid-state drive capacity of desktop computers that are a comparable age to the 400 G2 is 16GB and the biggest is 260GB.
The shortest similar spec personal computer that was released in the last year is 27mm high, the tallest is 500mm, and the average height is 220mm. The HP 400 G2 is quite short (only 34 millimeters) compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 400 G2.
4 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At only 950 megahertz, the HP 400 G2 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other computers that came out around the same time as the 400 G2. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of recently released personal computers range from 600MHz to 1,200MHz.
We checked 85 recently released similar spec personal computers and they range in price from £99 to £907. We think that this few processor core personal computer looks expensive compared to other recently released similar spec personal computers.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the HP 400 G2 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest few processor core PCs. Latest computers have total storage capacity of between 16GB and 2TB.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the HP 600 G2 SFF (£559.63) (500GB and cheaper).
Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 1,333 megahertz, the HP 400 G2 has one of the slower memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst few processor core PCs of this age. Across all the recently released personal computers the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 1,300MHz to 1,900MHz.
+1 More reason against
1 Other reason to consider the HP 400 G2
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP 400 G2 has a relatively average processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other latest comparable spec PCs.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the Alienware Alpha (£541.03).
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 600 G1 Mini (£531.36) (3.3GHz and cheaper), or the 600 G2 SFF (£559.63) (3.7GHz and cheaper) both from HP.
