We checked 242 expert and owner reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good ratings. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically within its few processor core computers range.

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 computers that have been on the market for the last year.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 350 megahertz, the HP 400 G2.5 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other few processor core computers that were launched in the last year. Across all the new comparable spec desktop computers the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 690MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 320MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The HP 400 G2.5 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,150 megahertz) amongst few processor core computers of this age. Few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G2.5 have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 790MHz and 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,000MHz.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec 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.

If you want a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the Chromebox 3010[pl_2672334_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242114_price] (SSD) both from DELL or the HP 400 G2[plb_3768563_price] (SSD).

8 Reasons Against

Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G2.5 have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the 400 G2.5 which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The 400 G2.5 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the 400 G2.5. The average max memory bandwidth supported processor of computers that have been around for around the same time as the 400 G2.5 is 30GB/s, and the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 21GB/s to 35GB/s.

Chart Edit

Only 4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

The 400 G2.5 supports a 4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version which is better than most PCs that are a comparable age to it. Most similar spec computers that were released around the same time as it support a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version.

This desktop computer's on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version (4) is in fact the worst supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version amongst all recently released comparable spec desktop computers.

A 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version is the best supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version across comparable types of desktop computer.
