Based on 265 expert and user reviews, HP has good reviews for its computers. HP also has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core computers range compared to other manufacturers.
Only Released Three Months Ago
This personal computer has only been on the market for three months.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers that have been available for a similar time to it.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 400 G3 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most PCs that came out around the same time as it. Most latest desktop 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 amongst all similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 400 G3.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.
+5 More reasons for
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 400 G3 is more than most medium processor core computers that came out in the last year. The most commonly supported case placement is Vertical, but this case placement is not supported by this computer. The case placements Horizontal are also supported by this personal computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Medium processor core computers that were launched in the last year have weights of between 38g and 23kg. At only 4.4 kilograms, the HP 400 G3 is quite light compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G3.
The widths of medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year range from 34mm to 7,100mm. At only 95 millimeters, the HP 400 G3 is quite narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 400 G3.
6 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The HP 400 G3 has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Recently released medium processor core computers have total storage capacity of between 32GB and 3.5TB.
If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the 600 G2 (£538.66) (500GB), or the 600 G2 (£579.99) (500GB) both from HP.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The HP 400 G3 has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec computers that have been around for around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this PC. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
Only One PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slot
The HP 400 G3 is a one PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot computer.
+3 More reasons against
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 400 G3. The average processor cache of newly released medium processor core computers is 6.8MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most similar spec PCs that were released in the last year have between four and seven processor threads, including the HP 400 G3 which has four processor threads.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.2 gigahertz, the HP 400 G3 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other recently released personal computers.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 600 G2 MT (£708.48) (3.3GHz), the 400 G3 (£788.40) (3.4GHz), or the 240 MT (£841.93) (3.4GHz) all from HP.
Average Internal Memory
The HP 400 G3 has a pretty standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 400 G3.
Illustrating that Intel doesn't quite have a 100 percent monopoly on processors to power Windows PCs, AMD still makes chips that we find in slower and less efficient budget laptops . The HP 255 G3... Read more…
