13 Reasons For
HP Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
On average HP medium processor core computers have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all desktop computers produced by HP.
12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
The HP 400 G3 supports a 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version which is better than most desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months. Most new medium processor core computers support an 11 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version.
A 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is in fact the best supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version across all PCs that were released around the same time as the 400 G3.
Across comparable types of desktop computer the worst supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version is 11.2/12.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on latest medium processor core computers.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 400 G3 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most PCs that were released in the last 12 months. Most recently released medium processor core 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 in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the 400 G3.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of PC.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other SSD desktop computers currently available including the 600 G2 (£348.47), or the 400 G3 SFF (£369.99) both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 7020 (£669.64) which is cheaper.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This PC has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Supports One Case Placement
The number of placements supported by the HP 400 G3 is more than most comparable spec personal computers that came out around the same time as it. The most frequently supported case placement is Vertical, but this case placement is not supported by this desktop computer. The case placements Horizontal are also supported by this HP computer.
+8 More reasons for
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The slowest maximum turbo frequency of recently released medium processor core computers is 1.8GHz, the fastest is 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the HP 400 G3 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst similar spec computers of this age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP 400 G3 has more processor threads than most of the comparable spec personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months. This desktop computer is a eight processor thread PC compared to most of the newly released medium processor core computers which only have between four and seven processor threads.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
With a weight of only 4.4 kilograms, the HP 400 G3 is one of the lighter medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year amongst similar spec computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the 400 G3 the weights range from 38g to 23kg, and the average weight is 7kg.
The narrowest similar spec PC that came out in the last year is 34mm wide and the widest is 7,100mm. With a width of only 95 millimeters, the HP 400 G3 is quite narrow compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 400 G3.
7 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The average total storage capacity of similar spec desktop computers that have been available for the last year is 810GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.5TB.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 128GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 (£669.64), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny (£349.00) which is cheaper.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth looking at include the HP 400 G3 SFF (£369.99) (256GB) which is also cheaper.
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the 400 G3. Comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the 400 G3 have internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB, and the average internal memory is 8.1GB.
Personal computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the 600 G2 (£579.99) (8GB), or the 600 G2 (£348.47) (8GB) both from HP which is also cheaper.
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
At only 1,333 megahertz, the HP 400 G3 has a quite slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other recently released similar spec computers. The memory clock speeds supported by processors of similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 400 G3 range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The HP 400 G3 has a greater number of memory slots than most new medium processor core computers. 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.
+4 More reasons against
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 commonly supported Ethernet LAN data rate on comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
At only 128 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 has a quite small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the 400 G3. Recently released computers have solid-state drive capacities of between 8GB and 520GB.
Only One PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slot
The HP 400 G3 is a one PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot computer. Most of the other new medium processor core computers have between one and two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3
Released Eleven Months Ago
This medium processor core computer has been on the market for eleven months.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the HP 400 G3 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other new comparable spec personal computers.
