10 Reasons For
HP Has Good Reviews for Its Personal Computers
We checked 242 owner and expert reviews for HP desktop computers and found that on average HP has good reviews. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core personal computers.
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The HP 400 G3 MT has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors (2,133 megahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The memory clock speeds supported by processors of similar spec desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,800MHz.
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 desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of new computers is 8.5GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the HP 400 G3 MT has one of the bigger maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP 400 G3 MT has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to it. This HP computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most desktop computers that were launched 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.
This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G3 MT.
Across similar types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year.
+5 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed
With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the 400 G3 MT has a quite fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other latest computers. Newly released similar spec desktop computers have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 2,000MHz.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on similar spec PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Three PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The HP 400 G3 MT is a three PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot personal computer. Most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers only have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many computers that are a comparable age to it.
7 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 400 G3 MT is 730GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.3TB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the 400 G3 MT has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
If this PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo E73[plb_3436638_price] (180GB), the HP 240 SFF[plb_3290411_price] (256GB), or the DELL 7040[plb_3755248_price] (256GB).
Quite Small Internal Memory
The average internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 400 G3 MT is 7.9GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 32GB. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the 400 G3 MT that we have checked the internal memory of, the HP 400 G3 MT's internal memory of only 4 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the DELL T3620[plb_3754038_price] (8GB), or the HP 800 G2[plb_3768592_price] (8GB).
Only Has One Memory Slot
The HP 400 G3 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this HP personal computer.
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
The 400 G3 MT has one of the smaller solid-state drive capacities (only 128 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the similar spec PCs that have been available for the last year the solid-state drive capacities range from 32GB to 520GB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 210GB.
+4 More reasons against
Only One DisplayPort
Most new desktop computers have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the 400 G3 MT which has one DisplayPort.
Quite Small Processor Cache
The processor caches of new comparable spec personal computers range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB. At only 6 megabytes, the 400 G3 MT has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the 400 G3 MT.
Only Four Processor Threads
The 400 G3 MT is a four processor thread computer. Most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the 400 G3 MT have between four and seven processor threads.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP 400 G3 MT
Released Eleven Months Ago
This HP PC was released eleven months ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the 400 G3 MT has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers.
If you are looking for a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the 600 G1 TWR[pl_3686792_price] (3.3GHz), or the 400 G3 MT[pl_3810816_price] (3.3GHz) both from HP.
