10 Reasons For

Good Brand

HP has good average reviews for its many processor core personal computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range compared to other manufacturers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

The HP 840 takes more CPUs configuration (max) than most of the many processor core personal computers that came out in the last year. Most of the computers that were released around the same time as the 840 only take one CPU configuration (max), however this computer takes two CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Price Has Recently Dropped by £430.85

The price of the 840 has dropped by £430.85 in the last 21 days.

Very Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the new many processor core personal computers the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 1,300MHz to 1,600MHz. The HP 840 has one of the fastest memory clock speeds supported by processors (1,600 megahertz) amongst similar spec computers of this age.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

The HP 840 is a two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port desktop computer. Most of the other new PCs only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port.

Chart Edit

Eight USB 3.0 Ports

The HP 840 has more USB 3.0 ports than most of the desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 840. This PC is a eight USB 3.0 port PC compared to most of the many processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 840 which only have between four and seven USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Four 3.5" Bays

The HP 840 is a four 3.5" bay PC. Most of the other PCs that came out around the same time as the 840 only have between two and three 3.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The HP 840 has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. This HP desktop computer has an 8x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on recently released desktop computers.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 840 is 51GB/s, the fastest is 77GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 67GB/s. At only 59 gigabytes per second, the HP 840 has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other newly released many processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Only Two PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slots

The HP 840 is a two PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slot PC.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of many processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 840 is 13kg, and the weights range from 250g to 28kg. The HP 840 is quite heavy (21.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other newly released comparable spec computers.

Chart Edit

Very Deep

When compared to other many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 840 that we have assessed, the depth of the HP 840 of 525 millimeters is one of the deepest. The average depth of many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 840 is 430mm, and the depths range from 160mm to 550mm.

6 Other reasons to consider the HP 840

Released Twelve Months Ago

It was twelve months ago when HP released the 840.

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the HP 840 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other PCs that were launched in the last year.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] (64GB and cheaper).

Average Hard Drive Capacity

With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP 840 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other latest many processor core personal computers.

If you want a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] (2TB and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP 840 has a pretty standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been around for the last year.

If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] (2TB) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The HP 840 has an HDD storage medium which is faster than most latest many processor core personal computers. Most PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it have an SSD storage medium. 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.

We compared all the other HDD personal computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL Precision T7810[plb_3704050_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the Z440[pl_3194686_price] (SSD), or the Z640[pl_3351639_price] (SSD) both from HP.

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 2.4 gigahertz, the HP 840 has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.

If this many processor core personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP Z440[plb_3194686_price] (3GHz).

The Deskjet 840C incorporates PhotoREt II, ColourSmart III, and both USB and parallel connectivity, so youd be forgiven for thinking the £99 price tag was a misprint...
