Three PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
Most of the other few processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago only have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots, however the Pavilion 500 has three PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
+7 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
Most desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Pavilion 500 have between one and five USB 3.0 ports, including the Pavilion 500 which has four USB 3.0 ports.
Supports Five Compatible Memory Cards
The Pavilion 500 has a greater number of compatible memory card than most personal computers of a comparable age and type to it. This PC supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by few processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Pavilion 500. The compatible memory cards "Memory Stick (MS)", "MS PRO", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this HP personal computer.
5.1 Audio Output Channel
This personal computer has a 5.1 audio output channel, which is the most commonly found audio output channel on similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on computers of this age and spec.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This desktop computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently supported discrete graphics memory type on personal computers of this age and spec.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for 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.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The discrete graphics adapter memory of computers of a similar age and spec to the Pavilion 500 range from 280MB to 2.1GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.6GB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte, the Pavilion 500 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Pavilion 500.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Pavilion 500
Released Over a Year Ago
HP released the Pavilion 500 over a year ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the HP Pavilion 500 has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Pavilion 500.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7020 (£214.80) (3.5GHz) which also has a higher rating.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Pavilion 500 has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the Pavilion 500.
Personal computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the HP ProDesk 400 SFF (£469.34) (1TB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Pavilion 500 has a pretty typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Pavilion 500.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo H50 (£325.10) (1TB), or the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£314.99) (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Pavilion 500 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
If you are looking for a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Aspire XC-605 (£557.95) (6GB), or the Aspire XC-605 (£423.67) (6GB) both from Acer or the Asus M32AD (£441.04) (6GB).
