We checked 311 expert and owner reviews for HP desktop computers and found that on average HP has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that HP has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 1.8GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of 1.74 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of this spec and age.
Three PCI Express X1 Slots
The ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has more PCI Express x1 slots than most of the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF. Most of the comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF only have between one and two PCI Express x1 slots, however this computer has three PCI Express x1 slots.
+6 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on similar spec personal computers that have been available for more than two years.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on personal computers of this age and type.
Has One Memory Slot
The ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on personal computers of a comparable type and age to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that came out around the same time as it.
The HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF is one of the shorter desktop computers of this age and spec (only 100 millimeters) amongst desktop computers of this age. Across all the computers that have been around for around the same time as the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF the heights range from 19mm to 560mm.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on PCs that came out 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.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Small L3 Cache
The average L3 cache of desktop computers that were released more than two years ago is 7MB, and the L3 caches range from 2MB to 10MB. The ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has one of the smaller L3 caches (only 6 megabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
This desktop computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a pretty average processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP ProDesk 600 (3.3GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
The ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a pretty typical total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (512GB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the Z640 (£3,313.51) (1TB), or the Z440 (£1,104.74) (1TB) both from HP.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the ProDesk 600 G1 SFF has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to consider the Lenovo P300 Tower (£771.89) (8GB).
