11 Reasons For
Medium processor core computers built by HP have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just medium processor core computers) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
PCs of this spec and age have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 850MHz and 1,300MHz. The HP Z230 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,200 megahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of medium processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z230 range from 32GB to 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 720GB. The HP Z230 has one of the bigger total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as it.
+6 More reasons for
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z230 have between two and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the HP Z230 which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The HP Z230 is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot desktop computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Z230.
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 of a similar type and age to it.
The average height of PCs of this age and type is 280mm, and the heights range from 19mm to 560mm. The HP Z230 is one of the shorter personal computers of this type and age (only 100 millimeters) amongst comparable spec computers of this age.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers of a similar age and spec to 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.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 has a pretty average processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the ProDesk 600 SFF (£530.74) (3.3GHz), or the ProDesk 400 G2 (£516.00) (3.3GHz) both from HP.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the Z230.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the HP Z230 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the Z230.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP Z420 (8GB) which is also higher rated.
