HP Computers Have Good Reviews
HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all personal computers HP is one of the better rated manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers of this spec and age.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the Z230. Across all the personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z230 have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP Z230 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
The HP Z230 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst computers of this age. Desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Z230 have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB.
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the Zoostorm Intel Core i7-4790 Mini Tower[plb_2785392_price] (12GB) which also has a higher rating.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec PCs that were launched more than two years ago.
+8 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
Most computers of this age and type have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots, including the HP Z230 which has two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB. At 8 megabytes, the HP Z230 has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230.
Quite Big L3 Cache
The HP Z230 has one of the bigger L3 caches (8 megabytes) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. The smallest L3 cache of computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 is 2MB, the biggest is 10MB, and the average L3 cache is 6.9MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 is more than most computers that came out around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers of this type and age.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable type and age to it.
1 Reason Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on desktop computers of this spec and age. 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.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230
Released Over Two Years Ago
This desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the HP Z230 has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers that have been available for more than two years.
If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2880176_price] (3.3GHz).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 has a pretty standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Z230.
If you want a PC with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Alienware X51[plb_2177038_price] (2TB).
+2 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
The HP Z230 has a pretty typical total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable type and age to the Z230.
If this PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Alienware X51[plb_2177038_price] (2TB).
