Based on 242 user and expert reviews, HP has good reviews for its computers. HP also has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Z230 MT has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,200 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. Desktop computers of this spec and age have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 640MHz and 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on computers of this age and spec.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many personal computers of a comparable age and type to it.
+3 More reasons for
Has One Memory Slot
The Z230 MT has a greater number of memory slots than most PCs of a comparable age and spec to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 MT.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it.
4 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
Across all the similar spec PCs that were released more than a year ago the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s. At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Z230 MT has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 MT.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
Across all the computers of this spec and age the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of only 32 gigabytes, the Z230 MT has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst comparable spec computers of this age.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many 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.
If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] (SSD).
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
The system bus data transfer rates of comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 MT range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s. The Z230 MT has one of the lower system bus data transfer rates (only 5 Gigatransfers per second) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
+1 More reason against
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 MT
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 MT has a relatively typical processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 MT.
If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the 400 G3 MT[pl_3343157_price] (3.4GHz), the 240 SFF[pl_3345413_price] (3.4GHz), or the 490 G3[pl_3355501_price] (3.4GHz) all from HP.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The HP Z230 MT has a pretty typical hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (2TB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 MT has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 MT.
Desktop computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (2TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Z230 MT has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
If this HP personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the 810-477na[pl_3402544_price] (12GB), or the 800 G2[pl_3797297_price] (16GB) both from HP.
