8 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

HP has good average reviews for its medium processor core personal computers as well as across its entire desktop computer range compared to other manufacturers.

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 that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Z230 SFF has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At 1.74 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the Z230 SFF. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF is 4.3GB, and the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

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 that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The Z230 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most personal computers of this type and age. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The heights of comparable spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year range from 9.8mm to 560mm, and the average height is 300mm. At only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 SFF is fairly short compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

With a max memory bandwidth supported processor of only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Z230 SFF has a fairly slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z230 SFF. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs of this type 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 you want a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] (SSD).

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

At only 500 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. Similar spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB.

If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the 600 G2[pl_3791095_price] (1TB), the 490 G3[pl_3355501_price] (1TB), or the 800 G2 SFF[pl_3768356_price] (1TB) all from HP.

Only Four Processor Threads

The Z230 SFF is a four processor thread personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate

Across all the PCs of a similar age and spec to the Z230 SFF the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 6GT/s. The Z230 SFF has one of the lower system bus data transfer rates (only 5 Gigatransfers per second) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 SFF

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this desktop computer was released.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.4 gigahertz, the Z230 SFF has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.

PCs with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the 810-477na[pl_3402544_price] (12GB), or the 800 G2[pl_3797297_price] (16GB) both from HP.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the Z230 SFF.

If this HP computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the 800 G2[pl_3797297_price] (1TB), or the 600 G2[pl_3791095_price] (1TB) both from HP.
