HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings on average and across all desktop computers HP is one of the better rated manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers of this spec and age.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This desktop computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 3.5 gigahertz, the Z230 SFF has a fairly fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers of this spec and age. The average processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 3.1GHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
+6 More reasons for
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 two years.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The Z230 SFF is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 SFF is more than most medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on personal computers of this age and spec.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec.
The HP Z230 SFF is quite short (only 100 millimeters) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230 SFF. Similar spec computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF have heights of between 19mm and 560mm.
2 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many personal 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.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of similar spec personal computers that have been around for more than two years is 32GB and the biggest is 3TB.
If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Apple Mac Pro[plb_3816853_price] (512GB), or the DELL Tower 5810[plb_2930270_price] (1TB).
3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 SFF
Released Over Two Years Ago
This medium processor core desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 500 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF.
If you would prefer a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the DELL Tower 5810[plb_2930270_price] (1TB).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
Personal computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the Apple Mac Pro[plb_3816853_price] (12GB).
