Based on 265 expert and user reviews, HP has good reviews for its desktop computers. HP also has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core computers range compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
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 computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF. Across all the computers of this type and age the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 700MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many desktop computers that are a similar age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
+7 More reasons for
Six USB 2.0 Ports
Most computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Z230 SFF which has six USB 2.0 ports.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
Most desktop computers that have been available for more than a year have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots, including the Z230 SFF which has two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of similar spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 SFF range from 2GB to 520GB. At 32 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF.
Has One Memory Slot
The HP Z230 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
The heights of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF range from 9.8mm to 560mm, and the average height is 290mm. At only 100 millimeters, the Z230 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF.
6 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on PCs 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 you are looking for a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu W530 (£127.99) (SSD).
Very Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has one of the smaller internal memory amongst medium processor core computers of this age. Across all the PCs of a similar type and age to the Z230 SFF the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.8GB.
If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL 270 (£349.99) (6GB).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that came out more than a year ago.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the personal computers of this age and type the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 2.8GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF.
+3 More reasons against
Quite Small Processor Cache
The average processor cache of computers of this spec and age is 6.6MB. With a processor cache of only 6 megabytes, the Z230 SFF has one of the smaller processor caches amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.
Only Four Processor Threads
The HP Z230 SFF is a four processor thread personal computer. Most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the Z230 SFF have between four and seven processor threads.
