12 Reasons For
HP Has Good Personal Computer Reviews
HP is one of the superior desktop computer manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and HP also has good reviews for its medium processor core personal computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Z230 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. Across all the desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 SFF has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.6 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers of a comparable age and type to it.
+7 More reasons for
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz, the Z230 SFF has a quite fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on computers of a comparable spec and age to it.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z230 SFF has more processor threads than most of the computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF. Most of the computers that were released one year ago only have between four and seven processor threads, however this HP personal computer has eight processor threads.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 SFF is more than most computers of this age and type. This HP personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago.
The average height of PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF is 300mm. At only 100 millimeters, the Z230 SFF is fairly short compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
6 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the Z230 SFF has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been around for more than a year. The max memory bandwidth supported processor of similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s.
Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The HP Z230 SFF has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 32 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of desktop computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 2GB, the biggest is 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age 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 would prefer a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] (SSD).
Very Small Internal Memory
The Z230 SFF has a fairly small internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF. The internal memory of computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB.
If this personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the 800 G2[pl_3702771_price] (8GB), or the 800 G2[pl_3797180_price] (8GB) both from HP.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.024 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst desktop computers of this age. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago is 1GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB.
Very Low System Bus Data Transfer Rate
At only 5 Gigatransfers per second, the Z230 SFF has a fairly low system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230 SFF. The lowest system bus data transfer rate of medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 5GT/s and the highest is 8GT/s.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
This computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 SFF has a fairly standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.
If this personal computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (2TB).
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z230 SFF has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
Personal computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the HP 810-477na[plb_3402544_price] (2TB).
