13 Reasons For
HP PCs Have Good 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 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on PCs of this age and type.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The HP Z230 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,200 megahertz) amongst personal computers of this age. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers of this age and type is 3,200MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 850MHz to 860,000MHz.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Z230 SFF is a four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other computers of this age and type have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
Across all the desktop computers of this age and type the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB. With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has one of the bigger internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The HP Z230 SFF has a faster storage speed than most personal computers of a comparable age and type to it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of computer.
There are a number of alternative SSD PCs currently available that you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price].
+8 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a similar spec and age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on desktop computers of a similar spec and age 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 computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The Z230 SFF has one of the bigger processor caches (8 megabytes) amongst PCs of this age. Across all the computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 SFF the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.8MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The Z230 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of this type and age. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on personal computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
The heights of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF range from 19mm to 560mm. With a height of only 100 millimeters, the Z230 SFF is fairly short compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the personal computers of this type and age the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 710GB.
