HP medium processor core computers have good ratings on average and across all personal computers HP is one of the better rated brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the desktop computers of this age and spec 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 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a fairly big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Z230 SFF.
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most medium processor core computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the HP Z230 SFF which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 16 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF. The internal memory of comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 SFF range from 2GB to 64GB.
SSD Storage Medium
The Z230 SFF has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of this type and age. This personal computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most PCs of this age and spec 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 actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
The worst storage speed amongst similar types of desktop computer is HDD.
If the storage speed of this medium processor core computer is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash) which is also higher rated.
+9 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on similar spec computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it.
Four Mini DisplayPorts
The Z230 SFF is a four mini DisplayPort personal computer. Most of the other personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 SFF only have between one and three mini DisplayPorts.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
Across all the medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF the solid-state drive capacities range from 8GB to 1TB. At 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released one year ago.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
The Z230 SFF has a fairly big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF. Across all the personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 SFF the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 520GB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 SFF is more than most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly supported discrete graphics memory type on PCs of this age and type.
The average height of comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 290mm, and the heights range from 9.8mm to 560mm. With a height of only 100 millimeters, the Z230 SFF is one of the shorter desktop computers that were released one year ago amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
Desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the Z230 SFF have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 770GB. The Z230 SFF has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the DELL OptiPlex 3020 SFF (500GB).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
2 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when HP released the Z230 SFF.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 SFF has a fairly typical processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the Sedatech UC00725I3 (£510.44) (3.4GHz).
