Based on 242 expert and owner reviews, HP has good reviews for its computers. HP also has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core personal computers compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
At 1,200 megahertz, the Z230 SFF has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs of this type and age is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz.
Fairly Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
At 1.74 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230 SFF the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB.
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 PCs of this spec and age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 8.3GB.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the HP 440 MT (32GB) which also has a higher rating.
SSD Storage Medium
The Z230 SFF has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of this age and spec. This HP desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most similar spec personal computers that were released one year ago 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.
This PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of PC.
+10 More reasons for
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 desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The HP Z230 SFF is a six USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other PCs of a comparable age and type to the Z230 SFF have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots
The Z230 SFF is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.
Four USB 3.0 Ports
Most medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z230 SFF have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the Z230 SFF which has four USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of PCs of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF range from 2GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. The Z230 SFF has a quite big maximum internal memory (32 gigabytes) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230 SFF.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Z230 SFF is more than most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
The shortest computer of a comparable type and age to the Z230 SFF is 9.8mm high and the tallest is 560mm. With a height of only 100 millimeters, the Z230 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other PCs that were launched around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 256 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF. The total storage capacity of PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF range from 4GB to 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 840GB.
If you want a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Fujitsu D556 (£351.47) (500GB).
1 Other reason to consider the HP Z230 SFF
Average Processor Clock Speed
The HP Z230 SFF has a pretty standard processor clock speed (3.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the Z230 SFF.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the HP 800 G2 (£554.59) (3.4GHz).
