11 Reasons For

HP Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews

Medium processor core personal computers built by HP have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that HP also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on personal computers that are a comparable age to it.

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the Z230 SFF has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Across all the PCs of a comparable type and age to the Z230 SFF the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 4.3GB. The Z230 SFF has a quite big maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (1.74 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP Z230 SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most personal computers of this type and age. 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 across all medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 SFF.

The worst storage speed across similar types of desktop computer is HDD.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

With a solid-state drive capacity of 256 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a fairly big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z230 SFF. The smallest solid-state drive capacity of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z230 SFF is 8GB, the biggest is 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 200GB.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Express X1 (Gen 2.x) Slots

The Z230 SFF is a two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slot PC. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 SFF have between one and two PCI Express x1 (Gen 2.x) slots.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the Z230 SFF is more than most medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on desktop computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The shortest personal 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 HP Z230 SFF is one of the shorter desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Z230 SFF amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of desktop computers of this age and type is 840GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z230 SFF has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.

If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (£263.33) (500GB).

3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 SFF

Released Over a Year Ago

This personal computer has been on the market for over a year.

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 3.3 gigahertz, the HP Z230 SFF has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the HP 800 G2 (£554.59) (3.4GHz).
