We calculated the average reviews for all HP computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 700MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 1,200 megahertz, the HP Z230 SFF has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst comparable spec PCs of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The Z230 SFF has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year. Most medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to 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.
This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all similar spec PCs that were released more than a year ago.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of desktop computer.
PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Zotac ZBOX PI320 (Flash), or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£99.97) (Flash) which is also higher rated.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable type and age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
+5 More reasons for
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The Z230 SFF is a six USB 2.0 port PC. Most of the other personal computers of a similar age and type to the Z230 SFF have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.
Quite Big Processor Cache
At 8 megabytes, the Z230 SFF has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Z230 SFF. Across all the comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.6MB.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the HP Z230 SFF is more than most computers of this spec and age. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on personal computers of a comparable age and spec to the Z230 SFF.
Medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year have heights of between 9.8mm and 560mm, and the average height is 290mm. The Z230 SFF is one of the shorter personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF (only 100 millimeters) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
2 Reasons 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 computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 4GB and the biggest is 3.6TB.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z230 SFF
Released Over a Year Ago
This HP computer has been on the market for over a year.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.3 gigahertz, the HP Z230 SFF has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the Z230 SFF has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire TC-705 (£626.99) (12GB).
