We calculated the average reviews for all HP personal computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core computers and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.
11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This PC supports a 11.2 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many similar spec computers that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, the Z230 SFF has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst similar spec PCs of this age. The processor clock speeds of similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Z230 SFF range from 1GHz to 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
The average internal memory of personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Z230 SFF is 8GB, and the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB. The Z230 SFF has one of the biggest internal memory (16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
SSD Storage Medium
The Z230 SFF has a faster storage speed than most desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec PCs that were released more than two years 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.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core computers that were released more than two years ago.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across similar types of personal computer.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD PCs currently available including because of it's better review score, the Zotac ZBOX CA320 nano.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (Flash).
+9 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
The Z230 SFF is a two PCI Express x16 slot PC.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a similar age and spec to it.
Eight Processor Threads
The HP Z230 SFF is a eight processor thread desktop computer. Most of the other computers of this age and spec only have between four and seven processor threads.
Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity
The smallest solid-state drive capacity of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z230 SFF is 16GB and the biggest is 520GB. 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 have been around for a similar time to the Z230 SFF.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Z230 SFF is more than most personal computers of this age and type. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on comparable spec computers that were launched around the same time as the Z230 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
With a height of only 100 millimeters, the HP Z230 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other computers of this type and age. The average height of PCs of a similar age and spec to the Z230 SFF is 280mm.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of personal computers of this spec and age is 720GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 2.3TB. The Z230 SFF has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst similar spec computers of this age.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The Z230 SFF is a one PCI Express x1 slot desktop computer.
