14 Reasons For
HP Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
HP has good average ratings for its medium processor core computers as well as across its entire computer range compared to other brands.
12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
The HP Z240 SFF supports a 12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version which is better than the 11 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version supported by most medium processor core computers that came out in the last year.
This desktop computer's on-board graphics adapter DirectX version (12) is actually the best supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version amongst all medium processor core computers that were released in the last year.
The worst supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version across comparable types of desktop computer is 11.2/12.
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Z240 SFF has more USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports than most of the comparable spec PCs that were launched in the last year. Most of the latest medium processor core computers only have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however this computer has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers that are a comparable age to it.
Just Released Six Months Ago
This desktop computer has only been on the market for six months.
£38.54 Price Drop
In the last 4 days the Z240 SFF has dropped in price by £38.54.
+9 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on new medium processor core computers.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on recently released medium processor core computers.
Most desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Z240 SFF have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the HP Z240 SFF which has three DisplayPorts.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240 SFF have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. At 4 gigahertz, the Z240 SFF has a fairly fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other newly released similar spec computers.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the Z240 SFF is more than most recently released desktop computers. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs that were launched in the last year.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on personal computers that were released around the same time as it.
The Z240 SFF is quite narrow (only 100 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240 SFF. Medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Z240 SFF have widths of between 34mm and 7,100mm, and the average width is 200mm.
2 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z240 SFF have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports, including the Z240 SFF which has two USB 2.0 ports.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on new medium processor core computers.
5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z240 SFF
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.4 gigahertz, the Z240 SFF has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for the last year.
If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Lenovo H50-50 (£699.97) (3.6GHz and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The HP Z240 SFF has a pretty standard hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available including the HP Z240 (£638.40) which is cheaper.
If you want a personal computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to consider the 550-270na (£679.95) (2TB), or the 550-170na (£619.98) (2TB) both from HP which is also cheaper.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z240 SFF has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were released in the last year.
We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity personal computers to this computer and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the Acer Aspire XC-710 (£594.51) is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the 550-270na (£679.95) (2TB), or the 550-170na (£619.98) (2TB) both from HP which is also cheaper.
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
The Z240 SFF has a relatively typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the Z240 SFF.
If this desktop computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the HP 550-270na (£679.95) (12GB and cheaper).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched in the last year. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
We compared all the other HDD desktop computers to this desktop computer and we think the 490 G3 (£609.97), and the 240 SFF (£770.28) both from HP or the Alienware Steam Machine (£509.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the 800 G2 SFF (SSD), the 600 G2 (£799.63) (SSD), or the Z240 SFF (£939.75) (SSD) all from HP.
