The editor of PC Mag concluded that this personal computer was terrific and gave it their "Editor's Choice" award.
Good Expert Reviews
This computer received a rating of 80 out of 100 from expert review site PC Mag.
PCs manufactured by DELL generally have good ratings 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 comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.
Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor
Across all the many processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Tower 5810 the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 51GB/s to 68GB/s. At 68 gigabytes per second, the Tower 5810 has a fairly fast max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other many processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Tower 5810.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
Across all the PCs that came out around the same time as the Tower 5810 the internal memory range from 4GB to 64GB. At 32 gigabytes, the Tower 5810 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core PCs that were released one year ago.
+8 More reasons for
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, the Tower 5810 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst PCs of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of many processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Tower 5810 is 2.1GHz and the fastest is 3.5GHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is SSD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on many processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago. 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.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The Tower 5810 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most PCs that have been around for more than a year.
A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all many processor core PCs that came out more than a year ago.
Across comparable types of computer the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.
Six USB 2.0 Ports
The Tower 5810 is a six USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the Tower 5810 have between two and eight USB 2.0 ports.
Has One Memory Slot
The Tower 5810 has a greater number of memory slots than most computers of this age and type. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 8x DIMM are also found on this DELL desktop computer.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this PC is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many many processor core PCs that were launched more than a year ago.
Supports One Case Placement
The Tower 5810 has a greater number of placements than most personal computers of this type and age. The most commonly supported case placement is Vertical, but this case placement is not supported by this DELL personal computer. The case placements Horizontal/Vertical are also supported by this desktop computer.
5 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 120GB to 2.2TB. At only 256 gigabytes, the DELL Tower 5810 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Tower 5810.
Only One CPU Configuration (max)
Most PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Tower 5810 take one CPU configuration (max), including the Tower 5810 which takes one CPU configuration (max).
Only One Discrete Graphics Adapter
Most computers that were released more than a year ago have one discrete graphics adapter, including the DELL Tower 5810 which has one discrete graphics adapter.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
Across all the many processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Tower 5810 the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 2GB to 8.2GB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 4,096 megabytes, the Tower 5810 has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other many processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the Tower 5810.
+2 More reasons against
Only 12 Processor Threads
The Tower 5810 is a 12 processor thread PC. Most of the other personal computers of this spec and age have between 12 and 23 processor threads.
