Based on 265 user and expert reviews, HP has good reviews for its desktop computers. HP also has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core computers range compared to other manufacturers.
Only Released Five Months Ago
This personal computer was only released five months ago. Newer desktop computers like this one are likely to have more advanced features.
Eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most of the other medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF only have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many latest medium processor core computers.
Eight USB 3.0 Ports
The EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has more USB 3.0 ports than most of the personal computers that were released around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF. Most of the medium processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF only have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, however this desktop computer has eight USB 3.0 ports.
Gold EPEAT Compliance
This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is the most frequently found EPEAT compliance on personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
+7 More reasons for
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been on the market for the last year.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that are a comparable age to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
Has One Memory Slot
The EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has a greater number of memory slots than most similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This HP computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on similar spec personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many new similar spec personal computers.
The average height of medium processor core computers that were released in the last 12 months is 300mm, and the heights range from 10mm to 530mm. With a height of only 100 millimeters, the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF is one of the shorter recently released medium processor core computers amongst medium processor core computers of this age.
5 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF range from 500MHz to 1,400MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,050 megahertz, the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies amongst personal computers of this age.
Very Small Internal Memory
Across all the medium processor core computers that are a similar age to the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF the internal memory range from 2GB to 32GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other latest PCs.
We compared all the other 4GB memory personal computers to this personal computer and we think because of it's better review score, the HP Z240 ($750.99) is also worth considering.
If this personal computer internal memory is too small for you then you might want to look at the 600 G2 (8GB), or the 600 G2 ($1,410.00) (8GB) both from HP.
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The average hard drive capacity of medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF is 940GB. At only 500 gigabytes, the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has a fairly small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF.
The EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF is a two USB 2.0 port personal computer.
+2 More reasons against
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 commonly supported Ethernet LAN data rate on PCs that came out in the last year.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that came out in the last year.
If this HP PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL T3420 ($834.72) (3.3GHz).
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 SFF has a fairly average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched in the last year.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Elite Slice (512GB), or the 400 G3 ($623.00) (1TB) both from HP or the Acer Veriton M2610 (1TB).
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core computers that are a similar age to it. 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.
PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the 800 G2 SFF ($1,025.47) (SSD), or the 600 G2 Mini (SSD) both from HP.
