We checked 265 user and expert reviews for HP computers and found that on average HP has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that HP has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core computers range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on desktop computers of this type and age.
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 personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on similar spec computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most commonly found optical drive type on desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to it.
+3 More reasons for
The average weight of computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF is 7.6kg. The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF is quite light (only 4.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other computers of a comparable spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF.
With a height of only 95 millimeters, the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF is quite short compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable age and type to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF. The average height of medium processor core computers that were released one year ago is 290mm, and the heights range from 9.8mm to 560mm.
8 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that were launched more than a year ago have between one and eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and spec. 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.
If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This personal computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly supported on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on desktop computers that came out around the same time as it.
Only Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF is more than most computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this personal computer.
+5 More reasons against
Only One 3.5" Bay
The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF is a one 3.5" bay computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a similar spec and age to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF have between one and seven 3.5" bays.
Only Two USB 3.0 Ports
Most computers of this age and spec have between one and eight USB 3.0 ports, including the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF which has two USB 3.0 ports.
Quite Small Processor Cache
Across all the similar spec PCs that were launched more than a year ago the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB. At only 6 megabytes, the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released one year ago.
Only One PCI Express X16 Slot
Most desktop computers of this age and spec have one PCI Express x16 slot, including the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF which has one PCI Express x16 slot.
4 Other reasons to consider the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3 gigahertz, the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF.
If you would prefer a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the DELL 270 (3.1GHz and cheaper).
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a relatively typical hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF.
There are a number of alternative 1TB hard drive capacity PCs currently available that you might also want to consider including the Acer Aspire XC-705 which is cheaper.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a pretty typical total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF.
We compared this computer to all the other 1TB total storage capacity personal computers and we think the Acer Aspire XC-705 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
+2 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
The ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF has a relatively standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other computers of a similar type and age to the ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF.
We compared this computer to all the other 8GB memory computers and we think the Asus K31AD which is cheaper is also worth considering.
