Review of the HP Z240 Workstation by Joe Herman
HP Z240 unboxing. A Look at HP's Z240 Entry-Level Workstation

12 Reasons For

HP PCs Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all HP computers and also specifically for HP medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases HP had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Very Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the HP Z240 has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average memory clock speed supported by processor of computers that were released around the same time as the Z240 is 1,500MHz, and the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This PC supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The HP Z240 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer. Most of the other desktop computers of this age and type have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed

The average memory clock speed of desktop computers of this age and spec is 1,800MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the HP Z240 has a fairly fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The HP Z240 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type amongst all similar spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Z240.

The worst internal memory type across comparable types of desktop computer is DDR3-SDRAM.

Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The HP Z240 has one of the higher system bus data transfer rates (8 Gigatransfers per second) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average system bus data transfer rate of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago is 6GT/s.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240 range from 2GB to 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 33GB. At 64 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a quite big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z240 is more than most similar spec computers that were released around the same time as it. This HP desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many desktop computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many similar spec desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as 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.

Other HDD computers currently available which you might want to consider include the Alienware X51 R2, or the HP ProDesk 600 G2 MT which is cheaper.

If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta (SSD and cheaper), or the HP ProDesk 600 G2 Mini (SSD and cheaper).

Quite Small Processor Cache

Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that were launched more than a year ago the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB. At only 6 megabytes, the HP Z240 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Z240.

Chart Edit

Only Four Processor Threads

Most PCs of a comparable age and type to the Z240 have between four and seven processor threads, including the HP Z240 which has four processor threads.

5 Other reasons to consider the HP Z240

Released Over a Year Ago

This desktop computer was released over a year ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.3 gigahertz, the HP Z240 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 3.3GHz processor clock speed desktop computers to this computer and we think the Fujitsu Esprimo E920 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the 800 G2 (3.4GHz and cheaper), or the 400 G3 MT (3.4GHz and cheaper) both from HP.

Average Hard Drive Capacity

With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z240 has a relatively typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Z240.

There are a number of other 1TB hard drive capacity computers currently available which you might want to look at including the Acer Veriton M6640G which is cheaper.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z240 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z240.

Alternative 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available that you might want to look at include the HP Z230, or the Acer Veriton M6640G which is cheaper.

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and type.

Alternative 8GB memory desktop computers currently available which you might also want to look at include the Alienware X51 R2 which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the HP 800 G2 (16GB) which is also cheaper.
