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

15 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

HP has good average reviews for its medium processor core personal computers as well as across its entire computer range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers that came out in the last year.

Chart Edit

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

Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Z240 only have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, however the HP Z240 has eight USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The HP Z240 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.4 gigahertz) amongst PCs of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Z240 have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3.4GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including cheaper computers such as the DELL 7040.

If you want a faster processor clock speed then you might want to consider the HP DWS BUNDEL Z240 SFF 4Core 3.5GHz CPU, NVIDIA K1200, 16GB geheugen, 256GB SSD (J9C03ET+T7T59AT) (3.5GHz and cheaper).

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The average internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Z240 is 7.9GB. The HP Z240 has a fairly big internal memory (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z240.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP Z240 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year. 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.

This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative SSD PCs currently available including cheaper personal computers such as the DELL 7040, or the Lenovo P310.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the recently released comparable spec desktop computers the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. When compared to other recently released medium processor core personal computers, the HP Z240's maximum turbo frequency of 4 gigahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many new medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Three DisplayPorts

The HP Z240 is a three DisplayPort computer. Most of the other new medium processor core personal computers have between one and three DisplayPorts.

Chart Edit

Eight Processor Threads

Most of the other comparable spec computers that were released around the same time as the Z240 only have between four and seven processor threads, however the HP Z240 has eight processor threads.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

The HP Z240 has a fairly big processor cache (8 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last 12 months. The average processor cache of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 6.7MB, and the processor caches range from 2MB to 10MB.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The HP Z240 has a greater number of memory slots than most new medium processor core personal computers. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on PCs that were launched in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year.

Chart Edit

Very Short

At only 100 millimeters, the HP Z240 is quite short compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Z240. Across all the newly released comparable spec desktop computers the heights range from 10mm to 560mm, and the average height is 280mm.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of desktop computers that were released in the last 12 months range from 32GB to 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 730GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other new personal computers.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 256GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including the DELL 7040 which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Alienware Steam Machine (1TB and cheaper).

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240 have between one and seven USB 2.0 ports, including the HP Z240 which has two USB 2.0 ports.
