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

13 Reasons For

HP Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

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

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on comparable spec PCs that came out in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed

The HP Z240 has a quite fast processor clock speed (3.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year. Across all the newly released PCs the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.

There are a number of alternative 3.4GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL 7040, or the HP Z240.

If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the 440 MT (3.5GHz), or the Z240 (3.5GHz) both from HP or the Lenovo P310 (3.6GHz) which is also cheaper.

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The HP Z240 has one of the bigger internal memory (16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. The average internal memory of new similar spec personal computers is 7.9GB.

Alternative 16GB memory desktop computers currently available that you might also want to look at include the Z240, or the Z240 both from HP which is cheaper.

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 launched 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 personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Z240.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other SSD computers currently available including the DELL 7040, the HP Z240, or the Lenovo P310 which is cheaper.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the similar spec PCs that were released in the last 12 months the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz. The HP Z240 has one of the fastest maximum turbo frequencies (4 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

When compared to other new comparable spec PCs, the HP Z240's solid-state drive capacity of 512 gigabytes is one of the biggest. The average solid-state drive capacity of newly released medium processor core personal computers is 210GB.

Chart Edit

Eight Processor Threads

The HP Z240 has more processor threads than most of the PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Z240. This computer is a eight processor thread computer compared to most of the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Z240 which only have between four and seven processor threads.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

At 8 megabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z240. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Z240 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 similar spec desktop computers that have been around for the last year. This computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on new medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many new medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Heavy

The lightest medium processor core desktop computer that was released in the last year is 38g heavy and the heaviest is 16kg. The HP Z240 is one of the heavier medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Z240 (8.6 kilograms) amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the HP Z240

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when this desktop computer was released.

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the HP Z240 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last year.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest desktop computers.

If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the HP 440 MT (1TB) which is also cheaper.
