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

12 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average HP medium processor core personal computers have good ratings as do all personal computers produced by HP.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on PCs that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter base frequency of the HP Z240 of 400 megahertz is one of the fastest amongst medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Z240 is 350MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The HP Z240 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most new desktop computers. 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.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.

The worst storage speed across comparable types of computer is HDD.

We compared this computer to all the other SSD personal computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Z240[pl_3195872_price], the Z240[pl_3195874_price], and the Z240[pl_3223698_price] all from HP is also worth considering.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec computers that came out in the last year.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

Comparable spec computers that have been around for the last year have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,400MHz. With a memory clock speed of 2,133 megahertz, the HP Z240 has one of the faster memory clock speeds amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last year.

Chart Edit

Very Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

The solid-state drive capacities of medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last 12 months range from 32GB to 520GB. At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a very big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other computers that have been available for a similar time to the Z240.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

The smallest maximum internal memory of new medium processor core personal computers is 2GB, the biggest is 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 42GB. The HP Z240 has a fairly big maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) compared to most of the other newly released computers.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

The HP Z240 has a fairly big processor cache (8 megabytes) compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers. The processor caches of new similar spec desktop computers range from 2MB to 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the HP Z240 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Z240.

Chart Edit

DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this personal computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on new computers.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 1,333 megahertz, the HP Z240 has a fairly slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months. The slowest memory clock speed supported by processor of desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Z240 is 800MHz, the fastest is 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,800MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The HP Z240 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.7 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of new medium processor core personal computers is 8.5GB.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of comparable spec computers that came out in the last year is 6.4kg, and the weights range from 38g to 16kg. At 8.6 kilograms, the HP Z240 is quite heavy compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers.

4 Other reasons to consider the HP Z240

Released Over a Year Ago

This computer has been on the market for over a year.

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 3.3 gigahertz, the HP Z240 has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Z240[pl_3223698_price] (3.5GHz and cheaper), or the 440 MT[pl_3667234_price] (3.5GHz and cheaper) both from HP.

Average Internal Memory

The HP Z240 has a relatively average internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers.

If this PC internal memory is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Z240[pl_3223698_price] (16GB), or the 440 MT[pl_3667234_price] (16GB) both from HP which is also cheaper.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 512 gigabytes, the HP Z240 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that came out around the same time as the Z240.

We compared this computer to all the other 512GB total storage capacity desktop computers and we think the HP Z240[plb_3195874_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the HP 440 MT[plb_3667234_price] (1TB and cheaper).
