HP Z240 SFF Workstation

 

The HP Z240 SFF workstation gives you speedy, ISV-certified hardware components in a desktop PC that fits in a compact cubicle. It's a quick system that'll work well for a growing SMB.

Compact form factor with some internal expansion room. ISV certified hardware. 32GB of memory.

Half-height PCIe card slots. Only mini-DisplayPort jacks on graphics card. Lacks Wi-Fi.

Conclusion The HP Z240 SFF is a fine choice if you need ISV-certified computing power for a small space. Because of its quad-core processor and more modest 3D graphics card, this system is better suited for tasks such as monitoring financial trends and...

HP Z240 Review

 

The HP Z240 has a powerful Intel Xeon E3-1240 v5 quad-core processor that has a high 10,177 PassMark score. The computer comes with 8GB of memory, which is comparable to the best business computers available in this price range. The hard drive has 1TB...

It has a great quad-core processor with a high PassMark score.

The 280-watt power supply unit isn't enough for installing additional components.

The HP Z240 is an excellent business computer with a high-end processor, a dedicated GPU and good memory.

HP Z240 SFF Workstation review

 

Impressive power and clever design inside a PC that's smaller and smarter than most desktop towers

Quad-core Xeon CPU is fast; Discrete Nvidia Quadro graphics; Smart, small design; Decent upgrade room and connectivity

Full-size towers are more versatile; Quad-core CPU may be limiting when using the most heavily multi-threaded applications

Good features and versatility combine with a small chassis and well-rounded specification. It’s an ideal system for cramped offices that need a bit more oomph

HP Z240 Tower review

 

HP Inc delivers on its promise of a low-cost but well-equipped workstation. What it lacks in high-end features it makes up for with quality physical design and nimble, reliable performance in tough tasks.

Smart chassis design, strong performance, range of business-grade OS options

Not as upgradable as other workstations

Consumer review by: Kurt2303 (hp.com)

Works really well, I only have one issue

 

This has everything I need but I wish it had at least one more SATA connector. I'm using RAID drives and I'm using two for SSD Boot drive, two for standard HD and I need at least one more for an optical drive. I ended up buying an external USB drive...

Consumer review by: ChrisSw (hp.com)

Outstanding machine - simple and powerful.

 

This was the best price for the highest performance desktop I could find. The upgradability (RAM, SSD) should give me a good many years of usage.
