HP Z420

 

The HP Z420 is a powerful, expandable workstation. It combines the power of a quad-core Intel Xeon processor with an Nvidia Quadro graphics to give you a powerhouse system that can grow along with your company.

Xeon power. Quadro graphics. Lots of expansion room. ISV Certifications. USB 3.0 on front and back. SSD C: drive with 1TB D: drive

No eSATA or Thunderbolt

The HP Z420 ($2,768 direct) is a mid-level single processor workstation from HP. It has a good measure of expandability backing up its liquid cooled Intel Xeon processor and Nvidia Quadro workstation-class graphics. It was a speedy performer on our...

HP Z420 Workstation Review: Competition Heats Up

 

Recently we had a chance to review Dell's Precision T3600, and we found it impressive. A company that seemed content to be an also-ran in the enterprise desktop space reinvigorated itself with smart new chassis designs to go along with the refreshed...

When I attended the Dell press event for their revised Precision line, one of the other journalists there essentially called Dell to the mat for playing second fiddle to HP, and asked what Dell was going to do to make up the difference. Given the...

HP Z420 Workstation review

 

Workstation computers are strange beasts: it's rare that someone more used to a traditional laptop or desktop will need them, or indeed, will be able to justify the extra expense. But for those who need massive amounts of performance for specific...

When it comes to desktops, I nearly always advocate building from the ground up for those with the skills to do so. the Z420 is the first machine that’s made me reconsider. The sheer ease of replacing components along with a truly amazing level of...

Review: HP Z420 Workstation

 

In a never ending effort to always improve, HP has released a new version of their Z workstations. These new workstations are the Z1, Z210, Z420, Z620, and Z820. HP was good enough to send me the Z420, which is their Price/Performance Leader, and I am...

HP has done a great job of filling this workstation with great components, but still keeping the price low. If you are looking for workstation for your office then I recommend you look at the HP Z line of workstations. With such a variety to choose...

HP Z420 E5-1620 256GB 16GB W7P DVR

 

All of our CAD workstations are from hp. With 32 GB of Ram, Xeon prozessor (8 core) and SSD they are procession extremely fast. The complete mashine is high quality. Very silent because of its watercooling system!

HP Handle in Top Optical Bay

 

Good machine, for a home system. I have a feeling that these should be able to last awhile without any hardware problems.

That woudl actually be a four core processor. i7 doesn't even come in oct. Good machine, but for home users. More of an awesome media and gaming rig than for business use.

HP Handle in Top Optical Bay

 

This computer is a beast. 8 core processor, 16GB RAM, 2TB hard drive. Excellent graphics card. My only issue that I have with this computer, is that the fan kicks on a lot and is very noisy. Going to look at the BIOS and see if I can turn it down.

Core i7-2600 3.4 GHz, 16GB RAM, 160GB SSD, Win7 64 bit. Paid about $1,800. Loads every program in about 1 second. Outlook maybe 5 seconds. Running multiple VMs for website development no sweat. I love it.
