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...

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...

There aren’t many reading this that need massive amounts of power for specific and often crucial tasks. But for those who do, and can afford the premium that a workstation demands, the Z420 is an excellent choice. While not as flashy as the machines...

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...

Great ACAD Workstation


We have replaced our Dell machines with These workstations. In comparison of like value and power, the HP significantly out performed in both value and processing speed. The only thing that would make these systems better, is a Solid State Drive.

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!

Solid workstation


After seeing the 1 star review, I had to chime in. We've used the xw series for many years and now use the z series. They have been utterly reliable. Yes, they are built like tanks, but that is a workstation design, not cutting edge, but good...
