HP Z1 27-inch AIO Workstation Review

HotHardware
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: There’s a lot to like about an all-in-one workstation. AIOs save space and reduce clutter in your work area. They’re also easier to move around – just pick it up and you’re ready to go. But maintaining and upgrading an AIO can be difficult, particularly if it’s not built with easy access in mind. The HP Z1 Workstation successfully juggles several balls. It provides solid performance for the price, offering serious power for under $3,500 .
  • Pros: Bright, 27-inch LED IPS display, Solid performance for content creation, Clean professional chassis, No bloatware
  • Cons: Last generation Bluetooth, Fewer USB 3.0 ports than some similar desktop models

Video Perspective: HP Z1 Workstation 27-in All-in-One System Review

PC Perspective
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: While consumers know HP for its substantial market share in the world of desktops and notebooks, perhaps more important to HP's bottom line is the company's server and workstation business.  While we all know what servers do there might be some confusion about what a workstation is and what it does.

HP Z1 Workstation Review

SlashGear
21 August 2012
  • Conclusion: This computer is a fabulous choice for an office in need of massive displays and Windows 7 (or Windows 8 later this year). You've got a perfectly solid build, HP has made the entire structure out of high-end components, and you'll be able to modify this beast to your liking well into the future.

All in, for the win

  • Excerpt: Computer workstations are typically regarded as PC powerhouses for the professional. Boasting top tier internals and reliability, they’re only limiting factors tend to be size or an inability to upgrade components. That’s now a problem of the past.

  • Conclusion: In the end, it's an easy recommendation: If you want an all-in-one workstation in your office, the HP Z1 is the only game in town. Oftentimes, a first-generation product has a few kinks that get ironed out by version 2.0. During our time with the system, however, we did not find the marriage of all-in-one and workstation an awkward one. The HP Z1 boasts a sleek design but is also easy to open for upgrades or repairs.
  • Pros: Sleek design, Professional-grade components, Easy-to-access internals for an all-in-one, Quiet operation
  • Cons: Rear ports are difficult to reach

  • Conclusion: The HP Z1 is a powerful workstation, which comes at a price. Our review unit, which can only be described as fully loaded, was priced at $5,673 (including the stunning 27" display). Visit HP's web site to price a custom configuration to your exact requirements — prices start at $1,899. In any case, don't forget HP's three-year limited warranty for parts and labor, with next-business-day on-site service available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

HP Z1 workstation review

Digital Arts
9 November 2012
  • Excerpt: While the Z1 sits within HP’s Z-series of workstations aimed at CG, VFX and video pros, this all-in-one is more for designers, photographers and illustrators – albeit ones with big budgets. HP has taken Apple’s iMac and upgraded many of its consumer-level components to create a computer that could even tempt many away from the Mac platform.
  • Pros: Great for image-based creatives; 10-bit display; fast chip; ECC RAM; easy to upgrade and repair
  • Cons: Glossy screen; not suitable for most CG or VFX work

HP Z1 review: This all-in-one workstation has a great screen, fast performance and is easy to maintain

Good Gear Guide.au
14 September 2012
  • Summary: The HP Z1 workstation is about as far from an unappealing old box as it gets. It has a neat, all-in-one design that houses high-end performance parts behind a beautiful, 27in panel and it's very easy to open up the unit to access all those parts. Definitely a desirable unit.
  • Pros: Performance, Screen, Design
  • Cons: Can be hard to manoeuvre, Rear ports hard to access
