HP Z1 27-inch AIO Workstation Review

HotHardware
12 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Mainstream All-In-One PCs have become increasingly more popular in recent years, but AIO workstations remain a rare breed. After all, workstations typically require more horsepower than your average AIO, and IT folks demand better access to a computer’s internals than most ordinary AIOs allow.
  • 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

CNET
12 September 2012
  • Summary: The HP Z1 Workstation isn't going to take pride of place in your living room, but if you're after a big-screen all-in-one PC with enough power to chew through any graphics tasks you can throw at it, the Z1 is definitely worth a thought.
  • Cons: expensive; high resolution isn't suited for normal office tasks; extremely heavy.

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.

  • Conclusion: HP prides itself on what they call the “Z-DNA”, which defines their workstation lineup. One aspect of this is the fact that all of HP’s workstations can be fully serviced without the need to remove a single screw. This is especially true of the Z1, where convenient green tags indicate what can be removed and replaced easily. From the power supply to the graphics card and hard drives, everything just needs a simple lift or pull and it comes right out without any hassles.

  • 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.
