Conclusion: In spring 2010, Cadalyst Labs reviewed HP's then-new Z200 entry-level workstation. At the time, we wrote, "The HP Z200 has a lot going for it" and "is certainly worth your consideration." When HP offered us a chance to review the next-generation Z210 CMT, we jumped at it. And we were not disappointed; the Z210 CMT proves to be an excellent value. The HP Z210 CMT entry-level workstation offers a wide range of configuration opportunities.
Conclusion: The HP Z210 makes a perfect solution for any size business looking for a powerful desktop that is easy to manage, upgradable while providing significant performance. Features such as the Intel XEON Processor, 8 GBs of DDR3 ECC RAM and 160 GB SSD makes it a competitive value that can offer substantial savings in comparison to top of the line configurations.
Pros: Small Compact Design great for cramped spaces, Fast Storage Technology (160 GB SSD) – Would recommend investment in an external storage device with lots of capacity that supports the USB 3.0 interface to complement the SSD or consider sacrificing the All in one card reader for a secondary mechanical storage solution., Superior performance, EEC DDR3 RAM (8 GBs), USB 3.0 support, All-In-One Card Reader, Easy to service, Enterprise Management features built in, V-Pro, TP...
Cons: Limited expandability, Limited storage capacity, Graphics solution limited for heavy 3D work, discrete graphics solution recommended., USB 3.0 ports not working out the box (possible class driver issue with Windows 7)
