Read the full HP Z1 review

The HP Z1 is a beauty of a 27in all-in-one PC. Not only is it meticulously built and the only one of its size and class to offer height adjustment, but it’s packed with connectivity and features like an adjustable 1080p webcam. It’s also the only AIO that’s fully upgradeable – in fact it’s easier to upgrade the Z1 than any other PC we’ve ever reviewed. All this is complemented by a gorgeous 27in, 10-bit, 2,560 x 1,440 IPS display and stunningly good speakers. Throw in its workstation certification, and it justifies its premium pricing.

Great review and great machine.

What's the noise level like on this? Seems to be a lot of fans in there.

Also, is there no mSATA slot on the motherboard. That would have been ideal to accomodate an SSD + 3.5" HDD combo

Thanks Qddy.

Noise level is very quiet indeed, around average for an AIO but certainly quieter than your average desktop PC.

Indeed. As I mention, the provision for two SATA drives is there, it's just a pity HP didn't use Z1's available space to let you go for an SSD plus 3.5in drive, and you have to use an SSD plus 2.5in combo instead...
