HP EliteBook 840 G4 – What is the best display option?

 

Better with IPS! We already reviewed the new HP EliteBook 840 G4. One of the biggest issues of the 14-inch business laptop is the TN panel with its limited viewing angles. We now had the chance to check two optional IPS screens.

One thing is certain after we tested three different panels: You should definitely select an IPS screen if you are interested in the HP EliteBook 840 G4. The TN panel is a bit brighter, but the IPS models are superior in terms of black value and...

HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD) Laptop Review

 

Hardly any changes. HP now ships its business notebooks with Kaby Lake processors as well, but the rest is pretty much unchanged. This is also the case for the display, which is quite bright, but it disappoints in all other areas.

sturdy chassis ; low emissions ; comprehensive security features ; LTE modem ; good performance ; 3-year warranty ; good input devices

TN display with strong blue cast and very limited viewing angles ; no Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C Gen.2 ; slight creaking sounds from the hinges

The new HP EliteBook 840 G4 is basically just a Kaby Lake update of the previous G3 model. Both the size and the quality of the case still hold up well against the competition, only some issues like the creaking hinges or the clattery dedicated...

Recensione completa del portatile HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD)

 

Difficile riscontrare cambiamenti. HP ora ha dotato la sua linea business di processori Kaby Lake, ma il resto è praticamente invariato. Ciò vale anche per il display, ben luminoso, ma è deludente in tutto il resto.

telaio robusto ; emissioni contenute ; buone funzioni di sicurezza ; modem LTE ; buone prestazioni ; 3 anni di garanzia ; buoni dispositivi di input

display TN con alone bluastro e angoli di visualizzazione limitati ; mancanza di Thunderbolt 3 o USB-C Gen. 2 ; qualche scricchiolio proveniente dalle cerniere

Il nuovo HP EliteBook 840 G4 è praticamente un aggiornamento a Kaby Lake del precedente modello G3. Dimensioni e qualità del telaio tengono ancora il passo della concorrenza, e la buona impressione generale è toccata solo dagli scricchiolii delle...

Kısa inceleme: HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD) Laptop

 

Pek bir değişiklik yok. HP iş cihazlarını da artık Kaby Lake işlemcilerle sunuyor. Ama bunun dışında pek bir değişiklik yok.

Sağlam kasa ; Düşük emisyonlar ; Geniş güvenlik özellikleri ; LTE modem ; İyi performans ; 3 yıl garanti ; İyi arayüzler

TN ekranda mavilik çok fazla ve bakış açıları sınırlı ; Thunderbolt 3 veya USB-C Gen. 2 yok ; Ekran menteşelerinde az da olsa çıtırdama sesleri

Yeni HP EliteBook 840 G4 eski G3 modelinin aslında sadece Kaby Lake güncellemesi. Boyut, kasa kalitesi vs. gibi tüm bileşenler halen rekabete karşı iyi durumda. Sadece ekran menteşelerinden gelen çıtırdama sesleri ve harici touchpad tuşlarının sesleri...

Breve Análise do Portátil HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD)

 

Quase sem alterações. A HP agora também lança seus portáteis empresariais com processadores Kaby Lake, mas o resto permanece quase igual. Este também é o caso para a tela, que é bastante brilhante, mas decepciona em todas as outras áreas.

Chassi resistente ; Baixas emissões ; Amplos recursos de segurança ; Modem LTE ; Bom desempenho ; 3 anos de garantia ; Bons dispositivos de entrada

Tela TN com forte tonalidade azul e ângulos de visão muito limitados ; Sem Thunderbolt 3 ou USB-C Gen.2 ; Sons de rangidosdas dobradiças

O novo HP EliteBook 840 G4 é basicamente apenas uma atualização Kaby Lake do anterior modelo G3. Tanto o tamanho quanto a qualidade da carcaça ainda se defendem bem da concorrência, somente alguns problemas como as dobradiças rangentes ou os...

Kort testrapport HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD) Laptop

 

Weinig verandering. HP verkoopt hun zakelijke notebooks nu ook met Kaby Lake processoren, terwijl de rest vrijwel onveranderd is gebleven. Dit geldt ook voor het beeldscherm, dat ondanks de hoge helderheid ons teleurstelt op veel vlakken.

Stevige behuizing ; Lage emissies ; Uitgebreide beveiligingsmogelijkheden ; LTE modem ; Goede prestaties ; 3 jaar garantie ; Goede invoerapparaten

TN beeldscherm heeft sterke blauwe tint en beperkte kijkhoeken ; Geen Thunderbolt 3 of USB-C Gen.2 ; Licht krakend geluid van de scharnieren

Voor het volledige, Engelse testrapport, klik hier. Goede behuizing, degelijke prestaties, lage emissies - de vierde generatie van de HP EliteBook 840 zou een uitstekende zakelijke laptop kunnen zijn. Dit wordt alleen verhinderd door het slechte TN...

Análisis completo del HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD)

 

Sin apenas cambios. HP ahora equipa a sus portátiles business con procesadores Kaby Lake, pero el resto es básicamente lo mismo. También es el caso del display, que es bastante brillante, pero decepciona en las demás áreas.

chasis resistente ; bajas emisiones ; amplias características de seguridad ; LTE ; buen rendimiento ; 3 años de garantía ; buenos dispositivos de entrada

display TN con fuerte tinte azul y muy poco ángulo de visión ; ni Thunderbolt 3 ni USB-C Gen.2 ; ligero crujido de las bisagras

El nuevo HP EliteBook 840 G4 es básicamente una actualización Kaby Lake del anterior G3. Tanto el tamaño como la calidad de la carcasa siguen aguantando bien ante la competencia, sólo algunos pequeños problemas como las bisagras que crugen o los...

Краткий обзор ноутбука HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD)

 

Почти не изменился. HP обновила свою серию бизнес-ноутбуков процессорами Kaby Lake, на этом существенные изменения закончились. К тому же дисплей не может похвастать ничем, кроме яркости.

Прочный корпус ; Низкий уровень шума ; Комплексные функции безопасности ; Есть LTE-модем ; Хорошая производительность ; Удобные устройства ввода ; 3-х летняя гарантия

TN-дисплей с узкими углами обзора и голубоватым оттенком изображения ; Нет Thunderbolt 3 или USB Type-C Gen 2 ; Слегка скрипят петли

Новый HP EliteBook 840 G4 является простым обновлением до Kaby Lake. Размеры и качество корпуса все так же держатся молодцом, разве что некоторые моменты, в числе которых поскрипывающие петли и неоднозначный тачпад, несколько портят хорошее впечатление...

Test HP EliteBook 840 G4 (Core i5, Full-HD) Laptop

 

Kaum Veränderungen. Auch HP liefert seine Business-Notebooks jetzt mit Kaby-Lake-Prozessoren aus, doch ansonsten hat sich nicht viel getan. Das gilt nach wie vor auch für das Display, welches zwar recht hell ist, in allen anderen Disziplinen aber...

stabiles Gehäuse ; geringe Emissionen ; umfangreiche Sicherheitsausstattung ; lange Akkulaufzeiten ; LTE-Modem ; gute Leistung ; 3 Jahre Garantie ; gute Eingabegeräte

TN-Bildschirm mit starkem Blaustich und sehr eingeschränkten Blickwinkeln ; kein Thunderbolt 3 oder USB-C Gen. 2 ; leichtes Knarzen der Scharniere

Das aktualisierte HP EliteBook 840 G4 ist praktisch nur ein Kaby-Lake-Update des letztjährigen G3-Modells. Sowohl die Größe als auch die Qualität des Gehäuses können sich aber nach wie vor mit den Konkurrenten messen, lediglich einige leichte Mängel...

Test: HP EliteBook 840 G4 (7200U, Full HD) (sammanfattning)

 

Inte mycket nytt på HP-fronten. Vi testar nya HP EliteBook 840 G4 – en företagsdator med Kaby Lake-processorer, men i övrigt få förändringar jämfört med tidigare modeller. Detsamma häller skärmen, som är relativt ljusstark men misslyckas med att...

stabilt chassi ; låga temperaturer/fläktljud ; bra säkerhetsfunktioner ; LTE-modem ; bra prestanda ; tre års garanti ; bra inmatningsenheter

TN-skärm med kraftig blåton och mycket begränsade betraktningsvinklar ; ej Thunderbolt 3 eller USB-C Gen.2 ; knarrar något från gångjärnen
