HP EliteBook 840 G3 Notebook Review

Sebastian Jentsch (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 04/26/2016

Just missed. With the third generation 840-series EliteBooks, HP has big ambitions aiming to compete with the best lightweight business notebooks. But there is a problem that already has a traditional link with the manufacturer. 
Update 04/18/2016: Excellent WQHD panel

 
HP EliteBook 840 G3 – HP unfortunately still uses a TN panel. Still a perfect worker?
HP EliteBook 840 G3 – HP unfortunately still uses a TN panel. Still a perfect worker?

For the original German review, see here.

After the review of the 14-inch Latitude E7470, which scored a very good 89%, we continue with one of the biggest rivals: The EliteBook 840 G3 is HP's answer to Dell's business Ultrabook. A look at the final score immediately shows: 87%, so Dell has the upper hand in terms of build quality and choice of components. Why does the EliteBook 840 G3 miss a very good rating? Read on to find out.

Rivals for the EliteBook are the ThinkPad T450s (1300 Euros/~$1477) or T460s respectively, the Latitude E7470 (2300 Euros/~$2614) and the Acer TravelMate P645 (1329 Euros/~$1510). HP also offers the Ultrabook HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G3 (2000 Euros/~$2273), which is currently under review. Our test model of the 840 G3 is not defined as an Ultrabook, but HP also offers a touch version for a small premium. 1500 Euros (~$1704) is the online price for our version, T9X59ET#ABD, with a Core i7-6500U, 256 GB SSD and FHD panel. Not a bargain, but not too expensive compared with the mentioned rivals (review configurations), either.

We will find out why the EliteBook 840 G3 can meet high requirements on the one hand, but also fails to meet its own goals in some areas.

Update 04/18/2016: Excellent WQHD panel

The HP EliteBook 840 G3 turned out to be a versatile business notebook, but it was not a fully convincing package with the TN panel (1920 x 1080). Now we had the chance to test the version with the WQHD panel (non-touch, T9X23ET#ABD) and we are impressed. All the information is available in the sections DisplayBattery Runtime and Verdict.

Case

No flaws here, which is true for many parts of the chassis. The 14-inch notebook is surprisingly light, but 1.58 kilograms (~3.5 lb) is still easily beaten by the EliteBook Folio 1040 G3 (1.4 kg/~3.1 lb). The real rivals ThinkPad T450s (1.8 kg/~4 lb) and Dell Latitude 14 E7470 (1.7 kg/~3.7 lb) on the other hand are much heavier. One of the main reasons is the lower battery capacity of the 840 G3 (46 Wh); Latitude and T450s come with 55 and 96 Wh modules, respectively, so the weight difference would be very small with similar batteries.

The base is made of plastics, only the silver top of the base unit has a painted aluminum finish. The former is solid and torsion-resistant, while the latter provides a cool tactile feel for the hands. All the keys are well-integrated, which ensure a firm and hard key stroke. 

The lid is very thin, somewhat flexible and the hinges are smooth. Pressure on the frame will result in pressure points on the screen. This can be particularly noticeable when handling the notebook at the upper frame, where TFT is probably connected too tightly to the frame. Pressure on the back of the lid does not create ripples on the screen. You can easily open the lid with one hand, but it is still well-adjusted so there is no bouncing. However, the lid will open to its maximum angle of around 145 degrees when you carry it around.

Connectivity

HP has implemented a modern USB Type-C port 3.1, but only Gen. 1, which is a typical USB 3.0 in terms of performance with another connector. DisplayPort or Thunderbolt are not supported by the port and you cannot use it to charge the device via USB Type-C. But there is no reason to moan, because you also get a full-size DisplayPort. This is rare since most notebooks – if at all –come with only a Mini-DisplayPort. The UltraSlim docking station, where you can put the 840 G3 on, comes with all the necessary ports including VGA d-Sub, DisplayPort or 4x USB 3.0. The dock retails for 140 to 150 Euros (~$159 to ~$170).

We use our Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II reference SD card to check the performance of the card reader. The maximum transfer rate is up to 83.6 MB/s when you copy large files, while typical jpg-pictures (~5 MB each) are transferred at 61 MB/s. These are average results that we can see from many card readers.

Communication

Thanks to Ethernet (1 Gbps) and Dual-Band Wireless-AC 8260 as well as Bluetooth 4.1, you should not have any problems to establish wired or wireless connections. The Wi-Fi module supports Wireless Display, but the antennas do not seem to be as good as the recently reviewed Latitude E7470. The connection dropped at around 35 meters (~115 ft; outside the building) to the router (Fritz!Box 7490 AC). The E7470 still had a connection at 50 to 60 meters (~164 to 197 ft) in the same environment. An LTE modem is an optional extra, and the antennas are already integrated. The hs3110 HSPA+ broadband module costs around 103 Euros (~$117) from HP.

Webcam

The webcam produces mediocre results with low sharpness and washed-out colors. This is sufficient for Skype or similar applications, but you should take your smartphone for pictures.

Security

Kensington Lock and fingerprint are the obvious security features of the EliteBook 840 G3. There are even more when we look at the BIOS; the software as well as the sensors. An accelerometer is supposed to park the read/write heads of the HDD when the device is dropped. However, this would only be useful if the test device had such an HDD. As per usual for EliteBooks, the BIOS (controlled with the mouse) has numerous possibilities to activate/deactivate ports and hardware as well as the configuration of individual components, such as the Turbo Boost settings of the processor, for instance. The item Security includes the setup of a DriveLock for the storage drive or performs a Secure Erase. TPM 1.2 can be activated just like a Power-On password.

Accessories

Except for the 45-watt power adaptor, the EliteBook does not come with any accessories, but the manufacturer offers various additional items.

  • HP DisplayPort-to-VDI-Adapter 
  • HP SATA-HDD, 500 GB, 7200 rpm
  • HP SED Opal 2 Solid-State Disk 256 GB 
  • HP Display and Notebook II Stand

Maintenance

HP has dispensed with maintenance hatches for RAM upgrades and the like, the same as an easily replaceable battery. You have to remove the entire bottom cover, which is quite simple after the removal of rubber covers and Philips screws. After that you will find a nice collection of components that you can replace or upgrade, including the bolted battery.

Warranty

HP sells the EliteBook 840 G3 with a three-year warranty. Business customers can benefit from CarePacks when buying directly from the manufacturer. A one-year international hardware support (next business day) after the original warranty, for example, retails for around 260 Euros (~$295).

Keyboard

Very good input devices do not have to be changed constantly. HP follows this principle and has not changed them compared to the old G1/G2. Well, not quite, since the keys are on a silver perforated grid made of plastic and not on a black surface. The contours of the keys are now easier to see, but this is not important for 10-finger typing. The layout is identical, only the vertical arrow keys and the right Shift key are slightly wider. The keys are now sitting in a gently sloping depression, which was formerly created by a black plastic bed. 

After these little changes, the keyboard with its firm pressure point and the average travel is still a convenient input device. A slight bouncing in the center – as in the predecessor – is no longer a problem. The keys are completely flat and there is no conical curvature. Unfortunate, since the Latitude E7470 and the T460s are better in this respect. The latter also provides more travel and a better feedback in general. 

Touchpad & TrackPoint

The touchpad provides excellent gliding capabilities and precision. The two corresponding mouse buttons have a conveniently firm but cushioned stroke and a well-defined pressure point. The pad is responsive up into the peripheral areas and has a smooth surface. It can be deactivated via a double tap on a small dot (which will then light up).

Another alternative to control the cursor is the so called Pointstick. It is a matter of getting used to, but a precise and very ergonomic control of the cursor is definitely possible. The small joystick has two dedicated buttons. Unfortunately, unlike the Latitude E7470, there is no scroll functionality.

 

Display

Subpixel arrangement Chi Mei CMN14C0 (TN)
Subpixel arrangement Chi Mei CMN14C0 (TN)

The 14-inch device (16:9) has 1920x1080 pixels (Full HD). The Chi Mei CMN14C0 panel has an anti-reflective surface and a high luminance, which is not reduced on battery power. Other display options are HD (1366x768 TN matte) and WQHD (2560x1440 IPS matte). HP uses PWM to reduce the luminance when the brightness is reduced to below 90%. Unfortunately, the frequency is low at 204 Hz, which some users will notice as flickering.

The black value of 0.65 is bad, because it is far too high, so the resulting contrast ratio is quite low at 563:1. Subjectively, you can notice pale colors and a gray hue on black surfaces. The competition performs better; all the comparison devices are equipped with IPS panels and mange contrast values of above 800:1.

Update 04/18/2016: Information about the WQHD panel in the Display section II below.
