  • Pros: Decent little server, hardware is decent and configuration was a breeze.
  • Cons: There is an issue with fan noise. The server was configured with Windows Server 2012 and when it's first booted into Windows it's quiet.

BIOS is a poor choice for Linux

Joseph Argenio, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: 30 yr IT professional here. The firmware in this system is from 1982 (BIOS) way out of date. BIOS is a poor choice for Linux, but bad even for Windows as it is old and slow (16-bit!). Why would a computer company sell you a system with 34-year-old software loaded into it's ROM?

Ignore the Caddy Thing

N/A, Newegg
7 January 2013
  • Summary: The caddy issue mentioned by others isn't a big issue. This problem is there with all servers with hotswap drives. Just buy a drive and caddy as seperate pieces on your favorite auction site or elsewhere. The caddy's are about $8 and you can populate with the drives of your choice.
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Lack of Redundant Power Supply

Must use Gen 8 Hard Drive Caddy's

Todd, Newegg
27 December 2012

  • Pros: I thought the price...
  • Cons: This server is completely worthless without their proprietary caddy. Unfortunately, this does not come with a Hard Drive Caddy. HP doesn't just sell the Caddy. Just ones with their overpriced Hard Drives already in it. This is Gen 8 and so the old Gen Caddy's will not work with it. After talking ...

  • Excerpt: El servidor es de muy buena calidad para el precio, aunque estaría mejor si incluyera el lector de cd/dvd. El tiempo de arranque del equipo es aceptable.
