Great little box

Alex M., Newegg
2 February 2016
  • Summary: All in all its a good box, the HDD and RAM are both upgradeable so it is not a big problem
  • Pros: Great little server so far have only owned for about a month. Running Server 2008 R2 hosting a small FTP server for personal use as well as a Web server. Quiet, so far reliable, no real issues so far.
  • Cons: Small drive that comes with it, honestly though for my uses its not bad. low on the ram side, an couple extra gbs would speed this up a little faster

poor customer service

dumbHP, Newegg
29 July 2014
  • Summary: Since HP has chosen the route of extorting customers with products instead of putting customers needs first, I've decided to never purchase another HP product for the rest of my life. Congrats HP, you deserve to fail now.
  • Pros: decent design, fit many needs... almost.
  • Cons: HP now requires you to pay for firmware and other updates after product warranty expires (1 year) which is NOT clearly described with the original product warranty.

Little workhorse

Jaime M, Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Love how it can run ESXi. The processor isn't all that beefy (i.e., no video transcoding), but for fileserver / devserver duties, this thing is awesome.
  • Pros: Great little server. I currently have it as a WHS box providing backups, but only because I had an unused license. I would probably either roll it with FreeNAS or unRAID for backup purposes.
  • Cons: Doesn't come with more memory out of the box.

Very basic.

Anonymous, Newegg
12 February 2014
  • Summary: Only 16 gig memory support. Somewhat under powered processor. Bios did not recognize RAID card.
  • Pros: Nice looking and compact box. All in one solution if not interested building yourself. But then again if you are here already do your research and keep in mind what is it you trying to achieve.
  • Cons: For the price it is going for ($350) you can build yourself a much better Microserver which will outperform this set up 3X.

Great Inexpensive Server

Jasper, Newegg
7 February 2014
  • Summary: We had a power supply fan buzz in one of these and
  • Pros: Small footprint, 4 3.5" drive bays, officially supports 8GB of RAM, but we were able to install 16GB, low power consumption, excellent support from
  • Cons: It loses one egg because it's not difficult, but a bit of a hassle to upgrade the RAM, install an expansion card, or replace the power supply.

N36L versus N54L -- great machine

musicman27pa, Newegg
13 January 2014
  • Summary: I upgraded the 36L to 8GB RAM (non ECC) and picked up a USB 2 External DVD drive as a boot drive although there is a utility that running a 4 or 8 BG USB boot flash drive works too.
  • Pros: This is just an awesome little box -- I have it's baby brother the N36L for over a year and have tinkered quite a bit with it.
  • Cons: ** USB 2 versus USB 3 ports on front of case

Great Price for a Server

zacharydl, Newegg
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Had to update the BIOS in order for Windows 8.1 to see the network card. Installed Windows, updated the BIOS, reinstalled Windows. Not too difficult, but not as simple as I'd hoped.
  • Pros: What a great price for a server. Our office simply needed file sharing, printer sharing, and centralized backups. This little server was easy to set up, it's quiet, and reliable so far. We installed Windows 8.1 on it.
  • Cons: The specs are really low, but it actually does everything we need it to without any slowdown.
