Great little box

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
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.
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.
