Recommended mini server!

Scott M, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: So far so good. This little server is a workhorse. Running windows 2008 r2, it hasn't crashed yet. Uptime is great, and it has sufficient power for video processing as a downloader and a Plex media server. I would recommend!

HP gated firmware - Pay or live with buggy Firmware after warranty period.

Mr. A. Carter "Mrs V. Carter", Amazon
10 August 2014
  • Summary: Since HP gated their firmware updates behind a "support" contract or during warranty period only, can not recommend for home hobbyist at all. Avoid.

Nice small server

Sergei Sharonov, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: Well made, does not take much space, quiet operation. Use it as a CVS/SSH server. Ubuntu installed from USB stick with little problems having to do with creating bootable USB stick. Some filenames got truncated and a few (unused) files did not copy. Initially had a problem with boot hanging around video driver or swap init but seems to have fixed itself (?!). Some people rightfully complained that top slot is only suited for CD/DVD drive.

After over 3 and a half years...

EJP, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: Still working great, especially compared to the EX470 it replaced. Build quality is excellent and comes with all the tools/screws required for installing drives into the other bays. I'm using it with WHS 2011, even with the original 250GB hard drive and only the 1GB of RAM it came with. I had to customize the WHS 2011 installer to let it install with less RAM than it required. I use DriveBender to expand as I add hard drives.

Have 4 all run FreeNAS well.

Alan Cohen, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: We use these servers for FreeNAS. Have run constantly for several years 24/7 without a problem. Drive installation is easy. RAM installation is a pain in the posterior. Have added a DLT tape drive. Make sure if your add a tape or optical drive to get a SATA cable with a right angle connector.

HP Server

Rodney R. Donovan "Master Rod", Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: WOW! Best $ 3 0 0 bucks I ever spent on a box. Runs Linux fast. Boots up within 1 minute. Bought a USB sound card and am very happy with the results. Although only a dual core, it runs rings around my other dual core laptops and PCs. Best bang for the buck as a mini-server. HP actually got something right. Highly recommend it.

These micro servers are really great!

Michael Perkins, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: The HP Proliant MicroServer is great product for small offices and works well as a home server platform. They are quiet and small with good space to install multiple hard drives. They are simple to set up and included inside the unit are the necessary screws and hardware to install the extra hard drives and optical drive if needed.
