HDD Failure

N/A, Newegg
12 June 2014
  • Pros: ProLiant MicroServer is great. This review is about the OEM Seagate HDD.
  • Cons: After receiving the ProLiant, I immediately pulled the original Seagate 250GB HDD to install a 2TB RAID configuration. This week I installed the Seagate 250GB HDD in another system. It failed in less than an hour. Seagate does not honor its usual warranty because this is regarded as an OEM drive....

Great Machine

N/A, Newegg
28 December 2013
  • Summary: Excellent little home system. I used it to build a NAS server and so far I am very happy with the system. I upgraded the system to max out the memory and I am also using the CD/DVD bay as a 5th HDD. I bought a HDD drive rack and it fit in without much of a hassle.
  • Pros: Small Size
  • Cons: Louder than expected.

You get what you pay for

notrub, Newegg
26 August 2013
  • Summary: Naturally the first pre-built computer I've bought in over 15 years lasts just long enough to croak outside of return policy.
  • Pros: 1) Small.
  • Cons: 1) Not quiet, could hear across living room.

Solid little home server

RobtRoma, Newegg
26 July 2013
  • Summary: I've had this server running in my house for a little over a year and a half now. I got a great holiday combo deal from Newegg back then. I purchased it as a way to consolidate all the files and backups I had scattered over 4 PCs and 5 or six external drives.
  • Pros: Small size, low power usage, easy access to drives,
  • Cons: Very tight inside, difficult to install add in card.

Worked like a charm!

N/A, Newegg
24 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this server system to migrate an HP EX470 four hard drive system that experienced a motherboard failure. Setup was easy once I found the correct Ethernet driver, and I greatly enjoy the ability to view the system via a monitor. I'm back in business!
  • Pros: Fast delivery, Easy setup, great upgrade!
  • Cons: System didn't come with any drivers to help facilitate setup- especially an Ethernet controller driver. Had to search HP's website for a download. Not a biggie...

bad PCI express slot position

Practical User, Newegg
27 April 2013
  • Summary: Not reliable motherboard... and VGA output.
  • Pros: This is addition to the previous comment I wrote, I forgot to mention this.
  • Cons: However, the PCI express slot is a position bad or the case designed a little "mis-calculated". Basically, it is on the "2nd" slot on the board, if we count from the left. It is very close to the case, so that type of video is actually very limited, because of the high-sink or fan.

Newegg

  • Summary: Although I purchased it on early 2012, I didn't use it until 10 months later. It was kept in box all the time. After 5 months of use, the VGA output is dead.
  • Pros: 1.) Relatively small, and efficient design, good quality case.
  • Cons: 1.) Video (VGA) output dead after 5 months

A Nice Upgrade

N/A, Newegg
23 April 2013
  • Summary: This is an upgrade to my 4 yr old HP EX485 (which still works great). I installed WHS 2011 & Drive Pool for DE functionality (BTW with Drive Pool there is no 2TB drive limit - using 2 Seagate 3TB drives just fine). Very convenient to have a full server board with video out.
  • Pros: Great sale price
  • Cons: Not a con - be sure to use only LFF drives and not the "fat" 3.5" drives; they won't fit in the caddie

Solid a server

dan596, Newegg
23 April 2013
  • Summary: I have been running WHS 2011 on this non-stop for over a year now. This is a nice compact platform with space for 4 drives. Power consumption is well managed. It certainly gets a workout as WHS is busy most of each night backing up the various computers.
  • Pros: - Compact design
  • Cons: - would love some server freebies like monitoring or stats SW but thats just greedy.
