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!
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 Plenty of drive space Good Price Solid hardware so far
Cons: Louder than expected. Tight fit within chassis makes upgrades a bit harder than in a larger chassis.
Summary: This little server is worth the price. every dollar was squeezed out into this. It is light weight, easy to install additional drives and sits right on your desk. all in all a good buy for your money
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.
Summary: I am running FreeNAS on this machine and it works great. For those who know, I have these programs also runnning: Sickbeard Sabnzbd Couch Potato MiniDLNA All these programs if running all at once, take most of the CPU power but I am very happy with this machine.
Summary: Had this unit running for about a month now. The Good: The system is very small and very quiet. Supports up to 4 internal HD's. Low power consumption. The bad: The system does not come with a CD/DVD drive. I knew this going in.
Summary: 5/9/13 It arrived today. Spent ages figuring out how to get the thing to boot without one. Oh, and they're mounted on special slide-in racks so you can't just pop down to the local computer store and pick up a 40-buck special.
Summary: This unit is just plain NICE to have for any techie! For what it cost and the little $$ its takes to upgrade (supports 16gig RAM) I also installed a DVDR, added a HP RAID card and created a RAID 5 across 4, 2TB HD.I wasn’t a big fan of the embedded RAID.
Summary: Why buy a NAS or a SAN when you can make your own. I liked the one I bought so much I bought another. Have had zero issues with it. I installed Windows Server 2012 and everything was recognized out of the box.
Pros: Small. Can fit 4 drives and came with the caddies to do so. e-SATA support. ECC support.
Cons: 2TB limit on internal drives. 8GB RAM limit.
