Pros: Low cost
Cons: I have purchased 4 of these for my company, all loaded with Windows 2012 Essentials and located to different geographic locations. I added hardrives, memory to 16GB. ALL of these machines shut down randomly causing a lot of trouble for my users in these locations. I have searched land and earth f...

Summary: Best pc for the price with a quad core xeon cpu. This thing iw very well made and FAST. I run a linux server with it and upon installation all drivers needed installed automatically I did not need to do anything myself. No errors whatsoever.
I am blown out of the water about how nice this computer is for the price

Summary: I am blown out of the water about how nice this computer is for the price. Seriously. I run Blue Iris with 2 720P cameras recording constantly at 10 FPS with overlay processing and the processor stays under 12% steady state. I bought bigger hard drives, Windows 10 and it is amazing.
Summary: Anyone who has ever jumped through the M.I.R. hoops knows how absurd and antiquated the process is. If you've done it once, you know how carefully you need to follow the instructions. Even if you do it right, they take months to pay - what really could take that long in this day and age?
Pros: Fast, powerful, compact, quiet. Easy expansion, good price. Have owned it five months and use it as a Windows 10 desktop.
Cons: Could not get DisplayPorts to work. Somewhat of a disappointment as I purchased two cables for this. I popped in a couple of extra video cards a had around and have the set-up I wanted now. Was supposed to get a $30 Mail-In-Rebate, which was never sent. Newegg now claims I only sent a copy of the...
Summary: I run ESXi v5.1 on it with no problems after slipstreaming the onboard NIC driver into the installation media. My only complaint (and not worth knocking a star off) was that it came with a single 4GB stick of RAM - I had assumed it came with 2*2GB sticks of ram (my own fault really).
Pros: Energy efficient, very driver friendly - no fighting to find drivers. Extremely quiet and has been reliable! Running a small home business server with a mix of Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8.1 Pro machines. Server platform is Microsoft Server Essentials.
Cons: For the price you would think you would get a little more beef under the hood.
