4 out of 5 eggsSlick little server, but plugs are unsecured

Pros: Beautiful little box. Just one button on the blue light. It blinks when booting and just stares like HAL the rest of the time. Performance is fine. I don't do any fancy stuff, just file and database sharing.

Cons: The power plug from the transformer is a cheesy s-video plug that does not secure into the box. Be sure nobody can disturb the cables! Pretty poor on a server. Likewise the VGA plug - it lacks screws.

5 out of 5 eggsNice box.

Pros: Windows Storage Server. It takes the headache out of integrating storage into your Active Directory network. Before I realized this simple fact, I bought one of the cheaper LaCie units which is based on an embedded Linux. It quickly became obvious that managing access permissions would be a never ending nightmare, so I sent that one back and got this instead. It's small and quiet, doesn't get hot and has dual gigabit connections for redundancy. Tons of space for a good price.

Cons: Atom processor, 2GB and 5400RPM drives might be a wee bit slow if you go crazy and enable all the roles and features. It's a storage server after all, not an entire network infrastructure. But the capability is there if you want it. You have to connect keyboard, mouse and video to it for initial setup (it is actually a real computer) but after it's running they're not needed anymore. It's Windows so it will need updates (not a problem if you already have a WSUS in your organization).

Other Thoughts: I need to figure out how to convince my wife we need a couple of these at home.
