4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This machine came with a rebate and it is Lenovo- a top brand name. First met a problem during installing windows 7 Pro 64-bit, but soon solved it. No problem after that. This is a solid machine!

Cons: No USB 3.0 port and HDMI port, which become more popular in many models. A rewritable DVD-ROM should be a standard in this machine but not. Of course, I understand since this is a "server" like machine.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a server, Barely a Workstation

Pros: It works good as a workstation with windows 7 installed.

Cons: I bought this under the pretense that I was getting a server. I thought I could use all those nice features that intel bragged about. It wasn't until I got the server that I found out those nice server features only work with the next processor model up. They do not work on I3 Cpu's. No big deal though.
The very big deal is that the bios is gimped and can only run certain versions of OS's and VMware software. No ubuntu, and if you want linux, you have to buy the redhat corporate version. This includes VMware OS's as well. The bios will check for Windows 7,8 or Server, and Redhat Linux. If you are not running those then you get a "NO OS" error.

If I pay for a server, I want a server. If I pay for a server and get a workstation, I at least want to be able to run any OS I choose.

Other Thoughts: I will definately check specs in more detail when buying a server. It is sad that things today are still so proprietary that you can't even run mainstream OS's on supposed IT level equipment.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent server

Pros: Very, very quiet
OS installation without issues
Easy to add memory, hard drive
32GB memory max
Supports virtualization (had to enable it in BIOS)

Cons: Not much space for many hard drives or expansion cards

Other Thoughts: Installed Active Directory on Windows Server 2012 in no time, added 4GB RAM, hard drive and it is doing its job, perfect for my purpose

3 out of 5 eggsGood value, but really, this is a Server?

Pros: OK. I admit that this is a good value for the price and could be a low-end entry level server for some non-critical task.

Cons: Good luck adding more than 3 hard drives, additional network connectivity or other options, the small MicroATX form factor severely limits your choices.

Other Thoughts: It's frustrating to see how a marketing department twists the meanings of words, in this case the word "Server."

Lenovo calls this a Server. Most Newegg customers, especially those of us who build our own stuff, would call it a low-end Micro-ATX desktop computer.

In my opinion, a true server has at least one, preferably all, of these features: ability to add more processors; raid controller supporting 4 or more front-accessible hotswap drives; multiple network connections with teaming; out-of-band management access; support ridiculous amounts of ECC memory; redundant power supply. Having none of these, sorry to burst your balloon but this is a desktop-class machine.

Even better abuse of the language: take basically the same machine, slap in the cheapest current Nvidia Quadro card, Lenovo calls that a ThinkStation.

Don't get me wrong, Lenovo makes fantastic product; you just need to be fully aware of what it is and what the limitations are, before believing the product name assigned by marketing executives.

4 out of 5 eggsGood SOHO Server

Pros: Well constructed. Easy modular cages. Fast enough as a server.

Cons: DVD ROM only - really??? It probably costs more than an RW!! Perhaps a bit of a problem locating 2nd drive at bottom of case if setting up a RAID system.

Other Thoughts: I understand the twisted reasoning behind MIR's, but I'm sick and tired of them now. If I could, I would start up a petition to boycott any products that are "reduced" in price by one of these "near-scam coupons". Come on now, we're all buyers looking for a deal, but these are reserved to the bottom of the pond scavengers. If you want to give a discount, then give it - make it a limited time and be done with it. If you snooze, you lose. In the last 2 months, this same machine has been on and off at full price, discounted price a few times and MIR. What game are you playing Newegg? Or is it Lenovo? Lets get real now.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Machine

Pros: Very fast and super quiet. Great for Small Office and Home Service.

Cons: Could use more Vents and Fan Options for cooling. Stock fan is noticeable when in a really hot room with no AC, was hoping where you can't notice but no biggie.

Other Thoughts: Good Price, purchased 2. Server 2012 for home, Server 2003 for office. Both machine running virtual desktop. Home machine hosting ftp, Serviio (stream media to TV) and torrent.

Both running SSD 500 transfer/read. Flawless. Perform the job as needed and much much more. Was skeptical with i3 but for a home/small office server it could handle anything you throw at it without a hick-up.

Would recommend to everyone. Thinking purchasing another one for the office, expanding to three location with store front handling date for Point of Sales and office work. Retail/Professional products.

GREAT Product!!!

4 out of 5 eggsGood For The Money

Pros: Good little server, not terribly powerful or customizable but that's clear from the specs of course. Also nice and quiet.

Cons: The power supply died after ~6 months. I replaced with a CoolerMaster and it's all good.

Other Thoughts: Despite the bad PS, not a bad buy for the price I think.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, High-Performance, Great Price

Pros: Great design, easy to work with, boots incredibly quickly, whisper-quiet, cool, great price/performance balance, Lenovo quality, all drivers installed automatically for WS2013 between install and Windows Update patching.

Cons: Not terribly expandable: only one PCIe x1 slot, and that is rendered inoperable if you put anything of substance in the x16 slot (e.g., GPU). Two 32-bit PCI slots... really? In 2013? Old-school PCI? Boggles the mind. Also, interior space is a bit Spartan; as other reviewers have noted, to max this thing's internal bays out, you'll need molex splitters and SATA power adapter dongles because there's only cabling enough for like 1-2 disks.

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind spending $20 more in dongles, and either find a very slim GPU or don't use one, and would want only one expansion card max, then it's hard to beat the price/performance on this server.
