1 out of 5 eggsHDD Failure

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. HP's warranty is only for one year. The drive is junk, and Seagate's failure to honor their normal warranty leads to major loss of customer loyalty.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Machine

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

Removing the MB to swap the memory wasn't very difficult, but the tight fit within the chassis does make it harder for someone with larger hands to handle the cables.

Be sure to check your cables are seated properly. I was getting the red HP indicator after some work and it turned out that I forgot to reconnect a cable.

I rated 4 out of 5 due to the sound level. It doesn't have the quietest fan and running 5 HDD's does make some noise.

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: 1) Small.
2) Cheap price.

Cons: 1) Not quiet, could hear across living room.
2) VERY cheap hardware
3) Broke (for me) after about 6 months of light use.

Other Thoughts: Naturally the first pre-built computer I've bought in over 15 years lasts just long enough to croak outside of return policy.

Thought it was the RAM, bought a replacement and the machine is still stuck with a red light.

Will never buy an HP product or pre built computer again.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid little home server

Pros: Small size, low power usage, easy access to drives,

Cons: Very tight inside, difficult to install add in card.

Other Thoughts: 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. It came with a 250-GB drive that I installed the OS on. I added two 2-GB Toshiba drives (RAID 1). I also added a USB 3 card and an external 2-GB backup drive.

Adding the USB 3 card was a challenge as the case was very tight inside and it was difficult to get to everything I needed to access. I don't remember specifics. I just remember it was not as easy as I hoped. Eventually I got it in and working.

The unit came with 2-GB RAM. Adding memory would have been easier but I felt for the purpose I was using this machine, extra memory wasn't needed and I was right.

It works great with MS Home Server 2011 for my intended use. It's not as great as a media server but this was never really my goal for this server. Copying large numbers of files to the server is slower than I would like but eventually they get there. This might have as much to do with my network as it does the server though.

Bottom line – For under $500 (including all my drives and the USB card) it is a great investment for some peace of mind and a central place to store files.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked like a charm!

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...

Other Thoughts: 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!

2 out of 5 eggsbad PCI express slot position

Pros: This is addition to the previous comment I wrote, I forgot to mention this.

There is a PCI express card slot, which allow user to upgrade the video card.

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.

Any decent card, has a high sink, and/or fan. Only if the case has 1 more inch. Or the PCI express slot is on the right side (1st slot). It shouldn't be that big of problem.

I am talking about the Nvidia GT 410, GT420, GT610, GT620, or ATI cards ... most of them don't fit.
You have better chance with GT210 or ATI 6450..

Other Thoughts: Not reliable motherboard... and VGA output.

System update, such as BIOS and driver is very slow and limited.

2 out of 5 eggsVideo Dead after 5 months, Newegg NOT authorized HP Dealer,

Pros: 1.) Relatively small, and efficient design, good quality case.
2.) 4 bays easy pull out design
3.) Intel Processor and expandable memory slot
4.) 6 USB ports and Ethernet
5.) front opening for easy drives pull out
6.) Decent BIOS
7.) Include "most" of the screws you need

Cons: 1.) Video (VGA) output dead after 5 months
2.) Drive pull out rack is too plastic and soft, they are "band-able"
3.) Newegg is not HP authorized Dealer, therefore the warrant DOES NOT start from the date you purchase. It starts from the date NewEgg purchase from other

Other Thoughts: 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.

I couldn't do remote connection, and needed to connect locally. It just have no output on monitor. I do hard reset on the system, and still doesn't work. Cannot even see the boot or BIOS screen.

So, I called HP. The warranty was expired 2 months ago. I explained to them, that not the date I purchased, I should have 2 more months. That's when they explained that the Newegg is not authorized dealer, and the warranty date DOES NOT start from end user purchase date.

5 out of 5 eggsA Nice Upgrade

Pros: Great sale price
Streaming via WHS 2011 is very fluid
still has room for 2 half height I/O cards
4 drives + DVD if you want
Gbit ethernet
eSATA to expand further if needed

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

Other Thoughts: 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. May add an HDMI video card in the future. My old WHIIST photo albums have been upgraded to Gallery Server Pro and the response time is great. I've ordered a 2GB stick of ECC to bring it to 4GB. WHS 2011 is running fine & backing up all computers without a hitch.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid a server

Pros: - Compact design
- Just add HD and OS is simple.
- Quiet

Cons: - would love some server freebies like monitoring or stats SW but thats just greedy.

Other Thoughts: 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. It also working serving up all recorded TV to media devices.
