This review is from: HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Tower Server System Intel Xeon E5-2403 1.8GHz 4C/4T 8GB DDR3 No Hard Drive 686770-S01
Pros: Seems to be a nice server with plenty of expansion options.
Cons: HP has changed the design of their Gen8 servers such that you can no longer use empty drive trays with 3rd party hard drives.
The bays are just slightly smaller so that Gen7 trays will not fit.
At this time there is no option to buy empty 3.5" LFF trays. You MUST buy HP branded drives which are much more expensive and only have a 1yr warranty.
It was not a pleasant surprise to discover that the specs seem to lack mentioning that it will only accept HP branded LFF drives and there is no option to use non-HP drives at this time.
Other Thoughts: 2.5" (SFF) 3rd party trays are now available, hopefully 3.5" trays are available soon.
Until then i'd recommend sticking with Gen7 servers if you plan on using 3.5" SAS/SATA drives.
