3 out of 5 eggsLinux users, beware

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: Small form factor, well built, very quiet, RAID built in

Cons: The RAID controller in this server is NOT supported in Linux distributions, like RedHat, SUSE, or Ubuntu. HP states that the B120i RAID controller driver is proprietary, and thus not included in Linux distributions.
HP provides a convoluted driver download and installation workaround that is very difficult to get right, even if you are a pro.
So, if you are looking for a small, quiet, and good performing server running Linux with the high availability feature of RAIDed disks, this is not the server to buy.

3 out of 5 eggsNo more for me

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: The CPU can be swapped out, but I found the performance was pretty good the way it is.
The front door panel is much improved over the previous model and it does lock.
Access to memory and SATA connectors is much easier than the previous model.

Cons: The price is $75 too high. Maybe worse.
The one and only power connector available is a FLOPPY power connector.
There are only 2 memory slots.
The 1 stick of proprietary ECC memory included is only 2GB. This server will run non-HP unbuffered ECC RAM but won't show it on the BIOS screen and I can't be certain that the RAM is working correctly/optimally in ECC mode or not.
I can tell you that it would not run my non-ECC memory.

Other Thoughts: The previous model had power supply and rear fan problems. I know because I bought a lot of them and had to replace these parts a year later .However, it was fairly simple to do on the previous model., On this new version, it won't be as easy if necessary.
My next will Dell or Lenovo.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little box

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: Super compact size, space for lots of disks, easy to work on, attractive design, and value for the money. Easy to upgrade RAM. Celeron performs better than you'd expect.

Cons: Cabled, non-redundant power supply (though not super proprietary or difficult to find, which is good.)

Other Thoughts: I haven't had the noise issues that other have. It's nearly silent in my configuration. It's running Server 2008 R2 as a domain controller/print server in a small remote office.

I added a 4GB chip of RAM to get up to 6GB total (not HP's, just normal ECC).

I have 2 drives in a RAID 1, one as a standalone drive for backups, and one as a hot spare. Runs great!

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent home/small office server

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: Simple, all-in-one design
Compact form factor
Rugged, high-quality build

Cons: Somewhat noisy

Other Thoughts: This is an EXCELLENT home server. I debated between buying all the individual parts and putting together on my own (like I do with all my PC's), but this little box packs everything you need in a price range that is fantastic.

The noise from the fan is a minor con, not really even that bad. I also added an extra 2 GB of RAM, (kinda expensive RAM, but that's what you get with ECC).

You CAN use the space above the drive cage (normally reserved for a slim optical drive) for an SSD, unlike what was previously stated in another review. You just have to move some cables around.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Home Server

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: This is a good looking well built MicroServer – definitely a step up from the G7 N54L (which is also a wonderful & versatile box in itself).
I’ve found it to be an excellent learning tool even in it’s stock condition and if your adventurous you can really enhance the capabilities of this Gen8 MicroServer many fold.
So far I’ve run Server 2012 on it as well as Windows Home Server 2011 in several different configurations – AHCI and RAID on the B120i and RAID on the P222.

Cons: None. Wish I had another.

Other Thoughts: This Machine is easy to upgrade/mod.

Since October 2013 I have:
Upgraded the RAM with Kingston 16GB KVR1333D3E9SK2/16G (see my review over there) that I had been running in my N40L

Upgraded the CPU to a Zeon E3-1265L V2 (very nice!)

Attached a SFF-8087 breakout cable to the onboard mini-SAS port (get a Forward cable – like what you would get for a RR2720) of the System Board (disconnecting the HP mini-SAS connector to goes to the 4 Drive cage first)

Added a Schoondoggy Drive Mount (SDM) so that I could add an additional 2*2.5” WD 1TB drives in the open space inside next to the PSU (attached to Ports 3 & 4 of the B120i).

Added two SSD’s in the ODD space to use as my OS (attached to Ports 1 & 2 of the B120i)

Added a P222 to drive the 4 bay drive cage via the HP mini-SAS connector that had been plugged into the System Board

I love working with this Machine! Thanks Newegg for the great deal too!

5 out of 5 eggsWell done!

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: Great build quality.
Easy to upgrade RAM and CPU.
Works well with VMWare ESXi.

Cons: As long as you do not plan to use VT-D on the Sata controller, it's all going well.
The CPU heatsink is not of a standard format so it is not easy to replace it with a larger one. The server comes with a passive 35Watts TDP heat sink. Still, I'm currently using a Xeon 1240 v2 and everything's ok.

Other Thoughts: This is a great unit for a home lab or small enterprise. It is well built and easy to upgrade. I would just recommend not trying to use that unit as both a virtual machines server and a NAS. I tried for weeks and it's really not easy to do (if even possible)!

2 out of 5 eggsNOISY

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: Small, Compact

Cons: NOISY....even fake RAID 0 is noisy. Tried all settings and configurations. Okay for empty room or lab. Not for home or small office. No new firmware updates in the last five months. Three fan speeds... high, higher and blaring high!

Other Thoughts: Will sell or scrap and go back to older server. Too bad I didn't build it out while the return policy was in effect.

4 out of 5 eggsA solid product that could use a few tweaks

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: HP iLO 4 integrated (just like the big servers)
Supports HP Intelligent Provisioning (just like the big servers)
Socketed CPU (can be upgraded to low voltage Xeon E3 or E3-v2)
Expansion slot with full support for HP SmartArray P222 RAID controller (including in iLO and Intelligent Provisioning)
Dual gig NICs
USB3 integrated
Micro-SDHC slot on the mainboardfor running a bootable OS (e.g., VMWare ESXi) as well as internal USB port to do the same
Optional stackable HP PS1810-8G 8-port layer 2 managed Gig switch with VLAN support and integrated management with the Gen8
Great driver/firmware support

Cons: Intelligent Provisioning does not support Server 2012 R2 yet (but is upgradeable in the future)
Poor setup for adding optical disk drive
Only 2 of 4 ports on the SATA backplane are 6Gbps (chipset limitation)
No Intel VT-d support without processor upgrade

Other Thoughts: This is a great server either for running FreeNAS, or upgrading to a beefy home lab for testing virtual machines. Note that it requires a 9.5mm ultra slim optical drive (it could have held a 12.7mm with some changes by HP) and has an odd 3.5" female power adapter that means you need a special HP power/SATA cable to use an optical disc, as well as a special bolt on bracket/clip to attach the drive to. I think this is HP's one big mistake in an otherwise great small business server.
Note the server also requires ECC unbuffered memory; not just any RAM will do.

Mine has been upgraded to a low-voltage Xeon E3 (1265L v2), 16GB of RAM, and an HP SmartArray P222 hardware RAID controller so I can run a RAID-5 array. I am also using a special aftermarket bracket to hold an SSD as a boot drive that boots off the system board controller. I'm currently running Server 2012 R2 Standard beautifully.

The iLO4 capability alone is worth half the price of this great unit, but you'll want to buy an advanced key for some of the better features (a brief search will find you one cheaply). If you have a 10-30 person office, this is a great server on a budget.

1 out of 5 eggsPlagued with issues

This review is from: HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001

Pros: nice on paper

Cons: fan would blow up 100% constantly. Was not able to fix even with hours on phone with hp support
issues when using AHCI
not compatible with regular memory. Need to use super expensive hp mem
no sata cable top (where one could put SSD instead of DVD)
Very long boot time (minutes)

Other Thoughts: I had a hp mediasmart before, and was extremely happy with it. The microserver looked liked the logical replacement.
very disappointed
