GOOD LOW POWER UNIT
Pros: This makes a nice low power server, I use it for a web server for a car club, and email server as well, using XP Professional. Running this 24/7 you will not notice it in your electric bill. It works as advertised.
Cons: Newegg has made a mistake in the description, this uses an Atom 2500 CPU, not the Atom 2550. I confirmed this on the Habey website. The 2550 has hyper-threading, the 2500 does not. Fix the typo Newegg...
Other Thoughts: A good buy...

Cheap but it works
Pros: Cheap; low power consumption; fast enough for a Ubuntu-based home server; two hard drive "bays" (see cons); metal case; VESA mount
Cons: No documentation included or online; no optical drive (have to install OS from USB or a second hard drive); the hard drive "bays" are actually a single piece of metal with holes pre-drilled for 2.5"/3.5"/5.25" drives, though the clearance is too low to fit more than 2.5"; only one set of hard drive cables is included and no mounting screws; specs vague about RAM (it's 204-pin DDR3!)
Other Thoughts: The server came with a 1GB stick of 204-pin DDR3-1333 memory preinstalled, something that wasn't mentioned in the specs - I was expecting it to be BYO. Also omitted is any description of memory requirements more specific than "DDR3". Their tech support told me that it took 240-pin memory, so I ordered 2x2GB of that. Happily, though, I had 2x2GB of 204-pin DDR3-1066 memory from a MacBook Pro gathering dust that the server happily accepted.
