Great form and Function 01/27/2012
Great platform for a home server, excellent design, easy to add and install drives, open PCI slots make this unit expandable, over all easy build, would be hard to build this for the same price. For the one reviewer, the HDD screws and Torque key are in the front door, just in case you missed them. HP upped the memory to a 2GB dimm, which makes way more sense, added this ram for N82E16820139466, which works great. Oh, almost forgot, it has a broadcom nic, much better for streaming high bit rate files to multiple sources,
No issues with the PSU fans as other have noticed, but I do have a bit of rattle/vibaration noise, seems to be coming from the from door, I'm still using it as a test box, but will need to add some sound damping to the door, before I decommission my WHS V1. Esata is not port multiplier aware
Good build for the price, I would like to get a little more horse power, or as much as I can get while still maintain a low power consuming box, Rumor has it HP may have a 2.2GHZ version on the drawing board, as some Bios pic's have surfaced on a few sites, and That may be just the kick we need, but the N40L should have about 30% more processing power than the Atom D525.
