3 out of 5 eggs Great functionality, wish it was more stable 11/24/2012

This review is from: HP 615095-B21 Micro Server Remote Access Card Kit

Pros:

Lights-out management for your ProLiant Microserver without breaking the bank
Good user interface
Allows remote reboot, power off, and power on
IP-based KVM allows even for remote BIOS configuration
Supports remote mounting of ISO images for OS or application install

Cons:

This card's OS isn't always stable; I have times when I try to perform a function, and I get kicked back out to the login screen. At least you can remote reboot the card's onboard OS from within its management interface, however, this just shouldn't be happening on the regular basis that it is for me.
Also, the standard login to the card's web interface is HTTP, not HTTPS. While it supposedly supports both, this should be a de facto security standard for such a piece of hardware, as it's a product you purchase with remote access in mind.
As the card replaces the ProLiant's VGA, you'll need to find drivers from Aspeed Tech (who makes the chipset), as opposed to HP. Fortunately there are Windows 8 drivers which work with Server 2012, but this should be on HP's shoulders.
Finally, while HP has online documentation, it is only average; some details are missing, or based on earlier firmware (which has not been updated in over a year).
All of these reasons are enough to take off two eggs.

Other Thoughts:

This is a neat product that requires more polish, another firmware update or two, and better (HP-provided) driver support and documentation.
