Pros: Worked right away! Very powerful CPU.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
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)!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as advertised. Simply insert the SSD in the casing and you are now handling a 3.5 inches Disk!
Cons: none so far!
Other Thoughts: My HP microserver is having 4 3.5 HD drawers. I wanted to use a 2.5 inches SSD in one of the HDD bays and the disk connectors must be placed exactly at the same place as on a 3.5 HDD. The ICY DOCK does the trick. Now, my SSD is in a casing that's the same size as a 3.5 inches HDD and the connectors are at the right place!READ FULL REVIEW
