Easy to Setup
Affordable for the feature's that this server offers
Cons: A little slow when it comes to transferring files to external storage but that's because of usb 2 speeds.
Other Thoughts: This server has been a wonderful purchase and if you have a storage need, then I would highly recommend the purchase of a NAS such as this one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This processor is fast enough for most people that want to spend the extra money. It powers through video and audio encoding tasks quickly with power to spare and anything else you can throw at it is quickly completed. I upgraded from a Q6600 and what a upgrade on speed! The processor can be overclocked, however I chose not to. This processor operates at 3.2 GHz and is fast enough for my work.
Cons: Slightly expensive for a cpu, however this is what you pay when you get a Intel. The other shortcoming is the lack of options you have when you choose to upgrade your processor, as you usually have to buy a entirely new motherboard, as the processor socket is different and won't fit your older chip.
Other Thoughts: If you need the extra speed and efficiency that the Intel processor architecture brings up and you can spend the extra $200, then I would definitely look at the six-core chips for the extra 2 cores.READ FULL REVIEW
