Pros: dont let other reviews fool you. You don't have to buy HP drives. The HD cages use special screws (star) but other than that the Hard drive fits fine... after all they are all standard size of either 3.5" or 2.5".
Been using these servers since G6 and I can't say enough great things about em. Spend a little money on three 6tb hard drives and one 256GB SSD. They all fit great in this server. One of the other things I like about these proliants is they are scalable. Granted you buy HP parts you can scale these servers up to support a lot of different configurations.
Cons: HP Parts can be expensive. If you didn't buy support or ran out of support, replacing components can be very costly.
Other Thoughts: the Motherboard RAM DIMMs are built a lot more sturdy than the G7s. I use this server at home to run Windows Server Essentials and PLEX Media Server and it runs flawlessly. I upgraded memory to 16GB and added a SSD for my OS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: sleek, sexy look. lots of air flow, separate cage for SSDs and 2.5" HDs. room for large graphics cards, removable mobo tray and it turns into a testing bench!
Cons: case is a tight fit. I found it difficult to reach in there and tie down cables.
Other Thoughts: Backplane fried a TB drive because the molex power connector in the back accepts the molex connector any direction. this means if you plug it in upside down, you will reverse the electrical flow causing your drive to short out. Was pretty annoyed I didn't pay closer attention to this.

This review is from: EasyN Wireless WIFI IP Camera IR LED 2-Audio Nightvision White
Pros: -Night Vision
-Connects to your wireless network (its wireless)!
-has an intercom where you can listen and speak through the camera.
-alarm and email notification services plus motion detection
-DDNS, FTP and UPNP settings
-Comes with a mounting Bracket
Those are some really great features to the camera and make the price on sale very worthwhile.
Cons: Instructions are not for advanced features. They do not cover connecting to your wireless network, or any of the operating procedures. The instructions are a small booklet that has two pages. It covers a few steps like 1) position your camera and plug it into the router 2) put CD software in computer and run setup...
-Setup Software is not in English. The CD that comes with the camera is used to locate the camera when your router gives it a DHCP address. WHen the CD starts up, the language is in Japanese.
-Camera Plastic is glossy which to me is a con because it makes the camera more noticeable. Some may like that form of Prevention but not me. I want discretion.
-Options menu is much like a router configuration
All in all the camera is really great. The picture quality is good and there are some amazing features to this camera. Although the setup software is in another language, once you locate the camera and login, setting it up is much like setting up an old Linksys router
Other Thoughts: I bought another one after setting up this one.READ FULL REVIEW
