Pros: Works great, dual monitors, sound, usb.
Ran it with both 1920x1200 and 1920x1080 monitors.
Includes all the cables you need.
Purchased Apr2011, been using it daily since then.
Cons: The special USB ports for the K and M don't always work. Moved KM to the standard USB port with no issues, just lose the hot keys
Other Thoughts: Probably will buy another to daisychain for another 3 systems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: small, quiet, 4+1 sata ports (4 std disks and 1 using ODD). I set up FreeNAS 7 using 4 disks with software raid5, installed FreeNAS itself on a laptop drive using the ODD port for a 5th disk. Plenty of USB ports, vga to connect for OS install.
Cons: cpu seemed to have gotten bogged down when it was initializing the raid5 volume
Other Thoughts: there's an internal USB port that might be perfect for booting off a flash drive.READ FULL REVIEW

Accepts a raid card in the 16x pci-e slot. I'm using a 3Ware (now LSI) 9590SE-8ML
Cons: graphic related tasks a little slow, but its a server so it doesn't matterREAD FULL REVIEW
