HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 Ultra Micro Tower Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB No Hard Drive Operating System None 712317-001
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Surprisingly Small
Excellent Airflow
Pleasant Design
Easy to upgrade
Advanced Server features for relatively little money

Cons: Some of the better iLO features (such as KVM over IP after the OS boots) require an iLO Advanced license, which costs extra money.
2GB of RAM isn't enough for memory-intensive features
No Optical Drive in this configuration
HP's "Smart Memory" is expensive to upgrade

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is an excellent little server. It can move air incredibly well, and provides some excellent and advanced server features.

I mention "No Optical Drive" as a disadvantage, but with the world moving towards everything being downloadable, it isn't much of a con. The Intelligent Provisioning features definitely make up for this limitation.

HP's "Smart Memory" is a bit too expensive for RAM. Unless you really need a feature specified in HP's Smart Memory, just go with regular server RAM. It's a lot cheaper and still has standard features like providing warnings for impending chip failure.

The graphic chip in this machine is very weak with a low refresh rate, but that should be expected with a server. I wouldn't recommend trying to use this as a desktop machine at all because of this.

I am running Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 with active directory, NPS, Remote Desktop Services and IIS and, while the OS is very good at memory management, the limitations of 2GB of RAM definitely shows every now and then.

Pioneer SP-C21 Center Channel Speaker Single

5 out of 5 eggs Sounds fantastic 12/03/2013

This review is from: Pioneer SP-C21 Center Channel Speaker Single

Pros: Sounds fantastic
Provides a very decent amount of bass

Cons: Big
Placement can be difficult as this speaker has an open-back design. This means you can't back it up too close to a wall (keep it about a foot away).

Other Thoughts: Since this is a full range speaker, it should generally not be paired with "small" speakers as this speaker can overpower the others a bit.

2 out of 5 eggs Poor Quality 12/03/2013

This review is from: Link Depot AUDIO-50-2RCA 50 ft. 3.55MM STEREO PLUG/TWO RCA PLUG

Pros: none

Cons: The cable went bad only after a month or two of use. It was used to hook up a digital piano to a home theater system and the cable was only moved once (to install) and once (to move).

Other Thoughts: Getting cheap cables online is important, but I'd gladly pay an extra couple of dollars for this cable if it lasted a decent length of time.
