KINGWIN HDM-229 Metal Mounting Kit
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Works as advertised 06/30/2014

Pros: Does what is says...using it to mount a 3.5" drive in the 5.25" bay in my HP ProLiant N54L Microserver

Cons: No issues

HP ProLiant G7 N54L MicroServer Server System AMD Turion II Model Neo N54L 2GB 250GB LFF Operating System None 704941-001
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Quiet
Runs cool (averages ~36C, maxes out ~57C)
Awesome support from HP
Low power consumption
Relatively easy to work on

Cons: Processing power is a little lacking but that is expected with an AMD Turion II.
Had one issue early on with the motherboard where the server wasn't able to boot up at all (wouldn't post or anything). However HP support was very easy to deal with and they promptly shipped me out a replacement motherboard, free of charge, which resolved all of my problems.

Other Thoughts: Running with:
Windows Server Essentials 2012
Upgraded to 8GB of RAM (Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) ECC Unbuffered Server Memory Model KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G)
2x2TB WD Red drives
1x1TB WD Blue drive
1x500GB WD Blue drive (mounted in the optical drive space using KINGWIN HDM-229 Metal Mounting Kit)
1x250GB drive

Have this running as my home server that I use mainly for streaming content to a Roku 3 using Plex. Works great, but because it only has an AMD Turion, it struggles to transcode large 1080p content, but this is expected. Most of the content I watch isn't in 1080p and if it is, I can convert the media in advance to a format that doesn't need transcoding for the Roku. Bought this over building myself a new rig primarily because I wanted something that would use very little power and that would be "server" reliable, and that's exactly what this little box has been.

Other things I use it for as well:
- File sharing server (can access files from anywhere using Tonido)
- Mumble server
- Print server
- Crashplan backup destination
- Photo backup server using Bittorrent Sync
- Remotely manage it via Teamviewer
