Pros: Easy to setup, just follow instructions, Moderate speed download and Uploading
Quite and cool running. Easy Hardrive pull out, but careful is advice when
you load a hardrive in its tray it can break easy.
Works with windows xp and not sure if it works with windows 7. it would not work with Linux OS or Mac. Panel lights can be dim execpt the power lamp
Large cooling fan is efficient and increase speed when it gets hot.
Cons: I don't like the design of the control panel it s facing the left side gives you a neck ache when you look at it . because its like talking to a person who looks to the left not facing you. but I think Acer did this so you can turn the box on its right side and the panel facing upward.
You could not get it to access if your in other part of the country or state
Remote does not work unless you get tech support to fix it.
There lies the problem server is cheap plus you have to buy tech support package which is expensive. that cost 1/3 of the price of the server.
which is very bad, you buy cheap but pay more for additional service.
a service which I find very poor. Long waiting on the telephone.
Other Thoughts: I feel that anyone who bought this product regret buying it. I like my money back for this poor product because of very poor customer service support.
I would modify this server in the future when it drops dead. and use a different os
and a better motherboard and processor. Its like buying an empty box
I am not satisfied with ACER products
Pros: The wireless adapter if fast I get a 300mbps on my wireless connection
if the signal is within range as you go further away from the wireless router signal drops and so the mbps drops too to around 180 mbps
I am using a D-link 355 wireless router with a wirless N
Cons: Plastic is so thin that it can break easy, it gets hot but not too hot
it will work with any Windows xp but I have not tried it with windows 7
It wil not work on a Linux OS
Other Thoughts: I could have bought the one that works with linux and windows osREAD FULL REVIEW
