Pros: Update to my Earlier Review, See cons
Cons: Update form my previous review, The packaging does not include ANY Drive Trays. This was not listed on the product description at the time of my purchase. Instead what it comes with are three dummy trays that fill the open slots but cannot have drives mounted to them. Wish I had known this from the start so i could have ordered the trays at the same time instead of having to wait from them to arrive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful looking chassis with tool free design and very high build quality. Small form factor made it perfect as a replacement to an older home server with respectable performance. Robust build quality, no flex in the case and all components mounted solid as a rock.
Cons: Only con i have so far is that they neglected to mention that it came sans 1 drive caddy. I'm assuming that's the drive that's not included but the least they could have done was give me the caddy. The caddy's themselves are $33 which after spending $700 on a server feels like a low blow.
Other Thoughts: In general I'm very happy with this machine, its performance and expand-ability are perfect for my needs and all wrapped up in a beautiful case make it a solid choice. Newegg was awesome as usual with incredibly quick delivery. Only real thorn in my side with it is that HP hits you with a hidden $33 charge for the caddy that they remove from the machine when they take the hard drive. Would give 5 stars if it had came with all 4 drive caddys.READ FULL REVIEW
