Replacement unit seems OK

Pros: Small, faster then my old N40L, same layout, takes at least 16GB or ECC RAM. Low noise fan for the hard drives, no fan for CPU, less things to go wrong. Works with Kingston ValueRAM 4GB 240 pin DDR3 1333 ECC Unbuffered memory KVR1333D3E9S/4G and KVR1333D3E9S/8G.

Cons: BIOS does not recognize the same PS2 keyboard to USB which works fine with N40L. USB keyboard attached directly works - but my KVM does not. No software updates unless you register, including BIOS updates needed to fix known bugs. Provides only Molex 4 pin power, need to get separately an adapter for SATA power. No SATA cable for the optical drive slot included.

Other Thoughts: Easy to fit a mesh blank panel for the optical drive slot instead of the solid plastic it comes with. Good place for a fifth 3.5" drive and plenty of room for a 2.5" boot drive as well (with a PCI Xpress adapter for extra SATA ports). It also has inside the box an open slot for a USB stick, so if your OS can boot from USB, it is a very nice touch.

BIOS updates only during warranty period

Pros: Owning the hardware isn't sufficient for BIOS updates. You must be within warranty period. And I don't know how they determine the start date of your 1 year window -- it was BEFORE I purchased it.

Cons: HP bureaucracy

Other Thoughts: You must link an "entitlement" with your user ID. Not my words, HP's.

Nice Little Server

Pros: Perfect little server for a Plex server, I put 4 3tb hard drives and raided them to 5, software raid in windows 2012, mines came with the latest bios which for this unit in 10/2013 version, There is no other bios for this unit other then those hacked ones that will most likely brick your server. Don't know what that guy was talking about care package, I admit it is tricky to get this thing registered but once you register you sign up for an account on the website that comes on the little yellow paper that comes with the server and link the registration to your account that's it and it does not cost anything, so not sure what that dude was talking about. But after that you can download the drivers which if you are installing Server 2012 like I did you don't even need them which are only like 4 drivers listed anyway and 1 being the 10/2013 bios which Like I said is already flashed to that out of the box.

Cons: Wish it had the port multiplier on the esata port would be nice to add an extension to a nas box. Other than that really nice

Other Thoughts: You can even load your Opsys via USB to a sata drive which I used instead of a DVD drive in the expansion bay, in the bios you do have to change from auto to 3gb sec, for some reason mobo uses the slower which is 1.5gb sec when I ran benchmark between the 2 settings, big difference in 3gb

Great product, bad policies

Pros: Compact
good price
Well built

Cons: VGA port can be finnicky
HP Support
Bios updates

Other Thoughts: I was very excited to receive this product, I am very excited to have this product, I am amazed at how much I could do with this product. All of that is dampened by the hoops I had to jump through to update the biuos. I will not go over the nonsense that is HP's policy but it is enough to dock 2 stars of a really nice little server.
I installed another 4GB ECC module I had on hand and installed ESXI 5.5 without issue. I spun up 3 VMs running "A NAS "Distro"", Centos 7 and windows 7. These provide what I call an SMB-in-a-box.
4x3TB RAID 5 array with continuous offsite backup.
Samba 4 Domain Controller (Windows Server 2003 compatible)
Admin PC running RSAT with other domain and storage management tools.
Very pleased with the hardware and hopefully I will never need to contact HP for anything in the future concerning this box. I would buy another if not for HP support.

Poor Suppor

Pros: None

Cons: HP requires you have an active Care Package in order to download firmware or bios updates.

The Gen 7s have an issue loading Microsoft Server 2012 R2 because of hardware instability caused by the embedded NIC.

If your goal is to use Server 2012 on this ensure you update the bios prior to your 1 year warranty expiring. And don't plan on doing anything that requires updates after it it has expired. A new care pack costs double what I paid for the server initially.

Nice little server but....

Pros: Compact and intelligently laid out. Works with Windows, Linux so flexible as far as OS goes. Easy access hard drives.

Cons: Proprietary motherboard. Would have been nice if HP had used a standard size motherboard. If the one in the box fails, you have to replace it with the exact HP part number. If out of warranty, the motherboard costs almost as much as the entire server. Would be nice if there was an off the shelf motherboard replacement for this otherwise very nice case and internals.

4 USB 2.0 sockets on the front. Would be nice if they substituted two of those with a USB 3.o and eSata connection instead.

Other Thoughts: I really like this little server other than the rather large issues I listed above. Nice build quality and easy to work with. If I had had a less expensive alternative to the HP motherboard when I needed a replacement, I would have given this 5 stars. Just does not seem right that this one part essentially turns the server into scrap when it fails.

FYI, I did like it enough to buy another one of these servers after the first server died after less than 2 year's use.

Amazing little server, small & quiet. With ample expansion

Pros: Well built, small footprint (important for me) and good expandability.
Neat little design

Cons: I'm not thrilled about the HP support requiring registration to d/l drivers. And once the warranty period expires I am lead to believe I will not have access to firmware updates (unless I purchase a smartnet extension).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this with four 4TB hard drives running RAID 5 off a Highpoint Rocketraid 2720SGL. I am booting from a Crucial 128SSD to CENTOS 6.5. And for added expandability I installed a Icy Dock 3.5/2.5 hot swap drive dock and a 4 port USB 3.0 Card. I had a low profile ASUS SBW-06C1S-U/DBLU/G blu ray burner to round out the deployment. 12TB Raid, 6TB docked drives of storage. Surprisingly fassst!
