Best bang for the buck
Pros: Best bang for the buck. More value than Dell PowerEdge T110 II - very quiet box - Smart Array B110i does RAID 0, 1 - comes with Smart Array Advanced Pack to enable hot plug dives - integrated iLO3 - Kingston ECC RAM working with no problems so far - regular SATA drives work perfectly with the 3rd party drive caddy
Cons: - Requires drive caddy from another site, 15 bucks each. See part number from other reviewer below.
Overall Review: Very happy with my purchase so far. Best bang for the buck!

Pros: Overall I'm very happy with this server - Runs ESX 5.0 with a BIOS tweak (google it) - iLO3 is on port 1. (google it for the advanced iLO3 activation code) - ProLiant SmartStart is superior to what Dell has
Cons: - Can't do RAID 1 in ESX 5.0 because the SmartArray B110i is not recognized. - ESX will crash on boot if you don't do the CPU tweak in the BIOS.
