HP ProLiant ML10 v2 Tower Server System Xeon E3-1220v3 3.1 GHz 4 GB RAM DVD-RW

4 out of 5 eggs Great specs for the price but difficult to set up 03/31/2016

This review is from: HP ProLiant ML10 v2 Tower Server System Xeon E3-1220v3 3.1 GHz 4 GB RAM DVD-RW

Pros: Entry level Xeon processor that's excellent for a small business or lab server. Well-built and very quiet, can be set up in the office without bothering anyone. Ability to connect 5 HDDs/SSDs (6 if you don't need the optical drive). Uses a standard ATX power supply.

Cons: As others have said, you need to download the latest Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) from HP to use the darn thing. I couldn't enter the RAID controller configuration without it, so I was unable to install an OS out of the box. Not only is it a 5.12GB download, you have to sign in to HP's website with an active warranty or support agreement to "officially" obtain it. I tried and tried to jump through all of the hoops I was supposed to go through but eventually ended up searching for an alternate download location. Luckily, HP does have a public FTP/HTTP site where you can download it (I would link to it here but I don't think Newegg likes that). After I was finally able to configure my RAID arrays and booted to the OS media, I could not find the correct RAID driver on the SPP disc in all of its 5.12GB glory. After another web search I found the right driver and eventually got everything going but I am glad I wasn't under a strict deadline since it took much longer than I anticipated to configure.

Other Thoughts: I have worked with several similar entry-level servers from Lenovo, Dell and custom built a few of my own and have never had as much trouble as I did with this HP. I guess if you know what you're getting yourself into it is fine but I really find it unnecessary for HP to make a simple small office server setup so difficult.

Night Owl NOPEN-4GB-B Executive Camera Pen with Pre-installed 4GB of Memory
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great idea!

Cons: Battery goes bad and you have to ship it in to replace (WITH RECEIPT ONLY) and after having it replaced once the battery went bad again. If you don't have a receipt, you will not get help even if you offer money!
Really stupid that the battery lasts such a short while.
Maybe if the quality was better it would be an acceptable item.

Other Thoughts: Why make a pen/camera (such a cool idea) that breaks or doesn't work in such a short time and not give the person the capability of changing the battery themselves? Seems like a no-brainer to me
