Very good product not had it long but so far so good. Customised it running 6 drives with 16gb ram.
Bad points:
Standard ram a bit low should be at least 4gb. Needs a graphics card

Andrew, Cheltenham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Cheap and effective. Doesn't do anything flashy but then you're not paying for that. Worked straight out of the box and easy to install extra components if you need them.
Bad points:
Not necessarily a bad point but something I had an issue with, it has a half height PCI port which doesn't fit the shortened brackets so the extra video card with HDMI I installed is having to survive without a bracket so is a little loose.

David, Hungerford IT professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A fantastic piece of kit, especially with the £100 cashback available until 30/06/2013 which brings the price down to around £90 - £110 depending where you buy it. HP often do cashbacks on their small servers, so there may be another one along in a minute.

Major plus points:

* Cheap
* Fast
* Quiet
* Small
* Well built

I bought mine as a PC rather than a server, and it does the job very well. Just add a £15 DVD drive and a £2 USB sound dongle, and install the OS of your choice (I used Windows 7 Pro 64bit but any recent Windows desktop or server OS or Linux variant will run ok) and you're away for a fraction of the price of anything comparable. It's no games machine, but perfect for general use.

The built-in Radeon 4200 graphics are fine for browsing and office use. The memory's upgradable to 16Gb, although the supplied 2Gb is more than adequate for the average home PC / server.
Bad points:
A bit cramped inside for doing upgrades. Adding HDDs is a piece of cake though.

No integrated sound, although this isn't particularly relevant if you're using it for a server as nature intended.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Pretty good form-factor
Installed a DVD drive without much hassle
Bad points:
The unit could have been more compact - even when loaded with 4 HDDs and 1xDVD drive. This is a minor gripe though.
