Most helpful reviews

Philip , Winchester

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
This is a powerful server for the money and so represents good value.
Bad points:
I was loading SBS 2011. The HP Intelligent Provisioning is very poor. First go to the HP Support website and download the new version. Google how to put upgrade. The raid via provisioning does not pick up raid drivers when installing SBS 2011. You have to install SBS2011 direct via boot from disk then add raid driver. If you use disks bigger than 2TB remember SBS 2011 does not support bigger than 2TB. Subsequent disks need to use GUID rather than MBR to see the whole size of the disk. Windows backup only supports 2TB. Hope this helps you spend less time than me to load up your server.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Runs perfectly with ESXi 5.5 and we have 14 Virtual machines running on ours (a mixture of servers & desktops) but with all those eggs in one basket we had to buy a 2nd server which is also fine as they are such great value (particularly with the cash-back)
Bad points:
No real bad points. Excellent budget server but with little built-in redundancy you do need a 2nd one!
