Rather than the other review, which sounds like it was written by someone with zero knowledge of server systems, I thought I would give it a go.

I bought the microserver to run VMware ESXi 5.1, running a lab, and a file server / few domain controllers for my home network.

the microserver is cheap, well made, and performs better than I was expecting, especially as it has an underpowered AMD processor.

The 250GB drive supplied was put on ebay, and sold, and I replaced it with 2 x 1TB WD Black drives, which performed fine.
I have since purchased an adaptec raid card from ebay, and these drives are in a Mirror / Raid 1 configuration.

I have installed 2 x 8GB Crucial memory, and also an Intel Server NIC

All in all, I have a server that's on 24/7, uses less than 50w of power, and easily runs 10 VMs at once without issue.

As for the comments from the other reviewer, why in gods name would you need audio and any other graphics capabilities, this is a small business / home server, not a workstation.

Anyway, that's my two pence worth.

I purchased this server to run VMware

I purchased 16GIG RAM and a 3TB Hard drive and installed without any issue.

I installed VMware esxi without any problems. I then installed MS Server 2012ENT; MS 2008 Server ENT and Linux Server 64. I am totally surprised at how quickly it boots up 2012.

For the price this is a great little kit

I've got two of these beauties running ESXi 5.5 using my NAS as iSCSI storage and it works brilliantly for a home lab (I'm a VMware engineer and need something to test on without the expense of buying enterprise servers/storage) but you will need to upgrade a couple of components first:

RAM - though it says that the Microserver only supports a maximum of 8GB you can in fact install 16GB RAM (2 x 8GB modules) after applying the latest firmware updates.

Network card - I have installed a dual port PCIe NIC to separate the host management and VM network traffic, using just the one NIC can lead to network problems.

I've not bothered about a DVD drive because I install everything from ISO images and have also removed the hard drive and install ESXi onto a USB key which means less moving parts for quieter operation, this is great because if I need to go back to an old version of ESX/ESXi I just chuck one of my other preinstalled keys in and boot up on the version I need.

The unit itself is a great, compact little thing which, considering the cost, is surprisingly quiet and feels very solid. It can be a bit tight sliding the system board in and out when upgrading components but is very robust so don't be afraid if you have to take the server apart for any reason.

Can't recommend these servers highly enough so keep an eye out for cash back deals which do come along quite often but sell out almost immediately.

Really fantastic piece of kit. Arrives well packaged, well documented. it's easy to work with, comes with the hp torx kit for the screws. I've opted for the rebate so this will have cost £55 rather than the £155 so is a great deal. I'm using it as a home nas running ubuntu (my preference) and it's flawless. The unit sits in a cupboard, is quiet and low power. Doesn't have a lot of CPU but then again doesn't need it. It's larger than it looks in the pictures and is about 1.5ft high and I've got to say, incredibly well built. It disassembles easily if you want to upgrade the memory (I haven't) and has slots for an add in card should you need it. Has an abundant amount of USB ports for anything you want to connect. I'm incredibly impressed, it's replaced my D-Link DNS32 with ease and that unit has gone in the spare-parts-cupboard. If you're considering one of these then stop considering, check if you can get the rebate and simply get one. You won't be disappointed.

I bought this to act as a media server, to replace a NAS drive that had been causing me great problems. I put Windows 8 Professional on it, as I wanted to be able to remote-desktop into it [it's hidden away, with no screen, keyboard or mouse].

It has more than fulfilled my expectations. Its low power-drain means low running costs, which is important for a device that is left on 24/7.

One word of warning: It needs a BIOS update in order to be able to upgrade to Windows 8.1. You can't get the BIOS upgrade unless you register it with HP - and to do that you need to realise that it was supplied from Spain.

This is by far and away been the best IT related purchase I've bought in along time.

As a nippy piece of cheap storage equipment it excels in every category.

I'm running Synology DSM 4.3 on this, it runs from a USB drive (there's one inside so tucked out of the way). That's given me use of all four HD's for storage, I'm running 2x 4TB WD red + 2 x 3TB WD red.

I've also bought me a ICYDock bay changing the 5.25" into 6x 2.5" bays. It's not in use just yet, tested it though and it works fine. In essence, without using the USB drives this little box is capable of having 28TB of storage.

Quiet, low power, capable and upgradeable. No complaints at all.
