    was thinking of building an atom based server but might get one of these instead. any thoughts.

    depends on what you plan to do. i have an atom based server and it streams to my squeezebox, downloads, monitors my security cameras and only draws 18 watts.

    Voted cold as this is misleading.

    To get cashback you have to buy it as part of a bundle, which means paying a lot extra for their care package, or windows server OS. You do not get any cashback on just the server.

    I think you are wrong. According to HP:

    How to qualify
    Simply purchase a qualifying HP ProLiant
    Microserver (part code 612275-421) between 1 and
    31 December 2010 and complete this form to claim
    your £100 cash back. It’s as simple as that!
    Terms apply. Offer limited to five units per customer.

    They've changed it. I bought one (at work) delivered 28 Nov, but they have only just invoiced me. The old offer was just the OS or carepack for free. I'll give it a try. Shame work will get the refund.

    yeah i only plan to run it as a file server/ download machine. i think you'd struggle to build it this cheap though.

    Agree but you will recover cost of item easily as i guess this would take well over 100 watts per hour. It does not sound a lot but times it by 24 hours and it adds up. Plus my server will wake up daily at a set time and will close down for the night using windows 7 if i require it to do so. Plus it is almost silent. Its horses for courses again but i am done with chucking money away on power hungry computers when i dont need to. Just my opinion of course.
    adam2116
    so the server acts as a central hub?

    My main problem was trying to find a atom based mobo with more than 2 sata ports. I already have 3*1TB drives that i want to put in.

    How would you set this up as a download machine for usenet, and then as a media server?

    And as for saving power, turn it off when not using it?

    200 watts according to specs

    I'm thinking about this for a small development server.
    richwest
    The included power supply is 200 watts, that doesn't mean the machine actually draws 200 watts - it's the rated maximum. This uses a mobile chipset so the power draw is reasonably low. Various forum threads suggest typically around 30W, but will obviously be more if you install all the possible addon cards and hard drives, depending on their power draw.

    I bought one of these when it was only on £50 cashback last month (damn!) and it's an excellent little machine, works fine with either CentOS or Windows Server 2008 R2 (or at least it works fine as a home fileserver with server 2008, would be a bit slow for heavy duty tasks).
    amdavies
    As a very rough estimate, Watts per hour = £/year. So, if this does draw 30 Watts per hour, it would cost around £30 per year if left on all the time.
    Again, very rough ball park estimating.

    The CPU inside ( AMD NEO according to HP) is meant to be better than the equivalent speed Atom.

    And another question, which may be ridiculous, would this run xbmc?

    It would run it, but it wouldn't be ideal as a media box because it only has a VGA display out. You'd probably need to add a graphics card. This is better as a fileserver/downloading/NAS box in my opinion, you can get media boxes that decode HD and come with a remote control for the same money if not a fraction cheaper.
    McMike
    There's a detailed review of this at the techhead.co.uk site. Click on Hot Deals for the blog links. I think he reckoned it drew 70w on average. Voting hot as a few quid cheaper than serversplus.

    I think this would be poor for xbmc because of the vga output and chipset.

    i'll probably run it as a download machine by setting up sabnzbd/episode butler/couch potato.

    Not much good as a sever then if you have to keep turning it off is it

    ought
    What if I install sabnzb, xbmc, put in a PCI express graphics card with HDMI out for maybe £30?

    Then I set 2 harddrives in raid for storage and backup, use a 3rd drive for downloading, and run from the included 160gb.

    Then I have a NAS and media server in one? Sounds good no?

    If that is doable, how hard is it to set up for a Linux novice? Thanks ;o)

    guerilla
    I wouldn't think it was that hard. You might just be able to install xbmc live and then sab ontop of that.

    If i was dojng as you though i might put in either a bluray/dvd drive and have an entire frontend in one.
