Yes there is... the cashback is from HP, not from the supplier, all you do is send a copy of your invoice to HP

The cashback is direct from HP, not the retailer, so it is still valid, unless Crescent have suddenly become a none HP authorised reseller.

I have one of these. Brilliant little machine. I use it with OCZ gold DDR3 and cheap Play.com DDR3 and it works lovely.
#6
so tempted to buy one.....

would def make a good home server

Nice even better :)

Great little box. Works perfectly with some extra memory as esx/freenas server. After a bios hack you can use more than 4 hdds in it (got 5 currently) with full speed.
However, as mentioned it's cheaper at Crescent.
#9
I tried FreeNAS, Ubuntu, WHS and Fedora on here. All worked nicely. Has no audio out so just got an ATI 4350 with audio over HDMI to use for a media box/server.
#10
I bought one a couple of months ago. The £100 cash back takes a month or so to come through but I can confirm I had no issues. The server itself I loaded up ESXi 4.1 on it, added 4GB ram and shunted 4 Sata 3.5 inch drives in there. Really nice as a basic ESXi test box. Works great as a small linux or windows server too, and runs under load at around 40watts - which is great if you want a box to run 24/7 cheaply. Has 4 USB on the front, and only lacks a sound card if thats what you like (has a slot for a low profile one or get a USB one or whatever)

Its only got dual 1.3ghz cpu's, so really is only applicable to light or medium work loads in a general sense. As a fun virtualisation box, a media box and that kind of thing, its great.

Noise, makes next to no noise. Its fan design is one of being large and slow spinning.
For £99 its very hard to complain about these at all. Great little product.
#11
Does this only do RAID 0 and 1? Not so great if it can take 4 drives as you would have to run them as RAID 0 I guess?

Edit: Do you have to run specific HDD in this i.e,. for a ReadyNAS it has a list of certain brands/models only or is it not fussy?

You are better using software raid. If the mobo goes on the HP box, then you can't recover your info. With software raid (Freenas Raid 5 is what I use) you should be dandy.

It's a great little box. I have mine runing freenas from the internal USB. It's pretty queit, though I do keep it in a cupboard. Solid build too.
#13
Ok, hadnt thought of that. Using FreeNAS to do the RAID is a much better way of doing it.

Will play around with FreeNAS on a spare USB key this evening and see how easy it is to configure as my ReadyNAS Duo (2x 500GB) is full now and I have 2x spare 500GB HDD lying around so I could use all 4 in this server instead.
#14
It even comes with what appears to be an opening for a 5.25" big optical drive. Is this correct?

Way better than eMachines £99 nettop as this can more easily play disks and so form the centre of a home entertainment centre.

How do I get it for the £99 alluded to earlier? TCB?
#15
Is this case amenable to replacing the mobo?

Is the mobo amenable to replacing the cpu?

What technology size (lithography) is the cpu? The chipset?

no and no. It's a N36L neo processor.
#17
Ok, as far as I am aware no is not a feature size in lithography and AMD are about as open about this as the mobo is to cpus.
#18
any ideas on best price for 4GB or 8GB ram for this ?

See above. The little micros server continues to be on sael at £199 in several places and the £100 cash back is available to boot.
#21
That price is ex-vat though. Its £240 with so Crescent is still cheaper.

Does it have a slot for the GFX card?

Just bought the E1402 for £99 from ebuyer, but if I can add a GFX card to this am tempted to flog that.
#24

Why would people buy one for it if it didn't have a GPU slot?


Perhaps I should have been a little clearer with my question. Is it designed to accommodate a GPU, i.e. slot in the correct position in the back of the chassis?
#25
It has 2x PCI card slots available if that is what you mean. Listed in the original post and shown in the image here:

Thanks, that answers my question. I saw the PCI slots in the description, but wasn't sure if the chassis actually had the slots in it.

Tempted to sell the ER1402 and get one of these now. hmmmmm decisions, decisions.

How has the ATI 4350 worked out for you? I'm asking as the requirements for this card are a 300W PSU, so wondered how it works in this machine. Also, did you have any issues getting audio to work over it? Cheers
#29
If you still want this then the server must be delivered by May 31 according to the claim form. Not sure how they are going to check this but dont leave it too late...
#30
Cashback extended until the end of June.
