NOTE THIS IS A SERVER AND NO GOOD AS A DESKTOP AS IT ONLY HAS VGA AND NO OPERATING SYSTEM.
But
If you need a Home server or cheap server for your business then this might fit the bill and it has 3 yrs warrenty on site.

Spec:-
Form Factor Micro tower
Manufacturer Warranty 3 years warranty ( on-site )
Dimensions (WxDxH) 17.5 cm x 42.6 cm x 36.7 cm
Weight 10.5 kg
Processor 1 x AMD Dual-Core Opteron 1210 / 1.8 GHz
Hard Drive 1 x 160 GB - standard - Serial ATA-150
Networking Network adapter - PCI Express x1 - Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet
Power AC 120/230 V ( 50/60 Hz )
RAM 1 GB (installed) / 8 GB (max) - DDR II SDRAM - ECC - 667 MHz - PC2-5300
Storage Controller Serial ATA ; IDE
Graphics Controller - 2 MB
Type Server
Cache Memory 2 MB L2 Cache
Optical Storage CD-RW / DVD-ROM combo
Monitor None.
Cache Per Processor 2 MB ( 2 x 1 MB )
Server Storage Bays 3.5"
Server Scalability 1-way
Note that NO OS is included.

The deal is inclusive of £39 Cash back from HP for the extra memory BUT it must be Part No 432804-B21.
http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpresentation/index.php?product_id=HPP875422

NOTE THERE IS A HITCH WITH THE DOUBLE MEMORY REBATE
in that the server will take 1, 2 , or 4 dimms and they must be matched. As there is 2 already in the pc 1GB is no good unless you are buying 2. Worth checking with HP if you really do want the offer as I am sure they will honor it somehow or we could set up a swap club for trading 2x 512 for a 1gb or you could simply buy an extra 1gb dimm from crucial but note it must be ECC


Details on Cash back offer :- http://tinyurl.com/33mbdr
Claim form :- http://tinyurl.com/32mh5u
Qualifying Part Nos :- http://tinyurl.com/2635al

Deal made up as follows
ML115 £129.24
1GB ECC £ 45.81
P&P 5.86
Less rebate £39
Total £141.91

The ML is available cheaper elsewhere but cannot find anywhere with the memory as well although PCWB runs it close after taking account of quidco.
Worth checking Dabs as they had it for less but have no stock but their price appears to have gone up today.

A bit esoteric I know but a home server is becoming more common these days and you get embeded Nvidia Raid to boot - makes it cheaper and more usefull than a lot of NAS boxes although it is not hot plugable. Add 4 Samsung 750gb disks at £80 each (ebuyer) and you have got a great storage solution.

(Voucher FREE for free delivery appears to have expired so not included as it didnt work for my next day delivery)

Title is wrong, It's not a dual socket, it's dual core
#2
Sorry typo - meant dual core
#3
This is also availale from Microwarehouse who are part of the same group (think they share the same warehouse) and including the quidco they are a couple of pounds cheaper - but insight seem better as it's not reliant on the cashback.
Heat definitely added.
#4
great price. Ideal for a home server / small company server. If im right in reading the spec you could get this and 3 x 250gb SATA hard drives and have nearly 1tb of storage for under £250!

Chuck a decent distro of linux on there if your a home user or pickup an exchange server (10 user licence) as a microsoft action pack subscriber for small businesses and your away.
#5
i bought one of these "servers" from our supplier for £89 last week (one off price) and it is quite frankly awesome.

i bought 2gb of memory for it (taking it to 3gb) for £40

http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=6E09DFDDA5CA7304

got a copy of windows home server from microsoft (you have to pay £5 for the "dvd") - 120 day trial

put that on and it runs like a dream.

i put XP on it just to test it and it runs as smooth as you like. i would recommend a graphics card for this but apart from that it's a very very good piece of kit for the money!

:thumbsup:
#6
How good is this when compared to HP ProLiant ML110 (Intel Xeon 3040). Although, on google shopping I did find some cheaper than this ebuyer, but no luck as broken links/out of stock.
#7
Not sure but same processor speed, half the memory (1/4 if you count the extra 1gb offer) and more expensive so would say this is better.
#8
If using this for a small business - 7 pc's, how difficult would it be to set up and configure ?
Anyone have a clue as to what steps would need to be taken ?
#9
This is a poor price. Check out: http://www.lambda-tek.com/componentshop/index.pl?prodID=1360200

We use the ML110s as servers and desktop machines (they'll take WinXP, just install the drivers for Win2003 Server from the CD it ships with). Superb value for money and excellent machines.

The ML115 is basically the same as the ML110 just using AMD instead of Intel.
#11
For those of you who have this already.....
Do these processors run hot, ie are the machines noisy?
Power supply looks a little weak, hence could this run another 4 SATA drives (with another sata controller card)?
I dont know much about AMD processors hence could this run a few virtual machines (vmware) with some more ram installed?
thanks
#12
Is the AMD processor similar in performance to a similarly priced Intel?

Anyone know which Intel this would compare with?

noisy? this is a server. designed to be run in a data centre/server room. quietness isnt a priority, so yes... it will probably be quite noisy. especially compared to something like a shuttle PC

as for power. it should be fine, how did you come to the conlusion it was weak? (i cant see any specs on the PSU)

as for VM, it should be fine as long as you stick enough ram in it.

Any idea how many hdisks this will hold?.

No reason why it should be noisy/hot, I'm sure it won't be. AMD processors are fine, Opterons are pretty damn good server processors, you aren't buying "second best to intel" in this segment. Hard-disks don't use up much power, a few watts each, so it shouldn't be a problem installing 4, only be worried about power issues if you attempt putting in a graphics card as well.
#16
Just checked the specs at HP official website, downloaded the maintenance and service manual. The motherboard has a pci-express x16 and x8 slots so this will support all the latest high ed graphics cards. Yes it runs ECC error checking memory but you can upgrade this with little problem. It has space for 2 x optical drives and 4x hard drives in the case. Dual core processor and a decent psu.
With the 3 year guarantee this is a SERIOUS BARGAIN, it will run Windows XP and Vista with no problems at all. If you want a cheap base unit, that is SERVER STANDARD QUALITY then get this, it is superb bang for buck.

This seems a good price for a base unit only system.

Some points I would like to point out to assist those thinking of purchasing one;

This model, 445847-035, is now discontinued by HP (as stated on their website), but that just means you're benefitting from a lower price! :thumbsup:
http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm/WF10a/521-525-358265-358265-12083521-13153988.html?jumpid=oc_R1002_UKENC-001_HP%20ProLiant%20ML115%20Special%20Tower%20Server&lang=en&cc=uk

I would advise double checking the warranty situation.
After viewing other reseller’s websites who are advertising this same model, the stated warranty varied:

• 3 Years On-Site Warranty
http://www.pcwb.com/catalogue/item/TVHP0209
• 1 Year On-Site Warranty
• 1 Year Parts, 1 Year Labour, 1 Year On-Site (Total 1 Year?)
http://www.stuff-uk.net/?s=ST-445847-035

Finally, after checking HP’s Cash Back promotion on their website this model, 445847-035, is not listed as a qualifying product.
http://h40059.www4.hp.com/proliantcpuandmemory/qualifying-products.html#ML115

I don’t want people spending the extra on memory assuming they will get the money back.

The Intel CPU is ALOT faster than the AMD. The Xeon 3040 is just a core 2 duo e6300.

4 sata hd's would be more like an extra 100W or so. So even with a good 400W psu you're looking at reserving 25% of the power just for the hard drives.
#25
I am interested in buying a second machine and using it as a server, just for my music and movies. Anyone have any useful info about this as I don't really know what I am talking about, other than I have heard that this is quite a good thing to do?

WOuld this serve my purpose?

Thanks for posting this, and thanks to anyone that might answer my question.

Any reason why you could not add the extra memory and go for the promotion refund?
Also anyone used this supplier before, since new to me. Are they ok?

as i posted earlier this has pci-express slots so any high end express card will work with this. Vista and XP will install with no problems at all. This sure beats those cheap Dell bases.

So what intel processor would you roughly compare the AMD to? I appreciate this is not an exact science, but was just wondering... For instance is this better or worse than an E2180?

:thumbsup:

thanks loads for the reply

yeah was gonna get a dell base... no thanks now

i have an m-audio pci soundcard

what graphics card will work with this my ati one ?

or will have to buy a new one ? recommend any to go with this ?

thanks again
#31
if you download the manual that I have posted a link to earlier, it shows the motherboard layout and it has normal pci slots for your soundcard and a couple of pci-express cards. To buy a server motherboard like this would cost £100+ for a start., so to get ram, cpu, case, psu, optical drive as well + 3 year warranty.............

Bargain, and pretty powerful and expandable as well.

Have ordered one for my father-in-law, will slap an ATI X1600, pick up a cheap sound card. and install Windows XP I think this will suit him down to the ground.

Oh yes it is, go to the page and search the number using ctrl-f. It is there, offers 1gb at £39 rebate.

On another note is this probsolvexpress trustworthy, also how would i find out if they are recognised HP resellers.

#37
Ouch you nearly gave me a heartattack when you said it wasnt in the offers page..
It is there but in reality there is a problem with the memory rebate in that the server will take 1, 2 , or 4 dimms and they must be matched. As there is 2 already in the pc 1GB is no good unlesss you are buying 2.

Well done on all those who found it yet cheaper but having been bitten twice this year on returns by trying to save an extra few £s personally I am sticking woth those I know also I needed it in a hurry.

If you are going for the rebate on the extra gb then you do need to make sure that you buy them both on the same invoice and in addition the invoice MUST state the manufacturers part no.

BTW The actual PC is impressive - well made and well cooled quick too, not noisy but definately audible - vey happy.

For those of you with access to a Microsoft Action Pack or MSDN Licence and therefore have a license for Small Business Server this is absolutely perfect for the Job - add an extra nic and you are away. Makes a great home server - you and your family can access their email from any PC in the house and from any web browser etc etc.

:shock: Youve just taken 10 years off me thought I was out £80 that I hadnt budgeted for

- couldnt see it myself in the cashback thing but can now - it has two sets of ML115s confusingly and It is definately in the cashback offer (search for the part no) but see my post re memory sizes - you will either have to swap or sell the 512s or buy an extra 1gb. Luckily I bought 2.

It is definately 3 years warrenty - was in the documentation with the server.

No reason why it shouldnt make a good desktop but it has a very serious processor fan in it as well as a case fan which while not noisy are certainly not silent . The cpu cooler is impressive with lots of copper piping

you have
4 usb on the back
2 USB on the front
1 on the motherboard

So yes should do what you want no probs as long as fan noise is not an issue.
