nice to see see them coming down in price, but im going to wait for the £100 mark before i replace my n54l

nice, I bought it for the same price from Monoprice few months back (but no cashback) and I have one ssd for the OS and 4x3tb drivers and is also very silent

Good deal, but kinda hoping for a cashback deal for the server plus 8 port switch

I'm tempted but I think I will resist for now and wait till they're £100. This is still a hot deal

I asked ebuyer on twitter recently if they would price match Serversplus which was 14quid cheaper and they said they don't price match. But low and behold, 2 days later and they've dropped their price by £15!!

Your welcome!

HP kinda took a dump on the consumer/corporate when they started charging for driver updates.

I agree i will hold out for sub £100.I do prefer this Gen 8 though much better looking than the old models.

Wish dell would come out with something similar.

HP suck.

Good deal, they are a very capable machine with a Quad Core and SSDs fitted. Not sure if these will hit the £100 mark, I'm tempted at this price but to be honest I don't really need a 2nd. I'm wondering when the Gen9 is going to turn up.

Looks like a decent enough upgrade to the N54L, however it was the sub £100 price point which made the N54L so appealing.

At least the N40Ls used to be sub-£100 after cash back and came with a 250GB SATA disk, better than this deal at the time. The N54Ls were decently discounted too. Perhaps HP have wised up and will not be so generous this time round.

Any good for Plex? (large 15gb MKV streams)

the Gen 8 was higher priced to begin with so % wise the discount is probably the same


I received mine from Servers Plus yesterday finally after a 3 week wait. I was a little disappointed that they hadn't thrown in a little extra as a thank you for my patients...a dvd rom, a usb stick for esx, not even a pack of haribo

but the server itself is tidy and I look forward to having a play

Can this fit 6 drives with 2 in the optical bay as n54l and n40l can?

Pictures suggest they cannot due to the slimline optical drive - shame.

HP got greedy and are shaking the pennies from consumers pockets.

Dell have tried with the t20, but it's not quite there yet.

if you have the space, the xeon powered lenovo TS140 is a lot of server for the money and a worthy microserver replacement.

You are comparing the price of very different machines however. The Gen8 server is the first one that allows you to replace the CPU, for instance, making it much more upgradeable than the N36L, N40L and N54L. I personally prefer this feature than a pretty useless 250GB Seagate drive I have no use for.

This would be very good for Plex. I set up an N40L for my father recently and that is working great already.

Got the n54l sometime ago from insight for £75 (after cashback), after a friend talked me into it. Great little machine for sabnzb and plex setup. My one is left switched on 24/7 and you hardly notice it's running.

Will wait for this to drop to the £100 also, then I'll bite!

Are you a healthcare practitioner?

What really are these?

What can they be used for?

Could they say, run an application?

My cousin plays a game called evony, and uses bots for it (as everyone does) at the moment he is using my old acer laptop which will run 20 instances of the bot with ease. The bots need to be altered every so often so need some way to see what's actually (on screen) like a computer. I can't help but think if its possible for a microserver to run them, it would be better.

Can anyone help with any information on this? If you need details on the bot, you can find it at neatportal, or just Google neat bot.

Requirements would be to run 20 or more instances of the bot (all managed by an application called 'the director' without problem, and be able to be viewed on a screen, so that the bots can be reprogrammed to do the desired tasks as needed, HDMI or VGA would be required also, and the ability to connect a mouse & keyboard.

Presumably better stock control

Another good Gen8 deal, I'll stick with my N40L until they come down further though

Was thinking of upgrading my 54L to one of these what do people think?

Exactly same use as i use mine for and mines been on 24/7 since February 2014 and has never missed a beat and its dealing with around 100+ shows in sickbeard so it earns its money. Great machine

Would it not be a better deal to purchase this from Serverplus as they do the cash back of £35 in addition to another £35 if you buy the NBD Foundation Care HP Care Pack. Considering an active warranty or contract is required to access HP ProLiant Server Firmware updates?
ServerPlus

Or are the firmware updates not that important ?



Any advice would be most helpful oO

I like the look of that TS140. I'm after something powerful enough to run a small vmware farm and that server takes 32gb ram which is what I want and the cpu doesn't look too shabby either with a benchmark of just under 7000. 32GB ram looks to be about £320 off crucial.com/uk though.

But then from £750 onwards you can get a Dell XPS 8700 with 32gb ram and better specs...

Im after a new pc that can be left on 24/7 for downloading and plex streaming (full HD rips) purposes but will also carry out day to day tasks to a high (fast) standard and play internet video without juffer/stutter (current revo setup is fast, silent but fails on streamed video from sites like nbc sports etc)
Would this machine be any good for the above?

Depends on what you want it for I suppose. The Lenovo with the Xeon supports ECC RAM, VT-D pass through and Intel AMT remote console access. One is a server, the other is a desktop.

Why would a microserver be better? Because the microbots will serve you better in a server? Your laptop does the job. Why change it?
Check the CPU benchmarks of your laptop and the microserver for a start to compare their CPU power.

This microserver has a Matrox G200 card builtin which just about manages full HD in 16 bit color on a VGA connector.
I believe the CPU's built internal graphics is disabled which would have at least supported true color and multiple displays and possibly half decent video decoding.
I'm not sure an internal graphics card would help with NBC sports decoding, though. Depends on their stream format and your player.
You may need a separate graphics card. Not sure that'd help
