It arrived this morning http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/10304-hp-proliant-ml10v2-xeon-e3-1220-27999/

 

So I couldn't wait to unbox it

It was like being at the Meetup when Schoondoggy unboxed his new ML10v2 from TigerDirect

It's bigger than my MicroServer G8 so hopefully that means I can cram more stuff in it :)

I unbox my HP ProLiant ML10v2 with Xeon E3-1220 that had newly arrived from TigerDirect Business.  I plan to eventually load 32GB of RAM and use this as a VM server but along the way I plan to try out different OS and Drive configurations.

Wow, I considered anything below $300 a GREAT deal so I thought $279 was worth jumping on but $229 is incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Click on the old link and it's now $229. Maybe I should build this out instead of getting a NAS?

Load it up with memory and you would not have any concerns with Plex performance!

The 4 cores will make Plex very happy IMHO!

It will be awhile before I can load it up with a Power Meter attached to see what it actually does but it's a new enough design I wouldn't expect it to be "bad" but you have to realize you would have a Xeon E3 in there and not an Atom --

Some have asked about the Drive Connections -- here's a picture

Here's the SAS FanOut for 4 drives in the cage

Notice the power connector for cable management at the drive connection

 

Don't forget to check the Quickspecs http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=c04567802
