N40L, WHS2011 > SE2012R2, Worth it?

Recommended Posts


Move the plex stuff over to your spare system and transcode your stuff on that instead


WHS 2011 will deal with everything else, unattended, for years yet


Lots of people are jumping on the 2012 bandwagon... but to be truthful it's way over priced and above "most" general home users requirements.


HP222's are near enough the same price as a Gen 8 , here in the UK, so investing in that for a "average" user seems ridiculous on top of the cost of 2012 essentials


UK prices, at the moment, .... approx £300 for the RAID controller (HP222) and £300 - £500 for 2012 Essentials R2


I think I'll wait until 2011 can no longer get out of bed and swap to FreeNAS or a Linux server instead............... :)
