    Bit odd that 2 of the Drive bays only support SATA2

      Also that the system does not support the FBWC on the b120i either.

      Look at the ‘Storage Controller section on Sorted’s link:

      “NOTE: Supports RAID 0/1/10 only. No FBWC support. For FBWC, a standup Smart Array Controller card must be configured.”

      To me that says you need to buy a separate controller for anything other than 0/1/10 level RAID.

        From what I read about this is about $500 for that unit if you want RAID 5, its cheaper to get a rocket raid card (4 ports SAS/SATA) card from PCCG 🙂

      The C204 chipset only supports 4x sata2 and 2x sata 3. I’ll rather would see sata 2 in all 4 drive bays. I don’t know any consumer sata HDD that does more the 300 mb/s so sata 2 would be sufficient for me. That would have left 2x sata 3 (if HP wanted to ’cause we have only 1 sata 3 port onboard) for use by SSD’s. Storagewise this server is not a real improvement compared to the NxxL series i.m.o.. You could install a P420 Raid card… but that would not justify the systems total cost. Here in the Netherlands the NxxL is ‘mainly being used as NAS or some Hypervisor by a lot of consumers. You want storagespace…lot’s of it.

      iLo: Looking at the specs… it’s pretty much basic and if you want all the bells and whistles you have to pay for licenses. Again… would it justify the total cost.

      I’m still comparing the new microserver with the old one (in modability) and that’s probably not fare. There is improvement in the CPU’s being used, 2x nic’s but other than that…it’s not what i was hoping for.
