    I brought a HP ProLiant ML110 G7 end of last year with 16Gb of RAM, Quad Xeon 3Ghz, 2x 2Tb Disks, Quad GIG NIC and built it as my Hyper-V Server - running about 4 VM's off it.

    cost AND size are a factor . . .

    Ideally id buy a ML110 G6 with 16GB Ram but I dont think id have anywhere to put it! We live in a 3 bed semi and have 3 young children so things have to be hidden away lol. The microserver's size is ideal as I can put it in a sideboard and close the door away from prying little fingers.

    Hid mine in the attic for 3 years, along with my switch and Routers. Could faintly hear the drone but not sleep disturbing.

    Currently awaiting on a delivery of two N40L-series Microservers to add to my home network. They join a ESXi-hosting DL360 G5 and a custom-built file/backup server. I'm toying with having them as ESXi hosts but there's the option of setting up a DC properly and using the other one as a WDS server.

    Ive just bought a HP N54L which was 99 after cashback so well worth it. I bumped another 8GB ram in it so i have a nice 10gb to start with. Only downside ive found is its AMD and im having to fudge it to get my Mountain Lion Server running so I can replicate my work environment.

    So I will have Windows Server 2008r2 and Mountain lion server. i might possibly add a server 2012

    This server is silent i cant even here it on in my spareroom when working in there

    I have the newly released N54L, and purchased another 8GB chip (1333MHz, 35 in PC World :-) ).

    Currently it's running OmniOS with Napp-IT. I did play about with the BSD implementations of ZFS, as well as ZFS on Linux, but speed and stability are enough to justify running a mutant child of Solaris.

    The next step is running a Debian variant on there (probably Ubuntu server) and running OmniOS in KVM. Assuming whether or not I can find out if PCIe passthrough is supported on this version...

    I have the N54L, got it for 189.99 with 100 cash-back so in effect it cost 89.99
    I use it as a media storage server with WHS2011 running so, and Plex Media server streaming to my devices (xbox/tablet/roku)

    Cannot fault it, even with just 2GB RAM its great
