I like the fact that it's so easy to expand the Microserver, and I'd use it as a media and backup server.

I like that it's quiet.  Not a sophisticated answer I know, but I volunteer with an organisation that has a constant buzzing which drives me nuts (I've taken to wearing noise cancelling headphones which is very antisocial but does the trick).  Yep, if I win it definitely gets donated to them to upgrade their technical stuff.

With the size of HP Microserver Gen8, this is the perfect home server for me.  It also includes two up front usb ports for easy deployment.

The feature that attracts me most is the four 3.5” bays, I have multiple hard drives doing nothing at home so being able to use them all in the HP server will give me a chance to use RAID for both capacity and data durability which I cannot do with my current NAS situation.

HP's MicroServer would make a spectacular Hyper-V server.  Especially with an addin SAS RAID card.

Thanks geekzone for providing this review and giveaway!

I am a proud owner of a hp microserver n54l, and I'm enthusiastic with it.
I have being using it as my home server as a files server, torrentbox, media server etc.
I recently incorporated it into my vSphere home lab as my "poor's man SAN".

Now I see that it got even better: more processing grunt, dual NICs, USB 3 ports... I can only imagine what I could do with it!

The 16gb max ram and dual ethernet ports (2gbs throughput with trunking? /drool) alone, would make this a valuable upgrade to my home network.  My current EasyStore h430 currently hosts multiple movie & tv show library streams, PC game files, remote boot and client backups and lord help me if I ran a VM on it simultaneously! LOL

This would suite perfectly as I need something with the simple storage capabilities of a NAS and some added features of a full server.

Impressive specs for such a small package.  A little disappointed in the cost of the hard drives, but you get what you pay for.
