I was trying to create a video/picture streaming server, and came across this product. For a moment I was worried if the computer would have enough horse power to do on-the-fly video transcode so the video may be consumed for different devices such as iPhone, WD TV, or big screen TV. In the end, I found it not only handled the streaming and transcode without a sweat, I was able to watch three different streams simultaneously. I am no Linux guru, but I was able to put together a media server with this amazing product.

HP MICRO G7 N40L NHP US SVR
This is truly a great little server.

The set-up was easy, adding RAM and a DVD drive were a total breeze. The new HP box booted up, I installed WHS, and haven't had to think much about it since.

I'm currently running with 14Tb (a PCI-E card + (2) 4-bay Sans Digital JBODs) and this box is quiet and runs cooler than the external drive boxes. I've experienced no problems with skipping, and that's with the server also running other processes, like podcatching, u-torrent client, and TiVo trasnfer/recoding.
