Everything else about it is pretty accurate. The unit comes with 4 bays
I bought this server as a training tool for myself. Let me start off by saying that it is not for a newb.. This server requires configuration before you can even install an OS. Also, there is no Optical Drive on it. This picture is misleading in that aspect. Everything else about it is pretty accurate. The unit comes with 4 bays, and two 1TB Sata Drives. Its a small form factor case and can honestly fit anywhere. You can not hot swap the drives on this server. If you plan on upgrading it the way that I did, you are going to need some things.. My server now has 5 SSD's (4 in a raid 10 and 1 drive used for the OS), a DVD burner, and 16GB of ECC Ram. One of which is the HP 462919-001 Smart Array P410 8-Port SAS RAID Controller. Be sure to also get the SAS mini splitter cable with it. I also got the icy dock SSD converter. Everything needed for the upgrade can be found here on amazon except the 4-pin Floppy to 15P SATA Power Converter Adapter Cable, that I had to get from ebay.

Buyer Beware! Server specs are falsely advertised. Amazon ...
Buyer Beware! Server specs are falsely advertised. Amazon has been aware this for months and has not corrected. Advertised processor is the 3.1 GHz xenon, but unit ships with slower 2.3 GHz xenon. Otherwise, server specs and functionality are as advertised.

Nice quiet SOHO server.
By Gary Gendel
This will replace my 10+ year old file, web, email server in my home. Runs OmniOS like a champ (have to change the disk controller to AHCI first). Best of all it's really quiet, faster, and draws way less power than what it replaces.
