Second Hand Server Rack PC


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I am in the market for a second hand server rack and wondered if anyone had any experience setting one up? I have been looking at both HP & Dell on ebay in the UK.


For example:


  • HP DL380p Gen8 G8 12*LFF
  • Dell R720


I have seen a few postings on the HP DL380p as it has a hardware RAID controller, like the Dell ones. I just wondered:


  1. If anyone had any experience setting up a second hand rack server? Is there something I should watch out for?
  2. Any recommendations on servers that are easy to setup?


I will be using the server as a NAS w/ VMs / containers running newsgroup items and Plex server. Though plex server won't need any transcoding.
