  • Good internal design and expansion potential; E5-2600 v3 Xeon support; Generous storage capacity; Top value
  • Huge and confusing range of storage options

SMBs looking to upgrade to a purpose-built tower server will find HP's new ProLiant ML150 Gen9 has everything they could possibly want and at a price that'll suit their budget. Measuring a modest 200 x 630 x 432mm (WDH), it supports dual Xeon E5-2600 v3 CPUs, can handle up to 512GB of fast DDR4 memory and has room for 64TB of storage.

Of course, all that doesn't come as standard. HP's Gen9 mantra is buy now, upgrade later so you can add extra components as the need arises.

We review the most basic preconfigured system which costs a shade over 900. This includes a single 1.6GHz E5-2603 v3 Xeon, 4GB of memory and one unpopulated quad LFF cold-swap drive bay.

The ML150 Gen9 offers plenty of room inside for essential upgrades and easy access for maintenance
