I've spoken with HP representatives a little bit, but I would like to get some real-world feedback.
I need a few servers and have pretty much settled on HP. I'm curious about the differences between the 100 and 300 series, aside from the basic differences in configurations and warranty.
I can configure something like a D180 to have similar specifications as a D380, including redundant fans and power and warranty, and they price out similarly. From what I've read the 100 series has a lower build quality than the 300, and that's something that I'm not going to find in a spec sheet.
If you've worked with models in each line, what are your opinions?
