Windows Home Server? What do i need to know before I buy it? [closed]

I appreciate that there are a variety of options that are available, but for off-the-shelf ease of use for the millions of Windows-only households out there, it’s nearly impossible to beat Windows Home Server. What should I look out for? (PS I'm not buying off-the-shelf server, I have build my own PCs/Servers for 20 years, I'm building my own :-)

"As you are just looking for a glorified shared disk, your hardware needs are pretty modest.
Read the following article:

Building your Windows Home Server box

But I would suggest not to skimp too much on the hardware."

"Check out the Server Guides in the Wiki on the ""We Got Served"" site. The forums are also a good resource - there's one devoted to self-build WHS systems.

After reusing an old Dell machine for my first WHS, I went ahead and built my own. Been very satisfied with it."
