Helping New Zealand rank well at number 2 on the global WHS World Cup standings are a wide range of home servers from local system builders.

One of these systems, the PlayTech Home Server which is a AMD Athlon X2 4600+ processor based system, is reviewed in the May issue of New Zealand ‘s PC World. The review is authored by Sam Wood, a member of the WGS community and author of the great WHS Disk Management add-in. The review is two pages long but doesn’t appear to be available online, a short extract is included below (the extract covers an area we are all familiar with along with the rating on the system).

Sam does comment positively on many of the features of this well spec’d system from local NZ System Builder PlayTech  who have chosen to use the Silverstone SG01 case but does point out “a major letdown with the Chieftec SNT-2131 SATA hot-swap expansion bay handles…… being light and flimsy” and adds that “the built in 80mm fan still rivals the original NVIDIA slot coolers in overall noise production.”
