  1. Hi everyone, I've been looking for answers regarding my questions but can't seem to find them, or just don't know where to look lol. I'm a newbie when it comes to configuring the microserver as I'm actually still contemplating of getting one. I've been using a 4 bay synology for quite a while, which is why I'm attracted to using the Xpenology and DSM even though I know I can also use Freenas and other options. The reason why I'm considering the HP microserver is because it's cheaper than synology and also it is more versatile with usb ports and can attach an optical drive. I just have a few questions which I wish someone can help me with before I make the jump. 1. From the specifications, it said it can support up to 4x 3TB hdds. Can it take the WD 4TB Red instead or the 3TBs? From what I read it seems it's compatible, but I ask just to be sure. 2. One of the main reason for buying the microserver is for the USB ports, but if I use the DSM, can I actually use the usb ports to transfer files or attached external drives since I don't think DSM actually uses usb ports. 3. Apply question no. 2 to an optical drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
