The front of the server has 2 USB ports, a reset button and the on/off button.

To access the drive bays you just open the front panel.

You can then unlock and slide out a drive bay – in the case of this review unit, only one of the drive bays was occupied, and that was with a 2.5” SATA drive.

Viridian also sent over some images of the motherboard:


Using the VHS-3HC

Once the VHS-3HC has finished configuring, you see the usual WHS 2011 Dashboard. Viridian have included the AWIECO RemoteLauncher and DriveInfo add-ins pre-installed, both of which are really useful add-ins, so good move Viridian!

  1. I bought the server VHS-4HA in August 2011 for 622 GBP including VAT and flat shipping rate. Pre-sales communication was excellent, I learned everything I needed to. The server arrived and worked until January 2013. Since then, it has failed to start (stopped booting after a while). At first I tried to contact ViridianPC support, which took me 10 days. They had a “problem with DNS”. On the basis of discussion with the support I’ve sent the server to the UK (70 GBP). The server was delivered to repair on 14th February and since then (for more than 50 days) no one is communicating with me. I don’t have the server, I don’t have money. I take the entire investment as lost (692 GBP) and I have to buy another server because I can not wait anymore. I want to very strongly warn everyone who would like to purchase anything from ViridianPC. You can end up like me and lose a lot of time and money.
