Thank you all for the suggested links and responses- it's really an eye 
My current server is average with no specific purpose other than 
website, mail and ftp service. In that respect I am in favor of 1TB 
minimum disk capacity. No USB required.

Indeed, I am running Dell for more than 15 years now and it never let me 
down, but I wondered if there are new possibilities with mini's (of 
other brands).
Ran into Brix and Intel NUC5i3RYK alikes but I am not familiar with 
these brands (the should be reliable and keep up for minimal three years 
without any hardware failures).

ZFS/SSD is not in the limelight currently - with 3,5" proven to be 
reliable and prices for WD Red 1TB+ being very acceptable, I think I 
stick to these for the moment.

Will let you know my final choice once being made.
