2 out of 5 eggsLenovo should not do servers.

Pros: I was curious about this server as Lenovo has a great reputation with the Thinkpad. So I decided to give this server a shot.

When the server finally arrived, my first impression out of the box was that it didn't seem to be much more than an inexpensive tower PC. Not something I would haven classified as a server in terms of build quality. None the less, it was cheap so what was I expecting?

Build Quality: 2.5 Eggs

Installation of Server 2008 R2 went pretty well. No hiccups. However, once I got around to installing my Adaptec RAID card, the issues begin. The server would not see the Adaptec from a cold boot. I did realize after some experimenting that the card was recognized consistently after a warm boot. My first call was to Adaptec. Unfortunately, they were not able to confirm any compatibility issues with their card and the Lenovo. Next stop, Lenovo tech support. This is where things get exciting.

I was able to get a level 1 tech on the phone pretty quickly. I explained the issue. First question from the tech was "what's the FRU number of the card?" FRU? what FRU? This isn't an IBM or Lenovo card. It's an Adaptec card I explained. The tech fed me the "well then, do not support it" line. Needless to say, I was pretty upset and let the tech have it. You mean to tell me unless it's an IBM card, Lenovo doesn't even want to speak to me about it? After 5min of arguing with the level 1 tech I asked for a manager. I was finally able have a civilized discussion with a Lenovo manager regarding my issue.

In the end, it was determined that the Adaptec will not work with this model system. I will say the manager I spoke with did all he could and worked with me through the issue. So from that perspective, I was satisfied with the level of support he provided.

Support from Lenovo: 1 Egg (support from Lenovo manager as a result from an escalation. 4 Eggs)

In the end, server was returned in exchange for an HP Proliant ML110 G7. Should have went with the Proliant from the beginning. This was my first experience with the ML150. All I can say is, that's what I call a server!

Bottom line, skip the Lenovo, get the HP. You will save yourself a lot of time and hassle.

Cons: Felt low end (yes I know it's cheap but compared to a similarly priced HP Proliant, Lenovo should be embarrassed.

Build quality below average for a server product. No comparison to the HP Proliant ML150

Level 1 support from Lenovo was useless. Unless you are using all Lenovo/IBM peripherals don't expect much help.

Useless remote management tools. Again, HP has it all over Lenovo.

Other Thoughts: When the server finally arrived, my first impression was that it didn't seem to be much more than an inexpensive tower PC. Not something I would haven classified as a server in terms of build quality. Non the less, it was cheap so what was I expecting?

4 out of 5 eggsGood small home server

Pros: Great, small server, runs quiet except for the hard drive, which is a Seagate Constellation - that's just the nature of those drives. Originally had Windows Home Server 2011 installed on bare metal, had some problems, not running the same but inside ESXi.

Cons: The case is small, not much room for expansion. If you want a lot of drives you need a bigger case or external. Also ESXi will not install because it does not recognize the onboard NIC, which is easily solved by adding in a good one. I used PWLA8391GT and ESXi 4.1 update 3 installed just fine.

Other Thoughts: eSATA would be nice, there is a header inside but no outside port.

4 out of 5 eggsSuper Quiet

Pros: Super quiet (I already submitted a review, hope this isn't a dupe).

Runs great as our office server (centOS host debian guest), no problems in operation at all. What I really like is that the thing is so quiet, you have to lean in close to even hear it running.

Cons: Non

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, barely audible

Pros: Extremely quiet -- I have sensitive hearing and I need to bend close to hear this thing run. And its been running for almost a year now without a hiccup as my office server (centOS as host OS and Debian as guest). So what more can I say -- runs great, but it's so quiet you forget you have it.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Virtually silent -- love that.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome sandy bridge server with quick sync

Pros: This machine makes an awesome DLNA server with realtime video transcoding through intel quicksync.

Fast quad core machine

Cheap price if purchased from neweggbusiness site instead of newegg

Cons: Only 2 hard drive bays
No hot plug hard drive option

Other Thoughts: You need to do 'trick install' to get HD graphics p3000 hw acceleration in server 08 r2.

I am very happy with speed of this machine, i was originally concerned about power consumption, but then I noticed it was a very efficient power supply, 80 plus bronze certified. I will check the actual power usage during idle, and gpu load, since thats all I care about.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Entry-Level Server

Pros: Great price for a server that includes 4GB and a Xeon CPU. Solid build construction and sleek looking.

Includes nice features such as onboard RAID and Intel AMT technology.

Cons: - Little expansion for internal hard drives
- No USB 3.0 (should include for portable externals)
- Not compatible with Non-ECC memory

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Entry Level Server

Pros: I was originally planning on buying a HP Proliant ML110 G7 server, but after reading reviews about the new Lenovo TS130, I decided to buy this for a client. The construction is top notch and is extremely quiet. All in all, Lenovo makes a great product.

Cons: - Seems like it is a bit of a struggle to put a device into the front USB slots.
- No USB 3.0
- ECC Memory only
- Only 2 3.5" bays

Other Thoughts: Although I have more cons, they aren't anything that deter me from recommending this small business server. If you need something that needs 3+ hard drives, I'd find something else or get an external RAID array.
