5 out of 5 eggsGreat little server

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: Full system (add hdd and go).
Low power (my setup draws 50W).
Quiet (fans are silent, only noise is from hdd).
Inexpensive.
Seems decent quality. Nice case design.
Expandable.

Cons: Motherboard has proprietary power connector (easy to find an adapter at online merchants).
Case has spare 5.25" bay but lacks extra proprietary drive rails. Same for third 3.5" bay.
ECC unregistered RAM costs more.

Other Thoughts: Note: Review is for TS140 Core i3-4330 3.5GHz 4GB 70A4000FUX (same product slightly faster CPU)
After 3 months of running Linux and Windows, have no bad experiences.
It is now my regular desktop/gaming PC with an SSD and fanless graphics card and is steady as a rock.
Build quality seems at least as good as Dell PowerEdge and lower than HP Proliant. I now recommend TS140 to friends and clients.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Barebones on Special

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: I purchased this on sale with a rebate. I could not buy the parts for what I paid for it.

Cons: Proprietary power supply adapter. I only removed one star because of the power supply not being standard connector.

Other Thoughts: I install a hybrid drive and power color 7870 which it runs with stock settings and stock power supply, used burn in program to test to see if power supply would handle the load which it did with out any issues.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Workstation

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: Excellent and dependable workstation for the price :)
Fast - W7HP x64 starts in 7 seconds after post
Included 4GB RAM is fast, so I added identical card making it 8GB
Plenty of expandability for storage and other uses

Cons: I can't complain for the price

Other Thoughts: If you want to match the RAM, this one uses:
Samsung 4GB PC3L-12800E DDR3-1600 ECC Unbuffered SERVER MEMORY M391B5173QH0-YK0

My Configuration...
240GB Crucial SATA III SSD (CT240M5800SSD1)
8GB (2x4GB) RAM

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Server

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: Great little server. I added a second 4GB matching memory and the TS140 really purrs along (very quiet). Processer is able to handle Windows Server 2012 Standard without a hiccup! I recommend this lower end Server.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have not installed any high end applications or done any high end processing. Only running the operating system and using for File Storage in back office. Tom (computer tech 18+ years_

3 out of 5 eggsNetwork Interface Card has big problems with Linux

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: The system is inexpensive and runs well overall.

Cons: If you are running Linux, beware. There is an issue with the Network Interface Card randomly resetting. I system as a web server for a customer and it was a nightmare troubleshooting the issue. I finally disabled the internal NIC and replaced it with another manufacturer's. The issue with the network that was a regular daily event has not reappeared in at least 6 months, since I replaced the NIC.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: Clean design, very quiet, no frills, works like a charm, room for expansion

Cons: Limited Space for Hard Drives

Other Thoughts: Added another stick of ECC ram and a second NIC for teaming. No problems with either upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for a small home office!!

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: Small, low power consumption. The reason is that there is virtually no graphic processor on-board. Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS install flawlessly. I will purchase this platform again (more than one next time) when it is time to expand beyond my capacity. 32GB capacity for RAM is more than impressive with the expand-ability of the motherboard as well.

Cons: None so far..

Other Thoughts: Will never need the graphic processing that is available on this board. While you "could" expand and put an aftermarket card with this setup, you would have to change the power supply in order to do so. Not needing to do that sort of change, as the servers are only logged into via terminal, it works flawless in the current setup/platform.

4 out of 5 eggsA great choice for specialty needs

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: -35W @ idle
-65W @ 100% cpu (this i3 by itself is rated @ 65W, meaning the PSU and motherboard are incredibly efficient)
-Whisper quiet, even while running almost a dozen routers in GNS3
-Front fan duct designed well for keeping the internal drives cool
-Completely tool-less case design
-Best tool-less PCI slot system I've ever seen
-Nicely designed internal drive vibration mounts (not sure why people are complaining about this)
-More USB 3.0 ports than USB 2.0 ports
-Windows Server 2012 runs SMOOOOOOTH as butter with this hardware
-The lack of a hard drive reduces the price, and allows you to get ones you prefer instead of whatever brand they want you to have

Cons: -Tool-less external drive mounts are poorly engineered... just use the screw holes with some thumb screws instead
-COM 2 header does not take standard DB-9 harness connector (not a huge deal, but still)
-No RDIMM ECC memory support (but at this price point, you can't really expect that... at least it does UDIMM ECC)
-Single NIC
-Front USB 3.0 harness header is not a standard connector
-Non-standard power supply connector, but same voltages and pin sizes and typical PSUs. Easy to adapt to an aftermarket unit (and if you think otherwise, you have no business being inside of a computer chassis).

Other Thoughts: If you plan on a 10Gb NIC or running a 12Gb SAS setup, be sure to use the 1st X16 PCIe slot for the best bandwidth. That one is a Gen3 PCIe while the other slots are just Gen2.

Also, I'm really shocked at how many of the one-egg reviews are way out of line, especially the guys using Server 2003 and non-R2 2008. If you value the security of your servers, you'd get smart and upgrade already. Lenovo did you a favor by not supplying drivers for those operating systems. Additionally, if you think this is really an enterprise class server, you should seek another profession. This is designed for specialty tasks and small business needs, not a datacenter. The specs alone should be enough to tell you that.

In closing, this server is perfect for things you would typically see an appliance for, like an IP camera security DVR, a small business database server, or even a firewall/VPN system. This would also be a good light-duty NAS, and also does ok with GNS3 (though I have since changed over to one of the Xeon-E3 models for Cisco training).

Also, these servers are made in Mexico, not China despite what another reviewer said. I guess nobody reads anymore.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!!

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: I normally order on newegg daily and try to avoid the market place items because of there normal long waits. This item came quickly for a server i was very surprised to see it. The seller did a great job the item came fast and for the price to support raid 0, 1, and 10 i was really surprised. The quality is good and had no issues loading server 2012 r2.

Cons: None so far can't complain about a base i3 system for 200 bucks.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little server

This review is from: Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz 4GB 70A4000HUX

Pros: This is a nice inexpensive box for decent specifications depending on what you would like to use it for.

4th Gen Core i3 processor - goes for around $100 if you buy it alone.

Cons: I haven't had any yet. I have not owned it for long but it does exactly what I need it to do.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this box to replace an old FreeNAS box I had been running at home. The old FreeNAS box was a desktop I purchased back in 2005 and it's abilities with the Plex Media server plugin were pretty sad. I wanted to upgrade the machine since I utilize my FreeNAS machine a lot.

This box runs great with FreeNAS and I would recommend it to anyone thinking about using this box for the same reason.
