5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Server

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

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

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!!

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

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!!

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

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.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent home server no complaints here

Pros: Fantastic Black Friday price 30% off current price.

Fast processor, silent operation, All the cables are included and already installed in the drive bays. Nice BiOS though old style non-GUI. Completeness of the package, just add a hard drive, keyboard and mouse. Very fast boot even with traditional hard drive. Includes integrated sound card nice for a server.

Cons: Having trouble getting the DisplayPort output to play sound throw a HDMI monitor/speakers. Normal sound through back panel headphone jack works though. Trying to work out that glitch might need a different cable.

Other Thoughts: First of all the price: You could not touch this price in a used or refurbished machine, and this is brand new production that just came out of the Lenovo factory. Not sure how they can make any money at all on these at the Black Friday price I paid unless they count on the fact most people forget to do the rebate form on time.

If have installed Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter edition. This is an extremely fast machine. For the price paid I have no complaints at all. Includes removable card cages for 2 hard drives but has internal space for 4 drives. It is fair to call it a low end server or a workstation but is also fair to call it a high end workstation since it supports 32 GB of memory and has 4 DIMM slots.

It supports network boot as well as many other boot options you would expect from modern UEFI BIOS: Can boot from the network, and also from a USB thumb driver, USB hard drive or DVD as well as the internal DVD burner.

Only 280 watts but that seems to be plenty and the case is spacious almost empty, the power supply connector wires are slim and don't fill up the case. Very fast boot from this system and I do not have a SSD drive on this one, instead a Toshiba 2GB drive. It boots extremely fast. No SLEEP function but who cares? This is a server. Intel i3-4130 is a surprisingly robust CPU since it has 4 logical cores. No it is not an I5-3570 but really does not need to be. Build quality exceedingly code no sharp edges inside the case at all. No need for a box of bandaids. Everything installs by hand without tools. Recommend to anyone especially if they are on sale.

Running Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter it only had 1 file that needed to be installed, and Intel chipset driver .inf file. Actually worked fine even without that. The BIOS does support VM by the way people, the feature is just turned disabled by default: you have to go into BIOS settings and enable it.

Not a gaming machine but the Integrated HD4000 graphics is more than sufficient. The image quality is quite good it just lacks the oomph for gaming but like I said this is a server.

I am not sure what people were complaining about the PCIe being only 8X because mine is 16X

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Inexpensive cheap server solution or minimal desktop solution for most uses.

Cons: No enterprise server.

Other Thoughts: I bought 6 for desktop replacements with i3 processors. Built 4 with win 7, then started other configs, server 2012 r2. Put in some ssd drives and it really cooks ( not for games- video just ok). May buy some more. Hard to find a used machines for $230 with decent specs. No sleep mode, but not that useful for me.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent WHS

Pros: Inexpensive and well built

Cons: Only 2 of the 4 3.5" bays are easily accessible for hard drive installation.

Other Thoughts: This is really designed as an entry level server case, not an enterprise server. However the WHS software was not on the accepted software list, it loaded just fine and works wonderful!
