1 out of 5 eggsZero support for Windows Server 2008

Pros: VERY fast system with 8GB RAM and SATA 6.0Gbps hard drive. Even with Windows Server 2008 32bit (non R2) it is quick. Simple OS install and VERY VERY quiet. I cannot hear it running at all.

Cons: I installed Windows Server 2008 32-bit (not R2). Our company's specialized industry software requires it. To my surprise there are absolutely ZERO drivers for this server with that OS.

Especially the Ethernet adapter which in mine was identified as a Intel I217-LM. Even Intel has no support for Windows Server 2008 32-bit and yet they have Windows 7, Windows 8, and even DOS 32-bit drivers!!! (none of which work with WIN2K8 of course).

Yes, I said freaking MS-DOS!!!! but no Windows Server 2008 32-bit.

It's like some kind of a conspiracy.

Other Thoughts: If you're installing one of the SUPPORTED operating systems I would say this is a great little server. I just wanted to warn you all in case there is someone out there like me who HAS to install Windows Server 2008 32-bit that you are completely on your own and will likely have to send this back.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive for a cheap box

Pros: - Cheap Entry Level Server/Workstation
- Very Quiet
- Small Footprint Mini-ATX
- Motherboard RAID 0/1/5/10
- USB 3.0

Cons: - Limited drive bay options without getting creative
- Placement of front panel USB connector limits video card length
- Limited power supply options w/o using aftermarket adapters

Other Thoughts: One of the cheapest entry server/workstation I have owned. Previous experience with many Dells, a few HPs, and one Fujitsu. Bought three TS140s so far. One i3-4130, one e3-1225v3, and one e3-1275v3. Two of three have standard 280W PS and one 450W. One has GT640, one GTX750Ti, and one GTX 650Ti video. Have SSD in each as OS drive and notebook HDDs in two of three for data. One machine configured with three SSDs (On-board RAID 5 Data). Two are Win 8.1 Workstations and one is Win 8.1 and Server 2012 R2. I can't stress enough this is a entry level box. It is really a workstation that can be used as a server in a pinch or as a training platform. Not quite as refined as the brands listed above, but also not as expensive.

4 out of 5 eggsI wish I had bought More

Pros: This is a nice server system and they were on sale at a great price.

Cons: Not a standard power supply. Replacement power supplies are expensive compared to standard equipment.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, great...

Pros: Got this from Newegg Marketplace. Results atypical, your experience may vary.

Dirt simple to set up. I'm not really a "server guy" and this wasn't any kind of a challenge.

* Grab a HDD (didn't setup RAID, this system is primarily for me to Train for MCSE 2012),
* Get a copy of Windows Server (Hint: College student? Check out Dreamspark.com. With proof of attendance to a college, you can get a 5-user copy of Windows Server 2012 R2 for free)
* Set up the BIOS (Press F1). No drivers needed (base install covers all the bases for one hard drive).
* I have the system set up for RDP, so there was no need for a KVM once it's configured and running. Use your Windows Vista/7/8 system, dial in with RDP, and have fun!


Points that other reviewers made: 1) (for me, anyway) all of the SATA Cables for each bay came preinstalled (enough for 2 drives, with the cables channeled down to the case so they're not all over the place.) If you get a marketplace system, understand it's not sold directly by Newegg, so there may be variances. 2) Having a PCI-E x16 slot running at x8 speed isn't a bad thing for a server. It's a bad thing for gamers. This isn't meant to be a Desktop computer. Please don't use it for one. 3) Memory is picky with servers, always has been. 4) Again, what use does a Server system have for Sleep, when it's supposed to be running for background services? If you're concerned about your monitor, set that to shut off in 10 minutes. 5) Windows Server 2003 is going to have architectural differences (especially if you're using 32-bit on this 64-bit system), so it may not run very well (also: Really? Why 2003?) Finally, 6) short of Newegg's policies, don't expect Lenovo to support you short of hardware failure. If you're having software problems, I feel bad for you son... (guess the rest of the delivery.)

Cons: So far none. Once I'm done with MCSE, I'm going to set this up to make a private web/email server for my family to make use of. If I can manage to find a cheap enough SAS Controller and exterior chassis, I might build a RAID on the system for more space, but it's not a pressing issue just yet.

I had to hit the front LED's with electrical tape, as this is running in my bedroom and the lights are bright. For a 24-hour system, the lights are bright enough to keep someone light sensitive awake (not the worse, but bright enough.) This is more of a style-points issue, and not worth dropping an egg over.

Finally: Windows Server 2012's color scheme sucks (cerulean blue/cyan hurts the eyes.) Fortunately this can be fixed: Server Manager > Manage > head to Services, choose Desktop Enhancements. Adds some stripped back Windows 8 components, allowing you to change colors for the windows as well as the Modern UI elements. Also, not a con, since for the same as above, this is a style-points issue, and second, WS2012 doesn't come with the server, so you are your own tech support. That's how it is.

1 out of 5 eggsunprofessional

Pros: Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz
Drivers for Windows 7, 8.1, (DESKTOP OS) and Server 2012r2 (SERVER OS).

Cons: Technical Support rep should look for another job - inherently dishonest - multiple times.

USB 3.0 drivers cause BSOD.

Primary GPU card slot advertised as 1 x PCIe GEN3: HH/FL x16 mechanical, x16 electrical but is both confirmed in windows and linux as 1 x PCIe GEN2: HH/FL x16 mechanical, x08 electrical.

Website states "ThinkServer TS140 – an enterprise-class tower server." This is false. As you may notice in the pictures provided by NewEgg the Blue Plastic Mounting Bracket for the HDD's is an indicator as stated by the Lenovo rep as a system unit that does NOT support Hot swapping and/or hot plugging. This is unacceptable.
Their ThinkServer-TS140-Datasheet.pdf states "A comprehensive options, services and NAS storage portfolio...". Network-attached storage (NAS) and RAID are synonymous. Wiki states "For example, computer RAID disk arrays allow a faulty disk to be hot-swapped for a new one...".

Their is an issue with the BIOS where the multiple monitor capability does not work properly in 'AUTO' mode.

Lenovo did not anticipate that even though they advertise the TS140 as a SERVER it is technically a WORKSTATION since drivers for both DESKTOP OS and SERVER OS are provided.

If you desire to use the SERVER as a WORKSTATION you will NOT be able to put the computer to sleep since Lenovo has disabled it.

Other Thoughts: i am so disgusted with the Technical Support Rep of Lenovo that i'll just keep my other thoughts to myself.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy little barebones system

Pros: Quiet, easy install of Win7 pro. Basic drivers on the included disc. Once you get the network up, rest can be loaded from Lenovo's site. High quality power cable (usually something I would never comment on but this is a nice beefy one). Flies with an SSD in there (Samsung EVO and Samsung 840 Pro tried).

Cons: DVD drive is a little loud. Power supply connector to motherboard is not standard 24pin. Its a proprietary 14pin. If you want to put (or need to) replace the power supply, you need an adapter. Look over at moddiy dot com and search Lenovo 14-pin and you'll find it.

Other Thoughts: Others have noted you need right angle SATA cables to hit the included cages. Not exactly. There are 2 right angle cables included so you can take the one in use for the DVD drive and use it for the 2nd HDD cage. Then run a standard cable to the DVD drive.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Amazing product for low power 24/7 use. Used one of these to build a mini-raid network server running Windows server.

Cons: No hard drive could be a con but also a plus, instead of getting the cheap 5400 RPM drive you can spend the saved $ on a NAS drive or more durable one and know that the product you placed into it worked.

Other Thoughts: For the other reviewers that rate this low due to no hard drive and inability to deploy simply.. This is NOT for novice users. YES it is cheap but not meant for those who do not know or are not experienced with barebone / server systems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Excellent price-performance tradeoffs all around, from the on-board video to the power supply to the optical drive. Every dollar in this thing's price tag is very well spent.

Superior mechanics, in every aspect:
1) Very refined construction, extremely easy to work on. I've built several other systems myself over the years and this one is, from the ground up, an absolute joy to tinker with.
2) Insanely quiet. It will blow your mind
3) Footprint fits nicely behind 48" TV

This runs CentOS 6.5 flawlessly (2 HDDs in RAID 1 + 1 SSD for OS).

Cons: I bought this to use as a home network RAID server, but I only started researching Linux RAID after the purchase. For this system, "Hardware RAID" is IRST, which apparently belongs to a class of RAID implementations known as "BIOS raid" or "fakeraid." Such RAIDs are seemingly universally frowned upon. So I'm running software RAID after all, but that's really OK.

No caddy for 3rd HDD (as mentioned)

A bit underpowered for watching 1080p video, but not too severely.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a very affordable machine to host a RAID array, run some basic home network services, and let me stream audio & video. I was not looking for a gaming system, some high-capacity server, or something that my aunt (bless her soul) could use. This machine is really the perfect solution.

4 out of 5 eggsLenova Thinkserver TS140

Pros: - Inexpensive (After Mail-In Rebate)
- 6X USB 3.0 Ports + 2X USB 2.0 ports
- 2X Display Ports
- 3X PCIe ports + 1X PCI port
- Takes Full Height Cards.
- DVD Reader/Writer OD Included.
- 4X DIMM Slots taking up to 32GB natively supported.
- 2X 5.25" external Drive Bays, 1X 3.5" external Drive Bay
- Socketed CPU to allow for Upgrading.
- Cooling fan on CPU.
- 3X Case Fans for excellent Cooling.
- Case is Very Sturdy. No rough edges.
- Intel 4400 series Video Card (upgrade from most that have 4000)
- Audio Card and Driver for Stereo and Surround Sound.
- 15 pin SATA power connections allow for up to 6 devices without a splitter.
- 285 watt Bronze power supply is bigger than a HP Proliant Microserver to allow for more PCIe cards (a GPU?).
- Upgrade path for multiple gigabit ethernet cards (Intel I350-T2 or I350-T4)
- All of the 5X SATA busses are SATA III. Unlike the Proliant G7 N54L which only has SATA I or SATA II busses.

I liked these as a Media Server/HTPC so I bought 2 to build for customers. I was used to the Proliant Microservers and knew their quirks. I have had to take the time to learn how to set them up. I will say that the Tech Support is still learning this machine. After I got to the correct group handling Server Support in Atlanta, GA, things went a lot smoother.

Cons: - Price is lower on other sites (named after a river in Brazil) and does not need MIR!
- Only one SATA III HDD cable comes with the server.
- Drive Bay Configuration Requires 90 degree angle SATA III cables to allow the Case Cover to Close. (If you only have straight SATA cables, you are out of luck).
- Drive Cages are flimsy Plastic. They look and feel cheap.
- Included Start-Up disc has no drivers for Windows 7 OS (or Windows 8). The machine was meant to be a server so they only included drivers for Server OS's. They have the majority of OS's covered.
- Limited Drivers for Windows 7.
- Some of the Drivers on the Lenovo.com website are Beta Drivers. The Intel Video and HD Audio Driver on the site has been supplanted by a newer driver. I found that out only after contacting Tech Support because I could not get Audio through the Display Port. Once I got the new driver, problem was fixed. It only took me 3 hours of troubleshooting to resolve that one.
- The TS140 Server will NOT accept KINGSTON RAM. This according to the Lenova Tech Support that I talked to. This includes Wintec Industries memory modules.
- The TS140 does NOT accept Buffered/Registered Memory Modules. ECC is fine. Buffered Memory is NOT.
- The TS140 does accept Hynix or Samsung Memory Modules. Those are the types that come with the Server. Tech Support is still working on a listing of acceptable aftermarket memory modules.
- The Lenova Technical Forum is POOR. The TS140 has not been out long enough for a lot of people to work with them. If you need support in-depth, stick with the HP Proliant Microservers. HomeServerShow.com will give you all the support you could ever need on those.
- The footprint of the TS140 is larger than a Proliant G7 or G8 Microserver. It isn't a huge box, just not as compact.
- Only room for 3X 3.5" Disc Drives. You can upgrade up to 5 drives (3X 3.5" + 2X 2.5") but you would have to share data ports or disconnect the OD unless you want to put in a PCIe SATA controller card.

Other Thoughts: This was intended to be a SOHO or even Mid-Size Data Server but the features on this box make it a pretty ideal choice as a Home Media Server/HTPC. The low cost and feature rich box with an excellent upgrade path will give severe competition to the HP Proliant Servers. HP Servers are more expensive on a feature comparision scale.

Technical Support from HP and aftermarket forum is where the Proliant Microservers beat out the Thinkservers. The Microservers also have the smallest footprint that I know of.

Because the TS140 has only been out for a few months, Lenova is still working on tech support and firmware. I expect that they will get this resolved within 6 months or so (I don't work for Lenova so that is just IMO).

In conclusion, I really like this Lenova TS140. I believe that it has more features out of the box, and a better upgrade path than the HP Proliant G7, G8, or even 300 series servers. It is a definite step up from the TS130 and has very current features. Once I get over the steep learning curve and work out the bugs I am pretty sure I will wonder why I even considered purchasing another HP Proliant Microserver.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldon't be more happier

Pros: 4gb ECC RAM with 3 slots to grow. Whisper quiet, seriously this thing is so quiet, I thought it was faulty and not booting. Very, very low energy, right on par with the N54L with much more power.

Cons: Not able to run ESXI 5.5 out of the box, you must add more ram. 5.1 can run with custom ESXI 5.1 built. DVD drive sounds like a jet engine. Maybe different verbage in bios, can see novices confused with it.

Other Thoughts: This is a great machine. Still can't believe how quiet the thing is. I can live with the DVD drive noise, how often will that be used? Not one regret overall. Will be used as a WHS and VOIP server when google voice changes (still researching this)
