Dell U2413 Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The colors and contrast are exceptional. A solid upgrade over my old 19" Dell P series monitor. The huge screen resolution allows for lots of concurrently visible windows. Plug-n-play with my RHEL 7.2 workstation. Uses the Dell Ax510 sound bar, powered by the display, for less desk clutter. LED backlight and IPS display technology are excellent. Full Adobe RGB color is a major benefit.

Cons: No real problems or cons that I can think of. The optional Ax510 sound bar is a little weak sounding, I don't know of any other model sound bar made for this monitor.

Other Thoughts: Using this monitor on my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 Workstation, with an NVidia GTX Titan video card. Works great, highly recommended.

Intel DC S3510 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Solid and reliable SSD 02/25/2016

This review is from: Intel DC S3510 2.5" 80GB SATA III MLC Enterprise Solid State Drive

Pros: - Excellent management tools & firmware utility
- Works perfectly with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, plug-n-play
- Consistent performance
- Good price for an enterprise grade SSD

Cons: - Uses consumer grade NAND, not the 20 nm chips as used in higher end enterprise SSD's

Other Thoughts: - The S3510 series SSD's are not for write intensive applications, nor are they top-tier performers, but they're a great fit for an OS disk. I'm using a mirrored pair of these as my OS disk under RHEL Workstation 7.
- I've "short-stroked" these using the intel data center utility, resizing them to 40 GB. 40 GB is more than enough for the OS, and on this particular SSD, it results in >50% overprovisioning, so you can repurpose un-needed capacity to achieve better longevity.

5 out of 5 eggs Inexpensive, reasonable quality and performance, a great value SSD! 02/11/2016

This review is from: Intel DC S3510 2.5" 80GB SATA III MLC Enterprise Solid State Drive

Pros: Pros include 5 year warranty, enterprise firmware, metal casing construction, robust intel SSD "data center tool" software for performing firmware updates, LBA changes, etc. Plug-n-play with a SuperMIcro H8SCM board and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2.

Cons: Cons are that it uses cheesy 16 nm NAND like a consumer grade SSD, and has correspondingly low endurance. It's rated for just 0.3 DWPD, which is about on par with a "pro" level consumer SSD.

Other Thoughts: I'm using two of these in a mirrored pair for my OS disk. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 Workstation. Straight out of the box, they needed a firmware update. The intel SSD Data Center Tool for Linux reported that a newer version was available, so I went ahead and applied it. Easy, no drama. Also, I'm short-stroking these SSD's, to achieve greater endurance. The intel SSD Data Center Tool allows you to change the LBA, so I shrunk them from 80 GB down to 40 GB (more than enough for just the OS). So now they've got 50% over-provisioning instead of whatever the default is (7% maybe?).
