TRIPP LITE SRCASTER Heavy-Duty Rolling Caster Kit for SR4POST
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Small wheels 09/11/2014

This review is from: TRIPP LITE SRCASTER Heavy-Duty Rolling Caster Kit for SR4POST

Pros: Small and strong.

Cons: In the end I purchased a set of larger wheels at the hardware store. It seems that the Tripplite rack has a pretty standard interface to to the wheels. The larger wheels work better on carpet.

TRIPP LITE RS-0615-R 6 Outlets Power Strip 120V Input Voltage 15 Feet Cord Length
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No configuration or drivers, no surge protection, completely passive except for a circuit breaker.

Cons: No configuration or drivers, no surge protection, completely passive except for a circuit breaker.

Other Thoughts: It is what it is. An unexpected but very welcome detail is the cover over the on/off switch that will prevent accidental shutoffs. The lack of surge protection is either a pro or a con, depending on which side of the UPS it is on. You aren't supposed to put a surge protector between the UPS and the computer. I got some 3 ft power cables and was able to improve the look of the rack quite a bit.

Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540-T1
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs No PXE 06/05/2014

This review is from: Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X540-T1

Pros: Uses inexpensive Cat 7 cables, connects to inexpensive Netgear switch, may work with no configuration, can be used with slower switches if necessary unlike traditional 10GBE equipment.

Cons: PXE boot requires reflashing the NIC

Other Thoughts: I sure like the idea of CX4 because of the terrific cost saving - the cables cost $20 rather than $1,000 (FO) or $200 (DAC) and the Netgear switch is $100 per port rather than $1000. But try as I might I can't get PXE booting turned on.

Intel supplies a program "bootutil" on their website to reflash the NIC to support PXE booting, however it would not install on a windows 7 machine. If I could PXE boot with the card I would give it 4 stars, but I need PXE and can't use the card in production as is. Should be an easy fix for Intel if they care but I think maybe they don't..

The card has some options available on a setup screen in the ROM BIOS of the NIC, however the card I received apparently had display of that screen turned off. Docs say it should be on.
