SUPERMICRO X9SRL-F ATX Server Motherboard LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent MB for ESXi 07/04/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO X9SRL-F ATX Server Motherboard LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: I purchased this MB to build a home ESXi VMware server. This MB is officially compatible with ESXi 5.1. However, I installed ESXi 5.5 (free edition) and it works perfectly. The BIOS version included out of the box was the latest version, so no need to flash the BIOS.

Beware that the MB footprint does not support the standard size CPU cooler. The mounting plate for the CPU must be of type narrow so I also had to purchase the SUPERMICRO SNK-P0050AP4 Heatsink.

Also note that my computer case had a MB mounting point that this MB did not support so I had to make an adjustment to the computer case to prevent the back of the MB from shorting against the mounting point on the case.

This is a great MB for a home ESXi VMware machine. I love it.

Cons: MB footprint does not support the standard size CPU cooler

Other Thoughts: Also Purchased:

HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401DNE 35PPM 1200dpi 256MB Duplex USB Ethernet Mono Laser Printer

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I replaced a very old printer with this one, and I can now finally print from my iPad to this printer, Yippee. This is a great printer for the home and small office. It literally was plug and play. I connect it to my LAN and the display on the printer displayed its IP address. That was cool. I have a home office many four PCs on the LAN that use this printer and the installation was easy and performance is excellent. I like the display on the printer because it makes it easy to obtain the IP address assigned to it. I no longer have to printout an information page to see the printer configuration. This printer is quiet and fast…compared to my 10 year old antique HP LaserJet 1300. This was an excellent upgrade.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I expected to pay more for a printer like this.

Synology DS213 Diskless System DiskStation - Simple Set-Up, Easy Efficiency
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Meets all my requirements. I use this product for backups and for media streaming. It includes a data replicator client app for scheduled backups. The fan is very quiet. I do not hear it.

The included streaminig media capabilities were more than I expected. I get more use from this product as a media host than expected.

Extremely stable.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Data transfer is over Ethernet so the throughput is not lightning fast. But, it is very good considering it is over the network. After all, this is a NAS device.
