1 out of 5 eggs Yet ANOTHER NewEgg DOA! 08/10/2013

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Have no idea--both drives were DOA

Cons: Both drives arrived DOA. One would not spin up, the other had head damage and would not identify itself to the SATA controller.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg seems to be sending out other people's returned/DOA items to new customers (one drive even had dust on it from the previous owner). With the cost of these drives this just should not be happening!

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCL-O LGA 1155 Intel C202 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: When it works, excellent stable board that supports the latest Xeon Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Cons: Needed Sandy Bridge CPU to flash new BIOS onto boards before they would recognise an Ivy Bridge CPU.

No IPMI support (no BMC).

No fan speed control unless 4 pin fans are in use.

Out of the three boards I have ordered, so far one has a bad DIMM slot from the manufacturer. This is completely unacceptable; to top off the bad experience NewEgg wants me to pay $13 in return shipping to get it replaced! At that price I'll probably just eat the bad slot; buyer beware!

Other Thoughts: If you get one with a bad DIMM slot (apparently not all that uncommon), this is really a $173+ board, not $160 as advertised. At this new price point I would recommend going with a board that supports IPMI.

On its own this board would have gotten 4 eggs, but instead gets 1 egg because of the bad DIMM slot.
