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!READ FULL REVIEW
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.
