Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Xeon E3-1225 v3 3.2GHz 4GB 70A4001LUX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a great workstation @ 5 eggs, but since Lenovo calls it a server it only gets 4. It's a glorified workstation with a Xeon processor and can run power-user workloads with ease.

I have a dual-port NIC installed along with an LSI RAID adapter, SSD boot drive and 2 enterprise drives running as a server with Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V. Several VM's are running without a hitch. MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF POWER-SAVING FEATURES; otherwise you will be scratching your head for weeks!!!

Lenovo just made an awesome system here. And coupled with a $79 3-year on-site warranty my clients will enjoy the insurance and stability with this system.

Whisper-quiet is indeed true. Solid performer. I can push this server beyond it's limits but SOHO offices can be best served with one or two of these babies; and you are still saving $$$

Cons: Drive bays are somewhat limited but that only forces you to get the storage capacity right the first time.

Other Thoughts: I am preparing 2 more servers to replace my 12TB clustered NAS. Ubuntu 14.04 runs fine on this system.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E250B/AM 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: First-off, Samsung rocks plain and simple. This is a good drive but not worthy of the premium compared to the 840 EVO. The only thing you get right now is longevity compared to the EVO.

Cons: I didn't see much of a performance difference between my 840's and this 850. RAPID mode was actually SLOW on the 850 and my workstation runs a Xeon CPU with 20GB of RAM. Performance returned once I disabled it.

Other Thoughts: Go with the 840 Evo for now. I am sure Samsung will leverage 3D technology in the future and it will beat up the 840 series good enough. Until then.... disappoints.

ASUS RT-N53 Dual Band Wireless N600 SOHO Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, Fast Ethernet, 5 Guest SSID, Parental Access Time control to Each User
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Sleek design and stays cool. Love the Gbit ports and I use the stock firmware (not DD-WRT).

Cons: Just stops accepting traffic 2x per week. For what I use it for it's OK but man since this is a recurring pattern with this device the leadership and management in ASUS should be retrained on how to develop a product that should run 24x7 w/o a hiccup.
