Lenovo ThinkServer TS140 Tower Server System Intel Xeon E3-1225 v3 3.2GHz 4GB DDR3 1600 1 x 500GB 7200RPM 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price: Good deal for a case, PS, Xeon CPU and mobo plus the 4GB of ECC ram.
Quiet: Although it comes with multiple fans, they are very quiet during normal operation. HDs also have screwless soft plastic sleds that keep noise down and install easily.
RAID: Supports Intel RST. I was able to migrate an existing RAID 1 array (mirror) to this server by just setting the BIOS SATA to RAID and plugging them in.
Current I/O: USB 3.0 and SATA 3 (6 Gbps)
Compatible: Runs Windows 8.1 just fine, expanded RAM to 16GB (4 slots of 4GB) at auction prices, ready for VM work.
Support: BIOS update available at Lenovo worked flawlessly

Cons: BIOS is not setup for gamers (no OC...), onboard video shares RAM, need to add RAM.
Limited Expansion: Only 3 HD slots (I set mine up with 120GB boot SSD, pair of WD Black drives for RAID 1), 4 SATA (1 used by CD/DVD ROM which is a laptop style drive).
To upgrade PSU, requires 20/24 pin to 14 pin adapter (available elsewhere)

Other Thoughts: I do not play video games on this machine, and it is not intended for that purpose. I hate the 1U servers because the tiny high speed fans sound like squirrels fighting.

SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good, and good support 01/22/2015

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46

Pros: Small, convenient for Android devices, large capacity

Cons: Make sure to test it

Other Thoughts: Bought 2, one worked, one didn't. Setup RMA, replacement arrived promptly and worked fine. The OTG worked fine with my Sony Xperia (KitKat), Toshiba Thrive (Jellybean), and an Acer Iconia (Jellybean). Not USB 3.0, but that would cost more.

Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2 CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Nice for smaller room 05/29/2014

This review is from: Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2 CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair

Pros: Clear mids and surprising bass, seem to be well made, easy to listen to (not fatiguing). Good bookshelves for smaller room, may not need sub if you can place them optimally. Very nice speakers for the price.

Cons: Highs (bells, cymbals) are clear, but don't 'shine'. Placement may be an issue for best bass response (see owners manual). Owners manual has conflicting info on impedance (says 8 ohms one place and 6 ohms another). Also, can't set on their side unless you use foam pads (mopads).

Other Thoughts: I am used to 90's JBLs with titanium tweeters. Yes JBLs can be fatiguing after a while because the highs are so shrill, and sibilance (S's sounding scratchy) can be an issue. Played through Marantz CD 5004 player and Yamaha RX-V867 (95 WPC) in a 16 x 30' room with a Polk PSW505 sub taking everything below 100Hz.. These Pioneers take quite a bit more power (85dB versus 91 dB sensitivity), and don't fill the room like 3-way floor standers. I set the Yamaha to 6 ohm minimum just in case. I wasn't expecting to replace my JBLs but I wanted to see what the little Pioneers would do!
