Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Server Memory SR x8 w/TS Hynix B Model KVR16LE11S8/4HB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Tested fine out of box and was exact match to Hynix part number used on the OEM 4GB module in new Lenovo TS140 70A4001MUX. Installed in slot 4 to pair with OEM module in slot 2.

Cons: Only for use with server chipsets requiring unbuffered (UDIMM) ECC memory.

Other Thoughts: SR= Single-Rank, aka 1Rx8, means only one chip (not two) on each DDR3 Bus data line. This is unbuffered ECC DDR3L with low-voltage 1.35V (and 1.5V) support.

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: Server-class processor E3-1225v3 and mainboard server-class chipset C226, with the full Intel AMT 9.0 (VPro) support, ECC memory, and built in TPM. Great price as I could not build a comparable E3-12xxV3 Haswell based system with a server mainboard for under $400, because this processor alone cost over $200. No extra mounting HW needed for up to four 3.5" HDD. Six USB 3.0.

Cons: Many roles will need slightly more memory and HDD, but that's not expensive if using third-party. I found NewEgg Item#: N82E16820242042 was an exact match for original OEM supplied 4GB ECC UDIMM module (identical Hynix part number, 1Rx8, ECC Unbuffered 1.35V, DDR3L-1600 CL11-11-11). Third and fourth HDDs are tougher to access/install, which is tradeoff for case being only 14.5" tall. Only one GigEth (Intel) port, so need to add Ethernet expansion card if using for router/firewall role. Couldn't find any BIOS support for SATA/HDD passwords, but not common to use with server role.

Other Thoughts: Best details on this server are found in the "TS140 Platform Specifications and Overview",
Very quiet in default BIOS thermal setting - includes front fan, rear fan, and two small HDD tray fans, plus CPU and PS fans.

Netgear GS105Ev2 ProSAFE Plus 5 Port Gigabit Switch (GS105E-200NAS)

5 out of 5 eggs Supports Web GUI for Management 07/13/2015

This review is from: Netgear GS105Ev2 ProSAFE Plus 5 Port Gigabit Switch (GS105E-200NAS)

Pros: new Web GUI and great features for the price. This is a sturdy Gbit Ethernet switch that includes basic managed switch features such as VLAN tagging, rate limiting, and port mirroring. Netgear has not update their datasheet for GS105Ev2, but the recent Firmware (1.3.x) now includes a web GUI and thus no longer requires using a Windows program (ProSafe Plus Utility) to setup and manage, see release notes for confirmation. Unit shipped with this latest firmware, DHCP client mode on, and with the Web GUI feature enabled. You can use a LAN scanner or your router's DHCP client list to find the assigned IP address and manage instantly from any browser without installing any software. Great little switch to add to your home/office LAN toolkit.

Cons: The ProSafe Plus Utility is the legacy method to find this device on your network and setup, but is only for Windows and is only available as unsigned .exe requiring admin rights to install (Windows will report publisher "Unknown"). By now, any software requiring admin rights should always be signed. This is actually a third-party utility from Flexera Software, which is reputable company and supplies such ID and Config utilities for several vendors.

Other Thoughts: This unit has amazing feature set for the price. I successfully used the port mirroring feature to monitor traffic between a device/computer and the rest of the network by mirroring the traffic from ports 1-4 to port 5 and attaching a Linux box running WireShark to port 5. Mirroring with a 1 Gigabit switch doesn't slow down network performance like my now ancient 10Mbit Ethernet hub (was not a switch, so always sends traffic to all ports).
