Plextor M6S PX-512M6S 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs I thought they were white 04/02/2015

This review is from: Plextor M6S PX-512M6S 2.5" 512GB SATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Speed is OK. 2 x 512 in RAID 0 936MB/s read 790MB/s write in Crystal Diskmark on Sabertooth Z97.

Cons: Newegg's photos are inaccurate. I purchased these for an all white build. They're not white. I didn't remove an egg for this, but compared to an 850 pro or 850 evo, the performance is 15-20% less.

Other Thoughts: They're Silver.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X10DRI Extended ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 R3 Intel C612
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Don't be mislead by the first review, the BIOS is straightforward and simple. Many (like myself) use legacy mode with oboards like these because one or more component (like SAS/RAID controllers or Xeon Phi) don't properly support EFI in the first place.

Cons: The price seems a bit high for not integrating a SAS controller like they do on other models.

Other Thoughts: There is a 122 page manual located at:
I admit to being frustrated with Supermicro's lack of documentation when they stopped shipping boards with manuals about two years ago, but I am used to looking them up online now.
I used 16x Crucial CT8G4RFS4213 work fine. I have yet to encounter a memory compatibility issue on this platform, so I would venture to guess

areca ARC-1882ix-12-4G PCI-Express 3.0 x8 SATA / SAS 16-Port 6Gb/s RAID Adapter
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Impressive performance so far 03/06/2015

This review is from: areca ARC-1882ix-12-4G PCI-Express 3.0 x8 SATA / SAS 16-Port 6Gb/s RAID Adapter

Pros: 1802 MB/s read 562.4 MB/s Write on 12 4TB 5400RPM Drives in RAID 6.

Cons: None to mention at this point. I am concerned with premature failure, as other review authors mentioned, but folks who experience premature failure are also the same people who feel motivated to write newegg reviews.

Other Thoughts: Working great thus far. Controlling my PLEX Libraries. Upgraded from an areca 1223-8i card. I will likely buy another as the last two generations of areca cards have been good to me.
Newegg needs to implement a review system similar to a m a z o n so we can know whose reviews are real and who is having a hard time and ranting. Newegg reviews are often misleading because the people who post them are not experienced and/or qualified to use the hardware they are reviewing.
