SAMSUNG SM843T Data Center Series MZ7WD120HAFV-00003 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's a SSD and works fast. No issues to report yet.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: It's a SSD and right now it's hosting the server OS for our small business. Works like a charm and so far we're having no issues.

Lenovo ThinkServer TS440 Tower Server System Intel Xeon E3-1245 v3 3.4GHz 4C/8T 4GB DDR3 1600 None 70AQ000CUX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This server definitely does the job for our small business! We were looking for something relatively inexpensive to host a few programs that required server control as well as our network storage. Bought 2-2TB hard drives and set up in RAID 1 as well as a 120GB SSD for the server OS and base programs. Works great!

Cons: One con for the server itself, one con for my own issues (did not take off an egg for my own issue).

1. This particular server (I'm guessing it's a Lenovo thing in general) makes it VERY annoying to get hot-swap hard drives. No ordinary 3.5" hot-swap drive will fit here. You need to get the one directly through Lenovo, which can add to cost later on. I didn't know this and bought my 2-2TB drives as internal drives, but then had to buy (from a third party) the hot-swap bracket for this Lenovo case. Not a huge deal, but come on Lenovo - make it easier. Loses an egg for that one.

2. I'm a newbie when it comes to RAID, and when I installed my Windows OS (Server 2012 Essentials) I didn't realize that I had to put ALL my hard drives in the RAID controller to get the computer to recognize all drives. I tried to just put the SSD just off the Motherboard and the 2-2TB on the RAID controller. Wound up putting all three in the RAID controller and configuring it. Again, not worth an egg since it wasn't a big deal and it was primarily my fault for not knowing, but still worth mentioning here.

Other Thoughts: All in all it's a great server and gets the job done. Definitely worth the price compared against what my company paid for our last server 7 years ago. I loaded this one with Windows Server 2012 Essentials and it was a HUGE upgrade over our Windows Small Business Server 2003 lol...

5 out of 5 eggs Windows 7 Is The Way To Go 05/07/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: Windows 7 is still definitely the OS to go with. I use Windows 8.1 at work and I must say Win 7 is still better. You have so much more flexibility with it. Don't even think about dropping Windows 7 until Microsoft unveils their new OS (hopefully next year).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Did you know Windows 8 actually doesn't turn off when you click shut down? It just goes into a weird hibernate mode. That's why it boots so fast. I mean at least Windows 7 will actually shut down completely when you click shut down...
