Seagate Desktop HDD ST8000DM002 8TB 256MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: High single drive capacty at a reasonable price
Not shingled, PMR all the way
7200 RPM
Surprisingly good performance

Cons: 6 platter design leaves no room on the bottom for airflow
Runs about 5C hotter than my 4TB seagates when under load
Only front and back screw holes, no middle holes due to spindle thickness

Other Thoughts: Read/Write speed tops out at 240MB/s, averages 180MB/s, and bottoms out at 105MB/s according to HD Tune.

Planet ENW-9801 10Gbps SFP+ PCI Express Server Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 10Gbe using Direct Attach or optical SFP+. Only needs a 4x slot.

Cons: This card does not support any IPv6 offloads. The linux driver is not in the mainline kernel and must be compiled and installed manually.

Other Thoughts: You are asking for trouble if you try to run a lot of IPv6 bandwidth through this card due to the lack of offloads. Stick with IPv4.

D-Link 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ PCI Express Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 10Gbe using copper Direct Attach SFP+ or optical. Only needs a 4x slot. Cheap.

Cons: Does not support any IPv6 offloads... at all. The linux driver is not in the mainline kernel and must be built and loaded manually. I wanted to ding the card more than 1 egg because of these deficiencies but if you hit the card's sweet spot it works like a champ.

Other Thoughts: You are asking for trouble if you try to run a lot of IPv6 bandwidth through this card due to the lack of offloads.
