This review is from: EVGA 256-P1-N400-RX GeForce 6200 256MB 64-Bit DDR2 PCI Low Profile Ready Video Card
Pros: Low power draw, has drivers that work with Windows Server 2008 R2 (use NVIDIA revision 307.83).
Cons: This is *NOT* a low-profile ready card, it is standard height. It does not include a low-profile bracket.
Other Thoughts: If you have a custom-built server using a motherboard with no onboard graphics and a free PCI slot, this board will work perfect. I had a bunch of other older PCI interface graphics cards laying around, but none of them had drivers that worked with 2008 R2.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WorldCharge WCD0620 Li-ion Battery for Dell Latitude Laptops
Pros: Worked fine for 33 days.
Cons: Since the standard return period from Newegg is 30 days, I now have to deal with the manufacturer direct. We'll see how that goes for getting a replacement.
Other Thoughts: We were using this in a Dell Latitude D620, and it worked flawlessly for 33 days, then all of a sudden the laptop won't detect that the battery is there at all. With all the different available manufacturers of replacement batteries out there, I would recommend taking your chances with somebody else. I certainly won't be ordering anything from them again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1U, light weight, very quiet, IPMI, dual network ports, RAID support on the motherboard.
Cons: Only 2 USB ports. There are connectors for more on the motherboard, but even adding a PCI bracket with more ports is tricky due to space constraints. I would love to see Supermicro dump the two PS/2 keyboard/mouse ports and replace them with at least two more USB ports.
Out of the box, the system only supports 1 3.5" device internally. It does allow for two brackets that hold 2 2.5" devices each, allowing for up to 4 internal devices. But these brackets are not included (search for part number MCP-220-00044-0N if you need them). You'd think that for a server, even a small one, at least 2 drives would be used and Supermicro would include a bracket by default.
Other Thoughts: We are using two of these as redundant domain controllers in a small environment. We run with 8GB ECC RAM (Kingston KVR1333D3S8E9SK2/4G) and Core i3-2120T processors, plus two hard drives in RAID1. They have been flawless so far.READ FULL REVIEW
