Amazing SSD

Intel X25-E SSDSA2SH032G1 2.5" 32GB SATA II SLC Enterprise Solid State Disk
Intel X25-E SSDSA2SH032G1 2.5" 32GB SATA II SLC Enterprise Solid State Disk

Pros: The performance of this drive is amazing. It certainly lives up to is specifications which I cannot say about any other drive I've purchased. I purchased 3 of these for 3 gentoo servers. I setup one system and then cloned the drives with dd, here are the dd results: dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb (block size=1024k) 30517+1 records in 30517+1 records out 32000000000 bytes (32 GB) copied, 187.553 s, 171 MB/s The sequential write speed spec'd was 170 MB/s and dd reported 171 MB/s so this drive is the real deal.

Cons: None so far and don't expect to find any. Ideally, price should be lower, but this is one of a few out there with this type of performance.

Overall Review: If you are looking for a solid drive and price isn't a major factor, this is a good drive.

Awesome Barebones Kit

TYAN B2933G14S2M Transport GT14 1U Barebone Server NVIDIA nForce Professional 3600 Dual 1207(F) Dual  AMD Opteron 1.0GHz Hyper Transport FSB
TYAN B2933G14S2M Transport GT14 1U Barebone Server NVIDIA nForce Professional 3600 Dual 1207(F) Dual AMD Opteron 1.0GHz Hyper Transport FSB

Pros: Great kit, all necessary items (cables/HD brakes, etc) included. If running lcdproc for linux, it will work with the LCD display, although, I've yet to figured out how to control the backlight, if possible.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Other tyan products usually ship with a rackmount kit, but this item did not include it. Not newegg's fault I'm sure, just something to note.

Quality Product

TYAN B2912G24V4H 1U Rackmount Barebone Server Dual 1207(F) NVIDIA nForce Professional 3600 DDRII 667/533
TYAN B2912G24V4H 1U Rackmount Barebone Server Dual 1207(F) NVIDIA nForce Professional 3600 DDRII 667/533

Pros: Very easy to put together. Up and running in a very short period of time. Server response very quickly. Running Gentoo Linux with a soft RAID 1+0. Some might say the fans are loud, but once the fan controller kicks in, the noise isn't much of a factor, especially if you have this in a server closet.

Cons: None to date
