Vantec EZ Swap Internal Cartridge for 3.5" Aluminum Removable SATA Hard Drive Mobile Rack With LCD and Fan - Model MRK-200ST-BK*C

Pros: Great hot swap cartridge for its price. semi-smooth in and out with a click in confirmation.

Cons: I had a latch break on me. Needs to be handled with out force.

Overall Review: company website advertizes in features as Transfer rate up to 3Gbps or 300MB/S but when I received the unit it stated as 150mb/S. Went back to their website and "Specifications" tab states Data Transfer Rate: 150MB/s. Oops!

Samsung CLP 300 Personal Up to 16 ppm in A4 (17 ppm in Letter) 2400 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality Color Laser Printer
Samsung CLP 300 Personal Up to 16 ppm in A4 (17 ppm in Letter) 2400 x 600 dpi Color Print Quality Color Laser Printer

Pros: Fast printouts for color printer with great small foot print. Quality printout is B- Good tech support from Samsung.

Cons: Toner waster! And I mean toner waster. Tried config in print setting for draft output to save tonner, but no difference. Our office has 4 of this printers and has its draw back when all the tonner is as expensive as the printer its self.

Overall Review: Samsung please dont waste our toner and release firmware update.

3 years and 2 months later FAILED!

SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5" 500GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD500BW
SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5" 500GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TD500BW

Pros: 2 month after warranty the drive (1 of 2) just failed. This technology is old and Samsung makes much better drives. Overall SSD performance will vanish if not adequately cooled. They rate will throttle to 1/5th of its potential once thermo governor kicks in.

Cons: Failed after 3 years

Overall Review: I would not recommend this particular technology.

RAM upgrade FAILED

Pros: good solid design

Cons: I HAVE ORDERED 4X 8gb (32GB)MEMORY UPGRADE however slot 2B is not registering and result is 24Gb ram. anyone has the same issue or do I need to request RMA?

Overall Review: No its not the RAM Channel 2B failed with different ram sticks Fujitsu please respond how I get 2x 2.5 upgrade for this server.

Great all the way

Update

Intel RAID SAS/SATA 4 internal port w/ 512MB cache memory PCI-E 2.0 x8 Controller Card (RS2BL040)
Intel RAID SAS/SATA 4 internal port w/ 512MB cache memory PCI-E 2.0 x8 Controller Card (RS2BL040)

Pros: Update; got it working and must say it is good speed.

Cons: Who ever posted below that it supports raid 50 and 60 with 4 SATA channels is beyond me. raid 50 = 6 drives raid 60 = 8 drives.

Overall Review: How can intel put RAID 10, 50, 60 on their setup sheet where it clearly does not support even raid 10 from control panel? Intel please explain.
