ASUS MB169B+ Silver/Black 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Light
Works with USB2 as well
Nice case
It is very thin so you can easily have it in your laptop bag.
I would like to have the stand somehow built it to the monitor but that would just increase the overall weight. The stand is acceptable for the monitor.
Lower brightness means you last longer on battery and you can adjust it with buttons on the side.

Cons: Needed driver even with windows 10. For some reason I can't get the auto turn to work. Not a big deal for me.

Adaptec RAID 6405E 2271700-R 6 Gb/s SATA / SAS 4 internal ports w/ 128MB cache memory Controller Card, Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a great card for the price; just make sure that you disable the write cache so you don't lose data with power failure.
This worked great with supermicro board but If you are building this for ESXi be aware that this Adaptec card needs the drivers so you either have to build a custom install media which I didn't like or install it on another media a flash and then install the vib driver by SCPing the vib to ESXi and install it in command line. after that ESXi will recognize the blank storage and will create your datastore on RAID drive. This way only VMs are secured from HDD failure and not ESXi itself but rebuilding and adding the VMs to another new flash takes only 10-20 mins which is shorter than looking for your custom made image of ESXi :)
Here is the working link for the working driver:

Here is the guide for installing VIB file in ESXi shell which is the same as ESXi 5.5 (Worked for me):

Cons: non maybe PCI-e X1?

Other Thoughts: Your system defiantly needs a UPS with this card as card has no battery. So if write cache is enabled without a UPS power failure can make you lose data.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Paired with:
E3-1241v3
Adaptec RAID 6405E
Kingstone KVR16LE11/8I X 2
