SUPERMICRO SYS-5015A-EHF-D525 1U Intel Atom D525 Dual Gigabit LAN w/ IPMI Server Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great Server Awful Warranty 03/25/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5015A-EHF-D525 1U Intel Atom D525 Dual Gigabit LAN w/ IPMI Server Barebone

Pros: Low power 15 wat draw
Makes a great firewall

Cons: Supermicro warranty is awful, as in totally awful.
1. Will charge you for a cross ship.
2. Will send a refurb or repair for a new product.
3. Will take their sweet time doing it.
I love supermicro engineering and hate the supermicro warranty. For largish orders I usually look for a supermicro rebrander who will give a better warranty.

Other Thoughts: Supermicro has said they are fixing their warranty, by adding cross ship for the first year etc for server, my experience as of this week is that it hasn't changed at all.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRH-7TF-O Extended ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800

4 out of 5 eggs Good larger than it should be... not compatible with older chasis 03/25/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRH-7TF-O Extended ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800

Pros: 10gbe -- The nics will cost $500 if purchased seperately.
lots of ram.
Tons of storage options.
lsi 2208 is a nice controller. Makes sense if you want to do raid. For JBOD type configurations like ZFS it gets more complicated.
IPMI remote management is built in

Cons: LSI 2208 does not have IT firmware to my knowledge... Hard to figure out how to put it in jbod mode.
Not a standard form factor.
Works with but not directly compatible with older super micro chasis.

Other Thoughts: I like supermicro. Their warranty is absolutely the worst though... If you receive a bad product return it to the distributor. They are terribly bad. Will always charge for a repair, will take forever to repair the item.

XFX Radeon HD 5670 (Redwood) DirectX 11 HD-567X-YNFC 512MB 128-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity

Pros: None It's a paper weight on the 3 systems I've tried it on.

Cons: This is my second pass at this product. RMAd the first card after it was DOA with New Egg, new egg promptly gave me a replacement.

I've Tried it on a supermicro quad core xeon 700 watt power supply, a pentium core 2 intel motherboard 500 watt antec, and a new core i3 on an intel mb with a 430 watt antec power. Failed to work on any of them.

Tech support is non existent....
Seriously. I called them was told my wait time was 20 minutes. I waited twenty minutes, the phone range a couple of times I heard some talking in the background, then I heard a generic anouncement about registering my card (the one I heard when I first called), and was told to wait another 20 minutes.

I've invested way too much time trying to make

Other Thoughts: I bought this for hdmi audio for a home theather pc. It would be great if it worked. I wanted to be able to do bistreaming. I'm a network engineer, and will be sure to tell everyone who asks me for advise to steer clear of XFX. It's not like this is cheap either.

I must admit I'm totally amazed how many posts XFX makes trying to appear to be responsive to the many people having issues with their products. XFX If you want to contact me my ticket # is 279684 , but honestly should a costumer have to complain on newegg to get a response from your company.
