SANS DIGITAL TowerSTOR TS2UT RAID 0, 1, JBOD, Spanning 2 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy to set up. Trayless. Quiet. Drives stay cool.

Cons: Doors feel a litttle flimsy but seem to be holding up just fine in daily use.

Other Thoughts: I've used several of the Sans Digital RAID1 models. This is the best of the lot. The cost of trays on the other units adds up quickly if you are using the unit for offsite backups.

Intel Xeon E5504 Nehalem 2.0 GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 4MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 80W BX80602E5504 Server Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great performance for the price.

No Hyperthreading is not necessarily a bad thing for ESXi 4. In many circumstances it can actually result in latency.

Uses little power and runs cool.

Cons: No heatsink or fan include in "Retail" box.

Other Thoughts: Load up on Memory. You'll max out that resource long before CPU.

Be sure to order a heatsink and fan. I used ther item below.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I now have over 50 of these drives operating in a variety of environments (workstations, servers and backup devices). The drives run quiet and cool with excellent performance. In the servers they are paired up with the 3ware 9650 SATAII controllers that are usually managing a RAID 5 array and the performance is terrific. Their NCQ capability is a big reason for this.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You can not go wrong with this drive.
