Western Digital Green WD20NPVT 2TB IntelliPower 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Compact, good for servers with fault tolerance.

Cons: High failure rate. We have about two dozen of these and several failed within 1-2 years. Just had two fail within hours of each other causing data loss.

1 out of 5 eggs Bad Linux drivers, crashed our SAN 08/05/2015

This review is from: Mellanox 10Gigabit Ethernet Card

Pros: None.

Cons: Doesn't work reliably in Linux with 2.2 driver. Under small amount of load, throws CQE kernel errors and freezes the driver. Completely dropped our SAN connections twice in a cloud environment. We will never buy Mellanox again, ever. Back to Intel.

SUPERMICRO SYS-1027R-WC1R 1U Rackmount Server Barebone Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602J DDR3 1866/1600/1333/1066/800
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great system which we are using (a few) for a basic commercial virtualization (cloud IaaS). Added two 8-core Intel CPUs and SSDs and a couple hard drives for a great basis for expanding our platform. As with all SUPERMICRO systems this has a fast web-based and highly configurable IPMI. This server comes with a nice RAID controller.

Cons: Initialization is still a little slow but we are used to it. The RAID controller seemed to have problems setting up a RAID-1 with SSDs when in UEFI, but we could do it through normal BIOS and switch back.
