Zotac Mini PC ZBOX ZBox-PI320-W2B Intel Atom Z3735F (1.33GHz) 2GB DDR3 32GB eMMC Windows 10 Home
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Tiny. Fast enough for most normal end-user stuff. Nice mounting bracket. Plenty of USB ports. Built-in wireless adaptor and LAN port. 2 year warranty.

Cons: LAN port is only 100Mb. A bit light on memory. 32 bit operating system (even though the processor is 64-bit). Slow storage, which can make big updates painful.

Other Thoughts: I'm a jaded IT pro, so I wasn't expecting to be wowed, but I think this little booger is pretty neat. It's a perfect little media PC that doesn't give me any guff and is easy to hide to avoid clutter. Fanless and runs very warm, so we'll see how long it lasts, but the 2 year warranty is encouraging. Blingy-blue LED ring and lighted logo are juvenile and distracting, but fortunately can be turned off in BIOS.

Be prepared for a very long setup process, especially if you don't have high speed internet. Out of the box, the OS on mine had been last updated in July when Windows 10 was newly released. Gigabytes of updates required downloading, and write speed is not one of the Zbox's strengths.

Overall, pretty impressive little package. If it lasts a few years, it'll definitely be a winner.

ASUS P9D-E/4L ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333

3 out of 5 eggs decent performer 10/10/2015

This review is from: ASUS P9D-E/4L ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333

Pros: I own two of these boards. They've been in 24/7 service for a couple of years. They're ok for the price, well documented, easy to work on. Plays well with LSI 9721 controller. The ASMB7-iKVM remote console is much more reliable on the latest firmware than it was originally. XenServer runs well on them.

Cons: IPMI has been unreliable. Occasionally, ipmitool will simply hang forever, making monitoring impossible until the server is cold-booted. I keep hoping a BMC firmware or BIOS update will resolve that, but it hasn't yet. Additionally, one board failed to POST at roughly the 2 year mark. it was repaired by Asus without any hassle, but was out of service about 3 weeks total.

Other Thoughts: Read the hardware compatibility guides before you buy memory. Stick to what's on the list.

LSI LSI00297 CacheVault Accessory kit for 9271 and 9266 Series -  Avago Technologies

3 out of 5 eggs disappointing warranty 10/05/2015

This review is from: LSI LSI00297 CacheVault Accessory kit for 9271 and 9266 Series - Avago Technologies

Pros: It does its job.

Cons: The warranty on the CacheVault is only one year, not three years like the controller. I had this one in service for less than two years when it failed and had to be replaced at my expense. I hope that was a fluke, as it rather defeats the purpose of the CacheVault, which is to avoid the cost of maintaining batteries.
