Mediasonic HFR2-SU3S2 PRORAID Box 4 Bay Raid 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The device was purchased at a reasonable cost and the quality is good. The JMicron Hardware RAID Management software is working well also. Setup is easy.

Cons: An internal power supply would be nice but would most likely increase the size of the enclosure.

Other Thoughts: I have been running this enclosure for over a week now with absolutely no problems. I have four Seagate ST4000DM000 4TB drives configured as a RAID 10 array and used as the system backup drive for a Windows 2012R2 server. The ESATA port is being used.

The enclosure is paired with a PCI-E ESATA card, using the ASMEDIA 1061 chipset, in the server.

2 out of 5 eggs Console Redirection Does Not Work 07/23/2014

This review is from: ASRock E3C226D2I Mini ITX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C226 DDR3 1600 / 1333 ECC DIMM

Pros: Board runs Windows Server 2012 without a problem

Cons: Console redirection in remote management does not work.

Other Thoughts: Board is running Windows 2012 Server without any issues. The problem is with the BMC/IPMI system. Everything seems to be working in the IPMI system other than Console Redirection. I believe this is related to the Java Jviewer applet that is downloaded from the server BMC.

Java Version is 7, update 65. Java Runtime will not allow the Jviewer applet to be loaded and run. I have tried to use remote console in Windows Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. None of the browsers will load the Jviewer applet.

I have set the Java security level in the control panel to medium (as low as it will go). I have deleted temporary files in the Java control panel. I have added the IP address of the BMC to the Java exception list in the Java control panel. Nothing I have done has allowed Jviewer to load and run.

I get the following error messages when Jviewer trys to load:

Missing Application-Name manifest attribute
Missing Permissions manifest attribute in main jar

The Remote Control window on the Dashboard screen is all black with 0 x 0 displayed.

I have sent a support request to ASRock and hope to hear back from them soon.

If you are looking for a server motherboard with remote management I would say look for other options. This board is not ready for prime time.

4 out of 5 eggs Great Board, FireWire is disappointing 05/17/2013

This review is from: Intel BOXDH77DF LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This is a compact board with a lot of great features. It has been a solid performer. It fits well in my Silverstone SG06 case. I am running Windows 8.

Cons: I am using the VIA FireWire port on this board to communicate with a software defined radio with a 192KHz sampling rate. This does not work with the Windows 8 FireWire driver so I have to load the legacy FireWire driver from Windows 7, sign the driver, and use BCDEdit to put and keep the system in test mode.

Then everything works great except I get a test mode message on the bottom-right of my display that is difficult to remove without having negative effects with Windows 8.

For now I live with the test mode message.

Other Thoughts: I wish the board had a TI FireWire chipset.

I wish Microsoft would provide the legacy FireWire driver for Windows 8.
