First impressions Received server today, so this is just quick feedback for all you thinking about it out there.I got it for use as home server, similar to what other people use HP mini server. Nicely built heavy metal case, sound dampening and quiet. No dust filters.Inside it has:280 W HE Bronze PSU.4 memory slots, One stick 4 Gb installed.5 SATA ports1 PCI slot, 2 PCI-E X16, 1 PCI-E X42 well ventilated HD inch bays with front fan blowing on them, 2 HDs more can be installed into slots that are not so well ventilated.2 display ports and 1 VGAThere are reports about these servers (this one and earlier version, TS130) not supporting certain OS (i.e. Ubuntu, Centos). I took 80 Gb Intel SSD with Lubuntu 13.4 from my Lenovo T420 laptop, plugged into SATA inside and booted Lubuntu in under 10 sec. Using it to write this review right now. I believe the problem is incorrect configuration of UEFI boot, suggest switching to legacy BIOS boot. You will loose space over 2 Tb on larger HD though.Lubuntu is lightweight Ubuntu mod and I believe boot is the same. Can not quite understand if audio works in Lubuntu. Dont need it anyways.Power usage by Lubuntu with one SSD installed is 19 W at idle and 45 W at max CPU according to my watt meter. Most of the time it will be idle so the annual 24/7 energy use expected at 166 KWh which translates into about $30 per year where I live. Every HDD will add about 10W but they can be configured to go to sleep when not in use.Windows 7 with drivers installed consumes 17.5 W when idle. Wundows experience index with single memory stick:CPU: 7.3Memory: 5.9Graphics: 5.0Gaming Graphics: 6.5I expect Memory and Graphics go up when second memory stick installed and dual channel mode kicks in.To enter BIOS press F1 the moment you see first text or logo after you turned it on.Did I mention it has remote management capability? Startup/shutdown only though?Update 12/16/2013:Added 4 GB memory for second channel: , installed into blue slots.Windows experience index for Win 7 64 bit with memory in dual channel mode:CPU: 7.3Memory: 7.6Graphics: 6.6Gaming Graphics: 6.6
awesome!! but a few notes First, let me say that this computer is rock solid, quiet and very well made. It really is a steal.Having said that:there is a few things that I would like to touch on.1. The UEFI “bios” on this computer is set up weird in my opinion. It has a compatibility mode, which is good so that you can boot an OS that requires old fashioned bios. the weird thing to me is that they set the option to “first try legacy (old style os), then try to boot UEFI”. this is a really weird choice in my book. If you boot a windows DVD, it has both on there. In this mode, it will see an old school os and boot that and install that, never looking to see that this DVD also has UEFI.the fix is easy though… just hit F1, and choose to look first for UEFI, then legacy… not such a big problem really just a gripe i guess.2. The power connector. Lenovo has chosen for the thinkserver and thinkcenter line to use a 14 pin connector to the motherboard. Yes you heard me correctly. not 20 pin, not 24 – 14. This is not a problem if you do not plan on upgrading the power supply. If you do, you will need to do a search on Lenovo 24 pin to 14 pin adapter. there is a company who makes these. They are $15 so not a deal breaker, but a weird choice in my opinion.3. ecc ram. It does come with ecc ram. let me just say that up front. what is strange to me is the fact that in “bios”, there is no option to see that the motherboard knows that ecc ram is installed, no option to turn ecc on or off… no mention of ecc in any way shape or form. I trust that the computer knows the ram is ecc i guess… just would be nice for it to be listed as such in computer information or somewhere…These are my few small gripes about this computer. Having said that, I would buy this computer again in a heart beat. I am really happy with it. It is a really solid computer at a super great price. I love my lenovo 🙂
