Fujitsu Primergy MX130 S1

 

HP got the microserver ball rolling, now Fujitsu tries its hand. We put it to the test

A compact and very quiet microserver: it's well built but found wanting for remote management

Good Little Server

 

Works great on WHS after finding drivers. I updated CPU to AMD Athlon II X4 610e 2.4GHz Socket AM3 Quad-Core Desktop Processor. Still only uses 45W but 3x as fast. Updated Memory to 8gb and have 1TB + 2TB +2TB Harddisks. Running WHS 2011 and Plex Media...

Very Quiet, runs cool. Has room for 4 3.5" max and 4 memory slots for up to 16GB. Will accept other AM3 based chips, be careful with cooling though. Cheap

Included 250GB hd is so small not useful for most uses. Drivers and instructions for using WHS 2011 requires some web searching to figure it out. No Raid Drivers Except for Server 2008 and Linux/Redhad

It is a desktop

 

The server is actually a small profile desktop without sound card. Power consumption is at lower 40s watts for the stock configuration without heavy CPU usage. Newegg's exchange policy sucks.

Quiet and low cost. Enough slots on the motherboard to add cards of low profile form factor. Two extra SATA cables are included with the server

HD LED on the front panel does not work on mine; Newegg will charge over $30 shipping fee if I want to do exchange ; Only two HD drive bays with good air ventilation

it's ok, but there are better deals

 

Fujitsu makes big iron so I was surprised to find this server. I put an upgraded the CPU in it, added more ECC memory, an optical drive, and larger drives in a RAID config. It's still not all that fast, but it is good enough. Energy efficiency is cut...

It has a solid, attractive case design, it is energy efficient, it holds 2 hard drives, RAID, ECC, and has a nice layout of the motherboard ; The memory slots are aligned properly with the airflow, as one would expect in any real server ; It is quiet...

It did not come with the stabilizers (feet) which it is supposed to have according to the instructions ; The Sempron CPU is slow and a single core is no longer sufficient for a modern server ; The drive access requires opening the case and there is no...

Great server for WHS 2011

 

Wish more people knew about this microserver.

Small footprint, low noise. Fast enough to handle WHS 2011 after adding a external graphics card to free up all 2048 MB of RAM. Serves all my media files on my home network

Can't find out where to by the vertical mounting brackets from Fujitsu
