Lenovo ThinkServer TS100


Dave sets up Lenovo's ThinkServer TS100 and gives us his opinion.

Redundancy also extends to power as the server came with both hot-plug 435W supplies included. For cooling you have an active processor heatsink, a fan for the hard disk bay plus a larger one at the rear, but noise levels are low enough to be perfectly...

Awesome sandy bridge server with quick sync


You need to do 'trick install' to get HD graphics p3000 hw acceleration in server 08 r2. I am very happy with speed of this machine, i was originally concerned about power consumption, but then I noticed it was a very efficient power supply, 80 plus...

This machine makes an awesome DLNA server with realtime video transcoding through intel quicksync ; Fast quad core machine ; Cheap price if purchased from neweggbusiness site instead of newegg

Only 2 hard drive bays ; No hot plug hard drive option

Great Entry Level Server


Although I have more cons, they aren't anything that deter me from recommending this small business server. If you need something that needs 3+ hard drives, I'd find something else or get an external RAID array.

I was originally planning on buying a HP Proliant ML110 G7 server, but after reading reviews about the new Lenovo TS130, I decided to buy this for a client. The construction is top notch and is extremely quiet. All in all, Lenovo makes a great product

Seems like it is a bit of a struggle to put a device into the front USB slots ; No USB 3.0 ; ECC Memory only ; Only 2 3.5" bays
