Overall Good value

 

PC is a good value for the amount. I an issue with the performance. Sometimes when I have more than one window open, the windows freeze, therefore I have to do a alt, control, delete to shut down.

Great Replacement Laptop

 

This was a good deal, I love the wireless connect button on top, and everything has worked great out of the box. It is light and fast. I wasn't used to the glossy, wide-aspect screen at first, but like how I can work on two documments side by side.

Decent value

 

Performs well for a fair price. But discovered later could have had stereo sound and better memory card options for the same price in another brand. Oops.

Why won't the WiFi stay connected?

 

Goes from excellent to poor and back constantly. As it is a business computer I can't get any online support. Like the machine but this is very frustrating.

Great Business and Home Computer

 

Overall this is a great machine. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that it does not appear to support the new wireless n standard, only b and g. That said, the computer is fast,light and has a very good battery life. I travel a lot and this...

Inconsistent Audio

 

The audio for this laptop is very inconsistent. It will be working fine and then not work at all. It sounds like I might have a bad sound card that may have been damaged in shipping. I was told I have 30 days to exchange it. Who do I contact for this?

Product Specifications

The Sun StorageTek 2510 array affordably and simply meets the ever-increasing storage demands of a wide range of organizations. With iSCSI host interface connectivity and SAS back-end technology, the Sun StorageTek 2510 array will specifically benefit environments where flexibility, price/performance, and availability of administrative staff are critical IT decision factors. For SMBs and workgroups, the Sun StorageTek 2510 array is easy-to-use affordable primary storage to consolidate data and take overburdened Direct Attach Storage (DAS) to the next level. For the enterprise and larger organizations, the Sun StorageTek 2510 array is a reliable and robust system for their remote sites as well as a cost-effective Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) solution. The proliferation of servers and influx of data growth in today's IT environments is not limited to just the enterprise, but is a common challenge across most organizations today. To leverage data to its fullest extent, it must be manageable as well as accessible when needed. The connecting of storage devices via a storage area network, or SAN, is generally recognized to provide substantially higher scalability, flexibility, availability and manageability than is possible than with DAS environments. Storage consolidation using iSCSI host connectivity allows simple, rapid set-up of a SAN without the cost and complexity of Fibre Channel switches. By leveraging iSCSI technology, the Sun StorageTek 2510 array supports a simple and commonplace technology. This ensures low costs through commodity economics as well as leverages an enormous knowledge and experience base - as some level of network expertise is typically present in all sizes of organizations.
