Hmmm...I need something like this for a little workshop I'm setting up. Would anyone know if it comes with a parallel port (I need this to connect the PC to a stepper motor driver board).

The main Fujitsu Siems website says 'opt' - how can you have an optional parallel port? Surely it's either part of the motherboard or not?!

The extended specifications on the Ebuyer website state that it's connectivity as follows:
1 x serial - RS-232C - 9 pin D-Sub (DB-9) ¦ 1 x keyboard - generic - 6 pin mini-DIN (PS/2 style) ¦ 1 x mouse - generic - 6 pin mini-DIN (PS/2 style) ¦ 10 x Hi-Speed USB - 4 PIN USB Type A ( 2 front, 6 rear, 2 internal ) ¦ 1 x network - Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX/1000Base-T - RJ-45 ¦ 1 x display / video - VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15)

From that, it would appear to be a no, but then again, the specs given there could be wrong! Hope that helps a bit anyway.

Seems reasonable. How much power does it use? I would consider something like this over a NAS drive if the power condumtion was near enough the same.

You youngsters, in the good old days you added centronics and serial rs232 ports using an add-in card, nothing to do with the motherboard (apart from the board socket) :roll:

Luckily you can still get them

How much power does it use?

I estimate around 50 – 55W minimum at idle with a single HDD. Fujitsu may well list the exact amount if you check their website. A NAS should consume considerably less than this. If you leave this on 24/7 it will cost roughly £1 per watt per year. i.e. 50W = £50 per year. This is using my current tariff but electricity prices are going up so it can only go higher.

you can get pci parallel cards for about £8, or you can get USB to parallel or serial etc cables like the above (which you can probably find a lot cheaper if you spend more than 2 seconds googling)

optional parallel might mean it's got the pins on the mobo and you attach the connection if you need it or not (like old mobos where you had the little ribbon cables to connect to the case

That makes sense and it’s a good idea as the parallel port isn’t used so much so it’s a waste having it take up so much space. I’ve had boards before that used the ribbon cable approach for various components. If only they’d agree a standard for the connectors it would help a lot.

In the end I went for this...

http://www.microwarehouse.co.uk/catalogue/item/A0432191

It comes with the CPU - it's got an integrated parallel port & a soundcard. Just need to drop a litle bit of RAM in there (512MB for about £8), add an old PSU, I already have a 30GB drive & DVD ROM lying around - voila, instant PC! It'll use a lot less power too.

OOOOH I like that board, and its cheap!!
#10
This is the same price as a NAS drive I was looking at! Though I am not sure that I am confident with full blown networking

Thats not a bad buy with the 1.6ghz Atom onboard.

Im actually considering building a NAS with that.

Pros - cheaper than the Fujitsu (even after adding extra bits needed), smaller, less power, standard RAM (servers normally use ECC memory) integrated Soundcard (& parallel port!), 6% quidco with microwarehouse. Possibly use flash memory in place of a hard drive therefore virtually silent. (northbridge fan makes a bit of a din apparently)

Cons - no stock anywhere (I bought from microwarehouse who say "bought to order"), cases are ludicrously expensive, need to add a PSU, Hard drive,RAM & DVD,

Is it just me, or does that look like a shuttle motherboard?
#14
If you intend to sit in the same room as your server, also look for specs on noise output. This will drive you nuts long before you get the electricity bill.

Awesome spec for the price but not in stock.

All the stock for the ML110 comes as a drop shipment from HP. Serversdirect.co.uk says that stocks will become available again within 2-7 days.

This is a [SIZE="4"]server[/SIZE] and should not be compared with NAS or gaming PC's.

I bought one of these from ebuyer (was on special and posted on HUKD) and am seriously impressed with its build quality.

The case is solid and designed for ease of access with no sharp edges - I have an Antec case and reckon this one is superior.

The cooling is rather unique but it is not extremely noisy and I do work with it next to me.

A server is designed to run 24/7 and this is designed for that purpose.

It does have eec memory which may be a disadvantage (although handles errors better).
PSU is good quality and stable.

This does not have a fancy graphics card, but a server is not normally used as a terminal anyway.

Servers are designed mainly for business use so comparing to home PC's is not a good comparison.
#20
What about this one instead?

Would recommend this even if you need to wait a few days for stock.

I brought one as well with the intention of a desktop PC(£130 at time) . It works really well apart from being very big tower unit! Have not added memory as yet but have added PCI-E graphics card which I could play Stranglehold on. Superb price
