My server is set up to automatically download new episodes of whatever show through showrss.info and automatically downloads the films I want using couch potato then I can watch it at my leisure through plex. It's a fantastic system.
that's what I use it for as how it's set up it's basically a free Netflix personalised for me. .
Free - aren't you paying for a usenet feed then?
These are great as plex servers - enough CPU to transcode, as previous microservers struggled.
Yes, for sure it is capable, but I'm having slow network performance... any ideas why? I get ~40MB/s with NICs teamed or ~70MB/s using singular NIC. My old N54L would transfer @ > 100MB/s with mostly all the same equipment and same setup...
Which OS are you using?
The fact that it performs better with a single NIC would point to a configuration issue. Unless you have a managed switch, NIC bonding is largely pointless. It's OK if configured for redundancy, but you'll only ever get benefit from it if you concurrently need more than 1gbps (combined) in a single direction to multiple clients simultaneously, with less than 1gbps per client.
Are you using onboard NICs? If you're transcoding, and CPU usage is at 100%, this will affect the performance of the onboard NICs. Especially if there's bonding involved, as this is more computationally expensive (as it's all done in software). Did your 54L have a PCI NIC?
I'd try diagnosing in the following order:
1. Remove bonding - since a single NIC isn't performing as it should, this should be the main focus.
2. Storage - is your storage capable of providing data > 1gbps? The 70MB/s you're getting is awfully close to the transfer speed of some hard drives, so that could be the bottleneck.
3. CPU - try with a standard file copy (via samba, scp, etc...), and keep an eye on the CPU usage during the copy. If you can reach reasonable speeds, the transcoding software/cpu usage is to blame - if not, then it's possible a deeper config issue with the NIC, or a hardware issue.
4. Limit the CPU usage of the transcoder to around 80% - this should leave plenty of resources for everything that uses CPU (onboard NICs/SATA controllers, etc). Do another test to see what your throughput is like.
If that doesn't work, it's going to need much deeper diagnosis unfortunately.
Thank u for the deep explanation, I will be trying everything you said later.
Both N54L and Gen8 were using the onboard NICs and the same HDDs. N54L was running WHS2011 and Gen8 is running WS2012R2. I will be back after further testing ;)
​Try homeservershow forum as well they have a gen8 section and have covered pretty much everything with these servers now one of the firmwares needs downgrading for certain things like esxi file transfer speeds I believe which may affect other things can't quite remember but know people downgrade something for a reason.

bought one earlier, added 16 GB RAM for 66 pounds and i3 CPU from eBay for 45 pounds. Runs VSphere without any problems.
​I put an i3 3240 in mine last week. Night and day! Can I ask which ram you picked up? As I understand it it's a specific type that's needed so some advice from someone who's done it correctly would be appreciated.



Hi

I bought:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0064R7LH8/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

from Amazon warehouse. 20% off student discount came out as being around 66 pounds. Also added 2x2TB + 1TB WD Red. The microserver sits in the living room and my partner did not complain yet. So it is pretty quiet

Yeah my next post said to ignore this as I read afterwards and found the new cash deal. Buying from laptopsdirect as they offer same but with cheaper delivery. good find

You getting the ML10 or the microserver? Personally I'd get the ML10 as its much faster, additionally the extra PCI means it would make a much better whole house PVR TV server.

Doesn't have to be ECC does it? I know the dell server I bought recently you can use either and mix and match!

Doesn't have to be but it's highly recommended. For instance if you wanted to use this microserver as a NAS you'd want to maintain data integrity. There's no guarantee of that with non-ECC RAM. Heck even with ECC you're not immune, it just gives you a much higher chance of catching and correcting it.


​This server will not take Non ecc memory it must be ecc thats why you look for ram with the e on the end otherwise i would have used non ecc and so many others on homeservershow forum

Specs are good but just wish the build quality of these cheaper lenovos was better. I used to resell them but end up returning so many that I won't touch them now

Lenovo categorise B series as business laptop. It is the lowest range of business laptop.

Never used B series, do not know how do they compare to the lowest consumer range G50 and Z50 in terms of quality.

Not a listing error, item clearly shows that the proper price is £285 + VAT just they are a bit naughty and list the price after the cash back claim ;)
They also naughtily add a £75 + VAT support item to your basket by default. I was under the impression that this practice had been banned in the UK/EU within the last couple of years.
Yes, you are quite correct...the wording under the price read a little differently to me before 6.00am :)

No kidding!, hmmmmmmmmmmm.

Thanx guys for actually reclarifying that for me. :-)

Anyone used this as a VMware ESXi box yet?

Yes, 2 boxes, 1 ESXi 6.0 and 1 Hyper-v 2012 R2. ESXi 5.5 does not support the onboard NIC. I tried creating custom ISO with driver injected, which worked, but I kept getting core dump crashes, so might not b a good option.
Hi Welshman213, I take your memory still working fine. I'm after upgrading and don't care about whether its EEC. I'm not using it as a server so standard RAM would be fine. I'm assuming its this stuff.

Might sound like a weird question but how do people that have the 1520 find the GPS. My 920 never really worked all that well with endomondo, which is a bit of a reservation.


GPS works just fine
I love my 1520, you get used to the size very quickly and take the screen quality for granted. It's only when you pick up another phone that you appreciate how good it really is. It's integration with my work email and SharePoint is seem less.As others have said, excellent snapping ability.I personally don't miss anything from the Xperia I had before.

Cracking price, remember these CPUs are basically i5s but designed to be more reliable, so good powerful machines too

Can this be used as a desktop computer?

Yes, it would work just fine as a desktop PC, however, you'd need to install the OS of your choice first. You'd also need to have a monitor and keyboard/mouse.

I had an odd experience with this company.

I paid for fast shipping. On the day nothing arrived. When I contacted them they said they were out of stock. So I ordered from elsewhere (ebuyer) with 24 hr shipping.

20 minutes later I got contacted saying they do have stock. Do I still want it ? I said, no thanks, please cancel.

6 hours later I get a note saying it has been dispatched. Yesterday it arrived. It's now sitting in a corner while I wait to see if it's eligible for cashback.

To be honest, I would pay extra to order from a reliable supplier and save myself the confusion.

Yeah for some reason i thought they were reputable. Now I've looked at the reviews, it seems they mess up quite a bit.

Serversplus order went in yesterday afternoon, and is already out for delivery today. Brilliant service!

Please accept our sincere apologies. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are not able to get further stock of this product.
It is with regret that we have had to cancel and refund your order.
Again, we are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Kind regards
Servers Direct
OK, Servers Direct reckon they have no idea when they will know about stock, which I find hard to believe from a company that sells HP stuff all day long.

Their responses to my queries are very blunt and I find them pretty unhelpful and feel they couldnt give a stuff about the customer.

I asked them to cancel my order only to receive an email saying they are so sorry I have cancelled, and what can they do to entice me back. Oh how I laaaarfed! :)

I now have to wait upto 5 days to get my money back ... Woohoo!

One to avoid in the future me thinks. :)
Yeah if only it was just as easy as that :) I now hove to wait for them to refund my money :(

Hopefully the deal will still be there by the time I get my money back in my account.

Hopefully it'll drop in price as well by then ;)

I have just ordered this, but from what I can determine (after £75 cashback), the support package (UR482E) is not only free, but actually brings down the overall cost. Here is my order confirmation:

http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii91/james_jvj1/ServDirect1_zps7050f84c.jpg

So assuming the HP cashback clears ok, the total cost will be (£241.51 - £126) = £115.51
Also my 2% Quidco has already tracked on the (ex VAT, ex Delivery) order value of £192.97 (£3.86), so that takes the final cost down to £111.65 delivered... the best price I have seen recently for this item.

Heat added!

How has this worked out for you? Have they accepted your cashback on the server and support package? Thanks

I was away with work so only posted my cashback form on Sunday, I expect HP received it this morning so am waiting for an e-mail confirming the cashback. I'm not sure how long HP take to process the claims -will update here once I hear anything. Cheers.

I know this offer has now been expired -but thought I would post to let you know that my full £126 claim was approved and the cheque is on its way :)
Glad I got this one when it was £170!!
going to expire this offer from this site as the price has shot up to £245 for the unit.

how much storage can you put in these things?

Question for you, how much do you need? There are various options but in standard form they come with a 250Gb drive typically used for OS and that leaves 3 bays spare for whatever 3.5" drives you wish to use. You can however free up the OS drive bay by moving that up top in place of a 5.25" drive of some description. There is an eSata port at the rear, 4 USB 2 ports and you could install an additional Sata controller if needed. Power supply may become an issue..... you see why I asked the question.
I am looking for 12tb's+
sounds great, do you know where I can find a tutorial on how to set this up please?
4x3TB in the main bays or now you can get 4TB drives so 16GB in the main bays is feasible with the OS drive up top (modded BIOS required for full SATA speeds).
Hi, anyone wants to sell the 2gig RAM that came with this server, could you please let know. Cheers

Good to hear, have had mine confirmed too.

Has anyone who ordered from Servers Direct received confirmation from Out-bound that it was eligible?
I was quoted up to a week's processing time before I will find out, which would(?) affect my ability to return it under DSR if it proved to be ineligible European stock.

FWIW, my cashback was confirmed today.

Anybody who has ordered one of these or has a N40L I can recommend the following BIOS update which is a bit of a pain to download but worthwhile as it adds AHCI to SATA 5 port and also has SLIC 2.2

Hope those who managed to get one enjoy it, can't wait to start tinkering with this thing. Unfortunately the price has now increased:

£155 + VAT = £186 + Delivery = £196.

Cheers for the info guys! Expired.

This is actually cheaper for me than the ebuyer deal because for some reason ebuyer insist the Isle of Wight is in the Channel Islands. I wish it was (but it isn't).

If price is £150 this needs to expire again
It's £249 at minute lol
I am guessing that is an excluding VAT cashback.

Basically price is 208.31 + VAT= £250. Take off £100 cashback= £150. Take off VAT = £125 price displayed.
For me its coming up at £124.98 ex VAT (after £83 cashback), anyone know what this £83 cashback is?
Website is £177.60 EXCLUDING VAT and Delivery.

I have expired it but doesnt seem to have worked ??
Gone cold now.
Hmm when you add it to cart its costs £348!!
Njay
Hmm, price on OP link says £98* but underneath it says £348 with a rather spurious £250 cashback?

That's been changed probably expire this now as seems a little bizzare.

merchant_ac
You mean to say you hadn't already bought one? I didn't think there was anyone left who didn't have at least one.

I kept meaning to buy one then missed it and kept blooming going on till finally found one now sounds like i'm going to have to send it back or jump through hoops to get the cashback.

Yeh thanks, that's what they've offered me. I went for £50 cashback, the cashback offer ended so I won't be able to get it for less than £140 (that's what it cost me in the end) any time soon.
mazaky: just call them, they are aware of the problem. they will offer a 50 Pounds "sorry" cash back, directly fro them or free collection of the server. decision is yours.
Has anyone got any more updates on the issue? I received an email from HP declining my cashback claim and I'm just thinking now how I should approach SD.

I just went to put the New Servers+ Micro server in the loft where I am going to build it and found a Disc caddy on my desk...Oops! I must have forgotten to send it back with the server to SD. Not sure if I feel guilty or one up oO

Finally stock is coming. These things should have been out in October. The OEMs really missed the Windows 8 launch.
