    Cheap 32in 4K IPS Monitor with Displayport, HDMI, usb-c inputs $330 FS

    If the image quality is comparable to the Z32 I will be happy for getting something in the same league for a third of the price.

    Just like a HP Z32? Ok, I’m sold. That’s the monitor I have. So I just ordered one of these for the girlfriend. I wish I could justify a second 32” for myself.

    Eaton EMA111-10 $77+shipping

    If you’re interested in selling them, I’m still interested in buying them Monitoring power use over time. Yes, the native interface isn’t great. But forever ago I had Uniquiti’s mFi line of outlets that supported monitoring and switching. And it had the single pane of glass overview Ubiquiti...

    U.2 / U.3 to USB 3.2 for Ext. U.2 access (not cheap, but may be useful)

    Thanks for all this info! One minor nitpick: at the end you have the Samsung 983 screenshots and then you say P5800x below, but your screenshot is a repeat of a Samsung one above.

    YMMV: Supermicro 2u-3u rails rev b - $40 shipped

    The more expensive rails have ball bearing slides so once mounted, you can slide the server out, do some work, slide it back in. No need to re-rack. Static rails don’t move. You either put the server in or you take the server out.

    Needing pointers on current decent enterprise SATA/SAS SSDs

    I have 8 of those from that seller running as four mirrors in my proxmox host. Very happy with them and in my very limited knowledge, they do seem to be one of the few SAS enterprise SSDs at decent prices.

    5019D-FN8TP-X11SDV-4C-TP8F New in Box $500

    Same. I’ve only looked at this thread a dozen times and thought about the switches I could get to let me use those 10g SFP ports since my current switch only has 4 and they’re all used.

    School me on OnStream ADR tapes and drives

    In short, yes. IIRC, they both launched around the same time — the late 90s — and ADR didn’t make it very far.
