x8 PCIe and AIC so watch out. I'd still say this is cheap for the drive
Looking at purchase history, there are many of them and they're taking best offers.
I was inspired by...
$125 per only in quantity but those are the slow A6's
I didn't see any good 5 lots on the A10's but there's the A10's in 10 lots same 8GB 256GB for $160ea Lot of 10 HP EliteDesk...
I'm sure they're not happy with you @Patrick but what you're pointing out is spot on. If they made a new line to denote SMR instead of using Red classic that would help in the future. Using the same is screwing over people who don't know better.
I didn't even know this was a thing. Apparently people have MacOSes installed on the M93p Tiny systems. $250 with a 256GB SSD, core i5, and 8GB
4GB ram but a 500GB hard drive...
I know these are going to be a bit pricey, but there are 8x 128GB 2400MHz LRDIMMs for $6K and 2666MHz for $8K on ebay. These are under $600 ea so under $4700 for 1TB of RAM and the seller has a bunch. That's not too much of a premium for big capacity dimms...
If you prefer the Supermicro version for EPYC 7001 Supermicro 2023US-TR4 2U Server AMD EPYC 7000 SoC 12×3.5SATA/SAS +NVMe Support | eBay
I don't think they support V2 but that's got dual PSUs and LSI 3108 built-in. Also has NVMe. Maybe if you want less hassle.
It's so much cheaper to buy...
I saw this one today
Sure the EPYC 7251 sucks, but you can probably buy that server, sell the CPUs, use new CPUs and get a server including some RAM for not a lot. 64GB is still a few hundred...
This isn't too bad at all really, HP / Samsung MZ-ILS15T0, 15.36TB SAS 12 Gbps 2.5" SSD Good Condition | eBay
$1.3K is a lot, but it's also under $0.085/GB or $84/TB
A 16TB IronWolf NAS drive is $500 so it's less than 3x the price of hard drive and you get SAS3 performance
