It's a 4 pin "snap and lock" connector.
Pinout unknown but not too hard to figure out.
The OEM power supply is one of these Inventus units:
but with that 4-pin connector.
Any old 120W or higher 12V brick will...
Tempting but at least for me having to buy PCIe u.2 adapters really cuts into the value of drives like these. Especially since a crappy PCB shipped from China with zero components except for a u.2 connector is around $35 still, because of Chia maybe. Anyone got a source for lower-priced adapter...
I bought one of these from the same seller last week-ish when they were still $150.

So I recently bought a pile of SAS HE10s (HUH721010AL4200) to go with some I already had. I had had some performance issues with these drives in the past, where delayed reads would cause them to fall off the expander with a power-on reset error. I thought I'd look around to see if I could find...
I just powered mine down for the first time since I moved it to my desk a year ago, and what do you know, it didn't power back on. No voltage out of the PSU. Nothing visible is smoked on the supply and the switch powers up on a bench supply; I'll have to tear into it further when I get time.
The A2000 has an issue with PCIe power saving.
Not sure if it's the issue you're seeing or not. If you're on Linux, try the kernel parameter nvme_core.default_ps_max_latency_us=0
Yeah, I took the drive out for some additional bench testing and noticed the ominous clicking once it wasn't drowned out by all the server noise. I tried a full-disk read and it started fast and eventually dropped to a 10MB/s crawl.
So, I bought a "used" HE10 from eBay to replace it, which I...
I've been chasing some performance issues with my NAS (Supermicro X9DRD-7LN4F-JBOD, BPN-SAS2-836EL1, 8 10TB HUH721010AL4204, 8 3TB mixed SAS and SATA drives arranged into two md RAID6 arrays, one for the 3TB and one for 10TB drives) lately and could use some additional eyes on this. After poking...
I picked up four Transcend SSD370S 128GB SSDs to use as boot drives. At $15/ea they were cheaper than SATADOMs and I had the space in the chassis.
Installed Proxmox on each drive using a spare laptop, corrected /etc/network/interfaces, and added the console lines to /etc/default/grub. Worked...
They were this price back in July as well. According to a post in r/datahoarder, Amazon is limiting these to three per account.
