    How bad can your SMART numbers be on a used HD before you refuse it?

    So from my perspective I'm really aware from the "Elements in grown defect list" A no-zero value is a no go for me. In your case it's OK. For the high corrected ECC read values, i would perform such things like badblocks (write+read) and rerun a long smartctl to see how theses values...

    EU deprecated - [FS] 100G Networking stuff

    nice stuffs. My home lab is too small for having any benefit (regarding the cost) to jump on the 100Gb. I already had difficulties to saturate 40Gb links But for real networks theses switches are awesomes.

    EU SuperMicro 2U 24x SFF NVMe X11

    So, all feedbacks are good ? This box is very attractive (except costly scalable cpus) ! @Iaroslav, switching with the X10DRU-i+ was a pain or it was quite simple ?
