    [eBay] - Supermicro A2SDi-4C-HLN4F - $100 (offer accepted)

    Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen :) DHL and UPS do the clearance paperwork and send you an invoice around time of delivery for the value you self-declare before shipment on the Shipito website. If something looks weird they may ask for a proof of purchase for the offending item before...

    [eBay] - Supermicro A2SDi-4C-HLN4F - $100 (offer accepted)

    Indeed! I had to exercise some self restraint in only grabbing 3 and not clearing them out. I didn’t notice the RAM! Score! I use shipito.com and import stuff in bulk, ordering odds and ends over 1-2 months then using Shipito’s package consolidation to make the shipment as small as possible -...

    supermicro cse-847 with superQuiet power supplies 36bay 4u chassis $399

    Yep, that's what I thought - I don't know how the backplanes are architected with lanes/links/ports and how oversubscribed they are with respect to drive count

    supermicro cse-847 with superQuiet power supplies 36bay 4u chassis $399

    Please forgive my noobishness with my knowledge of Supermicro servers... Is the desire for the SAS backplane for this box around available bandwidth? I know SAS3 is 12Gbit vs SATA3 6Gbit, but is there some architectural difference in these backplanes outside of the per drive link speeds? eg...

    Micron 5200 Eco 3.84TB drives, $310 or less!

    I have ~40 of the 3.84TB variant spread across multiple boxes in either RAID6 or RAID1 configurations. Don't expect thrilling performance - but they're cheap, low-ish power, and for the intended use case of a HDD replacement (5200) they're fantastic.

    Project TinyMiniMicro: Reviving Small Corporate Desktops

    I have an Optiplex 7050 Micro from which I'm typing this message :) So I know the form factor, but what isn't documented from anything from most of the manufactuers is the HDD height compatibility. It doesn't appear to be possible with my unit, or the 9020M, documented in this blog post My...

    Project TinyMiniMicro: Reviving Small Corporate Desktops

    Has anyone found if any TMM style box is able to support a 15mm HDD? They'd be great for a low power small Plex server, but the lack of (cheap-ish) internal storage options is a downer.

    WTB: >1TB SATA SSD for under $100

    Here's two Intel S3510, each for $20 + $80 shipping - I know, that's a lame move by the seller, but still around your target price.

    EU Switzerland - 2TB SATA SSD 72 € (ADATA SU800)

    Finally, a 'deal' in Switzerland! May I ask how you found this? I haven't yet worked out a local deal alert method. Indeed. I placed an order as I live nearby, but I do not anticipate them honouring this price.
