    Mini PC proxmox + pfsense

    It will work, but for what you're looking to do an even cheaper and older brand-name can do it. If you read the TMM threads on the forums and main page, you'll see ways to have your dollar go further

    Samsung SSD PM1643 3.8TB SAS 12Gb/s MZ-ILT3T8A 2.5" @ $289.98

    Are these (1633 and 1643) at risk for sudden death from hours on?

    Samsung SSD PM1643 3.8TB SAS 12Gb/s MZ-ILT3T8A 2.5" @ $289.98

    For my PM1633a's: smartctl lists them as NETAPP x357's with NA51. I have the NA54.lod (3.98MB) from the all.zip here. Also have the MZ7LM240HCGR-00003_3F3Q.bin (1MB) from the huge firmware list from this forum TFW.zip (MEGA). Any ideas which to use? Is flashing to NA54 the easiest fix...

    IBM U.2 flash core module 19.2tb $905

    So is it just sitting in your system showing 40TB and not being used beyond that?

    HGST 7200rpm 10TB SAS $84.55

    Bitdeals has been good but slow at times. Haven't had QA issues to the way that that one eBay vendor had

    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    That is interesting. I haven't scoured all 22 pages, but wondering if anyone has put 2.5gbe on the LAN side. My cable modem is gigabit, but if 2.5 or 10 could get adopted, that'd be intriguing. Someone was mentioning the Cromwell stuff earlier in the posts. As for 2.5...

    Topton Jasper Lake Quad i225V Mini PC Report

    That's rather... bonkers. 4 port Nic and 6 sata. I get that sinology's do the same thing for the most part, but that would be an interesting white box build

    Samsung SAS 3.84tb SSD pm1633 $240

    I have two of these, haven't checked the firmware yet. Does anyone have Samsung firmware for this? Should I flash to latest HP or Dell firmware and hope they work in white box?

    NetApp Flash Cache

    Really, the brilliant minds here can't figure it out?

    Samsung SSD PM1643 3.8TB SAS 12Gb/s MZ-ILT3T8A 2.5" @ $289.98

    Thank you! I have to use this on a pm1633a drive running NA51. Hopefully I don't screw it up, as those drives are in an Unraid setup

    Mellanox Innova2 CONNECT-X 5 25gbps SFP28 and XILINX Kintex ULTRASCALE+ DPU $250 + Bestoffer

    I'd like to know the use case also. Maybe to unpack and re-iso Linux distros at light speed? Play FLAC's across your network onto your Amazon Fire without buffering?

    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    Further update on the non-emmc one I bought: IoT LTSC lost its activation. I installed Windows 10 LTSC, but that license from the embedded code claims to be expired. Even with the Windows sticker and an embedded key in the bios, if you buy an eBay model you may not have a valid Windows key.

    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    As a Plex server, I'd understand. I tried this as a Plex client and it wasn't able to perform. That's not acceptable since many laptops with lower passmark scores can play network 1080p h264 without an issue. Point taken, that this level of "thin" can't keep up.

    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    It does have the sticker, and again, I was able to dig in and find a key. I've tried following Dell's recommendation with the USB tool, but the tool doesn't work (practically every option is grayed out, it sees any type of usb drive as not-usb. This has been tried on multiple WIndows pc's). I...

    (US) 90 dollar Wyse 5070 Thin client/mini-server?

    Weird question: I bought one from @Fritz 's most recent link (now sold out). These didn't come with emmc, and were locked with bios passwords not part of the default setup. I jumper'd and reset bios, and I'm good to go. I installed Win 10 Enterprise LTSC Eval, and used wmic path...
