Reading on STH and searching on eBay I keep coming across deals for Dell (and to a lesser extent HP) branded Intel DC S3500 SSDs. I understand the special firmware on these disks don't present all the SMART attributes the stock Intel disks do, but what do they present?
I'm interested in...
Hi, I have a few questions regarding getting an ups.
I'm looking to get my first "proper" homelab, and was looking for a smallish server rack. And I think I found one – the only thing is that the seller is also selling a 4 year old Dell J727N 2700 W UPS.
I have no experience with a...

Had the weirdest phone call with Dell.
I've been a Dell customer a long time and love the bang for your buck their lower end PowerConnect switches give. I was looking to upgrade our 28XX switches to the new PowerConnect X10XX range and thought I'd give them a call to see if I could get a...
Not sure if this is the correct forum, but I am considering getting a used Dell Precision T5600.
It has 2x E5-2670 and 32GB ram.
It has no hdd or ssd, as I want to get that myself anyway.
I have been quoted $565 as the best they can do.
Does that sound like a decent price?
I love C6100 but it was configured for two nodes only, which I knew before buying it. What I didn't know is how eager I will be to add two more nodes. I looked at list of parts that will be needed for two more nodes and it wasn't pretty. Then today it kinda hit me, can't I just buy another...
I have 3 Dell R715s and have been going through hell getting them updated the last couple days. Turns out the Lifecycle Controller was too old to go through auto updates, so I had to find an old CentOS OM disk to get them updated to the point it will work through Lifecycle Controller. Everything...

I have an odd problem that neither Microsoft nor Dell have been able to resolve yet. I know many of you have lots of experience and knowledge on both the hardware and the software side of the equation. This is more of a post of desperation / check to see if anyone has experienced...
