Hp Omni 10 399$ - 1920X1200 10" Bay Trail Z3770 Tablet

I purchased this yesterday at Office Depot. Its pretty awesome. I have used both the T100 and the Venue, this thing blows them away. First day after full charge lasted the 8 hours with 23 percent left. The screen is crystal clear full HD. The difference between the Z3770 and the Z3740D is night and day. Zero lags so far. Its exactly what I was looking for, add a keyboard and mouse this is easily a low to mid laptop. Its that good. Its solid, a bit weighty it feels solidly built. Just wonder why HP isn't pushing these. The video I saw had an optional stand/charger hope that is released soon.

UPDATE: Bummer report, had to return the Omni 10 due to a pretty good amount of screen flickering. It was only noticeable while watching Netflix and other videos which is one of my major uses. I did check if this might be due a sensor such as the ambient light sensor. After a lot of adjusting I could not get it to stop. After some research i found some postings on the HP forums of others also having this issue. Hopefully HP will fix this soon. I will buy another one of these when its back in stock.

Did you try turning off the automatic brightness control?

I noticed a little flicker, I turned off the auto and it looks fine so far.

I did turn off the auto brightness, no affect. The flickering was very strange, when it did it, the screen almost looked like it was being pressed on and it caused a swirl artifact. I am waiting for Office Depot to get another in stock to purchase, I am still convinced for the money this is the best of the new Baytrail tablets out there.

Best 10" for the price for sure. There isn't that much selection though for the 10" or 8" tablets, I think next time around it will be even worse trying to figure out what is top dog.

Thanks for the info Mezzum, I picked up one at OD this morning. $349 and a free copy of McAfee LiveSafe.

      Hi! I am planning to buy a Microserver Gen10 Plus E-2224 for a small business, and want to add as much disk space as possible. I already have the older Gen10 with 4x4TB HDDs in RAID10 (effective capacity 8TB) and a 2TB SSD in the 5th slot (which is missing on the new G10 plus). The max stated capacity on the HPE site seems to be limited with their own enterprise HDDs, so I'd like to see if I can go for bigger disks. The server would be running a sort of an application which collects lots of data from devices, and the data tends to grow over time (1-2TB per year), and I'd prefer not to worry about the capacity for the next several years.
       
      My primary concern is the max capacity (max single drive capacity + max total RAID capacity with the Smart Array S100i) I can reliably install. If possible, some actual setup which has been shown to work with 32GB RAM and its limited 180W power supply? I was also planning on upgrading it to 32GB. If I am buying a 16GB RAM server, does this means it has both slots occupied with 8GB modules and I need a 2x32GB kit? For the os SSD, I won't have the PCIe slot available because we need to insert a certain GPS PCIe card that the server uses for time synchronization. So, if I want an SSD, this means I should use something like 1xSSD + 3xHDD in RAID5, instead of RAID10?  
      I've been planning to install 16TB Seagate Exos X16 drives, with rated max operating power at 10W (6.3W for random reads/writes). Does this seam feasible?
       
      Thanks a lot for your tips!

      Does anyone know if it is possible to get Agentless Management Service (AMS) running on Debian/Ubuntu Linux? It is always showing as Not Available in the iLO page and I have only ever seen this active in Windows.

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys,
       
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
       
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
       
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.

      Hey guys, 
       
      Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?
