I really think I want to get one this go round.  Last I had was the N54L. I need a Plex server and think ClearOS might do the trick.  HP should send me one to test! 

I've been thinking of streaming 4K ...

... but it took me  a lot of investigation to get bit-perfect audio playback on Windows with all the variants in media types and sources.

Anyone got a good handle on all the issues? Codecs VP9,H265; protection HDCP; signalling displayport whatever version; HDR; refresh rates; ...

 

Eventually got everything sorted with a LINX 1010E tablet @ £99 refurb from ebay.

Experimenting with a CHUWI Hi13 tablet (love the screen size and quality) @ £260 new for video.

Probably translate to £399....

 

The Gen8 is £120 after rebate in the UK. If the Gen10 is a 'cost cutting' model (many features taken out) do you think it will eventually reach £99 or lower in the UK?

No, the "after rebate" cost is in no way, IMHO, an indication of what cost the Gen10 will be.

 

The Gen8 is currently, as I can find it, around the £190 mark for the G1610T, 4Gb RAM, no optical and no HDD's.

 

 

I've asked my supplier what Gen10 stuff he has, if any..

They are not Zen technology. They are part of the Opteron APU line:

So basically it's a good idea to snap up the Gen8 at those prices while stocks last...?

You could do if you can find them at a decent price and then get the rebate put through before it ends as they tend to run for a certain amount of time...

 

Once they're all gone the second-hand market might improve a bit and I can sell mine lol

Bought mine from newegg for $381

 

Price is higher for the early adopters, I'm sure there will be better deals in a year or so but I needed a new server now.

Can you post a link to the model you bought?

      Hi all,
       
      I'm sure this question has been asked a hundred times before me. I've been searching and installing for days and days to no avail, and I think it's time to ask.
       
      I've got myself an HP G1610T which has all SATA bays populated - 4x 4TB drives.
      When the system was originally set up, I had FreeNAS installed to USB/SD card and the drives were configured with ZFS. Everything works (well, worked) a treat.
      My needs changed and so I set about changing to Ubuntu Server on the USB/SD card. Ubuntu has zfs support installed through apt which picked up my NAS drives and datasets no problem. This worked fine until the swap partition failed on the USB/SD for whatever reason, and all attempts to recover the SD Card have failed so far (I've given up hope and no longer care for it).
       
      Now I'm trying to boot Ubuntu Server from an SSD which is plugged in to the ODD SATA port. I've read conflicting statements - It can't be done/It can be done. I've read you need to chainload the operating system with grub on a USB to boot Ubuntu. The list goes on. I can successfully install Ubuntu Server to USB with no problem, boot up, and do what I want, but the install seems to do not set up the Logical Volume and Volume Groups properly when installing to the SSD, and Grub fails to boot when chainloaded.
       
      Does anyone have a relatively simple explanation of how I can go about booting my OS from the SSD? I'm preferring to keep all my data in tact where possible.
       
      Assistance would be greatly appreciated! 
       
      Cheers,
      /J

      I already had been running with a SDM-BETA in the G10 MS with a Samsung SSD mounted on it.  I switched out the Samsung and replaced it with a WL500GLSA8100 10K RPM 500GB 2.5" drive and it has been running well for some time now.  Works well IMO.

      I wanted to see how well the EZConvert (by Icy Dock) would work in the Gen10 so I removed two 3.5" drives from the main Cage and loaded to WD Red's 2.5" drives in EZConverts and loaded them into the Gen10 MicroServer.  Everything lined up and it was an easy changeout!
       
       
       
       
       


       

       

       




       
      Shortly after this I installed MS Office 365 onto the Gen10 and loaded some of my really big spreadsheets -- I thought the response was good and the graphics display of Excel generated graphs was great!  IMO.
