HP TouchPad FireSale Deal Thread

Recommended Posts

Dave

I wanted to start a thread for all of us to monitor the HP Touchpad sales in the coming days. If the prices that have been leaked are real I'll be picking one up. $99 for 16Gig, $149 for 32Gig. This is a good price for a nice mobile movie screen.

 

I'll be following this thread through the weekend so if you guys hear or find anything let us all know!

I realize HP is no longer making the Touchpad, but for 100.00 dollars it's a great couch toy. I picked up 2 for 183.88 with tax & shipping. If you use the coupon save30hp they will take 30 off of 150.00 or more. Gonna give 1 to my parents to play with.http://www.fatwallet...-deals/1119462/

 

I'm guessing in a few months someone over at XDAdevelopers.com will find a way to port android over to it. If not for 99.00 dollars it will make a great internet device.

They are for sale right not for 99.00 on HPs website. Picked up 2 a few hours ago for 183.88 total shipped.

I see only Out of Stock. I tried my commission site as well and the products are not there.

Yah, looks like they sold out already, that was quick. I'm sure more will come in stock as retailers return their excess inventory. Guess I got lucky ordering when I did.

 

I feel pretty bad for all the folks on ebay who have an active bid out there on a Touchpad. Seems like there are a lot of Touchpads with 1 or 2 bids in the 250+ range. Hopefully then don't realize it's now on sale for 99.00

Well they have disappeared from the BestBuy site. Either they returned them all, or readying the price drop?

Saw this tip on usingwindowshomerver.com and just scored one. Go to microcenter and when

you put it in your cart, the firesale price will show up.

      Hi there,
      I hope this topic fits here just right.
      So a few days ago, I moved my Microserver Gen8 to a friend's place and resetted it.
      When we set it up with new disks, the raid-creation in OpenMediaVault (Debian 9.6) failed.
      `smartctl` tests passed just fine though and vendor-tools also didn't report any drive errors.
      What happened?
      - I start the Raid creation via `mdadm` and after a while (random blocks and times), it fails and the second disk seems to fail (e.g. sda and sdb are creating a raid, then sdb gets "kicked out" and reread as e.g. sdd, sometimes even with only a few GB of space instead of 3TB).
      I tried attaching the second disk on ata2 and ata3, but it keeps failing. The one on ata1 works just fine though.
      I tried different disks and vendors, but get the same results.
      There are some errors in `dmesg`, but I don't know what they mean. I pasted them here: https://pastebin.com/raw/XASQJ6cy
      What I did here: I stopped the raid to re-create it, but then didn't do anything for a while and the error still came up.

      Can someone help me with this? (As a wild guess, I'd say that somethings wrong with the SATA connections at least on ata2 and ata3).

      Thanks in advance

      Wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction here. Have just replaced the CPU on my gen 8 microserver. Went according to the video above. Upon booting the server up, there is a clicking sound coming from the main board. Regular as clockwork, and the server isn't posting. Any ideas? I've swapped back to the G1610T CPU, but still the same issue. And just make it interesting, I don't have access to a monitor or keyboard.

      Hello! Recently I've been thinking to upgrade the CPU in my HP ProLiant ML10 v2. It currently has a Intel® Pentium® G3240 (I got the model of this server that comes with the Intel® Pentium® G3240) and according to the manual I should be able to upgrade the CPU to a Intel® Xeon® E3-1220v3. Is this true? Do I need to change / get anything else? Thanks.

      Hi all, Thought I would make a post about a recent project I started as it may be of some use as it's a fairly good base for a home server.
       
      I recently bought a HP Proliant ML350p G8 on eBay for around $350, It had no drives, a very low spec E5-2609 4-core and 8GB of ram.
       
      My first problem with this server was that it was loud, not really rack mount loud but too loud for me in a quiet room. So I thought hey! why not watercool it, so I set out doing research. I removed all three 92mm delta fans and spent an evening working out how to fool the system into thinking it still had them so it would let me boot it and see that all the fans were working, this was done using jumper cables in the hot plug slots; connecting the two black grounds and the single yellow signal pins together in each 5-pin header, there was no documentation on this anywhere that I could find so it was all trial and error, I hope this helps if you are considering watercooling any G8/G9 Proliant server as I imagine its fairly similar.
       
      I also wanted a bit more punch so I had a look around and settled for a E5-2630v2 6-core from eBay for $70
       
      Next was sourcing watercooling for it, I have gone for a single closed loop Corsair H90 $65 and a Asetek 2011 Narrow ILM ring adaptor $8 found HERE to fit the 2011 sockets found on the ML350, these bits are being delivered in the next few days so I will update with photos and results when the H90 is fitted! I might get another 2630v2 if all goes well as it has two 2011 sockets available.
       
      This box will be used as a development environment eventually, probably running Hyper-V but I may throw a graphics card in it before and see how it does in some games just for the fun of it   
       
      Hope this is of interest.
       
      Ryan,

      After reading a lot of stuff here and there I am planning some sort of investigation... I'd like to make a board adapter to make Microserver work with any 120mm fan (PWM or DC regulated) without problems and failures. I know some members got problems when installed a new fan and tried different connection schematics.
       
      Here's what I'd like to do:
       
      6pin HP connector <-----cable----> adapter board with MCU   -----> 4-pin fan connector (+ 6-pin HP-compliant one for backward compatibility)
       
      Desired functionality of MCU board:
      1. Working rotation detect with any fan based on rpm counter.
      2. MCU-based rotation speed regulation using both PWM and DC modes to allow support for any fan. DC controlled fan low-voltage cutoff detection should be included.
      3. "First-run" mode to check to lowest voltage and detect PWM-DC fan control functionality.
       
      I couldn't find some information:
      1. What 6-pin connector type HP utilyses to allow the board connection to Microserver mobo as I wouldn't like to disassemble the original fan?
      2. Have anyone tried the rotation detect imitation (having a 6-pin custom connector and a potentiometer would let me do that)?
      3. Can you help me to collect some information regarding the issue in this topic to make things easier as I can say there's 5 or 6 topics only on Reset and I also find some info on HP and other related forums?
