    There will be a MicroServer decorating contest and a MiroServer interpretative dance competition. If enough people bring their MicroServers we can have a stacking competition as well.

    Not much of a rack but I made it from an old chest of draws keeps my cables tidy and allows space around the different kit to allow it to breath. It's an old work station on the side I set up as a Xpen server to test out the resiliance of Xpen. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    Perhaps they don't actually know themselves where to target it, they've heard about people wanting a Gen9 so know there's a market but they just don't know what it actually is and where to put it, Home, SMB.. The Gen8 ticked a lot of boxes due to its cheap price and upgradability, something that I think they've completely missed on the Gen10

    Let us know how it works out and if you have any questions. My services business is based on the simple fact that margins/profit on selling most of this hardware is very small. Not worth the hassle dealing with distributors or manufacturers and the varied expectations of most consumers. (Amazon.com, Aliexpress, and other sources are cheaper and more convenient.) By getting above the fray and only providing services, I can be paid directly for what I do not indirectly. (As a consumer I was tired of someone pushing "brand N" thermostat on me because the distributor offered a $30 discount for Father's day and the dealer low-bid the install fee because they wanted to be "low bidder" online and make the profit on the back end with rebates and promo discounts.) The other aspect, which applies here, is that my clients hire me because they don't have the time or expertise, and more importantly, the desire to do it themselves. That means I'm not hiding technical secrets, tips, or real-world experience because I'm not afraid of anyone "stealing" my ideas or my knowledge. If anyone can do it themselves, they will and therefore, by definition, they aren't my target market. But by sharing, I might learn a thing or to from them in exchange. I started down this path because a close friend of mine had a professional AV remote control system installed. It had clunky overpriced hardware, would not work with an iPhone or iPad, and they literally had to call the dealer for a service call if they wanted to change a "favorites" button on the remote control to add a new TV channel or movie channel. Worse, the dealer refused to let them do it themselves. He claimed (which I later verified) that their reseller agreement with the manufacturer forbade them from giving the PC based configuration software, or required activation codes, to any of their customers or they would be terminated as a dealer and lose support for all existing customers.

    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.

    RESET Forums now has an Android app on the Google Play Store. I don't see it via search since it just hit but I have a hard link to it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapatalk.homeservershowcomforums&rdid=com.tapatalk.homeservershowcomforums You can install it from there. If you are a TapaTalk user it will look familiar with one caveat. You login with your RESET Forums credentials, not your tapatalk creds. Once logged in you will notice more options for your interaction, notification, etc. I hope you enjoy this app. iOS is coming soon.

    I agree with everything Spivr is saying. I love Blue Iris and happily pay them for every version they release and the iOS/Android app's as well. It's wonderful to have control over your content and a LOT of control/actions with your video feeds. This is a developer/company that I would hate to see leave because there isn't a lot of good alternatives out there.

    I received my Eero Pro Gen 2 3 pack today. Wasn't overly impressed with the Gen 1...migrating to Open-Mesh and ultimately Netgear Orbi. However I am liking Eero Gen 2 after initial testing for a few reasons: - range - perhaps not Orbi, still has a far reach across our entire property. - roaming - seems to be better than Orbi maybe because the range isn't quite as far, requiring APs to hand off more often - ethernet backhaul - iOS app - can see in near real time that my clients are being passed between APs And not a single client connectivity drop since I've powered on the units. Although it's a 3-pack, I'm playing w the placement of only 2 units. If I opt to keep this kit, I may hold onto one of the APs for later. Though it is somewhat peculiar that iPhone 7s often don't connect via 5 ghz band from only a few feet away. Still trying to figure that out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Depending on the prices of the beefier models. I can totally see this as a home server. I could see using a PCIe card with a couple of M.2 sticks with a server2012E OS mirrored, Dvd-rw in the top and (4) 6 or 8 tb reds in the front with Stablebit drivepool. Maybe even throw a Win7pro VM on it and do a HTPC/Homeserver. They should have put the M.2 x2 on the board to start with, but, I could work with it. At least HP is still working for us "Home Server people" hardware wise, I'm surprised they didn't stop when MS abandoned us. :-) Thx for all the early info, I will be watching prices as I am still happy with my X-510 WHS v1 right now. Take care all and enjoy.....

    @RobWu: I got the 160-XT with a 90 watt PSU from Leicke. I thought I'd rather have the Leicke PSU blow before the PicoPSU. The setup works brilliantly and is, of course, much quieter. Having said that, I'm already considering swapping this out for a 120-WI-25, so that I can squeeze a PicoUPS and a small 12v battery into the case. I only really need the server to shut down cleanly in the case of a power failure, and it should use less power than a regular UPS. Sent from my KFFOWI using Tapatalk

    PFFT CD's you old fuddy duddies, In all seriousness I recall having a lightscribe burner, used it once or twice and went back to my permanent marker, quicker and easier than lightscribe. I do have a DVD duplicator that I can use though and that thing burns and prints full colour DVD's/CD's quickly and cheaply. It is great to fill the input bin up have it throw a dvd in each of the DVD drives (via a mechanical arm) grab them throw them in the printer and put them in the output pile. Better yet it verifies the writes and throws the duds into a third bin to throw in the trash

    Although many IP Cameras have built-in motion detection, I usually prefer to let the NVR (Blue Iris or SecuritySpy) handle it. The reason is that with either of these packages, you can define virtual cameras that receive the same video as a real camera, but without pulling the stream twice from the actual camera. (The NVR software internally duplicates the stream). The advantage of this is you can define different motion detection masks, schedules, and triggers. For example, the motion detection mask during the day may be defined as a very small tight area, while the late night mask is defined with a wider area but perhaps more tolerance (to avoid false trigger by wind, insects, etc.) It takes more host processing, but massive cpu power, memory, and disk options in general purpose computers are relatively cost-effective anyway. Another benefit of letting the NVR handle all the intelligence is that you can treat the cameras as relatively "dumb" devices and choose based on image sensor/price or even physical appearance (to some people that matters most). If you swap cameras, all the hours you've spent tuning motion and other knobs and dials isn't lost having to start over. The NVR handles logging, archiving, creating image snapshots (if desired), backup to other FTP or NAS, and more so you don't have to navigate the matrix of camera features that are different from each camera manufacturer s/w or firmware.

    Hi! I just registered to share that I successfully did this mod. I'm running a 1265LV2. Previously with the 35W passive heatsink it would reach 80°+ after a 15 min 100% load. I've now installed the Akasa K25, feeding it 5 volts from the internal usb port, which I guess would make it run at 5/12 = 42% speed = 1250 rpm. The chassis fan (14%) is still louder than the CPU fan is at this speed. Below are my stable temps after a 30 min 100% load using 'stress -c 8', with the chassis fan at 14%. A 15° drop without affecting noise levels. I'm satisfied
