I was waiting for the TS140 with the Xeon 1225 processor to go back down to $330 and I ran across this deal. At this price the server is about $500 dollars less than anywhere else. The cheapest I could find it was on cdw for $959.99, it goes for $969.99 on Newegg and Ebay.

You will need to purchase Caddies for the hard drives. Part #03x3969 You can find them on E-Bay for less than $20 The server has negative ratings because the novice users didn't know that a lot of SMB servers do not come with the caddies unless you ordered the server with the drives.

Specs:
  • Processor: Intel Xeon E3-1245 v3 Quad Core Processor (8M Cache, 3.4GHz - 3.80GHz) 84W

    Hard Drive: None. Supports up to 8 x 3.5" Hard Drives

    RAM: 4GB DDR3 1600MHz | Optical Drive: SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-R/RW Dual Layer

    Power Supply:80 PLUS Certification: 450 Watt Power Redundancy: Optional Power Redundancy Scheme: 1+1 (with optional power supply) Type: Power supply - hot-plug

    PLEASE NOTE: OPERATING SYSTEM SOLD SEPARATELY.

Reminder: 70AQ000FUX uses 2.5" hard drives/caddy's part# 03X3836.

This is a serious tower server with up to 8 hot-plug HDD's. It's mean to be used as a server without ever needing a monitor. But if one must use it as a HTPC, a $50 video card will do the job. If this is to be used as a gaming rig or CAD workstation, a dedicated video card will be added anyway. The 450W stock PSU should support a mid-range gaming card or higher-end workstation card (probably making the most out of this build via this route) just fine, especially considering the Maxwell's power efficiency.

The E3-1245 v3 CPU alone is worth almost 300 bucks. Heck, even the kind and grade of chassis used on this build is hard to find under a couple hundred bucks.

This is a smoking hot deal period. I'm a small system integrator who *builds* custom computers/workstations for a living, and I didn't hesitate the slightest in pulling the trigger on this one.

My plan is to pull the E3 and use it on another higher end build. Then stick in a lower powered CPU and run this as a 8-bay file server and possibly more.

Thanks OP.

Oh man! I got the TS140 for $330. I'd have paid more for those drive bays. What a bummer!

I wonder how much the tray's cost.
