$374.99 free shipping

Same deal as was live in January: http://slickdeals.net/f/7631096-lenovo-thinkserver-ts440-xeon-e3-1245-3-30ghz-4gb-ddr3-450w-psu-370-free-shipping

Amazon specs list E3-1245, Lenovo's build paperwork (and comments/reviews) state that its the E3-1245v3. GHz makes me suspicious, but I am still willing at that price for either. http://download.lenovo.com/parts/...ations.pdf

It will also need HDD caddies/trays, for $15-20/ea.

Sold by Computer Upgrade Kings.

typing this from the previous ts440 deal. couple of tips:

it was indeed the 1245v3

need to buy an adapter if you plan on buying a video card that requires additional power

boot up times are horrendous because of the raid card.

that said, its a fantastic gaming/editing pc. only thing i regret is not being able to overclock the cpu.

The RAID time is indeed real, but its not that bad IMO. Then again, my server gets rebooted very infrequently.

Twice the cores (1245v3 vs 1225v3) and more MHz, and twice the HDD's. That was a great deal as well, especially if you want to run the mobo/CPU in a different case. You can part out a backplane and PSU for over $100 after fees without issues.

Can I use non-ecc memory in this? I have 16 gig from another pic I'd like to use.

Looking at TS140 Xeon or this TS440 for a Plex Server, File Server, Backups, and maybe Surveillance dvr.

Generally speaking, which would be better?

If you need more than 3-4 hard drives, or want to put in a full size graphics card, get the TS440. Otherwise, get the TS140.

I know they're but how is the power usage compared to a Proliant n40l?

This uses only 40 watts with three hard drives. It comes with a LSI 9240-8i SAS raid card and two back planes / drive cages.

TS440 will handle more simultaneous transcodings. Not sure what OS you intend to use, but the ram should be fine unless you plan to serve a bunch of other things with it.. As mentioned, getting 8 drives is nice too. I'm sitting at 14tb usable space in mine right now, but I need more upgrades.

If you intend to use an unconventional NAS os (I am using unraid) flashing the raid to IT mode can be a pain. Doing so gives you total access though to each drive, pretty much making the card a Sata controller. My server boots up in about 30 seconds due to that...not too bad.
