LEN SV TS140 70A4000HUX Toweri3-4130 4G NO Raid 1c1p
First impressions Received server today, so this is just quick feedback for all you thinking about it out there.I got it for use as home server, similar to what other people use HP mini server. Nicely built heavy metal case, sound dampening and quiet. No dust filters.Inside it has:280 W HE Bronze PSU.4 memory slots, One stick 4 Gb installed.5 SATA ports1 PCI slot, 2 PCI-E X16, 1 PCI-E X42 well ventilated HD inch bays with front fan blowing on them, 2 HDs more can be installed into slots that are not so well ventilated.2 display ports and 1 VGAThere are reports about these servers (this one and earlier version, TS130) not supporting certain OS (i.e. Ubuntu, Centos).

These TS140’s are just priced right.This server version came with only 4GB of RAM and no Drives. There are two empty 3.5″ drive bays with cheap plastic drive caddy’s already installed.
