To celebrate End of Days! That was funny. I opened some gifts, drove in a snow storm, and shovel the drive ways. :)

So far, all our snow we wanted this month is falling all at once, on the End of Days. :S

I have a question for Allyn about SSDs. I am currently running my company on Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard and I need to transfer my HDD RAID 1 array (2x 2TB WD RE4) to my new SSD RAID1 array (2x 512GB Samsung 840 Pro). I have tried using Samsung Data Migration, Intel (acronis) data migration, and norton ghost to try to transfer the OS over to the ssds. I even to the risk of reseting the disks to non-raid and migrating from one HDD to a single SSD. Samsungs software keeps giving me a defrag error and intel and norton both don't support the OS. Can you recommend a good data migration software that can do what I am trying to do? The OS is currently 220GB so there is plenty of space to migrate. I contacted Samsung and they said they didn't have enough experience with the data migration on server platform yet. Please let me know what I need to do to transfer the SBS 2011 OS over to the 840pro raid1. Thank you.

You would think after spending over $1200 on drives that you could actually get them to work right....

For my needs, the NUC is exactly what I have been looking for. This is the 1st retail board available with a SATA III (6 Gb/s) mSATA slot. I simply want extremely fast disk read/writes, desktop functionality to access the Internet, run apps locally, and stream media to my TV. I am no longer a gamer, so that is not an issue - and I am not planning on getting Wifi (will use Ethernet off my router for Internet) - having only the mSata drive installed won't raise the heat issue - and I had been wanting to go with as small a form factor as possible just for the fun of it. Coming from the days where it was common to spend big bucks to build or buy a PC, I have no issues with dropping the extra money on a 256GB or the new 480GB Mushkin mSata drive to get tremendous performance in such a tiny footprint....Not for everyone, but thought I give an example where this could work for some. thx! (Have not seen any ITX boards yet with SATA III on the mSATA PCI express slot....)
