Plagued by backplane failures
Pros: Hot swap, power efficient, 80+ GOLD PSU's.
Cons: Backplanes consistently fail after 6 - 24 months.
Other Thoughts: I have ~10 of these in production and 3 backplanes have failed while running under normal operations in the last 16 months. Only solution is to remove the backplane making the drives no longer hot swappable.

Pros: It's a 1U server that takes up roughly about an Amp worth of power (at 115v)
Cons: It didn't come with a shroud for the Fan to CPU area
Other Thoughts: Using this to replace a ATOM processor computer that I outgrew in a Colo facility.

Pros: Setup is a snap. Hot-swap power supplies.
Cons: Power supplies could be more efficient. SATA cables are not long enough to reach an installed RAID card (depending on where the ports are located). Expensive.
Other Thoughts: PSU consumes more than a tenth of an amp when the server is OFF. The manual says a slim dvd drive can be installed but I could not tell where it would go, nor did i see any cables for one. For this price it would be nice if it came with a slim dvd-rom drive pre-installed.

Repairs and replacements can be costly.
Being covered against failures pays off.
