4 out of 5 eggsNot perfect, but works

Pros: Works and reasonably inexpensive. Makes a decent (small) virtualization host. IPMI and the web management interface (two different things) are handy. For a rack-mount machine, these are relatively quiet.

Cons: Four 2.5" hot-swap drives are sharing a single SATA port. The configuration of the fans is a little worrying. They are just sitting in the middle of the case, without any plastic baffling to prevent air from doubling back for a second run through the fans.

Other Thoughts: We are using these as pfSense routers in schools. The builtin Intel GigE hardware works very nicely. With an Intel dual-NIC PCIe card installed these make an inexpensive and full-featured router/firewall/content-filter.

We've also used them as test machines in a virtualization cluster and they perform more than adequately. For dedicated VM hosting, a dual CPU box would make more sense.

5 out of 5 eggsMaximum IOPS 1U server

Pros: Pair this with a hardware RAID card like an LSI 9240 and four Vertex 3 SSDs and you'll be rockin' throughput. Perfect for a mid-level Apache server, a smokin' fast Win 2008 SQL Server or even a Zimbra server for SMBs.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Would like to see Supermicro expand the chassis for redundant power supplies and make room for a higher end 2x E5 Xeon with 4x gigabit ethernet.

4 out of 5 eggsBackplane is SAS Expander

Pros: In response to the previous reviewer: The backplane is cabled with a single cable because it is a SAS Expander (and SATA Port Multiplier.).
You _CAN_ use all 4 bays out-of-the-box IF you are using a PMP-capable driver and have PMP support enabled. While I agree that this is a somewhat lame default configuration (because you loose 75% of the potential I/O bandwidth), it WILL work for most modern OSes.

Cons: Default cabling is suboptimal for best I/O bandwidth. Chassis could be half-depth while still maintaining all features.

2 out of 5 eggsNot SuperMicro's best showing

Pros: Low cost, four hotswap SSD bays, dual gigabit, quiet for a 1U system

Cons: Out of the box, only one drive bay functions. Only one of the four hotswap bays is actually connected to the motherboard, and no cables are provided to allow you to connect the other four, nor is it mentioned anywhere in the manual.

Also the components on this box would actually allow a case almost half as large - it's like sticking a microATX mobo and a single hard drive inside a mid tower case, it's a waste.

Other Thoughts: It took me an hour to figure out why the hard drives weren't recognized, until I realized that only one of the four bays are actually cabled in, and I was using two of the three that aren't.
