Pros: Good options (the different versions have lots of networking configurations).
Cons: had a few QC issues lately, still mostly arrives working.
Other Thoughts: Supermicro does require a credit card hold for a cross ship. That being said I routinely get a cross ship even a few months out of warranty when needed. I would use supermicro products all day long, and I run a tech company. It all comes down to hardware knowledge, this is a budget product so it isn't as robust.

Purchased two for Proxmox servers
Pros: Not sure what happened for that other reviews, that is very atypical for supermicro. I've ordered dozens of server chassis from them over the years and never had one with problems. We purchased two of this model for a proxmox cluster, and paired them with an adaptec 6405 with the solid state bbu. The cable adaptec supplies works well in this chassis.
Cons: It was odd, in one box there was a full manual and no overall layout sheet...in the other box there was the sheet but no manual. Not a big deal though.

Pros: None at all.
Cons: Received this unit & it was faulty due to the mfg poor QA inspection. We have a offsite tech person who comes in once a week & as the system is a build your own, we were still waiting for parts to come. Unfortunately it took longer than 30 days to discover this error so we had to take it up with the mfg. Talk about a run around. Wanting us to take a picture to show them that the CPU socket pins are not soldered correctly so not able to use it. Not able to take a picture, would need one of those tiny camera's like they use for a colonoscopy to be able to get a picture to show that. It has taken them almost a week to finally give us a RMA # so we can return it. Unbelievable & very unprofessional. Never had service like this from a mfg before. Even trying to do a cross-shipping is outrageous & they want to charge us for their poor craftsmanship???? Unreal. Our IT person said he will never recommend another server from Supermicro Systems again & he own his own IT company & services many businesses. Wouldn't even rate it 1 egg but need to give them some rating.
Other Thoughts: While our experience was bad in dealing with Supermicro Systems, in no way affects how we feel about Newegg. They have been very helpful & showed true customer service, unlike Supermicro.
