We have been using one of these for a year. It is nicely put together, and offers good price performance.
The problem came when we wanted to upgrade memory. We purchased through the Dell web site, they charged our card, and nothing happened. They didn't respond to my email inquiries. They didn't reply to my phone calls. I waited 40 minutes listening to their muzak before they cut me off.

Eventually (after more than 3 weeks) the memory arrived. It was the wrong memory (they sent us memory for an intel chipset); it doesn't fit.

I then have the same merry go round. They don't answer my emails. They leave me on hold for hours. Customer service transfer me to technical support; technical support transfer me to customer service, and customer service transfer me to technical support. This is an iteration that doesn't converge!

They haven't agreed to send the memory we ordered.
They haven't agreed to refund our money.

So - nice server but totally let down by inadequate customer support. I would never recommend a Dell server again, which is a shame because the iron is good value for money.
