Pros: This things is rock solid VMWare Esxi 4.x and updated to 5.x with zero problems.
Cons: Power supply went bad. 3 year warranty really doesn't mean as much as you think. If you're in the first year of warranty, you will get a cross ship.

Cons: Server shuts down or freezes on Black Screen. No fault codes issued. Tried with and without RAID card, different drives, memory, reflashed BIOS etc.. Could be the board, backplane or powersupply. Getting a RMA to give it another try.
