Cons: Very heavy, arrived with bad power supply. Of course took me a couple of hours to figure that out - thought it was something I had done wrong. Plus - how do you RMA a perfectly good case with a perfectly bad power supply?
Summary: Over-all, I am very happy with this case. My main gripe is with the front-bezel falling off whenever I open it. With that kind of construction, the front lock is a complete joke. Otherwise, this is an excellent case -- just so long as you keep in mind what it has and does not have. Make sure your motherboard has 4-pin fan headers to take advantage of the server-style adjustable fans.
Pros: Sturdy construction Good ventilation Two variable-speed 4-pin fans 4x 3.5" hotswap bays Plenty of room
Cons: No USB 3.0 ports No 2.5" bays No audio jacks No sata-3 support Front bezel hinges are flaky Power supply only has 2 sata connectors I knew going into it that it would not have USB 3.0, 2.5" bays or audio jacks. So I can't really complain about that, though those features would have been nice. However, the front bezel (door) falls off when I open it because the hinges don't hold it in place. This happened the first time, and every time after. Just poor design and poor ...
Summary: I have a dozen of these cases all running SuperMicro Server boards with Xeon processors to allow staff to take full advantage of virtualization limiting the demands on our traditional test environment and allowing for more flexibility. These cases have proved a very good base for these high end systems.
Pros: This case is a very sturdy capable platform for high end "server as a desktop" applications. The power supply is ample and very quiet. It supports our Dual Quad Core Xeons with Raid 5 disk arrays and all the extras without a hitch. The hot pluggable backplane with SAS/SATA connectivity has proved very useful and easy to work with. No issues with things like sharp edges. The documentation is very complete. The LED packages is well done allowing for individual drive lig...
Cons: The only thing I've heard any complaints on with my Engineering staff is the weight but that is a trade off for strength and capability.
Summary: Cannot return this unit since I throw away the box, since I have high expectation about supermicro product. It is not nice that you buy a product not working and cannot ship back since you don't have a box. Supermicro support is worse...
Pros: look good
Cons: Supermicro get worse in tech support along with newegg. Port 2 on hot swap sata does not work - which gives error message drive failed. Move drive out of the sata case, it works fine.
Summary: Собирал для небольшой компании бюджетный сервер под гипервизор. Поставил интеловскую мать и ксеон 1220 с обычным десктопным кулером, в общем конфигурация оказалась достаточно тихая и энергоэффективная. Корпус массивный, просто так его не сдвинуть с места) В общем отличное приобретение для небольшой компании.
Pros: Качественный корпус и БП, наличие хотсвопной корзинки под хдд. Хорошие вентиялторы, хотя их обороты надо регулировать в биосе материнки, иначе будет постоянный гул.
Cons: С учетом его параметров, цена недостатком не является.
