Bad power supply

Catherine P., Newegg
20 September 2013
  • Pros: Everything is there ...
  • 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?

Good, but not awesome

David C., Newegg
21 August 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Sturdy construction Good ventilation Two variable-speed 4-pin fans 4x 3.5" hotswap bays Plenty of room

  • 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...
  • 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.

Don't buy this

Quang B., Newegg
6 September 2011
  • 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.
