Each one of our refurbished Dell 2U rack servers is individually inspected prior to configuration. All rack servers we carry have been decommissioned and acquired from climate controlled facilities to include both colocations and data centers across the United States.

When your server order is placed, we build the server to your specifications, complete all firmware updates (to include bio's) and full integration of internal hardware components. Each server is entered into our warranty system by hardware part number, placement & type (Ram/HDD/iDRAC/PSU). Dell R710 Servers configured with 3 or more hard drives will be set by default to RAID5 and loaded with Windows Server 2016 Standard. 

If you would like to request a specific RAID level, or if you would like us to set up multiple disk arrays, please let us know in "Dell PowerEdge Notes to your Technician" We will review accordingly and reach out if we have questions regarding your order request. 

Our Goal: We understand time is money. With that in mind we want to build your server as close to turn-key as possible. When the server arrives, its ready to deploy around your schedule. Please don't hesitate provide us with as much detailed information regarding hardware set-up in the TECH Notes. This will help alleviate additional time out of your day, when we can simply do it for you.

    Clean and Nice Server

    Posted by Mateen Mohammed on 22nd Mar 2017

    This is my first server bought from SaveMyServer. I initially ordered gen 1 r710 but later called them and requested to upgrade it to gen 2. I just had to pay the the difference and they upgraded it quickly and dispatched it same day. I just bough barebone with ram. The server itself was very clean from inside and runs great. Thank you SMS for your excellent service. I look forward to purchasing from you again in future.

    Fast and Good

    Posted by DK on 5th Feb 2017

    SaveMyServer is a bit more expensive than others, but with the included 2 year warranty and great customer service, it's worth it. This is my second purchase of a R710 from SMS and highly recommend them. There aren't many companies who take the time to upgrade BIOS and Firmware versions for you prior to shipping out the products. Not only does this help ensure that you have the latest stable firmware versions, it also help ensures that the equipment has been tested.

    (02/09/17): Staff - You Rock DK - We strive for 100% Excellence. Thank you for your kind words. Let us know how it goes, we are happy to help! Brian

    Great first-timer experience

    Posted by SaveMyServer Customer on 8th Jul 2016

    This was my first time buying a 'real' server for my homelab and I was impressed with the quality. Besides a few minor scuffs the thing looks new. No dust, and they even threw in a free PSU! The R710 is a fun platform (I put two x5670 in it for 24 threads). Just beware 2.5" drives are typically more expensive per-GB than 3.5".
