  1. Unmatched Bang for the Buck (Windows, Linux Server use)

    Posted by A Texas Computer Geek on 26th May 2017

    I've had my 490 for several months now, using it as a test bed and prototyping machine. We've been using 690's at work for years, so I was confident that the "bones" of this machine would be well-designed and built, and sure enough, the 490 is exactly that. The SaveMyServer folks dis a great job cleaning up and refurbing this machine; it looks and runs like new.

    Bottom line, this is the best deal *anywhere* for a machine in this class. And with a 2-year warranty? No-brainer!

    While the Xeon processors are old, the machine is a real workhorse. I added a second hard drive as a RAID mirror, but otherwise am running it as it came out of the box.

    Windows server configurations I've loaded and run for testing/prototyping include Windows Server 2012R2, 2016, and Hyper-V 2016. The machine supports Intel VT, and runs quite well as a low-end Windows domain server or virtualization server.

    For the past few months I've been running a Debian 8.7 ("Jessie") Linux base, using kvm/qemu/libvirt for multiple Linux and Windows VMs. I have a bunch of Linux VMs running on it, and they just hum along beautifully. Performance does bog down when running a Windows Server VM and a Windows 10 VM simultaneously (NOT tuned for performance); no surprise there.

    I haven't done it yet, but I suspect this machine would be terrific, performance-wise, as a Windows 10 machine. I'm considering buying another one for just that purpose, making it my primary Windows 10 development box.

    One consideration for home users, this is not a quiet machine when the fans spin up! The older Xeons generate some serious heat. This machine is built for that, and I've run it continuously under heavy load for weeks at a time without complaint. But it moves a *lot* of air over those heat sinks, and it's not quiet about doing that.

    I am not a gamer and so can't comment on graphics performance per se, though I've never had a complaint about NVidia video adapters, and this one is plenty snappy for me.

    For what I do -- software development, system design, etc. -- this machine works great, and offers the most RAM and processing power that I've found anywhere near this price.

  2. Solid purchase

    Posted by Unknown on 7th May 2017

    I got mine in 2016. Shipping experience was very impressive.

    Was quite skeptical of the system when I saw it first time. CPU technology 50+nm (now is 14-18) so the power it takes and heat dissipation, hmm...

    Went to DELL page to check for service tag - box was originally sold in 2008.

    Installed Windows 2007 prof with no issues.

    In a meantime (2 months) graphics went bad as on of the monitors wasn't getting signal. I've notified the service - they sent replacement card within 2 or 3 days, and it worked, well. Not bad at all...

    Anyways - got myself a "new" grandpa. .. but, overall the system works well, has tons of memory and 1TB HDD. Purchase worth the money spent.

  3. Awesome System!

    Posted by Jarret on 2nd Mar 2017

    I have loved this system which I am using as a Virtualization server (libvirt) for writing articles for LinuxForum.com.

  4. Definitley Satisfied

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Nov 2016

    Okay, so I was a little sceptical of this unit when I first saw it. It's darn cheap for the specs it has. But I called the company and spoke with a nice lady who assures me their warranty program is solid if any issues arise. And taking into account that the CPU's were last in production 10 years ago, I suppose the price makes sense. It's refurbished and the parts are a bit old.

    This product qualifies for the free Fedex Ground shipping. It took two days for the unit to be taken out of the warehouse and picked up by Fedex. Then only 2 more days to get here. I was really excited about that!

    The packaging was impressive! My unit was securely surrounded by 6-7 inch of foam that was then wrapped in a plastic material made by the company Sealed Air. It would have to be pretty hard for this thing to get damaged during shipping and that was relieving.

    I've not found any issues with the hardware on my unit so far. Everything is as described and I really can't be happier. It's an older machine, but the specs are still awfully impressive.

    This unit has been running an OpenStack lab for the last few days with no hardware issues at all.
