Our Used Dell PowerEdge 2950 Gen 2 2U Servers (8-Port) 8 HDD Bays (2.5" Hard Drive Bays) were recently pulled from a climate controlled facility. The exterior of the Dell PowerEdge 2950 server has minor scuffs and scratches consistent with cabinet mounting, server stacking and normal use. At SaveMyServer.com we stand behind our used dell servers.
2950 Server Refurbish Process: Server Refurbishing process consists of both physical appearance of the server chassis and components, as well as full diagnostics. We do not use ghost images. They are unreliable across multiple configurations and third party components. When a server goes out our door, we know that it is ready for a full production environment.
2950 Testing and Build Process: The SaveMyServer in-housed tech department starts by setting up the bios, configuring the controllers, build an array, update the drivers and firmware, install Windows 2008 or 2012 Server Evaluation Edition operating system and proceed to run full diagnostics. We perform a clean install on each refurbished server. We also perform the Dell OpenManage PowerEdge updates, bringing the components like the system bios, PERC RAID, network interface and other Dell drivers up to their latest version.

Turned it on, did not have a 2.5" hard drive on hand so I tried to boot off of flash drive loaded with Debian, did not work. Then I tried to use the 2 sata ports inside the unit to plug in a 3.5" hard drive, but there was sata power-cord for the hard drive to work. So now I am waiting until my 2.5" hard drive arrives so I may actually load a hard drive.
But this was all my error for not having the right hard drive.
I have only 2 problems:
1) The 1 trey caddy I ordered did not come with screws
2) THE NOISE THESE FANS MAKE GOOD GOD. I have no idea what dell was thinking. Everytime I start it up there is a Boeing 40-thousand pound thruster taking off in my room. It echos through the house, wakes the kids, alerts the dogs, disturbs the neighbors, and informs the police of a possible Russian Tupolev Tu-95 bomber in the area.
I found that soldering 47 ohm resistors calms the fans down tough, but I have yet to test the CPUs to see if they could stay cool without the grouping of jet engines pushing 3,000 cubic feet of air through the heatsinks every second. For God's sake the first time I pushed that power button I was almost ready to get in my car and chase the airborne rack server before it could take orbit and crash into the international space station.
But overall this is a very reliable server. The "used" part of it did not seem at all of a problem; it was obviously well kept and well refurbished.

Unbelievable service. You can speak to them on the phone and they warranty their products better than Apple.
All prices are in USD.
