We've got several 2650s. They work very well and we've had very few issues. My only comment is I can get Supermicros for a lot less money. We've found that the Supermicros are just as reliable but cost about 30% less for the same config.

That is not always the case, the Dells we got were a good deal cheaper than we get for similar Supermicros. You simply need to wait for the right time and get a good rep. That is an issue though, as you can't always get good deals.

Be aware that PE 6850 servers only come in 208VAC and higher. This has caused me to rethink deployment strategies in my environment.

Dell now has a good configuration spreadsheet that you can download that is comparable to HP's. You can spec your server and rack requirements as well or better than with Dell Rack Advisor.
