They are reliable; however, we have found that their servers are picky on upgrade options purchased from other vendors.

we have recently ordered a poweredge SC 1425 and are really pleased with it.

The only thig that I found stupid is that the options on their website are really priced too high. (100 for an extra 80 go sata drive.. ) But you can always add what you want later.

It isn't just that it's picky. You might void the Dell warranty by installing non Dell parts in the system, or replace existing ones with non Dell parts.

Their servers are very good, I would stick with their parts, and use the financing plans if you need to get a high end server that's over your budget. Their financial advisers are pretty nice and helpful with that.

We got a shipment of Dell 1850's in and I have been pleased so far. They are high quality machines and have been doing quite well. Other than the issues I had with initially purchasing the machines I ended up getting a great deal.
