    It’s a great machine for what it is. I recently acquired this machine to run several different servers (Minecraft for leisure, teamspeak, etc.) and it handles everything well except for the latest release of Minecraft, in which case the DDR2 ram really shows its age.

    Other than that, it’s a powerful machine with two E5130s that tear through many tasks without an issue.

    I’m keeping my eye out for a used T5500 with two CPUs for an additional server to test out a Linux distro and the concept of establishing an AD fileshare system that integrates into a Windows domain.

    These old Dells are probably some of the toughest machines Dell produced, otherwise I’m at odds with the rest of company and the direction they are heading.

    Great workstation that can be easily modified into a stand alone server. I use a 690 in my personal testing network, and it is able to keep up with the workload of some modern hardware that our clients use. As with all aging hardware, the DDR2 ECC ram is rather pricey but is still accessible on the market at a decent price. Overall, a great workstation/power house if you can find one at a reasonable price!

    System was purchased to be used as a VM server but it instead became a file server. Features are suited for a home server / test box but not to be used for a server application in production. Overall the workstation has been reliable.

    Some desktops have a personality and this one definitely has a good one. Reliable and affordable (especially now – refurb). Like this, there are other devices too. Good idea to make list of good devices made by Dell for IT use.

    Have 2 of these machines .
    They are rock solid and reliable.
    I have run (as a test) a FTP server, busy web server ,DNS server, Domain Controller, file server at the same time, it has taken it all pretty well. It does the job .
    The SAS hardware controller is flaky. The software that runs the SAS controller is unreliable and not consistent.
    When a drive died in a simple RAID 1, I replaced and tried to re-synch the 2.
    It stalled and got stuck at 0% forever and never ever worked .

    Also…I feel the machine has a threshold with memory. After upgrading from 6GB of memory (upto 16GB) the performance or responsiveness of the machine really hasnt got better.

    I think its weakest link is the Hard Drive interface. Maybe higher RPM would help catch some speed.

    The product was delivered promptly. I was consistent with the product description. Most importantly it worked properly the first time it was fired up. I would purchase another computer from this supplier.
