    This musta taken forever. So long.

    You're be better off doing what the itpro.uk and storage review guys do and just say "it's a great server"

    If you work with these servers every day you can appreciate where the $$ spent goes.
    The part about the power were consumed and cost it’s easy to see why the total lifecycle costs are important, and purchase price is not everything.

    Own 3x R720's and after working with these vs a bunch of HP hardware, Dell is such a drastic improvement!

    Hi, does anyone know if I can use all 10 bays for SATA drives connected to single PERC H730p? And if I order server with only one drive, will it arrive with all 10 disk caddies or will rest of them be just blanks?

    I like these long reviews. When I get one of these in 2-3years used, I'll know what to expect.
