    Anyone running Dell R710's

    Just wondering what your thoughts are on these. We just got a coupler of them in....fully loaded, and it's extremely quiet compared to the 2950's III...or maybe it's my ears.

    I've yet to meter the power on them yet.

    Swear by these machines. Got a few in and will definatly be buying more for our virtualisation platforms.

    Also not monitored powered on them yet, just attempted logging into the APC's but turns out I can't remember the password of by heart! Will update you later with figures I have.

    None of ours have had any problems. By virtue of having nothing bad to say, I'd have to say they're pretty good machines.

    Runs as expected.

    Yes, we have one in our office, and I can't hear it. Very impressive.
