    Question Your server preference? Dell / HP / IBM / Other?

    Just wondering what is your preference when choosing a vendor based server as a provider? Do you go with Dell? HP? IBM? Or another vendor to offer to your customers? What are your reasons for using the brand you do?

    In all fairness, I'd rate it like this:

    #1 IBM
    #2 SUN
    #3 SuperMicro
    #4 HP
    #5 DELL

    I've found Dell becoming VERY hard to work with over time!

    Personal preference here:
    #1 SuperMicro
    #2 Dell
    #3 HP

    Everything else after that, also I HATE IBM, at least the ones I had to deal with. I give supermicro #1 purely from a cost standpoint, if you need that little extra something, definitely Dell or HP.
