Title: A Powerful desktop!
PostedNovember 9, 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
I wanted a desktop that could run couple of VMs in parallel for testing purposes. This applies to both HyperV and VmWare Workstation VMs. This is proving to be an amazing machine.
I have a triple boot system with Windows 7, Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 2012 in place.
Works smoothly! With a 16 GB RAM and i7-3770 processor config that i have, I can easily run 4-5 VMs at a time.
PROS:
1. Bunch of ports.
2. Both USB 2 & 3 are on front and back.
3. Panel is easy to open.
4. Enough RAM for small businesses like mine.
5. Supports the kernel mode debugging via USB 2 in Windows. Good stuff for Windows driver developers.
6. Relatively quiet even when pushed to the limits with processing tasks.
7. RAID option is available.
CONS:
1. Adding a HDD requires a caddy. Extra caddy is not shipped by default.
2. Lack of IEEE 1394 port. But ok since it supports USB 2 debugging method.
From my experience with the desktop, I can safely say that this is a solid machine which can be trusted to give good performance and is reliable.
Pros:virtualization, software development
