Simple one here. Of course yes or no is a great answer, but I would love to hear your why?
Know any good or bad stories from anyone who has purchased a refurbished server product - from a brand like HP? Or other major brand?
I am in the market for a new box. But times are tight, you know...
And I don't know much about HP's servers - other than seeing the names and models in tons of posts here on EE (DL, GL)...
While at their site - I came across this page:
Havent actually done too much homework on the savings, am more wondering if its even a smart move to consider. Certainly people are doing it - or else it wouldnt exist. But would you do it? Would you put your main Exchange install on one?
Or do you see this more as an option for testing, teaching, etc?
I have purchased tons of refurb laptops for employees and clients - but they were never critical machines...
Anyway - I will be quiet now and hope to hear some stories good or bad and or some recommendations - like "well, instead of buying refurb HP, why not________"
Thanks in advance!
