These systems are my personal favorite. Their construction is very nice for access and for rack units are very easy to install. The software installation and updates for firmware and drivers is very easy. Compaq has always impressed me as a company of technicians that really knew what they were doing.
These systems are good. Some of the models have some pretty poor physical designs - while other models are very well done. Their new LP1000,2000 line seems to be some pretty solid work. Their automated installation systems are not as developed as Compaq's. In addition, their firmware/drivers update will have you running around on the internet getting downloads and installing them individually.
They have a few too many models for my taste, but they are cleaning that up. Their systems are built very nice and their software installation processes compare nicely with Compaq's.
They are relatively new to the server market. Their systems have signs of their imaturity in the market, but I have repeatedly heard that their support teams are excellent and very responsive. It's probably their biggest selling point.
