Experience with buying used servers?

Does anyone have any experience with buying refurbished hardware? I've been checking out some used servers at Enterasource, particularly a Dell R630. Does anyone have any experience with this company or one like it? Trying to find something that comes with a warranty.

Rarely done but isn't this about 6 thousand bucks?

In reply to: Experience with buying used servers?

It's about 3 years old so it may be sorely out of date as well.

As to warranty, this is something you ask the seller. My answer won't apply as only they can answer.

For this in the thousands of buck range, you should be asking for a few year warranty or check if Dell can put it into their care system.

For the warranty, it seems you found what you sought.

I don't think many members have experience with this particular company, so I doubt if that part of your question will be answered here.
