            Won't argue with that. But I'm trying to look at the numbers in a "statistical" sort of way. A few low scores are understandable - that kind of stuff always happens. Then checking the details, a lot of people grumbling that the fake-raid doesn't work right, and that I attribute to the boneheadedness of even trying to use fake-raid in the first place.

            I'm more looking at out-and-out unreliability - multiple people with DOAs, multiple people having trouble dealing with support, multiple people having subsequent failures, etc.

            I also generally discount people who can't get Linux running on a board, though I read more carefully to see why. I've mucked with a fair amount of hardware, and generally gotten it all working, though I must admit that I don't do much on the bleeding edge. Even now I have a PCI soundcard plugged into one system because I haven't been getting proper volume out of hda_intel, though there have been substantial ALSA updates since I tried, and I haven't gotten back to it.

                Nothing new when your talking about professional class products. Tyan doesn't have one either.

                  The only search I have found that works is, Supermicro Talk, which displays info on servers compared, ie, Dell, HP, Supermicro, etc, which works for tech info
