We bought a few of an earlier version of these
-- the SV24 -- in my office for systems development
work. They are pretty nice, although crowded, to
work with, but I've had problems with the fans in
the power supplys; they don't seem to last very
well. I suppose it's possible that the newer versions
are better in this regard...
