FWIW, we have 80 of the Sun v20z's (Newisys 2100) and we've been very 
happy with them (very well built, reliable, and no problems so far).  We 
have 16 Angstrom blades with dual Opteron Tyan motherboards (s2882) in 
them as well.  They initially had problems, but Tyan figured out the 
issue and shipped us replacement motherboards overnight at no cost.
