    Purchasing Servers

    Who do you all purchase servers through?
    We have been dealing direct through Dell, however of late have become increasingly slow to respond to quote requests.
    Keen to find out how peeps purchase such hardware? I'm just looking for a quick turn around on quotes and decent service.

    @CPLTD and @VeryPC have been amazingly quick for quote turnaround for custom specced devices. They're worth a try

    You can always come to us

    Our refurb servers might not be quite the latest spec, but you get far more for your money as we're really cheap. Not to mention we give you a 2 year warranty as standard with options to extend it.

    Edit: I can't spell Quite!!!

    Dont forget Millgate. We do do servers, HP, IBM, Dell and some others. Quick turnaround, great pricing and service that legends are made of.

    We deal with: Millgate, IDN Supplies, Insight, HP Direct Sales, etc...

    We've generally ended up buying HP servers, but we might be changing that in future due to HP's firmware policy change. Most likely will look at either Lenovo or custom build by someone like VeryPC or Viglen.
