£80 cash back only if you buy it with an OS, £40 otherwise.

You are incorrect

I like this. Can you clarify where the part number is shown? thanks

Not true.

Should be noted that this does not come with a hard drive. I think this is the best value T20 offer right now. I have ordered this last week along with a Xeon E3-1225 from ebay.

Only thing is that ebuyer send you an invoice with the wrong product description, the CPU is wrong but the product code is correct. Hope Dell honour the cash back.

Now £150 with free delivery?

Sod it, for £80 its time I upgraded the old N40!

Yup, now £149.99 with free delivery - after cashback that's £79.99. I got one of these a couple of weeks ago from Servers Plus. Mine will have worked out at about £85 after cashback. It's a pretty good deal, the T20 isn't as well put together as the HP servers, but it's still very cheap for what you're getting.

good for plex? Can it transcode 1080p?

With an upgraded CPU yes.

I find with plex its best to encode your content in advance. Actually I think thats a new feature? I do it manually with batch scripts but pretty sure the plex pass version does it automatically.

I run a self built server with a J1900 processor that transcodes 1080p just fine. 1 x 1080p & 1 x 720p simultaneously works fine.

The G3220 has a PassMark of 3190 and my J1900 has 1916, so this should handle a couple of 1080p live transcodes without issue.

This doesn't come with an OS on it does it?
So what OS can you put on this, and roughly how much would it be? I'm guessing Windows 2012 R2 would be the best options, but what would that cost?
Also, would PLEX be ok to install on this, and use as a NAS, as an alternative to a Synology DS215J.
I pressume this would be a much better option to a Synology NAS would it?

I use my N54L (being upgraded to a T20) as a NAS with Xpenology installed. That gives me access to plex etc as well. Very easy to set up and a great interface.

So, may be stupid question, but can I stick windows 10 on this and use as web browser / office as well?

Looking for something to stream Plex and dl torrents primarily, so low power consumption - cant see any details on Wattage on this?

When idle with 3 x 3.5" SATA Disks and a DVD/Blu-ray reader fitted it pulls around 32W - possibly lower with the disks spun down. When the CPU is busy (but little disk activity) that ries to around 60W

How many hdd will this take. My n40l is still working but when it comes to replacing will need to take the 5 storage drives currently in the n40l and the os ssd so 6 drives in total.

What are people's thoughts on this for running ESXi?
(None of the virtual machines will be particularly resource intensive, just allows them different functions to be given individual machines.)

I bought this from ServersPlus last week. Was £185 including delivery but came with a 500GB HD (and also £70 cashback). I bought an SSD for £27, DVD drive for £15 and cable for £5. Assuming I get my cashback, new computer for £162. I installed Windows 10 and Office, all runs fast and quietly. Also looks like it has good upgrade potential so this should last me for quite a few years (the PC it replaced was originally a 1.8 GHz Core Duo that I've had since around 2008 with several upgrades during that time).

​Best option would be Linux for free!

Can I ask a silly question. I'm looking for a new desktop PC. Will this do if I add my own Hard drive? I don't know what is meant by server

Anyone know what sort of monitor outputs this has? Can i dual monitor from this or would i need to install a graphics card?

Correction...Cheapest option would be Linux for free.

yes if you add your own hdd you can run windows on it. It is a server as it is designed for server usage but it works just fine as a desktop pc.

it has a VGA and dual displayports. The displayports cannot transfer audio btw, only video.

Also.. .can generic RAM be used in this, or does it need to be Dell specific?
(They always used to be bad with custom types of RAM, but don't think they're so bad these days.)

And... can all three video outputs be used at once?
Edited by: "_g_" 7th Dec 2015

Gone for it - thanks.

It says wait 30days for the claim on ebuyer site, but can't see any mention on Dell... anyone just gone for it?
EDIT: never mind - need a serial number...

On the Dell site I believe it explicitly states after 30 and before 60 days when I looked.

Iam after a cheap solution to back up via a wired network my sons win 7 ultimate gaming PC could I install freeNAS and run a daily complete backup of his machine with this?

Have this. Bought it from several plus. Have installed an ssd. And it's running Windows 10 very nicely. I have also added a internal sata card to expand the number of hard drives it can take. Way easier to set up than the hp ml10 I bought.

I think i read that all 3 video outputs can be used at once. Not sure about the memory, you definitely can mix the UDIMM memory with other memory, whether you can remove it an install regular DIMM memory i do not know.

It's easy and has a GUI like Windows, I prefer it (for a server)

This is far more upgradeable.
