In my experience, yes.

I like mine. :)
It lacks 2 main things:
- SCA driveplane
- second UPA slot
Other than that, it's a reasonable facsimile of a Sun U60. The benefit
is taht you don't have to find SCA drives, just 68-pin drives. And, the
price is typically less expensive. I got mine (base only) for about$65
or so(can't recall exactly) shipped.
The most expensive piece was adding a 360Mhz/4MB cache CPU to it - it
cost more than the base system. If you can deal with 200Mhz CPUs, you
can get a couple very inexpensively.
I feel that they compare very favorably to a Sun U60 otherwise. Mine
certainly beats the pants off of the Sunblade 100 it's replacing.
