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.
