I like mine; they're compact, reasonably speedy, and SPARC.  However,
they shut down if their internal temperature drops below 5C, a
temperature limit which cannot to my knowledge be reconfigured, and as
mentioned, they throw a lot of spurious PSU faults because the PSU fan
isn't spinning at quite the speed it should be.  I don't know whether
the newer PSU fixes this issue.

Yes, they're loud.  Let's face it, almost all 1U servers are loud.  You
don't want one in your livingroom.
