I must say that i was little worried about the product in sense of quality, genuineness and support coverage by Apple in case if you buy and apple product from third party seller. Apart from all fears i took a daring step by initiating the buy from the seller, my all concerns and question were handled very appropriately by the seller which i also confirmed with Apple by calling Online Apple Support, i didn't find any point of difference. So my reliance was established before the product was arrived. I shall be conservative by not mentioning one thing " the product received like a flyer", very quick delivery. The only thing which i felt about it was the packing as i believe the carriers usually mishandle the product so i must say the seller needs to more careful for the delivery of expensive items as you can not trust the delivery guys.
Nevertheless, the items was as new as if you got it from the apple store. New, well packed (the way apple packs), all documents and accessories. In fact i was happy to see every part of item was new and un-opened, concluding to point that it was new boxed product. I had already performed analysis before the purchase was being made and so straight out of the box the server was working as expected in terms of speed, efficiency and performance. No issue at all. Whereas, keeping in view the nature of work i had take from this server i had already ordered 16gb (8gb x2) directly from crucial.com, which was well compatible with this server machine. I am having virtual windows machines over this server which is handled quite well with this level if powerful machine. It is a small devil.
The server machine is well silent more than my expectation. i have tried many times to hear any of the sound coming from the machine but there is not such complaint, brilliantly manufactured by Apple. No worries even if you place it under your table or bed. I have bought external Samsung DVD writer just to minimize my capital cost as i know apart from certain things you do not need external cd-rom for apple machines as almost all of the software are available in wat of .iso or .dmg files.
One important point which might be helpfull for the newbies, you must have a USB keyboard in order to configure it first time unless you already have some other Mac device which can be used to configure it remotely. I have not purchased any display unit with it as i am using the machine from remote access since it is kind of powerful server for my usage.
In short i am happy with the purchase especially the price which is offered by this seller. Honestly, no price comparison.
