    Default Possible Untangle HW for under $200

    Haven't tested this. Looks like geeks.com is selling many blade servers for under $200. (They are refurbs)

    Yup, I've seen their list of refurbs. I've half a mind to buy some of that stuff at some point, but I'd put it though some serious stress testing before turning it around to a client.

    Some of those have some pretty decent horsepower for the price. It's hard to go wrong with dual Opteron 2.0 GHz processors, 4 GB RAM and a 120 GB hard drive, at under $200, especially when an enterprise grade 4 drive raid system will run close to $1000 (assuming you don't need it to have said raid setup).

    blades require a blade enclosure..that is just the blade but not the enclosure..so good luck.

    Just use a Jetway dual gigabit nic C7 itx board for $99, with a cheap ITX case and a gig of ram and a cheap hdd. $175 out the door for a untangle system good for 20 users.

    Technically, these aren't blade servers and shame on Geeks.com for listing them as such. They all look like 1u rack servers to me. They have a cool looking Appro Dual Opteron for $140. Has dual ethernet ports, plenty of memory and disk. Should work. Maybe I'll pick one up to play with it.

    The noise is one thing I was worried about. Not an issue if in a closet, but otherwise some of these rack units sound like a jet... Any way to quiet some of these units down, aside from disconnecting some of the fans, and maybe if dual powersupply only using one.
