A friend of mine had problems with x3250; specifically with the mpt disk

something in the driver. If you can verify that your machine doesn't
have this controller, or you don't care about disk IO performance, it's
a good enough machine.
Did you use SATA disks? There was a recent patch a few months ago to make the
mpt(4) driver enable the write-cache on SATA disks. It may require changing
a loader tunable to enable it by default though.
Good idea, he probably did use SATA. I'll tell him about it.
