Dell PowerEdge 1950 Review

The Dell PowerEdge 1950 is the smallest of the Dell new rack server lineup and features a slim chassis and is fitted with 2.5 inch hard disks that provide plenty of fault tolerant storage.

Located on the right side of the front panel, the drive cage of the Dell PowerEdge 1950 features compact dimensions, which allows grilles to be placed on either side to promote airflow through the unit.

The PowerEdge 1950 can also be had with a two bay cage if storage is your top priority. This cage can be fitted with larger 3.5 inch SATA or SAS hard drives.

Located to the left of the Dell PowerEdge 1950 is the LCD panel and a DVD drive stacked underneath. General build quality of the Dell PowerEdge 1950 is excellent, with everything stashed neat and tidily.

The processors of the 1950 are equipped with passive heatsinks combined with horizontal vanes that extend to the side in order to increase surface space.

The eight dual core fans provide ample cooling and are set across the width of the chassis. These hot swappable units are embedded four dual modules, with eight memory sockets located at the back of processors and shielded by a plastic shroud for improved airflow.

The Dell PowerEdge 1950 also features a RAID controller, which is located behind the front panel. Those that don’t require a RAID controller can opt for four port SAS controller. Located at the back of the motherboard is the DRAC 5/I card and pair of PCI Express 8x slots.
