I've ordered a few servers from NewServerLife using ebay and every time, they've been very helpful and the prices are very reasonable. Shipping is quick too.

Bought a Dell R730 server for a client, and NSL was very prompt with responses about replacing drives that were dead on arrival. After a couple rounds of shipping replacement drives, we got all 8 up and running and their customer service was good. All-in-all, if you need used server hardware, I would highly recommend.

Got a server from NewServerLife on Ebay. They sent the server extremely fast, which was really nice. The machine I got as well was in really amazing condition. I've bought various machines on ebay before and it's not uncommon to have a seller throw in RAM for example that quote on quote "works" but has bad sectors and will cause blue screens during certain processes or they knowingly put in RAM that will die in a few months or a year. But NewServerLife sent me a machine that passed all my tests with flying colors. I've been looking for a reputable seller for machines like this for my home lab and I finally found one. So I'll 100% be back. Their website online has more options as well, which I'll be ordering from personally moving forward. Their customer service is great too. I was honestly really annoying with my messages as I was debating various components, but they were really nice about it. Also, they don't advertise what I'm about to say, so don't expect it every time. Usually when you buy refurbished or older servers, you should expect normal case wear and tear like scratched sides from datacenter racks, a scuffed up front piece, etc. But the server I was sent, it honestly looks brand new. I know it's a long review, but I was just really impressed and happy with what I received. I also really appreciate their patience with my questions. Thank you! Update 6 months later: Still loving the server so much that I had to update my review again. The machine is still running strong with no issues. Seriously, they sell quality hardware. Thought about them since I'm about to buy another server.
