    RM F-Series NICs

    I had 3 NICs out of a total of around 150 RM F-series computers go on me before Christmas. The machines we're 3 years old in January so the MOBOs were replaced under warranty (The first 2 without hassle).

    Just had another one go today. Sadly warranty is up. So it looks like I'll need to buy some low-profile NICs.

    Anyone else having problems?

    Not actually got any of these RM machines, but if you want a NIC with a low profile adapter you could try the D-Link DFE-530TX. I recently got some of these & noticed that they supply the low profile riser bar.

    The NIC of choice here is the 3COM 3C905. Its available in a low profile form factor and its absolutely bulletproof. Supported by just about every operating system under the sun I think

    Not sure what exactly is going to happen but RM are picking up the machine next week. Would've been sooner but we had a cock-up at our end. (Probably should rephrase that)

    Pretty sure the warranty has run out so I'll have to see what they say no mention of money or warranties has come from them yet.

    You may have to keep an eye on them. I know of a school near mine that had an old RM machine & they let them take it away to have a look at it. They replaced the HD with a 10gb (that was the size of the original), reinstalled the software & charged themnearly a couple hundred quid for the pleasure.
    This machine wasn't even worth resurecting.
