I'm interested to hear people's opinions about RM. But not the usual 'RM are.....(insert insult of choice here)'.
About two years ago, I took on as part of my job some IT technician duties (the rest of the time I was doing Science & D & T - small school!). At the time I was fairly proficient at doing things on stand alone PCs, but with no real knowledge of running a network of any kind.
Our network is an RM CC3 on with a few 2.4 stations still around. When I started, my views on RM were not too favourable and were based on the fact that we had some horrible RM machines at my school and everyone else I knew was then using BBC Bs! This was 'cough' years ago!
Two years on and I'm now a virtually full time IT technician and feel I can get our network to do most of the things I want and sort any problems that occur. Most of what I know is self taught with help from my colleague and reading up about stuff from RM. I find our network is generally stable and fault free (with the odd blip here and there) and easy to run.
I find that the equipment they supply, albeit on the pricey side, is reliable and does the job that the School needs it to do (see the RM One mobile review).
So, apart from pricing, what do people think? I know that despite my initial reservations, I am happy with what we've got (Connect 2.4 excepted).
