An anecdote that is related to this... In January, on the day we (NACS.NET) had our open house, the RSP-2 board in our 7513 (which we bought used) died. Cisco worked with us to get a replacement in four hours, even though they were only contractually obligated to 24 hours. Kudos to Cisco's Cleveland office for going WAY beyond the call of duty. And when I'm ready to buy a dedicated router, it WILL be a Cisco. (Oh yeah. Other than that, no downtime issues yet.) -- Steven J.
