I have only used Sun and aside from one a#$h0l3 engineer I dealt with in 
getting a Sparc 1 board replaced (back in my college days),  I have been 
happy with the results.  Occasionally you need to keep in touch with your 
Sun rep and  let them know of any issues or problems, but otherwise, things 
go pretty smoothly.

The power supply thing below is a classic example of going cheap and paying 
for it in your^H^H^H^Hthe end.
