I've been using a Cisco 3620 for the longest time....  other than needing to
replace a couple of fans, clean it a few times, and give up on using the
internal flash SIMM (using a PCMCIA flash instead) it has been great.

The thing eats internal flash SIMMs.... I used to have to reload IOS
every 6 mos or so....  with a couple of those times leading to not
being able to reformat/reload the flash SIMM.... (not to mention the
utter inconvenience).  Once I switched to using PCMCIA flash... it has
been using the same IOS load for 2+ years w/o failure.  Odd.
