    Hi all.

    I know I'm late to the party, but recently ordered a new x86 II Ultra. It arrived with the onboard Realtek ethernet not working, and I suspect also an issue with the eMMC since any OS installs warned me about the disk being corrupted.

    I'm busy RMA'ing it but should I rely on the new board working 100%? Or should I look to switch to another vendor? I'd like to get a specific project going and this is holding me up, and I'd prefer to be able to rely on the hardware. A great example is that I have almost 10 Raspberry Pis and I've never had to send one back. Thats what I was expecting.

    I have the original UDOO Ultra x86 and run it 24x7 with no problems. No reason to suspect the x86 II should be any worse.

    I also have a Udoo X86 running 24/7 without issues. There is a test image on the eMMC that needs to be erased or overwritten before you can use it as an OS installation method.
