    Hi

    I'm a newly approved US resident and as such have had to wait a loooooonnngg time to get a bank account/credit card. Its finally here so I can order my RBS (and core when its back for sale). Stoked.

    While waiting I have been reading pretty much all I can about the RBS and have seen a number of issues being posted on here. They seemed to have dropped of recently.

    Is there anyone out there who has ordered one recently? Are you still seeing the same issues as some of the first batches?

    These issues aren't going to put me off ordering but it would be good to know what to look out for.

    The most common issues I have noticed are;

    • Overheat
    • Failed power brick
    Have I missed any?

    Like I said it wont put me off purchasing, just looking to collate a checklist for myself and other future buyers.

    Cheers.

    For the stealth, i would probally wait for the second model to drop, I wouldnt buy it after hearing people have to RMA 5 times to get a working model. Or just go with the blade 2016, I have barely heard about a problem with them.

    Wow, are things that bad? Im guessing the second drop wont be for 12 months or so.

    Do you happen to know where you've seen this? I'd like to reach out because this shouldn't be the case.

    I only RMA'd one time because I had a warped space bar. Now everything is working as it should be. Except some Chroma software issue... I reached out to mod's and they've found a bug fix. Just waiting for it to be released now.

    Thanks dude! I will add this to my list. I am going to go for it today, mainly as I love new tech and want to try out the core and I dont want to buy the 2016 Blade and the core

    just noticed that my 2016 blade 14" has a slightly warped space bar as well. It doesn't bother me at all though, it still does what it should.

    Keep in mind, all of these issues, aside from the failed power brick are either Software or BIOS related and will be fixed in time. Some people are saying wait, but that's a choice you will have to make, they wont be releasing a new version until next year at least, and chances are you'll be in the same situation.

    Great job pulling all of these issues together. I haven't noticed any of these personally, but it's good to see someone taking initiative to collect all of them.

    I have a question for you: if it is software related, why some customers do not have these issues?

    They could have just stress tested the machine and the problems then came up.
    Ive have my RBS for 3 months now and I havent experienced any issues, I waited for the initial orders to be done before ordering mine. I don't foresee you having any of those issues OP

    I do not see how it explains anything.

    It could explain the fan noise and overheating and the standby power. If the bios has a few bugs it could cause the fan to keep running at that high level for example causing the noise.
    The keyboard issue could be from them trying to play around with the synapse software and it messed with the keyboard that way.

    Uh Maybe not robust and rugged enough? My dog ate my laptop and was unable to submit my assignment on time. My teacher didnt believe me.
     
  15. I am currently on my second razer stealth and I just got another RMA. My first issue was a wifi adapter issue where it wouldn't connect to 5Ghz connection but would connect to 2.4 Ghz connection. I got a new stealth after that and when I got it, it has a issue where the fan will click 3 times every 5 seconds whenever the computer is on and I have been dealing with that for a little while. I recently decided to try to get it repaired and reading all these issues i hope they just repair the fan and don't send me a new laptop. I honestly love this laptop and it's perfect for me, just waiting on getting the core.

    Thanks, have added to the list.

    Glad to hear you love the Stealth. I think a lot of people are waiting on the core. Will be a good quarter for Razer
