SimpleSimon said:As for computers, that's what I do, so every one I build works A-OK with the exception of infant mortality component failures, and those are quite rare nowadays.
I was not including computers that a person builds. I built my own and even with that I had problems with a video editing card. (Long Story and it was bleeding edge at the time) I was referring to pre-loaded computers one would buy at a computer store.
The examples I gave ran over a long period of time and there are some of the experiences I have had with consumer electronics. Some of them have been features that have been half baked in my eyes and reliability issues.
Guess you are luckier than me with your electronic purchases but you still support my point from what I can see. Since you are also in the software field, I am sure you understand the Dish model. I think they are being too agreesive on releasing products but none the less it is a model.
The point is that I was taken exception to Gary's post claiming all his electronic purchases being perfect or near perfect. Being that he is in the Audio/visual consumer electronics field, based on my experience I am very surprised at his claim.
