_ So you work for Sandisk? _ Or at least “unofficially”? looking at the post count…
One has nothing to do with the other.
Yes, everything breaks down eventually, but not so FAST, right?
With the automated production of things today leading to lower prices (or at least keeping increases to a minimum), the downside to this is higher failure rates, especially in the electronic industry. That’s just the way it is.
Sandisk should send out new drives as replacements for obvious product QC problems with a prepaid lable for the users then to send in the faulty drives. People can not lapse weeks waiting for a replacement with empty drive bays… Kick up the customer srevice! I don’t want to see Sandisk “failing or breaking down” as a company.
I don’t know of any other company that does this, so you can’t really expect SanDisk to, can you? SanDisk’s customer service and their offered warranties (and support of same) on their products is second to none. If you browse around this forum you’ll find many, many instances of them “going above and beyond” normal standards to satisfy their customers.
