That's good news, and it is indeed a very good promotion for their
customer service, as you suggest.
I note many companies which wish to provide fast turn around will offer
a refurbished unit back to the client when a warranty defect is
reported, but that can be problematic as well, as some refurbs are
considerably more 'tired' than others. Sending new product can be
costly, but might be worthwhile PR overall.
