filmscanners: Getting OT, again (was: Cleaning slides

Maris wrote (correctly)--

>Wishful thinking - how many customers would a manufacturer lose by not

on having replacement v. repair available?  Very few IMHO.

Of course not--because nobody offers it (or knows about it). And when
Crysler-Plymouth-Dodge offered a 50,000 mile waranty, they almost went out
of business, because they weren't ready for it!

OTOH, you'll notice that *most* auto mfgrs now offer an *economically safer*
bumper-to-bumper 3-year warranty (side note--Plymouth's wasn't b-to-b, and
stuff failed in the "fine print," big time!).

If I were relying on my scanner for my livelihood (which thank goodness I'm
not), 8-weeks of down-time would impact on me heavily. The only answer would
be to have two comparable scanners, one on-line and the other at the ready.
When it came time to upgrade them, you can bet I'd choose the more reliable
mfgr's scanner.  The Defense rests. :-)
