Comment Warranty at Portugal (Score 1) 156

The warranty period is for AT LEAST 2 years, or anytime later if you can prove it was a manufacturer defect (basically impossible except if it is a class issue).

Only who knows the random-challenge can check that the vote was indeed accouted for that "vote option". Should I start run to go patent this? :P
