Comment Same thing with the 2011-2013 MacBook Pros (Score 1) 204

"replace a broken phone with a refurbished one that is subject to the same engineering defect that caused the phone to break in the first place." A lawsuit had to be filed against Apple for all the 2011, 2012, and 2013 MacBook Pros that suffered problems with failing GPU chips, before they finally implemented an extended warranty program. But all the warranty program does is allow you to get a refurbished motherboard with the exact same problem. My replacement motherboard died with the same issue just 1 week after it was replaced.

For DVD+Rs, I have noticed a drop in quality from Verbatim. The last few batches I got in the past 1-2 years have exceeded acceptable error thresholds in Nero CD-DVD Speed. A Taiyo Yuden batch I got a year ago passed with flying colors. Fortunately it was a batch made in Japan, as I heard they were moving production China - not a good sign. I'm looking for DVD+R DLs, and TY doesn't make those. Verbatim does, but the reviews say that quality has dropped ever since they moved production from Singapore to UAE a few years ago.
