I have always wondered what sort of components these companies use in this
consumer-grade hardware. I have heard stories about most every kind of box
having problems, but the problems are not consistent from one box to
another, which leads me to believe that there may be poorly manufactured
parts inside. Or perhaps they all run on WinCE ;-).
