I actually quite enjoyed the discussion on clear coat issues, it brought a lot of facts to the table instead of people guessing what the issue could be. Although I am not a NIB person, I am even more stuck on seeing a game before buying.
I also wondered if a similar episode could have the topic of reliability of operating systems. For example there are a lot of comments regarding node boards in the Spike system. Is the Spike system really less reliable than SAM, or even JJP systems, etc.? I am nervous of buying a machine with the Spike system because of what I have read, but should I be? Can of worms I know, but so was the clear coat discussion.
