Yes, you'll never get anyone in the trade to admit
"local prices are so damned expensive due to the mega markups
charged by the multiple middle-men who are all involved to
import & distribute this item from the factory to your LHS".
From the reactions so far no-one has the experience of the Japanese modells going broke (more quickly then in the US fi).[/B]
Have heard of some 3PK breaking down after short use.
All have been fixed under warranty satisfactorily, that I can tell.
Like any electronic gadget, it probably pays to do "burn in" when
you first get it. Leave it on for extended periods, use it to the
max. It it doesn't break down in the first few weeks intensive use
then good chance it should soldier on forever.
No reports of ppl breaking the screen on 3PK... yet!
(have heard broken screens for R1 & M8)
