"Poor Quality Control"2.0 starson by ianux48
Pros: Excellent Sound, feels good,
Cons: Non user replaceble battery, Apple, Quality Control
Summary: My son has used the 4GB mini for several months and has been very pleased with it, I went for the 6 GB model and have had two bad units , all factory sealed, I know faults happen , but I cant ever recall buying a product with so much hassle. I wonder if Apple's factory do any Quality Control at all?. The first mini had a defective LCD and was replaced by the store, after a 4 day wait for stock. The replacement worked fine for 6 hours then once shutdown failed to show any signs of life, would not charge or be recognised by the PC. The retailer told me to ring Apple, I dont think so, HELLO COMET UK its DEAD 6 hours old, after some argument based on the fact that the store has has lots of trouble with Apples return policy (like I care, we are talking consumer law here)the unit was replaced. however the replacement offered in the store (the only one in stock, a display model) was the wrong colour, dirty and would not power up at all. I took a refund. I wanted this to take on holiday, now two weeks later I have no IPOD and no time to prepare music even if I did. Apple sucks!
