If I was a manufacturer of products with a reputation for (or a
marketing angle for) the highest quality, I would send the stuff that
wasn't quite perfect in some way to the furthest part of the globe, from
where a warranty claim would be a time consuming issue.  Like Australia.
 Or to a place where consumers might not be as fussy as in (say) the US
or Japan.  Like Australia.

I live in Australia :(  And I've seen enough dodgy gear from all kinds
of places to allow this little bit of paranoia to slide ever so slightly
into the 'possibly something in this' basket.

Not that I've ever had a problem pursuing a warranty issue, with anyone.
 But it has always been time consuming enough for me to think twice
about bothering.  

But then, we've got the sun, the beaches, the girls on those beaches,
honest politicians ...,
