We had 3 boxes for 5-6 years without a problem.  Then one of them failed.
We've since replaced that box 5-6 times in the last year.  The replacement
boxes often come with non-spining CPU fans and other issues so I'm not
that surprised.  The last replacement was a few months ago though so maybe
this one will stick around.

I think whoever is doing their refurbs isn't doing a very good job.  They
never seem very concerned though.
