Re: Still have A700, but poor QC and faults mean I don't use it much

You've made several posts about "poor QC". Would you care to elaborate?

As far as I know, your complaint with the a700 concerned the "skipping dial" problem that does affect some a700's. I've yet to read a report of this problem not being "fixed" by contact cleaner, but I agree with you that it is a problem.

I would disagree with you that this problem is QC, as all the a700's use the same dial assembly, but not all users experience the skipping. One could describe this as a design flaw, but I don't see it falling in the QC category.
