I have owned the e1, e-510, e3, e5 & e-m5 and had no issues with any of them.  The fact that you had two topline models spit the dummy suggests that you either were very unlucky to get bad batches of both or you are a heavy user and not exactly careful with your equipment.  I dont say that in a way to accuse or attack, but I am just quite amazed that you have encountered that..

Not so amazing.  The LCD split thing is a fairly common issue with the E-3.

Nacha's might be fixable with a home repair job.
