Look at the serial numbers (or manufacture dates) of the one you are returning as compared to any others they have in stock. They may even be able to TELL you when they ordered and received them. I got stung by this myself, and unfortunately for me there was no replacement available that did not ALSO have the problem. My current understanding is that if you get a good one… it stays good. The problem is apparently a manufacturing flaw, not one that shows up over time. There are several people that have the R4512 and it’s fine. If it was going to DEVELOP the issue, I think it would have shown up by now.
