PAX3 – Good luck on warranty replacements. 1st PAX3 died within 6 months. 2 weeks to get the replacement. 2nd PAX3 died within 6 months. No replacements available. Offered through web site and in retail stores? WTF. 10 year warranty is useless. Company is useless. No phone support. Email only. Good Luck
Yep, I agree. Same story with firefly and Davinci. Will never buy from any of those 3 companies again. I am still searching. Will try Arizer next. Am on a Crafty right now and it fell apart in less than one year. They agreed to take a look at it, but it took them over a week or two to respond.
