I usually take 2 points off for CapXon. For fuhjyyu and brands like that, 3 points will come off. For Sacon, 4 points. They are the only brand I know of with 100% failure rates after 1 year.

Why are we "ducking" points again?
Shouldn't we be docking them or something?

Deducting -> the duck thing -> ducking

Besides, it's possible to dock a duck, since they do have a tail.



Or it might have been a misspell or maybe Wolf coined the term in one of the reviews... Who cares, as long as it's clear we meant "deducktion"

You're right, I overlooked them as I thought they were NCC's like on the primary & secondary sides of the main PCB.

Mostly due to a color thing, and reading the review on my lunch-break today.

I think he might have meant Duckula, a former regular here. I haven't seen much of him at Hardware Insights either, btw.
