In a few cases. On the URL you gave for the 16GB units, one of the
failures was after putting it through the wash! I tend not to launder
electronic equipment, myself. And still, 4 out of 5 isn't too bad.
For the 32GB SS3 part reviews are more favourable, 4.5 from 6 reviews:
And again, one person apparently expected it to survive a wash cycle.
I'll wait and watch, and will look for a local supplier re warranty,
though on form the price might be near double ..
