More IBM SurePOS hatred from a computer technician.
Another IBM product (which is now Toshibas nightmare), another capacitor fails. Unlike Dell and Samsung which moved away from the Chemi-con capacitors quickly after the lawsuits and disasters of PCs and servers dropping over dead in less than a year. IBM stayed the course and decided to make this capacitor the “Industry Standard” kinda like how industry standard for generating power is using a water wheel. Unlike my previous article I don’t think I have illustrated exactly WHY the capacitors blow apart so easily in these SurePOS units.
