I remember years ago when Gateway came out with a new monitor, they were not made and calibrated correctly and the screen was canted on the display. I was lucky enough to get one of these and called tech support about it. I was told that the monitors were assembled in Mexico and since I was in Oregon the screens was canted because of how the screen was affected by the earth's magnetics. Being a former electronics tech I asked if he really believed it and he said it was true.
Anybody else run into implausible reasons for tech not acting correctly?
