Was your unit made in Canada? I've heard of and experiencd for myself issues with the Canadian manufactured units. I have heard of people having issues with "creaks" on the upper corners. Myself, I had a unit that was randomly rebooting - I exchanged it the day after I bought it, and the new (Mexican made) unit works just fine. I have heard that the Mexican and Chinese units do not creak.
As a proud Canadian, I am quite disheartened by the poor build quality of Canuck units. It makes sense though - our labour costs more, so the Canadian manufacturing plants may be cutting costs in the QA dept.
