I bought a day 1 launch Gamecube and after 15 months I started getting a disc read error ... I called Nintendo up and they told me that, even though it was no longer under warranty, there was a problem with early optical drives and if my system was one of these defective drives they would repair (replace with refurbished system) it for no cost.

I don't know if Nintendo is better/worse for manufacturing hardware than any other company, but I personally love their customer service.
