A question...

for all you electronics buffs out there. Is it really, absolutely, critically necessary to keep every box that electronics components come in, as some unnamed person in our household insists it is, JUST IN CASE said component should happen to break and need to be returned to the store or manufacturer?

i dont.

I keep boxes, packing material for a week or two until i know the unit is good, then i just keep the literature, warranty info and burn the boxes.

if the unit needs to go back during warranty period, find a generic box and get some bubble wrap. good enough.

if the unit breaks after the warranty expires, you're hosed anyway
