The big question.

If it works, then why do this?

As to the horror stories the most common issue is about 20% of owners know how to set it up. 60% tend to return the product and the remaining 20% know better than to try. (comment heard from some training session that I think is too close to the truth.)

I look at this from the time honored quote "If it's working, don't fix it."
