Gee, I've NEVER had one fail in any of the gear I have. I
did have an "X" capacitor fail in a big switching power
supply, but this was just a capacitor on a board. I've
never had a Corcom or other brand of power entry/line filter
So, I think that one particular type might have had some
kind of manufacturing defect.
