I think that on low priced items that some/many(?) vendors
do a rather cursory test and assume that the law of averages
is on their side for the rest of the functions. In the long
run, it probably pays off for them. I know some swapmeet
vendors here who guarantee parts in just that way. Some
may not even test drives that far. But they will stand behind
the DOA thing.
