Sorry to hear about your DR800 problem, cmichaelis. That's a really disappointing thing to happen.
I received mine the same day as you, March 8, and it's fine. But that's not saying anything -- it's only been two weeks. Others haven't had their units much longer since it only came out at the end of last month. For all we know, each and every unit is lemon waiting to be revealed. Or your device failure is rare and unique, a freak occurrence.
Either way, it truly stinks to be the person with a bad product. I hope the resolution goes smoothly and quickly.
