Data loss, crashes, security breaches – the results of hardware bugs can have serious consequences. Even a small overlooked detail can turn a product into a nightmare for both customers and manufacturers. In today’s episode of PCGH Quiz Time, you can prove how knowledgeable you are about troublesome hardware like this.
PC hardware has been so complex for many years that time and again a problem is not discovered by the manufacturer in good time and faulty products are sold. In the best case, those responsible then react quickly to iron out the error and replace the customer with the bug-plagued product. In the past few decades, however, this has not always worked – some problems went undetected for a long time, others were hushed up or downplayed by the manufacturer until the pressure became too great. This time at PCGH Quiz Time, you can test your knowledge of a selection of the hardware bugs, big and small, that have stirred controversy in the past.
