Nope. Not to my understanding. I was looking at creating dealer 'kits' for those who carry my product, where they are sent large sample pieces to lend out to their customers. They might last a couple of weeks.
One huge problem, I would probably end up replacing the 'kits' CONSTANTLY. Customers have a tendacy to handle borrowed product like ****, and I mean exactly that. So, you might say that's true ... but this is not everyone, that's for sure. Most will treat it well. then along comes the idiot, who thinks he deserves special treatment. One day selling high-end audio will tell you that.
So, it may not be the average consumer's behavior at all, but... with a solid lack of familiarity of screen material handling on the consumer's side (as well as not taking the time to make SURE the product is not compromised by others in a given household, protected from 'accidents', etc.), well, it's only a simple matter of time until each and every sample is ruined to a point where they are beyond any usefulness.
Once a item has been lent out a few times, especially something like a screen sample which is floppy, and hard to handle, well, you can see where the problem begins.
Just being honest.
Although, I will STILL give it a shot, and see how it turns out.
