If you have been down that long Mits should compensate you in some way. You do have a Halo product. If you have an attorney in the family get them to write or call the executive office. Also you can always use the Social Sites. If you keep your facts accurate and repost when they delete it someone will wake up over there. No part, no parts.. I know that story because it happens with all manufacuturers but your warranty should get extended or some kind of excahnge offered, something. ... your attorney might could push them for a refund.
I will add I have wondered about the wisdom of paying top dollar for the LaserVue and stated so on more than one occasion. Production numbers are too low and they don't want to scavenge the production line for pieces. What happens when parts get short after warranty... can you say SOL!
