More on the Xray T2007 bearing problem

Xray bearing

Like we reported a while back, the Xray T2007 has a problem with the bearings not lasting the distance. This was originally thought to be the not enough lubrication applied by the bearing manufacturer, well the scientists over in Xray did some more research and found that:

The situation is in fact due to the increased precision and higher tolerances of these ball-bearings; when dust or carpet fibres enter into the ball-bearing it becomes trapped and the ball-bearing locks up and unfortunately, this tends to happen sooner than the previous batch of ball-bearings.

Nice way to put a positive spin on it there guys. Anyway click here to find out what you should do to stop this and maintain your bearings.
