Sorry if I have missed that in this thread.
Bottom line is 8 million odd Pi have been sold and as far as I can tell few have come back as "not fit for purpose". So it would be interesting to know what your special case is.
Right OK -
Official 2amp power supply
Pihut usb hub (specially designed for PI with no voltage feedback)
8gig Class 10 branded Microsd
Raspbian Wheezy 4.1.13-v7+ #826 SMP (updated to latest)
Omnikey USB card reader -> plugged into external hub
HDMI monitor connected
It's never run at over 36 degrees C or over approx 3% cpu usage (spike) usually about 0.3 to 0.7%)
Running a small program called Oscam < 812kb in size. NOTHING ELSE.
Oscam simply reads the card every 7-10 seconds and provides a small web interface to see the results.
The same app (same build number exactly) runs on a 10.04 LTS Ubuntu pentium laptop with less ram and approx the same processing power (single core though). This has run for over 4 years without reboot. This server also ran an MPD server, FTP server, samba server etc and didn't break a sweat. The HD crashed on this and then I saw the beautiful Pi2 and thought, what a perfect solution for a simple app as a great price
The same app havs run for months on an old WRT54gl router running dd-wrt. I have even have it running emulated on a windows 7 PC for several months.
Actually when I think about it the ONLY thing it crashes on is the Pi2
