^^ He'd recommend it if collected data suggested a statistical likelyhood of reliability. Your counterpoint amount to the same as "I have a friend who had a Focus stolen off the street. My [Honda/Acura] has never been stolen. Therefor, Fords are stolen more often than [Honda/Acura]."

However, by the same token I'm dubious on hard data as collected from end users... while the machine we got might be fairly close to the same (and even that I doubt) the conditions under which they operate and the routine maintenance they receive could be so wildly different as to hurt the results. I'll check it out when I get home from work.
