It's cheaper than stocking the replacement parts.Roku sent me a whole new remote for free when I called inquiring about buying a new battery cover for my remote which broke the tab off that holds the cover closed. I was sick of the scotch tape on the back of the remote and ebay turned up nothing, not even a broken remote of the same button config. for cheap.
A new cover for my coffee grinder costs the same as a new grinder.
So mine is epoxy'd together.
