Nothing necessarily wrong with that, though.

Are you being sarcastic? Why would you willingly pay 1200 dollars for a card that a - was defective and repaired, b - initially 'escaped' quality assessment?

As long as it warranted as new, and it was actually fixed at the factory before release, I have no problem with it.

The story seems thin on evidence, though. There could simply have been too much flux on those chips in the first place.

Such an excess of flux, which has not even been cleaned, may mean that manual corrections have been made on these cards.
Or in other words - somebody made this up.

And devices being reworked at the factory isn't any big deal, it happens all the time. Open up your TV, so the wire or two running access the circuit board? That's factory rework.

See above. It's very. very common. I'll bet you last vehicle that you purchased had a ton of factory rework in it.

Tesla is manually repairing Model 3s off the fresh off repair line at a extremely high rate as well, people are still buying out the cars faster than they can make them. It's sad, but business is mainly about winning mind share, not maximizing quality.
