From a security standpoint, it's better to err on the side of caution. How easy/tempting would it be to add little bits to the device to record scans & pins, or mess with other bits of data? Nope, from a purely security POV, anything goes slightly wrong, and back to the shop it goes.

From a user standpoint... just how hard a drop does it take to bugger the damned thing again? *Thunk* "About that hard" DAMNIT!
Knocked off the desk onto the floor. Yeah, that's $300 of the shop's money down the drain, and a lot of days we're lucky to pay off the electric bill.

This reminds me of an episode of The Persuaders (I think) back in the 70's? Where they were responsible for transporting an attache case from A to B and it was being thrown around all over the place/dropped off buildings/involved in car crashes etc... and at the end when they hand it over to the proper owner whilst outside in a park they get told its actually got a very sophisticated bomb in it which could be triggered by the slightest touch ie a falling leaf... cue one falling leaf which idly drops onto attache case and the case duly explodes...
