Why do DSL modems suck so badly

Ok so I switch to DSL a couple of years ago since it was cheaper. I have been overall satisfied with the service although it's kind of slow. My biggest problem with DSL is the crappy modems. My first modem was the Siemens Speedstream 4100b which lasted less than a year. When that modem died I needed internet so I went to a Best Buy to buy a new modem. It ended up costing $70 plus tax for the new modem. The new modem was the Motorola 2210.

The Motorola 2210 ran hot from day one. I had bad feelings about it since I got it six months ago. Well today the 2210 is showing signs that it's going bad. This modem couldn't even last 6 months. I am hoping Motorola replaces the modem since it is under warranty.
