Of course it is better compared to not having a two year warranty at all. I'm also not saying that there are no valid reasons in certain scenarios to do it like that - putting everyone doing it in the bad corner.
But it could lead to negative publicity if there are warranty claims (particularly as there is no real experience with Eve products, it is a way to convince people to still try as they will have a little more security of not being left alone). And the community and Eve are all about openness and simplicity. This leads to my hope that this "small print" stuff should not even be considered.
Being convinced that the product is great, Eve should simply provide 2 years...
...or offer generally just one year and additional time frames for an extra fee (due to the rather slim revenue lines they have). Separating the warranty price from the product price provides a clear picture to the customers, and only who wants the 2 years (or more) actually gets it as there might be people that just don't care for it.
