I think part of the problem is that we shop for products based on features and naively assume that there will be quality documentation... the kind of documentation we technical writers want to produce. The other thing is that product reviews seldom mention the documentation at all.

I agree that companies should provide detailed documentation. However, it
probably has more to do with what the market requires. How many people use
the quality of documentation when deciding what phone to buy? Or appliance,
etc.?
