If it fails early, it gets returned to the store or to the

If your whole computing centre gets compromised because a packet logger
could be inserted into the router, return to the store is your least
problem.  Being able to determine possible scope of a security breach is
certainly important.

You create a whole lot of hypothetical situations, but people buy
these things at Sam's Club for $35 and they work just fine.  What
compromise has there ever been that allowed someone to put a "packet
logger" into the firmware of such a thing?  Who would bother?

Spammers who like to build botnets out of domestic PCs for example.

Do you know of any instance where the botnet was built by compromising the user's router firmware? That is pretty farfetched.
