All brands have a few duds. It happens.

Actually, it shut off, not shuted.

And I've been following this event for a while. It seems that the issues are usually with the 333 series, but the 6260 is fine.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

I just noticed that

Keep in mind, it's not a universal issue with that series. It's a quality control thing, so the duds are hit-and-miss. You probably got a good one, and if so then cheers!

Speaking of duds,

Still power to my 6262, but no sound, power tubes aren't lighting up at all. No heat coming from amp.

What could it be?

You're going to comment on the reliability of an amp after a week of owning it?

And your calling it reliable because it didn't die when you cut power to it?

Give it another month before you start saying its reliable.

It's one of your tubes. Get a power and preamp tube that you know is working and put them in each of the tubes' slots until you know which one is the dud. Do this both for the power and preamp sections.

There are an awful lot of bugera failure related threads on UG. So for some they seem to be good amps but their failure rate is unacceptably high. Just like xbox 360s ONLY have a 16% failure rate unless yours is the one thats been fixed 5 times. But as bugera's are made by behringer corner cutting and cheap parts are to be expected. Im not going to buy a new amp and first thing I should do is put new tubes in it, they should just drop the price a little and ship em without tubes save everybody some time and effort. Im certainly not going to open up a new amp and fix design flaws as some have suggested. It works as intended and for more than a few months or it goes back for a refund.

Tackleberry, I agree with you that such obvious design flaws are fairly unacceptable, but in a lot of places, there is not a great alternative.

A new 6262 head here in Australia is $799.00. A new 5150 head is closer to $2.8k. On top of that, there is absolutely no used market, and used 5150s still go for enormous amounts of money, nothing close to the cost of a new Bugera.
