Is there a place in the StackExchange network for questions on any hardware related issues? It seems the answer is no, but please correct me if I'm missing something.

For example, StackOverflow is for any programming question related to any library or any language. But when I search for hardware I see only Recommendations, an Arduino site, an Apple site, and a Raspberry Pi site.

It seems to me that it is counter-productive pigeonholing each specific hardware issue into its own sub-site. It makes it harder to stumble upon related issues and you get fewer eyeballs looking at the issue set as a whole. In my opinion, a hardware.stackexchange.com where you could ask about anything from a chainsaw problem to a smoking PS4 would be a hell of a lot more useful.

I ask specifically because recently I've purchased an electronic device and I'm having a number of problems configuring it. The company offers no official support and the forums are the usual cesspool of misinformation and internet adolescence. Having a Stack site to ask about the issues and have useful answers get voted up would be a huge improvement.
