I grasp the concept, just wonder why the diminishing returns started on the first console and not the second slotted, with a third or fourth consolde having even less to offer. More a curiuosity than anything else.
And my answer is - there is no diminishing return at all. You just have the wrong mental image of what the resistance modifier means. (Which is hardly your fault, because Cryptic doesn't describe it well)

Adding a fourth console gives you just as much extra time-to-live as the first console. This means a lower damage reduction in damage then the first console did provide, but if the first gave you 20 more seconds to live, so did the second, third and fourth.
