Just like any other China built product, more are total trash than the 1/3-1/2 that are awesome. Chinese quality control is the ultimate oxymoron. The design of the Madass is great. It's the execuion, especially the electrics that fails. You will find people who swear by them (they were lucky to get a good one) and thse who say horrible things about them. They are mixed about 50/50 because that is about the ratio of ones put together correctly versus those thrown together. If you want to gamble with $2K go to the casino.
