We got in the cart and went home and carried it inside. We unwrapped it later and OMG!! the whole one side was completely damaged along with the leg broken. this means they damaged this hutch while wrapping it up. I never thought about standing there to watch them. I went back to the store and told manager and he got the employees and they said I inspected it and nothing was wrong. they claimed they didn't damage it. So i got stuck with this broken hutch.

BEWARE OF THE LIARS!!!!

I was trying to buy a computer desk and did not want to deliver it already assembled - it is more likely to get broken. So I asked if we could just check the parts list and let me take it home unassembled. They said 'sorry sir, this is China model - there are not instructions or parts list'. I just laughed and said that must be why so many things are assembled so poorly. I still need a new computer desk... (my original desk has one side crooked, the sliding glass was not lined up, and the drawer never worked quite right)

I think a big problem with the longevity of electrical items here is bad power supply and surges.

I've got UPS between the sockets and anything of value that I really don't want to fail.

Even if the item is a second it will probably give good service. A tv would be classed as a second if it had more than specified failed pixals, most tv's have one or two. If they are in the middle of the screen it would be much more of a problem than tucked away on the edge. There are only a few screen makers, LG being by far the largest, same with mother boards, so whatever the brand they share many components. The PC industry being another example.

That's right, the quality of both materials and labor here is substandard.
