Excellent value,some issues

What is your overall opinion of this product?
Compact, crisp and powerful. Up there with powered speakers costing almost twice as much. Fits into those carry-on size, rolling suitcases with the telescoping handles. Easy to transport that way.
Some issues I've had were: The trim breaks easily. While the larger molded cabinet pieces are sturdy, the skinny strips in between come loose and look unsightly.
The power socket should be more recessed: When using the D412 as a floor monitor it can topple onto the back panel and damage parts that stick out i.e. the power cord plugged into the socket. As of last night I'm faced with a blown capacitor (electronic component). Speaker's dead. I might buy a new one and keep this one for parts. Having it repaired is not economical since I live in a remote location. If you buy online all you can do to a broken one is to replace it. If I had more paid gigs I would rather save up for a QSC or EV
