Yes, this has been beat up on all over the place. I don't like the stuff. I just put together one and it was simultaneously too hard, too soft, too brittle and too flexible. It is pretty, but after having to take my finest razor and go into all the deep corners to trim out both annoying flimsy flash and cut out thick stuff, then finding out that the crap does NOT fit together correctly is beyond annoying, it is stupid. I spent forever trying to trim stuff off one part that kept flexing like a rubber band, then forever working on a part that almost seemed to want to break into pieces (and did in spots), then there was the parts that looked like it was two crammed together bits, which IMO points to an inability of the manufacturer to bother with making sure the mold is fitting together correctly.
