I just bought a new music stand. When I got home and took it out of its box I noticed it had one of its rubber feet missing. This is not the first time this sort of thing has happened to me with Chinese products. In the past few months I have had at least two other items that were faulty and this meant multiple trips back to the shop. Problems include missing bits, the item simply doesn't work, or weak bits that break. The last one is interesting because some of the products are quite heavily built, but have a flimsy part that will break as soon as you touch it. China has learnt how to mass produce but still has a long way to go in terms of quality control.
