I didn't really think my submission was provocative but, based on the responses, it seems to have incited a lot of negativity for some reason...
I've had 1 part, and -only- 1 part "fail". That was due entirely to my design (I'm still a n00b, I admit)
My first week of ownership has been great, and I have recevied several requests to make items for, gasp(!), for real, honest-to-god currency no less!
I didn't buy it specifically to make money, but to learn and make things I need. I am also learning, however, that I "can" make money with it if I put forth a little effort...
Items I've made during my first week:
SSD Docking Station case
Dashboard to hold the speedometer/turn signals/ignition/GPS/Go Pro mount for my DR650
Fan Grills for my computer
Liliput 7" LCD back cover that mounts it into my spare drive bays in my computer case (so I can run my monitoring software there while gaming on my main screen)
Replacement door hinge kit for my Obsidian 800D Case
Wall-mounts for my surround speakers
Raspberry Pi case which also mounts a 4-port USB hub
I'm also currently in the design/prototype phase for a SFF HTPC Case.
