Poor Quality Control  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I give this a 2.0 for poor quality control. When I first received it I installed a 9v battery and turned it on. Nothing. I noticed that the battery was getting warm. I removed the battery and did some checking. I found that the 9v battery line was shorted to ground via a solder splash. It works now that that has been fixed but how can it leave the factory in such a condition?
