The Behringer issue isn't so much that the allegedly ripped-off products look similar externally. The issue is that when the circuits are compared to the "original" product, they are nearly identical. You'll find a decent number of heads that are going to look somewhat the same, but it's what's on the inside that we're concerned with as far as product copies go. Back on topic: This sounds like one of those "infant mortality" type failures. These do happen with any product. I think it's pretty inane to jump to conclusions about a product like this, even asking if it's "too good to be true" over one failure on such a new product. This product is NOT proven in either direction. Initial impressions are very positive, and I'm impressed that such a good deal is out there. Give it a year, or more, then we can decide on how tough, reliable, and bombproof these are. I don't mean to take away from the experience or confidence of anybody owning or looking to own one, but you have to realize that this new product is not proven yet. Given the reputation of old Kustom stuff and the new engineering staff, I'd have no doubts that these will be holding up. There's just no point in getting so worked up on either side about it.
