Catastrophic failure of bottom screw mounts
I purchased my PBP in late 2019, and I've generally been happy with the physical build quality -- up till last week, when the bottom plate fell off.  No joke. Every single one of the plastic mounts that hold the captive nuts that the bottom plate screws screw into, has shattered.


Here's what came away with the bottom plate:


Thankfully, the PINE64 store will sell me a replacement for the damaged piece of the chassis (aka "PALM CASE WITH [variety] KEYBOARD") but I wanted to know if anyone else has seen this particular failure mode.  I'm a little nervous that the exact same thing will happen in another three years Confused
