I used to buy a lot of Monoprice products, and was quite happy. The prices were great, and the quality was high. I was also happy when they started expanded their product line, until I found that the quality had deteriorated significantly. Cords and cables stopped working after just a short time. It got to the point where my wife would give me a dirty look when I would order something from Monoprice. The last straw was a soft guitar case, where the zipper failed shortly after I bought it, sending my guitar crashing to the ground. No more. Not long after, I saw a Monoprice exhibit at NAAM. I told one of the Monoprice employees about my experience, and they were not happy. They asked for my card, and offered to have someone contact me after the show was over. I think that was 2 1/2 years ago. I’m still waiting... Buyer beware.
