    But you pay for that crap, so it should either work or should not
    be there at all. (IOW, I find it strange that people are used to
    pay even moderate money for something that's mostly useless, because
    even when it does work it's of such poor quality that they don't
    even try to use it.)

    The board could have been somewhat cheaper without the parts that
    are of poor quality.
