7) Overall, the closest analogy to me is, it is similar to the plast Behringer pdeals. Most of them sound damn good, and are cheap, but I'd never not have a spare just because the housing all feel junky.
In my experience, though, the place where Behringers fail are not in broken housings, but in failing internal components/connections... the kind of quality control you can't see or feel from the outside.
Personally, I've had good luck with Berhringer stuff that has few components and controls (i.e. their powered speakers), but not so much with their mixers, which have tons of knobs and connection points... just too many points of potential failure!
