Opinion: Gross Negligence or Shoddy Quality

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright guys, I need some input here. I'm really hesitant to post this to be honest because I hate feeding the fuel for brand bashing.

A few months ago, I recently purchased this case (Rosewill Blachawk):

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-107-_-Product

Today, I decided to do some basic maintenance on my case. I took it outside, got some compressed air in a can and cleared it out of dust. No issues. I put it back together, and I hooked it back up in my room. No issue.

While I was doing some casual gaming, I noticed that there were some finger print smudges on the case, so I decided to do a quick wipe down with some cloth and some ammonia-free glass cleaner. I could visually see where the solution was wet and when it was dry due to the glare.

I noticed something odd, however. On the glossy trim that boarders around the case, it appeared as if the solution wasn't drying. I thought I was mistaken, so I took some clean drinking water and wiped it with a new rag. No luck. This weird whitish streak was all over the trim. I took a look at the cloth and realized that the solution literally stripped the paint off the plastic trimming (again, note: this was ammonia free glass cleaner).

Long story short, the trimming that boarders my entire case looks like complete ass.

Is this an issue of shoddy quality or gross negligence on my part? Where should I proceed from here?

Thanks for the input.

You can't use glass cleaner on plastic/paint. It was your fault most likely unfortunately. Oh well perfect time to take the case apart and paint it
