Westone Monitor Vault: First Impressions - Page 2

post #16 of 17

I'm thinking about getting the monitor vault but am hesitant because of all the negative reviews surrounding the plastic used in the cases since it seems that many have had problems with the clasp or something else breaking from normal use.  Can anybody comment on theirs and give an idea of roughly how long they've had it and whether or not they've had problems?

Well, this is my second vault. This replaced the last one whose latch also cracked and became inoperable.
The concept and size is nice but the plastic used in the latch is too thin and brittle.

This replacement just lasted all of a month and no particular hard use.
My guess is the plastic latch is good for fifty openings and closings before the whole case becomes useless.

Now I'm stuck looking for a good replacement. Anyone have any good suggestions?
