I found out this week that sometimes goods and services purchased in China can be of low quality. I just spent last weekend installing the LED modules on the QR clock PCBs that I discussed a few posts ago.  At the time of writing, I was really impressed with the overall quality of the soldering job on the PCBs I received from Myro, and although I wasn’t exactly looking forward to the prospect of soldering for 20 to 25 hours, I was excited to finish my QR clocks and ship them to my customers. Unfortunately, I ran into a few hiccoughs.

When a lot of people get excited to have all their sourcing and manufacturing done for them, they often don’t realize how often complications occur.
