Default C24 Terrible Finish....Is Yours Wearing Thin?

I've had our Control 24 for less than 4 months, and this thing has to be the most poorly designed unit from a cosmetic standpoint I've seen.

Already, the area around the "SAVE" button is dingy, and when I went to clean it WITH ONLY A MOIST RAG, as instructed in the manual, more of the surface finish started smearing and coming off.

For 6000, this is unacceptable. I'm meticulous about my gear and this is rapidly starting to look like a smudgey mess...wondering if anyone else is having these problems....

Note the review in EQ mentioned that the surface mars easily....this is also true. But the wear factor on this thing is nearly zero. Be warned...Any input appreciated.

I'm having the same problem with the area around the save button and the talkback button. I suspect other highly used areas will suffer the same fate. I love the unit otherwise and I'm currently in discussions with the dealer about this problem.

Same problem around the talkback button.
It's extremely ugly.
Our unit is only two months old!

Same problem here. This is gonna look really bad in another year or so. I do love the C24 regardless.

.....same thing here. We have had ours since March and the area around the page buttons has worn completely through.

I assume you are talking about the printed text on the board. Would some sort of clear coat over the text be a solution?
i.e. A light coat of nail polish or even a flat finish polyurathane?

Maybe it would work, but mine is ruined already. And it's not just the text, but the whole thing that wears off.
