My family has been using touchstones for a month now, no cracks to be seen. I've also been using a touchstone with my pre nearly two years now, and it is fine. The screen hasn't burnt out, or has burn in. Yes, there have been posts questioning about that too in the past. It doesn't matter if it is impossible with the technology, people will bring up a fear about it, ie screen burn in which is a issue on tube CRT displays not lcds. Or a glass screen cracking next after your speaker has cracks near it in the rear case.

Yet, people who are dissatisfied will make it a point to tell the world over and over again.
Even popular premium products with a reliable service record from the public have their problems. Look at Toyota, BMW, or a Mercedes Benz, they have service and repair shops at all their dealerships just like any other car company.
confirmation bias, its a very human thing.
