Mackie – developer of the Tracktion3 recording software I use did a comparison physical abuse test of several prominent mini mixing desks.

The tests included yanking them off a table onto a hard floor, walking over them, then walking over them with a heavy weight, then driving and SUV over them, then driving over them with a heavy pickup truck loaded with several people in the back then finally dropping them from the roof of a three storey office building. The mackie desk survived all the tests.
