I had to take my MiniBrute apart twice.. so the second time I filmed it for anyone else's future reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tviyeJuWbhs
I have had no other problems with the synth. Seems worth it still considering it's so cheap, yet such a complete machine. Nice considering all points EXCEPT the keyboard. It had two broken keys when it arrived (used, poorly packaged) from eBay. I fixed those two keys and then a couple of weeks later another key sprung loose. When I looked closely this time I found about 5 cracked key posts and 3 posts which came off completely.
I am really feeling a sense of ownership now that I've had this thing apart twice.
