Nexus Q Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is the easiest to repair):

Removing the top cover requires no tools. Very limited amounts of adhesive and fasteners with no exotic screw heads simplify disassembly.

Very few components are soldered to the main boards, making replacing them easier and less expensive.

The entire disassembly is pretty straightforward.

Lots of components could make you lose track of important parts if you're not careful.

Everything is packed very tightly into one package, which makes replacing some components a tad difficult.

The power supply is readily exposed once inside, making repairing the device a bit dangerous unless proper caution is taken.
