Zoom X7n: overcome with its fragrance

[link to this post]
Took delivery of this router this morning, removed all the packing, plugged it in and began setup.

I started to smell a whiff of plastic which I thought would quickly die down.

After about 90 minutes I had to remove the plug because the fumes got so bad.

The router was warm to the touch but not hot.

After removing it from power the fumes quickly dissipated.

Filed a return request with Amazon.

I'm sure I may have just had a faulty unit but be careful.
