I've been using the Dreamwear full face mask for six months having moved over from the ResMed AirFit F20 full face mask.

I love the new Dreamwear mask but I believe there is a design flaw. After a few months use the two magnetic holes on the sides of the mask that enable the headgear to fasten to the mask, rusts and warps from within the magnetic fastening holes. Once the external flat plastic casing that houses the holes distorts and warps it shape due to internal rusting, the headgear cannot sit flush against the mast and so won't fasten securely. As warping increases the headgear will detached more and more easily. I've experienced this problem with several Dreamwear full face masks over the past six months and the issue appears to be a design flaw. If Dreamwear did away with the pin and hole design and used a magnetic headgear clip similar to the Airfit F20 there would not be an issue.

Has anyone else found this a problem?

i use the Dreamware FFM 2times a week with the humidifier on.
i see the metal you are talking about in the magnetic attachment.
No indication of rust on mine, used this one for 2 months on a rotation.
I would hope Philips would replace your mask.
