Ok...so you're saying anything can happen. Great. Although true, not really helpful. Stereotypes do come from somewhere after all. There is a reason a lot of people don't buy Chinese stuff, why they don't trust Chinese stuff, and why it's so much cheaper than other stuff. Sure not EVERYTHING made there is crap, as I mentioned in my comments above, but a lot of it is. And that's where the stereotypes come from. This is a "chance" game. You have a much higher chance of getting junk if it's made and designed in china (by a chinese company, not under a different name), than you do if it's made in other places like western Europe, Scandinavia, US, Canada, etc.OK, all you xenophobic fellow ZX riders out there in the virtual globe; OK, hold your right hand up if you think the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indonesians, Malaysians, etc, (include all Asian, & Southasians) make cheap crappy stuff.
OK, now if you own a Accura, Honda, Infinity, Lexus, Nissan, Subaru, or Toyota automobile put your hand up.
If you own a lawn mower, edger, leaf blower, snow blower, or other electronical/gas powered lawn equipment put your hand up.
If you own any other Japanese scooter, 4-wheeler, or other motorcycle, put your hand up.
Those of you with any Apple products... any Apple product put you hand up.
Who out there has boosted their car/truck stereo? Put your hand up.
Now, those of you that "Just Do It"; socks, shirts, work out gear, casual Nike clothing, golf bag, cleats, jock, swim suit, etc... you can put your hands up
Oh, yeah, who out there has a computer? You stick your hands up.
I'm getting tired.
By now my overwhelming redundancy has made its point. Homo sapiens can make stuff, any kind of stuff of stunning quality. They can also make unadulterated bile stench crap. No continent, or country has a lock on either extreme. To think so is unmitigated idiocy. No exceptions.
Get real; I'm such an old codger, that I can remember my dad telling me, "... if a diamond cost you a dollar, then it's not even worth a dollar....." And he was speaking of stuff made in the good ole U.S.of A. Buyer beware.
