What do you think of Chinese knockoff products?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Let's not start a flame thread here.
I just want your opinions.

What do think of products like this?

Nothing wrong with them. They're usually aimed at those that can't get/afford the item that is being replicated. I've seen some pretty impressive knockoffs.

Most are garbage, some are pretty decent.

Some work really well. Although it isn't really considered a knockoff, Meizu has some very good products. I have owned their M6, and to this day, I have not found another player that can beat it's sound. Cowon doesn't even cone close. Forget about iPods.

My friend got a chinese iphone knockoff. The screen couldn't detect his touch most of the time and the screen cracked after about two weeks.

I've had a client come in with a knockoff 256GB Kingston Flash Drive, which are real, but he bought it from China and it was stuck in raw mode. Used everything to try and format the damn thing, and it would work if you formatted it with Acronis but as soon as you unplugged it, it went back to raw mode. What do I think of them personally? Depends. Some are good money saving products, others are just crap.

I've bought extended battery knock offs for my Evo 4g for only $8 and they hold 80% of a $60 Seidio extended battery. Still running strong after 3 months of usage.

Good thing about cheap knock offs, when they fail (they will fail), you don't feel guilty for losing the product since they are so damn cheap.
