for me, you should go for the quality, because that's the reason why you pay the price, for good quality.. but when you can go between the line of quality and price, then its much better..

Quality is the most important although we know a quality product is a signature merchandise and this quality product has a high price. For all the consumer out there they must buy things/stuff may depends on there budget so its depend upon the budget , if you can afford to buy the qualitiy product ,buy it but if you cant why yo u will forced yourself to buy those item and which will cause to shortage. if in case your money is not enough you can roam around the mall to search for that item which has a good quality also but with low price , but i know roaming around or searching around cause you to consume lots of time but still you need to do it because you only have budget aloted money. my answer is Quality product but the problem is can we afford it or not so most of the consumer chose to buy the product which has a lower price. like me i chose to buy most of the time the hongkong or china product just to be practical at all time but i k now it will not last longer , but am happy coz i have that item for a month what so ever. anayway its cheap ans since the season of today is so trendy every month they new fashion, new product etc . i can have it wisely without overspending. k goodluck

I think quality is much more important. Give you one example, you pay 10 dollars for one lower quality for one cell phone,and it can work for one year. In another word,you pay 10 dollars for a not good phone during one year. Another, you pay 15 dollars for a much better one,and it can work for 2 years. That means,you pay 7.5 dollars for a much better phone during one year. Which one do you prefer? In my mind,the latter deserves the money.

It really depends what you want to purchase as to whether you want high quality or low price. I've heard it said that, if you need brain surgery, you definitely want high quality over low price. If you need a bandage for a paper cut, then low quality is probably ok. If you are looking for something to use long-term, then a high quality purchase at a high price may actually work out to cost you less over the long run. If I can choose between buying a high quality item for $10 that will last ten years, or a low quality item for $2 that only lasts one year, I would spend less over a ten year period buying the $10 item rather than purchasing a brand new low quality item every year and spending $20 over the ten year period.

I think as per the view of a middle family person a combination of both quality and low price is an issue of concern..But this is also changing rapidyly because of the retail boom.. The layout in retail stores is so designed that people are motivated for impulse buying rather than choosey buying behaviour.. I being a management student from india have closely studied the prevailing retail formats and came across this decission. now the importance is that which strategy can attract your customer in a best way.. low cost amongst the competitor with best quality..thats it..the recipe for becoming a market leader.. But when it comes to customer side..i think one should buy low priced product only when he or she has heard of success stories from near ones..or if he or she has more money to spend..
