friends nowadays you can easily see chinese products gaining their share over a large part of the product just beacause of their more features in less cost and these are not classified over a singel product but almost all products like mobiles clothes electronics and a whole range of products although their products have no warranty or guarantee so what do you have to say about this in short chinese dragon is taking control over all of the market!!

According to my view and my experience, i will use regular branded products rather than cheap chinese products. Because those products are not standard and are not reliable to use and they were not having any warranty but branded regular products are reliable and standard one and also having warranty.

I will not buy anything that came from China. It's too dangerous because they have absolutely no quality control.

yes i use branded phones....because they give warranty....but chinese products provide no guarantee....that is the ONE AND ONLY GREATEST DISADVANTAGE OF CHINESE PROCUCTS....if they provide warranty they could dominate in the market....

I agree with you that chinese products having variety of features and being cheap, dominate the world market.I do at times use chinese articles especially electronic ones and some consumable items and find these nothing inferior to branded ones,which demand higher charges. I do gratly love to eat chinese foods.

The only thing Chinese I look to buy are food items. Those people have a variety of tasty food items that can be of good quality especially when you are doing your own cooking. Other than that I am extremely wary of their products. Many of them are not good quality and can sometimes be dangerous with the substitutes they use. So, I avoid them.

I wonder what kind of product you'v bought that has no warranty or guarantee. The Chinese products are cheap,that's right. It is the result of the rich resource of labor power. But it has nothing to do with the quality. Cheap things are not good? Is it absolutely? I think people are arbitrary on this point. Just like many friends said, If you are rich ,you have enough money to buy products with name brand, you could do it! Aren't there problems with those goods? Are they perfect? It is just a question of probability. There is another problem. Discrimination against China still exsits in many countries especially in the western. There are many misunderstands due to the unequal reports of media. Maybe you've found one of the Chinese products with poor quality, you will determinae that all of them are the same ,because that is from China. But I think the idea and opinion will change step by step with the development of our country. Chinese Products are very good!

If I had a choice, I'd still pick something which has warranty. Normally I'd save a bit more & buy something which is a bit more expensive but would last me longer. In the long run, it would cheaper actually

I am surprised by the perception of Chinese products being somehow inferior. Once upon a time, like back in the 1970s, Made in China or Made in Japan, was considered to mean products of inferior quality but not today. Very few products are now manufactured in the USA because it's cheaper to manufacture overseas and the quality is equal. Usually when buying products, I prefer to do research as to the products capabilities, warranties, complaints etc. Not so much where were they built.

I like to use products made in the USA and try to purchase them also. Like tools and things to that nature, they tend to last longer and i think it will help give the economy a boost. But it is hard to find electronics made in the usa.

It actually depends. I use both products. Well, if I need to use something for a short time only, I would buy Chinese products. But if I want to use something for a longer period of time, I would prefer the branded ones.

I never go for any product just because they are cheaper. I have heard that chinese products have more features just like the other branded products. But the biggest question that falls before me would be: "What about quality"..I have read many incidents about ill effects of poor quality products. So I always stay from low quality products. There is nothing in cutting the cost of the product and then spending in hospitals or any other good product. Also since there is no guaranty,no warranty I never trust Chines products. But if the product is of good quality I may give a try.

Well they are cheap but the quality of most of the products are so poor. I think it is wiser to buy the branded ones because they are of good quality.

Yea, now a days people go for cheap products. Of course many would love to have their brand products but due to crisis, they just buy china products because it looks good some of it. There are some china products that are also good and a little bit durable depending upon how you take care of it. Yes, I would say, China products are everywhere around the world. Even in US, china products are dominant in the market.

I will use the products which low price and the quality still good. I wouldn't matter where is the product from or whether it's branded products

Actually most of the products are made in China. And they are not cheap. For example the IPOD, I read on the back that they are made in China. My computer, which cost me a bundle is made in CHina. (though I ordered it from Dell) My HP computer also made in China. Even most of the Bluetooth are made in China. They may be designed and created by someone in USA or other nations but they are produced in mass quantity in china and imported into the USA. Hence if we all decided not to buy these products, then what do we do? Buy USA made only, but where are they and I cannot afford it anyways. Even the highest end dinnerware sets, are "made in CHina". I agree everywhere you look it is Made in China, but should the USA and other nations realize that and ask themselves why they cannot produced the same product domestically? If the laborers would settle for such cheap pay like the chinese factories, then how do you pay the high cost of living If The salary are not reduce and the products are still made in the USA (for example) then each product will cost 4x more. Now who can afford a cell phone, TV or even a calculator? They are made in China that is because the supply and demand are great and everybody wants to pay less.
