Cheap Chinese Imports

Main rig down, vintage laptop fall back.

Never, never, NEVER buy cheap (mainly Chinese origin) electronic goods from eBay. They are a false economy with vastly reduced lifespan, when compared to legit products. I can only assume they are cheap clones and/or factory rejects/contain inferior components.

I learned this lesson early on but it has reared it’s ugly head this very instance, in that I was given, & came to rely on 1 x mini USB wireless adaptor. At least I now know which chipset works with both Windows/Linux & have ordered a (kosher) replacement from Amazon UK.

    A massive jingoistic generalisation -i imagine many legit components are made ….guess where….in China

      Yes… Buuuut, the fakes are churned out in legit factories, on the side, often with inferior workmanship. If the price is too good, be concerned.

      Go milk a cow.
