    Default Difference in GF diffuser and 3rd parties

    Hi all. After having seen The results of using garyfong's diffuser, I'm very tempted to get it. But the price is too high to afford for me anyway. So I was looking at 3rd party ones. But is there any difference btw them?

    the 3rd party one, you can't call them the 3rd party actually, they just simply rip off other people intellectual property, don't have to pay R&D or loyalty of the design, don't have to do marketing and promotion of the products, that is why they are so cheap.

    that is the different.

    so called 3rd party ones wouldn't differ much from the real deal. its a simple product after all. that is the flaw in GF's business model, i guess.

    Some "3rd parties" LS may turn yellowish after sometime. But you can get a new one if it do.
