The dead giveaway are the on/off button & the vol.

At the pace China is keeping up with the cheong market, its a matter of time they do themselves in. There's only so much ppl can take where cheong products and their lifespan are concerned.

And the price is likely to be very low......another giveaway. If it is too good to be true, it is to good to be true........

If fake sell as fake, then maybe not so bad, but fake one try to pass off as real one, that one call counterfeit, quite dangerous. I know there are some counterfeit aircraft spare parts. Imagine you take the plane and the landing gear is cheong one, once hard landing only, liao liao ......

someone got good memory :thumbsup:

Bringing the topic back to photography.. isn't it the same? Many newbies imitate how the pros shoot, try to reproduce their works and start off from there to develop their own style and skills. :bsmilie:

I don't think it's right to say that Japanese consumer products started this way i.e. selling fakes. Post-war Japanese products were synonymous with poor quality and although they did not sell fakes, most of their products were copied and improved on western technology and they were sold under their own brands. I remember sitting in Japanese saloon car (either Toyota or Datsun) in the early 60s and the car sounded more like motorboat.

As the joke goes

The Americans invent something on day 1 and before they can announce to the world their discovery, the Russians would steal it and proudly declare the Soviet Motherland and her sons and daughters had invented it. Then on day 3, the Japanese would announce that they have improved on it.
