It never ceases to amaze me that people will still buy this 'cheap' knock off equipment!
I mean seriously, ask yourself if the clone price
is half that of the OEM product, how do you think they arrived at that pricing point? Using same quality materials? Having the same product backup, warranty, spares?
Yes yes, I know people will say, but the stuff is made in China
anyway. Mostly correct, but with a OEM name behind it, you can sure that you will have product support and spares in 3yrs time. Try that with a clone...
Remember the days when the Russians sold their tractors to the West? Yes, it was always recommended to buy 2, that way at least you had some spares when the original shat itself after 30hrs work.
Just my 2c.
