Last year it was Kingston 64GB Thumbdrives. Looked like the real thing. Colour coded like the real thing (except the colour code was for the wrong size) but it only had 2GB. The programming made it look like a full 64GB but when you copied over a whole heap of stuff, all you ended up with was the file folder structure and file names. But when you tried to open any of the docs, they wouldn't open as there were no files, but only the names. These made their way to eBay as well, coming out of China/HK. My boss got shafted with 3 of 'em. Gave me one, and after not being able to get it to work, started doing some research and found out about it.

Love it ...the hi tech version of the brick in the VCR box.

On a recent visit to the back and beyond in China i noticed more and more legit Chinese are getting pissed off with these kinda people and the reputation they create for China.
Flip side is look a the build quality of the iphone 4 . As much as i hate all things apple the materials and build of the iPhone 4 is pretty impressive. Proves it can and is being done in mainland china.

yeah exactly
why does the 1.6 gig i7 proceesor cost half as much as the
3.2 version. They are both the same processor from the same production
line.
Its all about quality and quality control
