And for those that think you’re better off paying $1200 for a solid German-made TV or computer, because it’ll last for 40 years… ask yourself if it is wise to use that same smartphone, TV or computer for another 40 years! :lol:

The same goes for every other digital gadget, and for all other appliances in today’s average home.

So thanks to China’s dirt-cheap labor and dirt-cheap office/factory floor-space, we are able to enjoy myriads of products at affordable prices while countries like America have NOTHING to offer the world other than arms!

As a God-fearing family man whose only needs/goals are to have a healthy, happy and prosperous life… what on Earth am I going to do with America’s arms? I’m just not interested so to me China is very useful while America is exactly the opposite… utterly useless and counterproductive!

America’s shit stirring around the planet is nothing but a constant hindrance to trade and relationships between nations, so they are in direct confrontation to the interests of each and every well-meaning family man.

Only a shortsighted fool would want to shoot themselves in the foot by supporting the useless and counterproductive US!


Yeh but the quality is shit.

I just bought a big TV and was tossing between a Samsung and a Sony. In the end, the Sony won.

Sorry, but if you want your $400 TV then good luck to you.

I too have a Sony Bravia TV, and they're mostly made in Slovakia! That’s the biggest Bravia factory. Eastern Europe basically…

Are you trying to tell me that the Slovaks are technologically more advanced than the Chinese?

You idiot... :lol:

many companies just look for the cheapest production costs and take their operations there. The design is from the parent company, manufacturers are just sub contractors.

We had products made in Thailand (I worked for a very well name Japanese company), because it was much cheaper to produce than in the UK, they eventually mover production to Vietnam which was cheaper again, I mean how F cheap can it be, they pay their people pennies.

In another company our clients found it cheaper to ship the parts to china, make it, and ship it back, than it was to have it made in the UK!

China is just one large manufacturing base with no H&S, no EU BS rules, no restrictions, no working hour restrictions etc etc, that's why it is cheaper there. Simples.

And that’s exactly why they’re USEFUL!

God forbid what would happen if all these cheap-labor countries were to change… we’ll have to start getting personal loans just to buy some shitty everyday device!

So there was Paphitis thinking he was enjoying his “western” high-tech TV, only to discover that it’s actually COMMIE-made!

That’s right… made in the former European soviet bloc!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

But they are not a junk Chy-nese TV.

BTW, Sony is Japanese.

Bit like Apple, Microsoft, Ford, Boeing, General Motors are American.

You seem to think I have a problem with Slovakia. On the contrary. I love Slovakia.

Is n't that where Melania Trump was made? I'll buy one of them.

I now have a few questions about your new TV Paphitis, if I may…

1. When left unattended for a few minutes, does the TVs CCCP screen saver kick in?

2. If you look at the manufacturer’s label at the back, does it read “Made in honor of Gagarin” by any chance?

3. How many rubles did it cost you?
