Right, but my point is that the "cheap crap" item is lasting longer than 
the expensive name-brand item, and comes with full service documentation 
and a sane method of ordering spares.  Furthermore, in many cases the 
manufacturers have helpful and knowledgeable techies, even if there is a 
bit of a language barrier.

I don't really see why I should pay extra for a product that's not as 
good, from a company that treats its customers and indeed its dealers 
with what stops just barely short of contempt once it's got their money.
