'Made in China'

When you buy something, and you see the words 'Made in China' written on it, do you instinctively expect it to be sub-standard in quality?
I've personally noticed myself shuddering in disapproval when I see the words recently, and I now even deliberatly look when I buy hard goods over a certain value.

TBH - you will probably find that most of the stuff made in China will soon (if not already!) be of a higher quality than anything made in the UK!

In fact, if you looked into it, you would be very surprised by how much is actually manufactured in China, and then assembled in the UK!

Maybe 5 years ago I would agree, but noy anymore!

I think they have it about right and for the amount of poor quality stuff coming out of there, compared to what China is producing is a percentage of about 0.001%

Also, not very nice to generalise 'China' as a mass producer of inferior products. The items you buy in the pound shop will not last as long as the ones you buy in the high street stores. Also the high street stores give you a guarantee AND have their own 'English' QC people checking the goods produced in China.

An example of trust by one supplier is Snap-on, who give a lift time guarantee on all their products and some of them are made in the States and China, who else do you know that gives a life times guarantee on a product that gets abuse everyday.:thumbsup:

Blame the mass media for their coverage of it. Most people now think that Chinese goods are garbage. 15m Mattel toys recalled tells the story though. Toys for kids as young as three. Toothppaste with Anti-freeze in it. Poisonous pet food. Chinese QC must be sorely lacking, so I think the criticism is fair personally.

No real problem with seeing Made in China on products... Though I must admit I get all giddy when I buy something expensive and it's made in Japan :)
