As everyone knows, Chinese productions are cheap, but the quality is hard to say.
How do you think buy from China in the bad economic?
Maybe after the Olympic game, the quality will be better than before.

On black Friday, I looked at almost every clothing rack in my local J C Penney's. Ya know what I saw? MADE IN CHINA on almost every sweater, jacket, and pair of pants. I came home with tights MADE IN USA. That's all. Does that answer your question, vivian?

Its not hard to find clothes that aren't made in China. Of course your options are rather limited if you instance of American made products though.

I am tired of made in China crap.

That is how I feel about Chinese products.

I'd rather pay more and buy American. However, its basically too late for that, because we don't make anything anymore.

You can still find a lot of American made products, you just have to look. Despite all the hate towards them, Wal-mart actually sells a lot of American made products. Most often made by their private label brands.

But Chinese products are low quality because the Companies sourcing the work in China aren't requesting high quality products. The Chinese are perfectly able to make good products, but that requires the company spending money on product research etc.

Chinese audiophile equipment is one area that is becoming more impressive each year.

Making waves in hi-fi circles / Chinese manufacturers impress audiophiles with quality products

I compared Lowes (made in China) toolboxes with Craftsman (made in US) at the same price level and the difference in quality was overwhelming. On one hand you get drawers that don't line up right and don't feel right when you open and close them, vs. the other where you get ball bearing sliders and good tolerances between panels. I went Craftsman.

Same thing with sockets... a family member gave me a set that was made in China. While changing out a water pump a couple of weeks ago a socket rounded off and damaged the bolt head along with the tool. A regular wrench would only slip off, and it took a set of sockets for damaged bolts (American made, Craftsman again) to get the things off so I could do the job. It was at that point where I was finally tired of buying things that only sort of work. Now I look where things are made when I buy so I can get something that will last.

Most of product made in China is c.r.a.p. Many companies have begun to reassess their China sourcing strategies because the quality is so poor. I lived their for several years and was always amazed at how they cut corners on production to save a penny. Workers sleeping in the factories, safety hazards everywhere, no regard for environment,truly a frightening place. I think every CEO who outsources their business to China should be required to work in a plant there for 6 months to reinforce his decision making process. And these blowhards claim they are making the world a better place.
