      electric goods

      I believe it is worth the hassle, if you are in it for the long haul. Can anyone steer me in the right direction regarding electronic manufacturers that they have had success with, I appreciate it.

      In my suggetion, you can create your own brand. And OEM by a Chinese factory. Most of the factory is good quality. Then you can steer clear of intellect.

      Mostly Chinese items are cheap so people tend to buy them without checking their certification.

      I would recommend to take some time and judge whether the item you are buying is worth the money and whether you are buying the item for long term use or just for a short time span.

      Consumer Electronics is a minefield. Spend a lot of time sourcing to make sure you find a decent supplier. Go directly to the manufacturers.

      I will still recommend using branded items, as they have repair centres available which give lots of benefits to consumers while using those items.

      Electrical goods from China are definitely worth it. Here are a few tips;

      1. Do not buy branded stuff from China because it will be fake.
      2. You need the factory to take back defected goods and replace them.
      3. You need a person here - who will do quality control and if required lab testing.

      Doing business in China is profitable but one must have hawks eye over the entire procedure.

      I've had some nightmares with tablets from China, there was nothing majorly wrong with the goods, more the consumer wanting a class A product for a basement budget price. You also have to turn around the products fast, since they will become outdated or obsolete very quickly. I had a night's restless sleep worrying about these factors and got out of the game pretty quick since you can't really buy branded goods that aren't fake so you are dealing with products that are budget and cheap.
