Virtuoso Chinese fakes
• Virtuoso Chinese fakes
The skills of the Chinese copy masters without equal. Often the difference between the fake and the original can not be detected at first glance, because the Chinese carefully repeat the appearance of things. But filling - almost always an unpleasant surprise for the buyer, who has decided to save.
Here are a few examples.
Ordered some equipment in China is really cheaper - because it assembles many things, and have the opportunity to purchase goods without customs duties and store markups. That's just such savings often brings to mind the saying "miser pays twice."
Ordering in China the hard disk of 500 GB, you can soon find that it is strange to work. It seems that the computer determines the true available disk space - almost 500 "gigs", large files are written correctly, but when reading system shows only the last 128 MB. An autopsy showed:
... USB flash drive 128 megabytes and several large nuts for weight. Small Chinese miracle!
One of the most frequently counterfeited headphones in the world today are considered Monster Beats. Deceivers at hand, most buyers do not appreciate the sound in the headphones, but only external "coolness."
Therefore, it suffices only to accurately reproduce the external form. The pictures - Monster Beats Solo HD: Right original, left - a fake.
From the most simple differences it may be noted that counterfeiting non-removable cord, it is made of smooth plastic (original - frosted). Also headphones Monster Beats Solo HD is a headset and a copy - only headphones without a microphone and control buttons. But it should be known. Exactly like the fact that these Monster Beats are not sold on the market.
This technique is very popular in Russia. Nobody hides that almost 90% sold on the market registrars are made in China and Taiwan. Usually Russian companies simply buy ready-noname-recorders, put your logo, translate the menu into Russian and dumped on the market. Manufacturers registrars to attract attention to their products, often copied more expensive and high-quality models. As a result, in the stores we see essentially the same model. For example, AdvoCam-FD5 Profi and teXet DVR-603FHD.
and deal immediately, who is "Chinese" and who invented in Russia, is not easy. And especially not at once will understand, who is better to remove, because the characteristics stated in both almost identical!
However, the reality is that in AdvoCam-FD5 Profi set quality glass optics (against plastic in teXet), professional matrix and a powerful processor Ambarella A5S (against obsolete Ambarella A2S60 in teXet). Therefore, the video for "Advokama" obtained clear both day and night. Filmed on teXet, by contrast, looks "zamylennym".
AdvoCam - a brand owned by the Russian company, which has been working in the video market, independently develops all devices and only contract assembly trust the Chinese. teXet, like many umbrella brands, is working on the above scheme: "bought - put your logo - sold". Detailed debriefing on the subject have Habre.

Watch by Armani, Patek Philippe or Calvin Klein for 990 rubles have long been a Russian reality. The shops openly declare that it is a fake, and no trace of embarrassment over the theft of intellectual property on their faces no sellers. But quite another thing when a branded boutiques can afford to trade in consumer goods. And this happens all the time.
For example, these two models Calvin Klein: externally they differ only the location of the inscription Swiss Made. Right - the original left - fake.
But in general before the expensive purchase is not superfluous to see what it looks like a collection on the official website of the brand.
Here a little different story - their cars for the Chinese do not give the European, but completely copy someone else's design. The record for the copies of the plant can be considered Yema Auto. They immediately fired three "pirate" cars: Yema E-SUV (copied from the Infiniti EX), Yema F16 (Audi A4 Avant), Yema T-SUV (Volkswagen Tiguan).
