Rovin...homeboy here answered half of it



Just to clarify some more, when my JVC was in the repair shop we called a service tech from JVC in the US, when we told him the model #, it did not appear in their database. He told us that it was the knock-off version from Panama. He even explained that JVC US has nothing to do with Panama and has no affiliation with them. He said that they take cheap Chinese generic TV and put a JVC stamp on them. That's why parts are impossible to get for them.

I hope that answers the rest of it.

How much was it? Over the black friday weekend the in store discount was 60% off the listed prices (even if already on discount). Zig Techs and Zig Pulses were $35 and others were between $28 - 34.

Regret not buying any as my luggage coming back was only 38 pounds.

Even some replacement parts are fake. Imagine spending a small fortune on "branded" capacitors and transistors only for them to fail and then you pulling out your hair trying to figure out if something else is wrong with the circuit...:mad:

the counterfeit wave is a global thing. even in the USA, Amazon has a huge problem with counterfeit goods all over their site. don't ever buy from third-party sellers on there even if it is "fulfilled by amazon."

Yeah but with regards to clothes/bag/shoes, plenty times the Chinese knock-off last way longer than the 'authentic'

And when you pose up on instagram with your fake brands, nobody could really tell it fake from the pics (unless the spelling different) so you will still get your 'likes' and 'follows'

I'm sure they are based on international agreements we have signed on too. We are a member of the World Intellectual Property Office and then there's WTO etc.

BoS...one day three representatives showed up to "investigate" two 8-port network switches that were contained in a shipment with the company's goods. Cannot say how they found out about them but they did.

Anyways, they looked at them, asked what they were for and then declared those things should be bought locally.

Called the brokers immediately to find out what this was about and they said don't worry about it, basically they don't know their arse from their elbow.

Never heard from them again...:|
