    Yes, you can buy this Taiwaneese piece of garbage from Newegg right now. Or you could just put a blowtorch to your rig and save yourself the cost and trouble of installing the latest piece of sabatoge from Taiwan. Me, I'll just avoid that "Made in Taiwan" sticker, because I know for a fact it means "I'll ruin your machine".

    I would eat my shorts if it did. But since I'd never dare put such a thing in my computer, we'll never know.

    If they're Taiwaneese, they're cheap. Sorry to sound like a bigot, but it's nothing against the people, just their products.

    Part of the problem, slave labor never produces quality. The other part being, poor quality of raw materials (i.e. mineral deposits, metals, etc).

    They can design but not produce. Tiwianese Companies normally locate there Manufacturing Plants in China... therefore they become Chinese... Cause i know of a few companies that Have Main oFFice in Taipei and Manufacturing Plants in China.

    Possibly, but I still try to steer clear of things made in Taiwan, Korea, China or most other Asian countries except Japan. I've just not had a lot of luck with them.

    What does postage have to do with anything? You lost me there. This has to do with inferior craftsmanship and inferior materials. That's about the size of it.

    I can only assume that has to be because of your proximity to those countries and your inability to get products from more reliable sources. Or simply, a lack of experience with various different products. Or a combination of both. Believe me, Taiwaneese products (electronics for the most part) are the least reliable and most poorly made, period.

    i think they aren't the best but how much stuff do u think is not made by the asian population... not very much computer stuff i can tell u that. The only top quality stuff ur going to get isn't motherboard unless they are from US owned and produced companies, and ram manufactures. everything else is cheapy made.

    If you want to believe that, that's fine. But it isn't really true. There are a lot of manufacturers located all over the world. Taiwan is a popular one because the stuff from there is inexpensive and most people don't know any better but it's far from the only choice.

    i am not trying to Put Taiwan out.because i believe they can deevelop. Though what they lack is production. thats why if their head office is in Taipei and their Production Plants are in China, they produce pretty well, not flawless like if they were all americans producing. Then ocasisionally they can do good. take sunbeam for instance.

    Well what I'm talking about hasn't got anything to do with where their offices are based or where they do the assembly, it has to do with the quality of the materials used to make the products and the construction of them in the end. I'm not even comparing them to American made products because we're way behind Japan when it comes to leading edge technology, even Germany is ahead of us I believe. Been that way for a while now. But anything out of Taiwan is at the absolute bottom of the list when it comes to quality of the product and its construction. I'm not even talking about China here. That's a sort of 50/50 proposition, there's good stuff out of there and there's bad. It all depends on who's making it and how they produce it. If it's out of a sweatshop, forget it.
