    I really wouldn't bother, You will have so many come backs IMO The quality is just not there, You might do well at 1st, But people will soon catch on that its nothing more than cheap tat.

    agree to a certain extent. most chinese made products are cheap shit, lasts a few weeks rubbish, but its not realy the fault of the chinese. it is down to the buyers/importers who will tell them they want a certain product, for a certain price (usualy the cheapest). these guys can make top quality goods for a lot less than we brits can!

    True, in many cases.

    Just look at the stuff that Apple put out... Except that they don't even have 'cheap' in their favour...

    brand means nothing mate. most products made there are identical and you get nothing better paying for branded items!

    I can only say from experince buying many items from China v uk items made here, The quality is significantly different, But as said this is apparent in the cost.

    agree with that totaly mate! i would buy british everytime but it is realy down to price. the bad reputation chinese made products that are available here are down to tight arsed importers who buy the cheapest for maximum profit. thats the main reason i would never recomend anyone buying the grow tent kits that are for sale everywere. cheapest crap available imoho

    has anyone ever been to manchester to buy fake clothes/trainers? hundreds of sellers hidden all over the place if you know were to look. they all have two grades of designer clothes, cheap shit that fall to bits first time in the wash and good quality stuff that in a lot of cases is better than the real thing!

    I reckon when it comes to buying growing equipment you should buy the best its not worth saving a few quid if it could burn down your house
