Does Anything you Buy in Thailand Actually Last?

So why is it a secret? Lazada won't sell fakes intentionally. If you report you've received a fake they take that seller off their list, so I think you're telling porkies.

Is Nike the only product Lazada sells? Have a look at G Shock watches, they advertise some at less than a quarter of the selling price, no mention of being a fake or copy, and if you contact the seller they will tell you they are genuine when they are clearly not. Show me on Lazadas site where it says copy. Pretty obvious when an item sells at a ridiculous price that it's not genuine, but some people need it spelled out for them.

Small electrical items are a bummer unless made in US/Europe etc (almost never found) or a Japanese brand made in Thailand. The Japs are the only ones who know how to control and manage Thai production lines and Thai factory workers IMO - they have been at it for decades and insist on running the floor. Same with some other SE Asian countries like Malaysia if under Japanese brand control.

 

Used to think that Koreans were the same but my Samsung fridge of 10 years just gave out and I spent 2,000 baht on ultimately wasted call-outs to try to get it renovated.

 

PS - does anyone know where and what I can buy as an electrical extension that still has all sockets working and no crackling or blow outs after 3 years. I have to import mine from the UK and use converter plugs to get something lasting and non-dangerous. Have tried paying more at places like Robinson but they are still cr@p.

They have this one for 890 baht, but I can't see anywhere it says it's a copy, perhaps alan grice can point out where it says fake? I'd hate for anyone to buy it thinking they are getting the real thing.😉
