But you trust Korean brands... Yeah that makes sense.i don't trust china brands
Why are some people so intolerant of Chinese brands..... If I didn't trust Chinese or Korean made components I wouldn't trust half a large portion of devices that we all own here in my place...
I am not talking about usb chargers & phone chargers. Its a ridiculous attitude to be saying one doesn't trust an OLED TV manufacturer just because they are assembled in China in 2016. That old Made in Hong Kong era is over regarding mainstream AV products & a lot of other elec white products.The difference is quite obviously that the brands we all know and trust largely design the components themselves and have procedures and policies in place for having them manufactured to a consistent, tested standard. In contrast, Chinese companies have a reputation for producing inferior, and some times dangerous, copies.
Well that is stating the obvious TBH at this stage...There is nothing people on this forum would love more than for an affordable and legitimate alternative to LGs expensive OLED TVs.

But how do you know the Changhong OLED is not an affordable & legitimate alternative to korea's LG OLED TVs?
If a few "Chinese" manufactured OLED TVs are reviewed & are classed as dangerous or inferior , then people can start blacklisting them... not before. Hisense haven't had a bad start with their 1st legitimate FALD TV. So I don't see why a Chinese manufactured OLED TV cannot have the same chance.
It's not the fact they are made in China. Lots of high quality products can be made there.
It's the fact you can't just bypass years and billions of ££ that the big companies have spent in developing the technology. The Chinese have learned that with the automotive sector too - they can clone Western cars; they sort of look the same but the quality is rubbish.
Anyone can throw a bunch of components together and make lots of claims but it's the engineering and software that makes these televisions work to their very best. Look at all the bugs and promises for fixing things in the various Hisense posts on here.
On the flip-side, look at Panasonic with their version of the LG panel - same panel but hugely different picture quality as they have the engineering and technology background to deliver. That costs money though.
The thing to remember is most people don't care about the best, they just want cheap. Hence Hisense, Changhong will join the ranks of manufacturers producing cheap products that do the job of being able to watch content on them in a bright living room with everything set to vivid.
