This is because their quality , process standards all has been pushed constantly due to killer competetion on a global scale....They are also leading in innovation not just manufacturing.

China , Korea pretty much my second home...i am talking real world reading bs magazines , news media...which is biased. Its sheer ignorance if someone can draw conclusions of product quality based on origin of manufacture. Its a different world ...try living in USA with just US made products...good luck!
I think some lady actually wrote a book about trying to live free of "made in China" products for a year or something. She concluded that while possible, that's all it is, possible. Life without China is nowhere near convenience, cost of living will go up and countless hours will be spent trying to locate substitutes for commonly available "made in China" goods. Just thought that was interesting.
