    So for now you have your choice of China junk, or more China junk. That's what's out there to be had.
    I'm runing Untangle on Qotom 24/7 third year now. I wouldn's say it's junk.

    Luck is not an indicator of quality.

    Sadly, due to the above market dynamics ruling the day they are also getting out of the tiny appliance market. Too flooded with junk, and people buying based purely on price and not caring.

    I have had 1 Lanner device fail in 15 years... and I don't mean DOA, I mean it DIED in that time span. And the unit in question was at PA State DURING THE RIOTS a few year back. Some yokel used it as a projectile... the thing still lived two years before it fried.

    No bloody China junk will EVER duplicate that performance.

    That hasn't existed in my lifetime. The best I had was German or Taiwanese. Though with Biden's new semi-conductor investment plan going into action we might actually see US based fabs online in 20 years.

    Equipment from China is not junk. The offerings from China have a wide range to serve the spectrum of some customers wanting cheap as possible to all features with robust components. You generally get what you pay for.

    If and only if the person you're buying from likes you. Otherwise you get their B product, they take your money and vanish.
