Did you know that the environment and technical equipment of our apartments is quite possible to learn world geography? TVs and stereos in our homes from China, Korea and Japan, washing machines and gas stoves – from Italy Slovakia or Poland, furniture – from Western Europe and Scandinavia. Go into the bathroom – there are also all foreign: Italian tiles, German faucets, sinks Ukrainian And after all this geographical diversity There is a reasonable doubt, know how anyone else in Russia to make a functional, beautiful and high quality furniture, plumbing or appliances? Alas, the domestic products in the minds of Russian consumers play in the best case, but one place – right in front of Chinese consumer goods. But is it always these stereotypes are justified or all of our manufacturers also have something to counter western brands? Let us try to understand this question. Electronics at the Chinese sweet and sour sauce, we can not imagine a comfortable life without such progress, as color tv, washing machine, refrigerator, microwave oven and other useful domestic appliances. But in home appliances and electronics have long "running the show" foreign brands.
For many years the standard of quality products remained Japanese manufacturers – Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Hitachi, etc. The traditional "Japanese quality" has been recognized 1970-80's, when Japan became a major exporter of the most advanced electronics. So that the TVs, stereos, DVD-players and other "smart" devices from the Land of the Rising Sun are still considered by Russians most desirable shopping, even though the high cost.
