The Chinese build some very good stuff, many of the big brand names
produce their equipments in China. Cheap Chinese products that have
flooded India are poor quality. CFL lamps fail from a few hours to a
few weeks. Small halogen lamps are very cheap 0.40$, they last for
about 15 days.

My Chinese heaters packed up in few months, the old Rena's are going
strong after 10+ years. My Eheims are going strong after more than
10 years, the cheap ones I buy for my fry tanks pack up real quick!

You get what you pay for.
