    Default China Clone or The Real Deal PV?

    Let's see if I can get this poll working.

    Do you prefer a China Clone or The Real Deal?

    Do you own a China Clone or Authentic Brand PV?


    Share what you have and why you like or dislike it.

    This poll was inspired by the threads on if cloning is unethical and I was curious how many ECF members actually prefer a more inexpensive clone over the highly priced original PV/APV.

    I was thinking about why would someone prefer a clone or original PV.

    Generally speaking but with exceptions of course, clone's offer a low cost advantage and high availability while original PV's are higher quality and comes with a higher price tag along with low availability.

    A clone would be something that looks similar or a close duplicate like the popular Pinoy mods.

    I really don't want to get into a debate over personal and business ethics because it will most likely close this poll/thread. I'm just interested in seeing the poll numbers speak for themselves.

    Only post what you like or dislike if you already own that device.

    The poll numbers show 62% have both and 50% only use the real deal....but let's see if more people will take the poll.

    I prefer, "the real deal". In the end it is way better than the other way around.

    I definitely prefer the real deal over a clone of anything. Clones are obviously way cheaper and easier to attain but in my experience the quality just isn't there. Clones are a cheap way to really find what you like in a mod. Then once you know, support the original modder

    I prefer the original, but as my financial situation is still unresolved, I am grateful we have the choice to save money and still buy nice mods.

    I agree. If money is a serious factor better the clone than nothing.

    I'm happy as long as the device does what it promises to do with consistency and over a reasonable period of time.
