I guess you don't like paying 4 times as much for that "solid Electrical engineering". Good engineering isn't about throwing money at a product, it's more about designing it to do it's job without overkill and waste.Not entirely. Every time I've seen a tear down of a Apple charger or cable, I've always been impressed with the parts list. They're using capacitors and resistors with low deviation values, from good companies, and the circuit layouts are clean and thoughtful.
I don't have any Apple products, I have no interest in buying any Apple products, but I do respect solid electrical engineering when I see it.
No, I don't like over-paying. Which is why I buy other well-design products from other companies. Sticking to chargers, Anker is another company that doesn't skimp on design, components, or QC & QA. They are hardly the 'bargain basement' chargers that are the target of this article, but are still much cheaper than Apple.I guess you don't like paying 4 times as much for that "solid Electrical engineering".

I think the bigger problem for Amazon is that it comingles inventory. If a company sells a product that it says is a real apple product and looks like it then Amazon groups it all together with the real product. No such thing exists on ebay.
In case you haven't noticed, so does Newegg. They do announce it in the review header sic: "Related Product". It's particularly prevalent, (and possibly limited to), the hard and solid state drive sections.However, they don't commingle brands, or even lines, from the same manufacturer, a least I've never seen it.Amazon also commingles user reviews/ratings for completely different products in the same/similar product line. A lot of Amazon policies make zero sense.
