I have heard and from casual observation (or perhaps from confirmation biases) that when they test electronics for quality at the factory the ones with high pass go to the first world, North America and Western Europe, South America and similar countries get the middle quality goods and Asia gets the goods that just pass the quality inspection.
This may be the case or Asian markets simply get the products that are overall poorly made and low quality, hence the low prices, or they may get the products that just pass inspection???
Add in the general attitude here that if I can scam you it is your fault for being so gullible and you get poor quality goods that break down then are brought back to the store, exchanged for a few peso's that don't go into the till and the broken product ends up back in the box on the shelf.
