    What's people's opinions about DealExtreme and the Chinese produced electronics?

    eg http://www.dealextreme.com/p/1000ma-30w-power-constant-current-source-led-driver-85-265v-55364

    Now lot's of people go on about how cheap chinese stuff is prone to burning your house down and stuff, but is it really that bad? Electronic's components have to be made within a tolerance no matter how cheap it is surely?.. the only thing that might worry me is the tolerance eg, yes it can supply 10 watts but if you do it will overheat and die or worse burn the house down..

    But if i simply stated all cheap Chinese electronic circuits (unless flawed) will work perfectly fine as long as I don't use it to it's max ratings?.. would that be a safe practice / standard?... or is this being overly paranoid as well?... Alternatively I could open it up and look up every component on there to find out if the circuit can actually handle what it claims to?...

    :eek:
