I think products from equipmentzone are good stuff, not because of "not Chinese made". and I bet they use some parts are made in China. I had a supplier from CA, USA. They always have problems with my orders.....over charge, old ink, no money refund.....so many problems. Of course, no more business with them. So business are good or not, depending on people, not because they are made in WHERE. I always buy "cheap but good quality" stuff.
