Chinese STAR systems

Hi all,

Can any body advise about the Chinese STAR system available on the internet, are they all cloned and cracked?

Does MB allow any third parties to provide those systems at this lower prices?

thanx for any help

I bought a European clone from a fellow in Florida. Great service, speaks English and has a phone number for help. A phone number that you will never get from an Asian.
I'm on the 140 forum if you want to send me a private message.

A phone number and even an email address is very useful. Even better if this supplier was honest and did not tell his/her tool is made in Europe, unless you qualify mine being European when I have purchased the tool from China and now have it in Europe.

Just a couple of week ago I asked my Chinese supplier if they had anyone in the US that could provide their high quality set to a forum member. One of the names I got was a member here who sells European products...

All Star tools "from the internet" are clones. Genuine tools all come from MB (excluding some passthru tools that aren't exactly the same thing).
