It has sustainable supplying chain in China, and all the components of the screen are copy quality. Typically, the LCD screen is from several different factories, the most popular 4 on China market are AUO, Tianma, LongTeng, and ShenChao. By comparing the brightness and sharpness of the LCD, we found AUO is the best quality among them and the second best is TianMa. No doubt, the other components on the screen are all copy.
