Not by my experience. I have a certain device from a chinese manufacturer. Once in a while you need a replacement part and most of the time just one in a package of three is good enough to use, but at least that one will last for years. There are cheaper clones of every single part, but the quality is so low that you don't save very much. They do so much damage when they fail. In fact, i have also a complete clone that slowly becomes an original because I only use original parts whenever it needs repairs.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
