London (PRWEB UK) 5 March 2013
London’s premier retailer of consumer electronics has this week issued a national call for vigilance as the UK market becomes dangerously flooded with substandard products from around the world. According to Games Gadgets and Gifts, the black-market for electrical goods in Britain is not only thriving, but growing at an alarming rate and to some extent being accepted as inevitable.
Unofficial and unlicensed products manufactured and shipped in from overseas will in about 99% of instances have not been put through highly important safety check, which essentially means that anyone using or coming into contact with such products is at risk of harm. The team at Games Gadgets and Gifts is therefore urging the people of the UK not to be sucked into what appear to be bargain buys within gadget shops if they aren’t entirely sure of the authenticity and thus the safety of their prospective purchases.
A Rife Problem
Industry experts are growing increasingly concerned that the problem of counterfeit, substandard and downright dangerous electronics being sold and traded by gadget shops in the UK is now entirely out of control. They state that a person need only pay a visit to a local market or independent store to see any number of goods and gadgets that have every potential to cause more harm than good to those unfortunate enough to take them home.
The problem for the buyer comes by way of the fact that identifying what is and isn’t the genuine article by looks and immediate inspection alone is nigh-on impossible – standards in terms of aesthetics and deception have never been higher. Of course, those selling such electronic goods on the black-market are not going to openly admit such or advise on it, making it all the more likely that a buyer will be deceived.
Stringent Safety Checks
The UK is one of the strictest nations in the world when it comes to safety checks and regulations attached to each and every electronic device approved for sale on domestic shores. As the world shrinks by the day, the UK is also welcoming millions of products from overseas which can prove to be some of the most desirable and affordable, just as long as they’re able to make the grade in terms of safety and quality checks.
Sadly, millions of products are slipping through the net like never before and making it impossible to know whether or not they’re up to scratch in terms of public safety. As such, Games Gadgets and Gifts argues that it is a case of ruling out any and all such products from the onset by siding only with reputable supplier that takes care of all such considerations on behalf of their buyers.
Realistically speaking, the prices of electronic games and gadgets have never been lower and are tumbling by the year. As such, the savings that can be made by opting for low-grade wares are becoming negligible at best – savings which according to the team as Games Gadgets and Gifts can all too often turn into dangerously costly mistakes.
