    It seems like some of the cases company are claiming their cases and accessories to be made in USA, as a consumer, is Made in USA really that important?

    I'm contemplating on creating an accessories company, and love to get feedback on what people think about products made in USA vs made in China vs made in Mexico.

    Feedback please.

    I personally have no preference. I think its more for government tax exemption purposes or something of that sort

    There's this perception that Made in USA = Quality Product, whereas Made in China = Crap. Seems like a lot of companies nowaday are marketing their made in usa goods base on that perception. Ironically, iphone is made in china.

    The USA has a government run by criminals, that rewards friends and shakes down enemies. The made in USA movement represents efforts by companies to befriend the politicians in the hopes they won't come after them.

    Having a 'Made in the USA' stamp on anything, especially a computer, does offer some sort of satisfaction that I can't quite put my finger on. Perhaps we have been so used to buying products that have been in made in China that we get excited to see something made in the USA? Idk, just taking a guess. My new iMac was made in the USA btw.

    As important as you want to make it. Consistent quality is easier to maintain at home.
