In Pictures: 27 of the worst product knockoffs in tech

With so much money to be made selling electronics, many just try to copy what's already successful.

It's inevitable, really. A company comes out with a popular and successful product, and soon there is no shortage of knockoff products saturating that market. Thankfully, the U.S. takes intellectual property seriously, so you won’t see many of the more blatant tech knockoffs over here. But around the world you might be startled to learn some of the lengths companies will go to in an effort to capitalize on popular name-brand products. From iPhones to Kindles to gaming consoles, no piece of technology is safe from those looking to make a quick buck. Here are some of the most obnoxious, silly, and downright horrible tech knockoff products to ever launch.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
