My friend recently wanted to buy a cheap home projector on Aliexpress. He selected some of the projectors he thought were good and showed it to me. To my surprise, on his list I found some brands that I have never heard of before. This is really weird, as far as I know most of the products sold on Aliexpress come from China. Some of the projector brands he found have almost no popularity in China and how can they sell so well on Aliexpress? Among these brands, the very first brand that caught my attention was the best-selling Aun projector .
Aun projector is definitely one of the best-selling projector brands on Aliexpress. Most of its products targeted at customers who want to buy cheap budget projectors. Their prices usually ranged from $ 80 to $ 200. On Aliexpress, more than 2000 customers ordered Aun projectors every month. But is it really as good as the sellers claimed? And does it deserve the praise it got？Here is my research.
First I try to find clues on Aun’s official store on Aliexpress. This picture is what I found on the product detail page of Aun’s official store. It claim itself to be “a Germany brand made in China”. But is it real?
For more information, I try to find Aun Projector’s official website, So I searched on Google using “Aun projector” as keywords. The only site that looks like Aun Projector’s official website is aun-projector.com. However you can see from this picture, this website is a home website of Himalaya (Hong Kong) Technology Company Limited. I do not know if this Himalaya (Hong Kong) Technology Company Limited is the manufacturer of Aun projector. But I really cannot find any proof that Aun projector is a German brand.
Maybe it is a Chinese brand that lied to be a German brand, after all it was made in China, so what about its sales in China? I tried to find Aun projector brand on China’s largest online shopping platform ,Taobao.com. The results are as follows:
The only Aun brand on Taobao is a well-known socks brand, there is no Aun projector brand on Taobao. Then I changed my keyword as Aun + Projector, and finally I found the only Aun projector product on Taobao.com, however no one in China ever bought it. I also do the same search on Baidu, the largest search engine in China. The result was the same as that on Taobao, all search results were about socks.
In conclusion, Aun projector is not a well-known Chinese brand, and there are no clues to prove that it is a Germany brand. Except on Aliexpress, you basically cannot find any introduction and qualification of this brand online. I don’t know the real quality of this brand, after all, there are a lot of praise of it on Aliexpress. But I really can’t trust this brand as there are few clues to prove it to be a real brand.
You see, there are thousands of sellers on Aliexpress, and there are a lot of brands just like Aun projector, No one knows these brands in China, but they have successfully opened up foreign markets with low prices. But are there any guarantee on their quality? This is a question.
If you want to avoid these brands, here’s one of my tips. Before buying a brand, try searching this brand on Taobao.com. You can see the true monthly sales of this brand on Taobao.com and check whether the brand is really popular in China.
