The average price range is firmly settled Europeans. This German brand Edelform, Wasserfalle, Westerhof, Czech Luxus and Riho, Finnish Oras, Ido, Nimo, Master Finn, as well as Italian Primo, Valencia. They offer high-quality cabin and with extensive additional features. Naturally, the more different supplements, the higher the price tag rises.

Do not buy a cabin at low cost to European producers. Usually it's just Chinese fakes.
TIMO cabin under the brand name - although stated that the Finns are available, but in fact made by the Chinese.
In principle, TIMO good quality for its price tag, but what to enter in the buyer's delusion? And on the quality guarantee support is better not to hope.

If you are constrained in the media, and can be in the range of Chinese manufacturers to find a good option. Most importantly, responsible approach to the issue of purchase. Examine the packaging, pay attention to the quality of the material, ask about the warranty.
By the way, should be treated carefully and to domestic producers. It is better to play it safe and buy the products of joint production with the Europeans.
