This industry and consumers will be better off without them. I agree. Bringing unreliable products to the market while at the same time undermining legitimate competitive advantage in a variety of ways only hurt companies selling and providing reliable, quality products and customer service. In the long run, a business run such as they were is not only bad for consumers but for legitimate, hard working companies that are trying to remain competitive or in cases with small independent companies trying to enter the market.
Just look at their sales prices. Like the old saying "if it sounds too good to be true"....the sales prices where not indicative in how legitimate companies gain cost advantages over time like through technology, advertising, specialized labor/manufacturing or economies of scale in production etc as a few examples.
