I haven't had so much (documented) cheap imported hardware, but my favorite
is from a sound board:

"We make 100% sure that this is caused by a M/B bios bug. Please to update
the bios of the mainboard with the M/B manufacturer."

I was also amused once to see somebody who didn't speak English very well
(nor, it appears, know what SCSI stands for) mark some SCSI controllers with
a sign that said "SCASI."
