Prepare for Black Friday, avoid these products!

Verkkokauppa.com (Verkko (Fi) = Net (En), kauppa (Fi) = store (En)) is the biggest electronics retailer in Finland, one of the top 5 in whole Scandinavia. Last year they started to publish lists about the percentage of the individual products they sell needing to be serviced and repaired or replaced within first 6 months.

Here's the Top 20 list, percentage shows how many percent of sold products were repaired or replaced (Product, Type, Service %):

You found that following the link, the second list there which I did not post is about the return percentage, how many products were returned within 7 days which in Finland means you get your money back, no questions asked.

Here's Finnish 101, translating that König 5.8 GHz langaton - värivalvontakamerajärjestelmä:
  1. Langaton = Wireless
  2. Väri = Color
  3. Valvonta = Surveillance
  4. Kamera = Camera
  5. Järjestelmä = System
So all together it is Langaton värivalvontakamerajärjestelmä (a compound, consisting of four words) = Wireless Color Surveillance Camera System.
