I disagree. Many products sold under that label have been and are 
rebranded items made by major manufacturers. I have a "Realistic" 
portable SW radio that is actually a Sangean, and "Realistic" 
scanners that are actually made by Uniden/Bearcat and General 
Research of Electronics (GRE). My first digital multimeter came from 
Radio Shack and was a rebranded Sinclair PDM35. I still own all of 
those items, and they all still work, including the VOM which is 
about 30 years old.
