i guess real thing will worth more. i do not buy fake things. for me, i guess it's just no use. :)
For me, the real thing is more valuable. An example of this is, recently, my grandmother gave my sister and I identical simple necklaces. Just a very thin silver chain with a rectangular bead of red jade. She explained the significance to us and I fell in love with the necklace instantly. Apparently, my great grandmother's favorite necklace was a long string of rectangular beads of red jade. My grandmother just found the necklace and took it apart, giving each of her girl grandchildren a piece of jade from her own mothers necklace on a silver chain. My great grandmother died right after I was born and she never met any of her other great grandchildren so the necklace was truly special to me. So in this situation, the real necklace with real significance was worth more to me.
Thinking about this economically, if you use your own money to buy yourself a thing, but then it is too expensive to get, you may end up accept the fake but looks real one. But this is thing for yourself. I always prefer the real things, but if my budget cant afford it then i will reconsider. However if i buy someone a gift i would definitely get the real things for them because it will be more valuable and respectful. And i think others feel the same way
The fake is of far greater value. In its deliberate attempt to be real,it's more real than the real thing.
I would buy the real things. But it all depend on the things i'm buying. If you were talking to me to buy a fake iphone then no... but i think a indistinguishable fake LV bag wouldn't hurt that much h
Something authenitic is more valuable. Maybe sometime it could be less attractive than the fake one, but the vale is that because it can hold it longer and better. For example, in today's cosmetic surgeries, they may give you a short-term of beautiful appearance, but most of them won't last in a long run.
I don't care much about labels and brands. I buy things based on value and functionality.

^_^ most of you ignored the indistinguishable part......
