Actually I'm of the other train of thought - country of manufacture plays a great role of whether I perceive the item to be worth the asking price compared to its competition.

Although 90% of the time you may not directly notice a difference due purely to country of manufacture, there will inevitably be differences in QC and inherently sample to sample variation. eg from the automotive industry: BMW X5, US made have far inferior build quality compared to German made models (sorry to knock all you American readers, I don't mean to offend), Thailand made Honda Accords, etc.
