S'only a Sony
Buying electrical goods in China leaves one with a decision to make. Buy Chinese and expect it to last a few years, or buy foreign (Japanese or Korean, usually), pay more, but expect it to last 10+ years. Jiajia and I splashed out last year on a widescreen, wifi, HD, 3D monster of a TV and went with a western brand. Annoying then to find it having a major problem, requiring an engineer to come out (albeit under warranty) to replace a circuit board. I was most surprised, however, to see just how little electronics there is in a modern TV [see above]. I mean, 80% of the space is empty. We're hoping it will all be fixed before the nanny arrives back from holiday. She enjoys her evening TV while rocking JD to sleep.
[It's a Panasonic, actually, but I couldn't think of a good pun title!]
