    THat one single unit of a product line has problems, and that Panasonic hasn't yet had a chance to respond?

    There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who fit into one of two mutually exclusive categories, and those who don't.

    •  Remember that the quality of products... (0+ / 0-)

      ...produced by these corporations has gone way down in recent years due to cost-cutting and greed?

        •  Have you bought anything, anywhere lately? (0+ / 0-)

          Shoddy workmanship is everywhere in cheap, Chinese made products. TV's used to last a long time. Now they break in a few years.

          It's corporate cost cutting. That's the reality.

          Sorry I don't have time to look for a mainstream media article to back it up.

            ...all this stuff is cheaper, by any measure, than it was back then.  If you want a DVD player for $19.95, that's what you'll get.

          •  Panasonic's plasma TVs,at least, are well regarded (3+ / 0-)

            as reliable, long-lasting products. So, no, not ALL products are shoddy these days.

            This diary gives no evidence whatsoever that Panasonic has a quality control problem. Indeed, maybe he's buying poor quality replacement bulbs for all we know. At any rate, an N of 1 doesn't make a trend.

            50" 5 year warranty at Costco for $499.  Works flawlessly and is absolutely beautiful.

            I have been hearing this blanket statement of yours:

            Shoddy workmanship is everywhere in cheap, Chinese made products. TV's used to last a long time. Now they break in a few years.
            for as long as I've been alive. (which is a long time). Sometimes it is true and sometimes it's not.

            The point however is this diary doesn't give any evidence of anything except that the diarist didn't attempt to use their warranty, only now contacted Panasonic and has not even given them a chance to respond.  The diarist's process sucks. It is yet to be determined in this instance whether Panasonic sucks or not.
