Fitch Cuts Sony, Panasonic Credit Rating to Junk

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-11-22/sony-panasonic-credit-rating-cut-to-speculative-grade

Doesn't look good for those who recently bought a Sony or Panasonic TV.

I'm sure I wont buy a Sony or Panasonic TV because both Sony and Panasonic and scaling back on their TV business and this means less quality and more faulty TV's.

My Sony tv is just garbage. They obviously put a cpu and gpu from the last century in it because it's so slow. With simple animations such as bubbles it achieves whopping 2 fps.

 

The Panasonic Elugia also looks like garbage. It was first sold for 450$ and now they are on the market for 200$.

Sony has gone down the drain when it comes to quality. I don't know what happened really.

How Sony Is Turning into a Ghost in Japan and Around the World

For some people in Japan, Sony is already dead. The only question they have is how did Sony die, or who killed it, and how long will the spectre of Sony remain haunting Japan. It's a pessimistic view of the company but it's one reality in this island country.

RIP Sony.

When did sony ever make good products? the 90's lol
The last 12 years from sony were painful at best, Their audio equipment is a joke. Their TV's are mediocre, picture quality on them cant touch what samsung does. The PC's they make are flimsy and over priced, they can't even make a decent phone. Hell even their playstation platform is mediocre. PSN is a lackluster, the PS3 has been the worst console this generation. Maybe if sony would update the interface with one that it more modern and actually spend more time improving what the console can do, cinavia kills it as a meida hub. Sony is Sony's problem, the company needs to gut every product and start fresh. Vita is a dying handheld, PSN is no where near as profitable as xbox live. They make OK TV's and their audio devices suck. No wonder Sony is having problems rolleyes.gif

I would rather see sony collapse and get sold off to Samsung IMO
The last sony product I bought was my PS3, never again.

True.

The last Sony TV I owned was in 2001 and it was the worst TV I've ever owned. Picture quality was rubbish and it had flimsy build quality.

My current TV's are a Samsung Plasma and LG LCD LED. My Samsung Plasma is the best for night entertainment, such as movies, football and gaming with my friends. Seriously, Samsung Plasma's are awesome.

Wasn't there a huge data leak from Sony's Playstation Network (PSN) which revealed private information including credit card information to hackers?

These kinds of mistakes are inexcusable. Sony has shown that they don't care about customers and they have the worst customer service.

Panasonic's customer service is even worse. They don't have any. The funny thing is, it took over a month to replace a faulty part in my old Panasonic plasma. Unacceptable.

Also Panasonic lied about their plasma TV's capability to do Full HD 3D. They can't.

However, Samsung’s plasma-based 3DTVs draw a full resolution 1080p HD image (Panasonic’s don’t, despite being marketed as “Full HD 3D”). Gradation quality is also significantly decreased in the 3D mode, but overall we found the image pleasing thanks to the full resolution.

Looks like Panasonic are liars trying to trick potential customers.
