    Hmmm.... I don't suppose the outlook is that great for people that make flat screen tv's for Sony either if the general concensus of opinion on these forums is anything to go by. Lets face it most talk (ans spending) here is for Panasonics and Pioneers at the higher end and Tiny's, LG's, Daewoo etc at the lower end of the market. Where exactly DOES Sony fit in?

    Hello tradesman

    No one forces anyone to buy anything on here!

    I think you'll find Sony are masters of their own undoing - they didn't invest in Plasma in the first place; got in bed with Samsung of late to use Samsung glass in all Sony Displays (that's right you pay Sony's premium price for a Samsung panel) and now it looks like Sony will jump ship to LCD after all as they cant get any of the technologies they have backed to be commercial enough to put into production.

    Best regards

    From a business perspective it doesn't pay to manufacture in the UK(Wales), when you can do it in China or East Europe for 1/10th the cost. Just outsource and put your badge on it. Lets concentrate on the ral makers for our products.

    Hello all

    marm - oddly enough Pioneer 'assemble' the XDE TV's in Wales!!!

    tradesman - oh I've heard it before :)

    As a supplier you do have to look at the whole package being offered by the manufacturers (or with many products in the UK their distributors) when choosing what to supply and what not to supply.

    There are some 'excellent' products that have little or no dealer/end user backup in the UK that would be nice to have on our 'stuff we sell list' but the lack of back up precludes us (and others I'm sure) from supporting them.

    Best regards

    Joe
