    Went over to a friends today and mentioned that I have been looking at Panasonic Plasma panels and LCD t.v's. Anyway to cut a long story short he said he was buying a 26" Saisho LCD from Dixons for Christmas. He must have seen the look of horror on my face, but said that for £699 he was hardly going to get stung. The upshot was that I admitted to once owning a Saisho portable t.v. many years ago, which went on trouble free year after year after year, thirteen in total. We then got to discussing who Saisho (the company) actually were. I know that it is a name used by Dixons, Currys etc. as is Matsui, but does anyone know who, or where these t.v.'s are manufactured? I am just plain nosey, and a web search has come up with nothing.

    That was my reaction to, however, it looks as though Dixons has decided to revive it, perhaps the name Matsui has got something of a stigma attached to it so they thought they would use Saisho again. Lots of companies do this with product placement. Mind you that does not answer my question "who are they and where do they manufacture"?
