Companies that use us as beta testers.


My Xbox 360 had the 3 ring of death a few months back and yes Ballmer its "Painful" for us too. When you rush out hardware without any testing we become the beta testers and many of us had to pay out of pocket to fix it. Though my thoughts about Sony aren't much better since the HDTV I have has a major flaw in its design that causes it to discolor after one year. Right after the warranty runs out. While Sony did extend the warranty I can only think Sony rushed this TV out just as Microsoft did with the Xbox 360. Maybe Sony and Microsoft need to stop and think about what quality means. You always got to pay a premium for Sony products but it sure doesn't show.
