Just because you don't have to ship something by boat does it mean it's better. It's about the people, the iniltilligent people overseeing actually doing their jobs, and a Corp office of C Suite execs who want their brand name to mean something from a quality perspective.
Many companies including Sony used to be highly regarded in this way. Now Sony to me is on the same level of Vizio or perhaps lower because Vizio would probably give better service.
Call a company like apple who has stuff all done in China (who has their own labor problems), but Apple wants to make their working conditions humane and has pushed for their wages to be increased.
Point is, you can charge a premium, take care of your workers, and deliver a great product without mucking it up. Take note Sony.
If Apple ever gets I to the tv business, could be rough seas.
