I didn't mean to get everybody off on a tangent but I know several people who work for Sony and Toyota and heard horror stories in the past of QC problems with their products made south of the border.
Ex. there were serious issues with the 1st Gen Tacoma and many TVs shipped to the US. --A small sample-size and anecdotal, but they generally steered me away from items shipped from there.
Of course, there are a lot of factors that affect this: engineering, skilled/experienced labor force, assembly conditions, suppliers, political climate, training, management, etc.
I actually blame the executives at those companies for not reigning in the issues affecting the quality of those products because many high end hi-fi gear is now made in China, yet these companies are able to make it work, putting out repeatable product lines, though they are now no longer made in Japan, Canada, or England.
Nevertheless, I hope this lasts me long enough to get me into the OLED game in a few years. I have a feeling this will unfortunately end up in a landfill sooner than it should.
