Correct. Sanyo is now owned by Panasonic, but Panasonic continues to allow Sanyo to run its own company. Sanyo designs all of the TVs in-house, with different parts, different picture quality, and different on-screen menus. A Sanyo TV works completely different from Panasonic, despite same ownership. Sanyo TVs tend to be less-bright with lower picture quality, cheaper panel screen made by Chi-Mei, cheaper speaker quality, thinner plastic exterior case, and etc.
Were most of the RCA TVs returned as defective or broken, or people didn't like the picture quality?
