It should also be called planned mortality. $29 Apex DVD player or Coby TV/VCR - not much works past the 90 warranty. Makes you wonder if those leaking capacitors from China really was a dumb mistake.

Actually my $28 Apex AD1500 from 2002 still works ok even after I upgraded its firmware! It's my last two Sony products that died. And our beloved AMD chips still work.

I wouldn't worry, I think it's pretty hard to screw up on making a floppy and optical drive, I have a sony 8x optical that is 6 years old now

I think you're ok, too, Z. The two Sonys that messed up for me were a 3 year old 5-CD carosel audio player and my wife's 2 year old under-kitchen-cabinet radio/CD player.

My friend's Sony home theater receiver blew up when he accidentally shorted out a speaker. We replaced all blown fuses but no luck. (Seems like the protection circuit should have done its job here!

For years I used to love Sony and thought it was worth the extra cost but don't know now. But then I have a 12-year old receiver, 2-year old surround sound receiver, old cassette player, two VCRs, TV, walkmans - all Sony and all working great.

my 19 inch sony trinitron just got replaced.
the I.F. section of the receiver had a cold solder joint in it and i was using the set by bypassing the IF section and inputting the signal using the video input which i could get away with because i was using the cable tv service.
and i found a very good tv on sale at christmas time at walmart and i gave the tv set to a neighbors kid for game playing,they love it.

it lasted from april'93 until dec2004,not bad.
