I’ve always thought of the SONY name being associated with quality. I don’t any more. I bought a Sony dvd burner in June of 2003, it went out in April of 2004, and I received a replacement in May. It has gone out again. guess what? warranty is only one year, so I have a piece of shit junk drive. If I had burned a couple hundred DVDs, I wouldn’t be too upset, but I’ve made 50 DVDs at most.
I contacted tech support, and get the standard response “sorry, warranty expired crap.” I asked about a trade-in, some kind of credit…Nope. Buy a new one.
Sony will NEVER get my business again, and I’m going to let everyone know what kind of crap they produce now.
