No More Sony For Me!

Well that’s it, the final straw. Lik-Sang have been shut down by Sony, what a bunch of tossers (Sony that is!). I never even used them personally, but I know a lot of people that did, including (as pointed out by Lik-Sang’s announcement) a few that work or worked at Sony. How’s that for hypocrisy?

In the past year I’ve probably spent over £3k on Sony products, I sit here writing this on a Sony laptop with a Sony phone next to me and a Sony camera and PSP in my pocket. I’ve even got a brand new Sony w850i arriving in a day or two. But no more, fuck ‘em, if I can send the phone back I will, and from here on in I’ll be actively avoiding buying any Sony products. Ever.

For a long time Sony’s level of customer contempt has been pretty obvious, but this has tipped the boat into actually directly putting people out of business simply to make a few more dollars. Quite simply (if it’s not immediately obvious) Sony aren’t doing this for any customer relations reasons, they are doing this simply to prevent someone else making a fair and legal profit in a gap left by their stupidity, incompetence and greed. If you can’t beat ‘em, sue ‘em. Makes me sick, and they have just lost a customer. I invite you to join me.

    Same here, (well minus the PSP). Most of my electronic devices are sony cause I like their product design and I’m about to order a new 40 inch LCD flat TV screen. But after this I might reconsider :-(. LG and Samsung sell great LCD products too! I went through a bit of a hell with Apple customer service and have stopped buying their products! The lawsuit against Lik-Sang is a f-ing disgrace!

    Sony products are actually of good quality and we travellers use it a lot because they are dependable.

    Pity that the company has gotten into some bad PR on this case.
