Not forgetting that Sony have factories in Wales, Honda in Swindon and Nissan in Sunderland (where, I understand, the product is rated better than the Japanese produced versions).

Have you ever heard the expression multinational companies?


I mentioned UK Japanese car manufacturing plants earlier, but you may not have been aware that Sony closed its conventional television manufacturing and assenbling plants in Bridgend and Pencoed some three years ago.

The reason? The sharply rising demand for flat screen TVs.

"Have you ever heard the expression multinational companies?"

I certainly have. Most of them have taken over much of our once thriving engineering and electronic companies.

I see that Miele are now in the upright market. I think I shall go down that route, even though pricey, as their products are very well made and reliable. Just waiting to read the which? report due out this month. click here

the cleaning results of our new dyson are excellent brings the carpet up as new. Not sure how it does this as there is not a strong suction feel to it and still trying to get to grips fitting the attachments in some configurations.

>>"For interest...

I see that Miele are now in the upright market."

For your interest, I pointed out that fact on Page Two of this thread on Wednesday at 22:48..:-)

the first one had problems with a fall in power exchanged it for another that pushed out dust everywhere from the start.

3rd attempt looks like we now have a good one.
