I stopped buying Sony a decade ago, after repeated personal experience with declining quality.

For general consumer electronics, I now choose Panasonic (Matsushita). I've been pleased with my phone, VCR, and TV. Some of the other Japanese brands are also good.

Samsung has improved to the point where I would choose them over Sony, but I wouldn't extend that to other Korean companies.
