Sony makes shit products, always have but now people are finally starting to realize it.
Well, if were talking videogaming....
Currently, I think the have the best library and the best hardware IMO. Their reliability thus far has been outstanding as well. I've really been impressed with the PS3 and the PSP.
I have never really been a big fan of their Home Theater stuff (except the PS3, which I consider one of the best Home Theater products ever made) but I do like their TV's. They're just a little on the pricey side vs comparable models.
I think they make pretty decent point-and-shoot cameras (I have a Cybershot myself) but I'd probably go elsewhere if your looking for something more serious.
I don't know. I don't see what the big deal is really. I guess I just haven't been traumatically affected by their "dishonest" practices.
