No doubt. Panasonic used to be fantastic, but they seem to have moved mostly out of the peripherals market into other consumer products, although I have to say that the Panasonic rice cooker I have is fantastic. And my Panasonic plasma TV is still chugging right along and looking fantastic after 11 years.
But yeah, Anker is also fantastic. So is Logitech really. I think someone upthread hit the nail on the head when they said they’re fantastic at manufacturing and design, but maybe not so great at retailing.
