Thought about posting this in the Home Theater section of the forum. But I think this is more about manufacturing jobs returning to the US.
And in Michigan no less: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/...81431#47181431
Glad to hear that the US assembled sets are sold out. And I hope sales takes off so US based suppliers takes notice and set up shop.
Never heard of Element Electronics. I checked their site and the specs for their US assembled sets are coming soon. I checked the specs for the rest of their line up. While it's nothing ground breaking e.g. no 3D or internet capable, I would consider their US assembled set as a 2nd or 3rd set.
I hope more companies takes notice.
