Your response to our survey shows three brands that are more consistently reliable than others. Miele and Bosch dominate domestic appliances - washing machines and the like. They both stand out as particularly dependable in three out of our six categories. And their appliances aren't just reliable, they're well designed, too - both have several Best Buys to their names.
Sony stands out as the winner in electronic goods such as widescreen TVs and digital cameras. Of the eight electronic product categories, it's one of the most reliable brands in three. It's also among our current Best Buys in four electronics categories.
Of the brands you'd recommend, Miele and Bosch get a big thumbs-up. Miele stands out in all six categories, and Bosch in four. Sony is among the best in every category it's in.

I have ordered a Bosch Logixx SGS 65L28 for £398 delivered
Am quite happy with this once I did some research of my own but I suppose only time will tell!
Thank you for all the advice and general postings - didn't realise it would get such a debate
I wondered this too. My last microwave was a sharp and lasted 12/13 years with a replacement magnatron after about 8 or 9 years. Brought another sharp and the lcd display went after less than 2 and they told me it was £90 to fix - the thing cost just over £100 new!! Been using it as a basic minute by minute microwave without the fancy programs (as I can't see the settings) for another year but it is now completely rusty inside. Will be buying as cheap as possible, probably with a preference for a manual dial - I can now manage without the fancy programs and don't intend to waste money on them. I feel a trip to Tesco coming on!
I've had my hotpoint washing machine for 15 years and my local repairman has replaced the motor and the door (Spent about £30-£50 to get it to last another 4 or 5 years!). His advice was to hang onto it as long as possible as the newer machines only last about 5 years - luckily, he comes with a long list of recommendations and I trust his judgement.
I am suprised that there are not more comments about Neff dishwashers on here. Mine is over 10 years old and still going strong. I have had no problems with it whatsoever and it has never been serviced. I just give it a clean out occasionally with the finish dishwasher cleaner.
I also had no problems with my Neff oven, hob or extractor fan in over 10 years. That was until my husband burnt that side of the kitchen down last month. Just had a new neff oven and hob refitted courtesy of the insurers.
I would also recommend Which, but if you can't get a free trial on line, your local library should hold the full edition of Which.
If you've got a water meter, you might be interested to see how much water the different dishwashers use. Some of the new dishwashers are more efficient than washing up by hand for a full load! So you can have the last laugh at all those green types who say you are killing the planet!
