Panasonic Australia is proud to receive the coveted CHOICE Heritage Award for being the most recommended brand in CHOICE tests over the past 50 years.
CHOICE, the independent consumer advocacy group, has named Panasonic as the most consistently recommended brand in its inaugural awards celebrating the best in goods and services.
Based on being the most recommended brand in CHOICE tests over the past 50 years Panasonic received the CHOICE Heritage Award for consistent delivery of quality and performance across a range of household and entertainment products.
The award also marked CHOICE’s 50th anniversary offering consumers independent advice.
CHOICE Award Criteria:
During our 50 years of serving consumers, we’ve confidently recommended many products to our members. The shortlisted companies for this award, Sony, Panasonic and Philips, have earned their place because of the number of products included in our ‘What to Buy’ or ‘Recommended’ lists over the past five decades.
TVs are among our most popular tests, and just one of the home electronics products where our shortlisted companies have been fighting for prime position. When colour arrived in Australia in 1975 we tested the latest massive 63cm colour TVs and all three brands scored well. As the decades progressed, Philips, Panasonic and Sony jockeyed for top brand with Panasonic scoring well in the 21st century with its plasma TVs.
