I've seen those toilets stateside, at stores mind you, and I only remember so because I recently bought a toilet for a new house. I'm sure they're out there tho, but probably not by Panasonic, it seems we like buying our bathroom hardware from Germans and more European sounding brands (Kohler, Hansgrohe, etc)... Or from American brands (Delta, and the aptly named American Standard). I'm sure there's a clever logistic or psycho-social reason for this, not quite sure I wanna know.

Buy a lot of crap we shouldn't for unknown reasons! If you saw something like that stateside it was almost certainly a Toto. I think they're the only company actively marketing those in the US. They make the best toilets. Period. Can't get them at Home Depot anymore but plumbing supply houses usually carry them.

I don't think anyone was criticizing the global Panasonic brands, just saying they make a lot of generic crap for their home market as well.
