Summary: This was my first HDTV, and one of the first i had actually seen. I have had it for 5 years and it is almost as good as the day I was gifted it. The picture quality does not compare to a better brand that runs 720p, but you won't notice unless you spend a lot of time around nicer TVs.
Summary: I have had this television since the summer of 2006. Wow! It has been a long time. I purchased this TV at Wally World. This TV was still over $700 with my friend's Wally World employee discount. That tells you how much the price of this TV has dropped over the years. Now you can get this TV for under 300 dollars. I can tell you that my TV still works. It works wonderfully. I would like to get a bigger, more awesome, 40+ inch 120hz television, but I am too cheap to do so.
Summary: this Sanyo TV is like the little engine that could...it is not as popular brand name as LG, Vizio or Sony... this tv was not expected to do what the other giant brand name could do... BUT IT DOES comparatively and much more! I'm surprised, too.
Summary: LISTEN PEOPLE IN SPITE OF SOME GOOD COMMENTS ON THE TV (MOSTLY BY PEOPLE THAT HAVEN'T OWNED THE TV TOO LONG) THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY NEGATIVES THAT OUT WAY THE POSITIVE. FROM THIS WEBSITE AND FROM THESE REVIEWERS. LOOK AT SOME BELOW: 1. REVIEWER ONE, PETER TANGLEY, (WHO OWNED THIS TV 4 MONTHS) GIVES THIS 4 OUT OF 5 STARS ADMITS RIGHT HERE, AND SAYS: "the narrow viewing angle of the set.
Summary: I have had this TV for less than 3 years and the color has gone. It was a good price at the time I thought it was a steal, now I see that they stole my money and left me with a crappy product, and an expired warranty. Well I'm about to go purchase a better brand. Be warned and for all those good reviews, they were lucky, but on a whole this television is garbage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: I purchased this TV at Walmart nearly 3 years ago (circa February 2007) when it was in the high-$500s, which was a good value at the time. It has been in 2 different living rooms and will soon be headed for our den and has never had a problem. The picture quality is good; my only criticism would be that the contrast and brightness are a little lacking when using the HDMI connection, especially with a BluRay player, but I suppose that could be as much the BluRay player's...
Summary: Put it in my beach house. It was not too compatible with my DVD surrond sound system. When playing movies, the picture was always very dark but the cable TV picture was fine. However, I just got a call that the screen has gone blank and the TV needs replacing or repair. It is just over two years old. Smells pretty crappy to me. Considering my old TV is 19 years old and going fine this pretty much says it all.
