Summary: BEWARE of Sanyo dp42840 hdtv.....550.00 down the drain. 1st the sound started going haywire and then I lost half of the picture color on just half of the screen. The t.v. was one year old and no warranty left.......S.O.L......
Summary: I bought this TV a few years back on sale, still going strong. HD works great, picture quality is good. The only downside to this product is that it has a large black border around the screen and the poor sound quality. The sound can be fixed by hooking up your own surround sound though.
Summary: Bought a Sanyo LCD TV less than 1 year ago & it kept turning off randomly for no reason. We just dealt with it for awhile, but tonight my husband & I read TONS of reviews about other Sanyo TV's doing the same thing, & worse - turning off & staying off & not working at all! I saw this & read it to my husband who said, "At least we don't have that problem." Minutes later, we did. Our TV just turned off & won't go on anymore.
Summary: I have had this tv for about two months. The price was great, got it on sale. I am not pleased with the picture. I have hd from my cable company that cost's 10.00 per month. The only channels that are worth watching are the hd channels. I have tried adjusting the sharpness/contrast for the channels that are not hd with no success. If I had it to do over I would spend more for a samsung/sony brand.
The Sanyo 42' LCD HDTV is great value for your money!

Excerpt: When I purchased my 42" Sanyo LCD HDTV, I was honestly expecting a subpar television. I'd never owned a Sanyo television, and with the price point being so much lower than comparable TV sizes and resolutions from competitor's brands, I was leery. I couldn't afford the more expensive competition, however, so I decided to take a chance on this model. Man am I ever glad that I did! I love this TV. The picture is crystal clear.
Excerpt: We shopped around for TV's for quite some time before buying and finally found this one. We purchased it almost a year ago and have been very happy with our purchase! We've had absolutely zero problems with it and the 1080p LCD picture quality is fantastic! It's a 42" screen which makes it more fun to watch movies, sports or play video games on. It can be hung on the wall but comes with it's own stand and is actually very light in weight.
Summary: tv lasted about 14 months. sanyo customer service will not answer emails or even return calls. save your money to buy a large trash can so when your year with this set has passed you can throw it away since it is worthless at that time!
