Summary: Our Sylvania LC320ss8 tv died after just two years. When we try to turn it on, the power light flicks green twice and then goes back to standby mode. We tried replacing the fuse, but the problem is with the power supply. Unfortunately, we did very little research before we purchased this tv, and have since found that there are power issues with many Sylvania lcd tvs. We will never buy a Sylvania product again.
Summary: Do not ever buy sylvania (fujai) products. Their customer service is horrible. I own this tv and just passed the 1 year warranty LAST month and it now does not turn on. I contacted sylvania for help and they gave me a reference number and someone to contact about service... the person they gave me to contact was charging $65 assesments of the problem and $80/hr for labor. I called someone NOT reffered by this company and they are charging $20/hr plus the cost of parts.
Summary: This TV is very underrated, I've had it for a few months now and I must say, everything about it is awesome. It has tons of inputs on the back, 2 HDMIs, 2 Video, 2 Components, and a VGA in for your PC! The VGA on the back is my favorite, I hook my laptop up to it and use it like a massive monitor. The stock speakers are decent, but I use a Frankenstein system made up of 7 speakers and a sub. Picture Quality is awesome, COD and GH:WT look great on HDMI and 720p.
Worst Customer Service I've ever experienced - stay away from FUNAI

Summary: TV died 38 days after purchase. Called Sylvania (which is now FUNAI) and they recommended a local service center. The LCD PANEL needed replacing, but the part was discontinued. I called FUNAI to find out what to do, and they wanted ME to go back to the service center to get the TV to bring to another service center. I asked what good that would do if the part was discontinued, they had no reply, just said "It's just the way we do it".
Summary: Overall the LD320SS8 seems a great product. I have not yet done anything exotic--but thus far I am extremely hppy with the picture and the set. However I had occasion to call Sylvania (Funai) tech support to confirm how to wall mount the TV and to remove the stand. That is another story told below: Imagine my surprise when the very nice voiced lady told me they will not support wall mounting and will not provide any information on it.
Summary: My first HDTV and I love it. I have it in my living room and the size is just right. The HD broadcasts are amazing. The first thing I watched was Planet earth and I was afraid that the rushing water was going to spill over onto the floor. It makes it like you are there. It is reasonably priced and I got the extended warranty which I never do but I did my research and learned about when an LCD pixil goes out how costly it can be. I called Sylvania and talked about it.
Summary: I bought one a week ago. Delighted with if in all particulars except when using analog sources and input cables the picture is excessively grainey, and as someone else mentioned, my Satellite DirecTV/TIVO remote has no code to control power and volume. I just bought a DVD Recorder with an HDMI upconvert feature, and patched my DirecTV signal thru it, so I could use HDMI from the recorder to the TV.
Summary: I was a little hesitant to buy a brand that isn't advertised heavily, but am completely happy with this terrific TV, especially at the price. Great picture quality, very good sound without add'l speakers, easy on-screen controls, the best designed remote control I have ever seen, lots of expansion features for HDTV and computer connections. The only down side is DirecTV doesn't have a remote code that works with it, so I use 2 remotes. Love the energy saving feature.
