Summary: Purchased the Vizio SV370XVT through Dell in October 2009 for $749 plus $49 for an extended warranty. Lasted just long enough to get past all the warranties. Same symptoms as stated in other reviews - lines at the top of the screen and freezes, then just a few days ago lost the signal completely.
Summary: Was watching a movie the other night when my Vizio SV370XVT went dead. Even the normally lit up Vizio logo at the bottom of the frame went out. It was so dead I thought it must be the power supply, so I took the back off the unit and found the big power supply circuit board. It had a 4 amp fuse soldered onto the board which I checked with a meter and found had blown. I tried patching in a similar size fuse with alligator clips, and it blew when I applied power.
Summary: I purchased the SV370XVT Vizio tv about 3 years ago and within the last 6 months or so, it has started to develop these lines and freezing screens at "warm-up". After about 5-10 minutes of turning the tv on (it seems to be getting longer), the tv works fine. I first contacted ATT Uverse, hoping that it was the signal causing the "warm-up" distortion...it wasn't...it was the Vizio. Contacted Vizio, no help, "never heard of this problem", etc.
Summary: Bought this TV 2 years ago. Picture was nice, seemed to work well. Here I am, 2 years later and I get horizontal flickering lines at the top of my screen after it turns on. Tech support is a joke. First thing they ask is how old is the TV, and once you respond its over a year, they ask if you got the "extended warranty". Ya, right, great tech support. Wasted $650 on this hulking piece of junk. I basically rented this TV for $325 a year.
Summary: I have another Vizio so I didn't have any qualms in buying this one 2 years ago. It was for the kitchen. We wall mounted it and it looked and worked great, except for the fact that when we switched to HD channels from non HD, the sound went out until we restarted the tv. We never did find out if it was a cable issue or the tv. It really doesn't matter now. It just died. I think we are going to get a Samsung now.
Summary: Received the VIZIO SV370XVT - 37" Widescreen 1080p LCD HDTV - 120Hz - 50,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio - 5ms Response Time a few days ago just in time to get it mounted on my Sister-in-Law's Bedroom wall for her birthday! She Loves it! I was a little worried about buying a "Customer Return", but the Vendors reviews were good. The TV arrived well packaged and in excellent (New) shape.
Summary: I liked this TV quite well up until today when the picture died. After 2 years. A TV that only lasts 2 years is junk. Kind of like buying a nice car that you really enjoyed until the engine and transmission had to be replaced after 2 years. So any of the nice things I would have to say about this TV are null and void at this point. I won't buy another Vizio product of any kind. Update: It was actually 1-1/2 years, not two.
