Beautiful Picture, remote failed. Returning TV

K. Wolford, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: Unreliable as heck. Beautiful when it was working but the remote kept not working the TV. I had to constantly turn it on and off to reset the TV. I will go back and spend a little more $$ and get something that will last more than a month.

Worked great for 3 months, then it broke

B. Creswell, Amazon
22 August 2009
  • Summary: Loved the tv and got it at a good price, but then after about 3 months it got into a state where it would work for about 30 mins, then the picture would go black with weird lines all over the place. Need to read more reviews before I buy cheap stuff :( Gonna go get a samsung tonight.

Seems to be a lot of the same problems.

Kevan Doblinger, Amazon
12 August 2009
  • Summary: This pixel problem seems to be more prolific than I thought. The same thing happened to my TV. A couple months with an ok TV and then one night all the black colors somehow went red. Even for the inputs I play games on. Plus, even when it was working, for games at least, it's a bit laggy. All LCD's seem to a bit though. It's just that when I play online games, it REALLY matters and those little fractions of a second make all the difference.

black pixels turn red

Jeff Seldin "bookster", Amazon
9 August 2009
  • Summary: I recently purchased a Vizio 47" hdtv. In less than 2 months all the black areas of the picture turned red. Vizio offered to send a repairman to my home. However, I didn't have time to wait for repairs on a 2 month old set. When I called Vizio tech support they were aware of the problem. What's up with that! Selling a TV with a know defect?

Worst TV Ever

B. R. Oja, Amazon
8 June 2009
  • Summary: Normally I don't pay too much attention to bad reviews. Products normally work, and I'm generally happy, so I was excited when I bought the TV. Two months later, when all the black pixels turned red, the excitement waned. I called the warranty department, and they said the TV was "dead on arrival", and they'd call me in two days to replace the TV. Three days later, they called and offered to repair the TV in three to five business days.

It was an okay tv until it broke

B. ANDERSON, Amazon
5 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought this TV in January. The picture was good, 120hz refresh rate was awesome. However, the picture would get choppy and lag a little bit. It could never show a perfect black, you could always see the backlight on. About a month into owning it the TV broke. It would not show a picture at all, just a black screen white random white lines everywhere. Anyway, from the beginning I wasnt sure how good these Vizios were, I took a chance but it did not work out.

"Made in the USA"

Crystal, Amazon
16 February 2009
  • Summary: Don't be fooled by this "Made in the USA." It is assembled in Mexico. Clearly states it on the box. But, Americans are stupid and they believe everything any schmuck with a badge tells them. :) I'm sure this is a great TV. It's just probably a great TV that wasn't made in the USA.

Vizio SVT

Efrain L. Gonzalez "nolesfan7870", Amazon
9 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the SVT on Jan 6, 2009. By jan 9, the bass on the speaker had blown out and the sound was all distorted. I returned the tv on Jan 31 for a new one and when I got it home there were two boxes one was empty and the other one had all the contents. the empty one did contain plastic bags that the contents would've come in. Obviously this was not a new tv. I plugged it in and about an hour later the house smelled like something was burning.

Great tv until it died!

P. Powell, Amazon
20 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought this tv in jan '09. Yesterday one of the HDMI ports went out. Today it won't even turn on. The word VIZIO lights up and the screen is black. This is one of the same problems many other people have had that also purchased their sets after jan '09. I think they must have changed something in the tv and dropped the price so everybody bought them. It just makes me mad to know that a manufacturer knows something is not right and they still sell their product anyway.

Dont Buy this TV

Elisha Lear, Amazon
20 January 2009
  • Summary: MODEL NUMBER: SV470XVT1A I purchased a Vizio TV for $1, 000 about 18 months ago. The backlight has gone out and we were told by Vizio that this could not be fixed and we had to buy a new TV. They refuse to compensate us in anyway. The TV is going to cost $325 to repair. We will never buy a Vizio again and will tell as many people as we can not to buy one either.
