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.
Summary: This TV Broke almost 3 months after I bought it. The screen went green and I could not see anything on it. The repair man vizio sent to my house told me he had problems with his as soon as he took it out of the box. The TV could not be fixed so vizio sent me a refurbished one.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I just bought this TV getting ready for a superbowl - I will return it tomorrow. The picture is horrible and blurred with any motion. I wish I had read the reviews before picking this thing up and wasting my time.
