Excerpt: We bought this tv happily from Costco, however we really should have read up on the rviews of Vizios 42 inch specifically. MANY people complained about the picture tube going out righ about 30 months and we were no exception. Way too expensive to just stop working that quickly. People do not have that kind of money to waste.
Excerpt: Okay, so, I went out on a limb, and I decided, for the first time, that I would buy a relatively no-name LCD. Well, in my particular case, I would regret the day I decided to cheap out on a couple hundred of dollars. When I first bought this TV, as soon as I got it home, I unboxed it, and I saw 8 dead pixels, which is, of course, completely unacceptable.
Excerpt: I purchased Vizio and was happy for 13 months. Then I started losing audio sporadically. Then I could get no picture, only the Vizio logo when I turned it on. Vizio tech support said probably the main board had gone out, but was no longer covered under warranty. They also said they were having trouble getting parts for this model. I bought the TV from Sam's Club who said their warranty was for only 90 days.
Excerpt: I purchased a 42" Vizio hdtv about 3 months ago and was pretty apprehensive at first, but have been pleasantly surprised with the quality. Vizio is not a well-known name brand, but I am very happy with my purchase at a very reasonable price - - well below the price of all the competitors, but still has the same or better quality than most.
Summary: TV has a very good picture but the motion blare does start to trouble you. It has come to point that I want to take the lost on this one and buy another TV altogether. Not sure why they would make a TV with such a great picture and bad blur issues. This type of problem should be noted in the description of the item I think!!!
Summary: This tv has such an excellent picture and sound quality that it is almost unbelievable! We knew we wanted to purchase a Vizio due to word-of-mouth reviews. We had also sited the quality picture and sound in other people's homes. The price is so reasonable as well. This tv comes highly recommeded!
Summary: Obtained the tv through site to store on 4/10/2010. Set it up and everything worked fine. Next mourning turned on the tv after about 5 minutes the picture froze and audio made a clicking sound, than the screen went to white and black lines. Contacted Vizio, after sending them pictures of the problem a repairman changed out the main, power, and LVDS on 4/30/2010. Tv has worked today, hence "crossing my fingers. Picture and audio is great.
