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.
