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: 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.
