Well I bought a Samsung first generation 1080DLP that samsung had some issues with , they fixed it at their expense. Then about 6 months ago I had to replace the color wheel, which was about 300 bucks... but I fully expect to get another 5 years out of that TV, and I bought it in 2005 I beleieve. o Im almost up to 10 years on that.
By the way, just got off of chat with Vizio and they basically said, yeah, it needs to be repaired and you are on your own. They gave me two numbers that I can call for service. A joke that a 6 month old tv needs repairs already. Now if my other tv goes as well, I doubt I will veer buy another Vizio. I buy a product, I dont expect less than a year before I need repairs. I was really happy with Vizio with the first replacement, but I should expect the same on the 2nd as well. Im sorry that they are producing ****** products that dont last more than a few months before they have issues. We would NEVER accept this from a car. With places like this, Vizio and all electronics companies should understand that great support will be rewarded with undying loyalty and future purchases from customers. Crappy service will be the DEATH of their brand.
