So this Sanyo would look as washed out as the Vizio if you put it next to all those other plasmas at Costco? I'm trying to decide between this, or the Vizio, or an increadibly cheap Sansui 42" HD plasma (Sansui HDPDP4200) at Fry's. Hard to really judge the picture quality of that Sansui also, as it and the other TV's it was sitting next to were getting a poor SD feed.
Sanyo DP42746? (cheap)
Vizio P42HDTV? (cheaper)
Sansui HDPDP4200? (cheapest)
i bought the 42 inch sanyo plasma 14 months ago.I was happy with the whole thing.then ,one month after the warranty expired, it went out.click it back on, 3 seconds, out again.my wife called sanyo, and they were very good.they sent out a local tv service, and said they would pay for the parts, and i pay for the labor.I said good deal. the tech came out for $89 , aand said it would cost aboout $975 to repair.I called sanyo, and they called the tech, and he told him what i need.couple weeks later he said he got 1 board, and he asked for 3.He put the board, and the same thin.3 sseconds, and out.He told me to get the guy on the phone from sanyo.i gave him the phone, and he told him, same thing.he told sanyo that if they would have sent the 3 boards that he asked for, it might have worked.He got the 3 bboards in, and the same thing.I called sanyo, and told him, and he said to tell the tech what he needed, and they would pay for it.in the meantime, i forgot that it worked for 5 days, and the tech chaarged me $295.00.well, now i'm waiting for the 4 boards the tech said he needed,the were out of one board, and waiting for thaaat to come in, and send them out.the tech said his service work is guarnteed for 30 days, so it wooould'nt cost me anything to put the new ones in.whether it works or not, sanyo has been real decent about it!! By the way, samsung makes sanyo, and visio also!
