It seems like every tv I look at and consider purchasing has about 20 people or more on here saying that it has serious issues. Just curious how many of you have no problems whatsoever with your tv and what brand/model it is.
I haven't had any problem with my 32" Sharp GP1U purchased almost a year ago. And there's a huge thread describing various problems that I should be experiencing with this set. I've even had forum members telling me that I am experiencing these problems--I'm just not aware of them (having spent several years in the display industry, I think I would know). While this forum certainly contains a lot of useful information, you can't take everything at face value.
You have to remember that a good size number of forums posters are AV freaks of nature. If it isn't perfect and a fault no matter how trivial it is, is found, what a POS and if you ask a normal person to make a opinion on it, they'd say WTF are you seeing/hearing etc. look or sound fine to me!
Bought my son a Dell LCD HDTV for his 18th B-day...The only issue was with the inverter board went out which is the weak link in the design...$80 for new part shipped...an hour of my time...and is better than new and no issues since...I would not hesitate purchasing another LCD...
Very, very, very happy with both my Toshiba 51HX93 and Toshiba 46RF350U. HX93 is a CRT and the RF350U is an LCD. 2 people I work with both have a Philips LCD for 2 years and counting with no issues and very happy with the picture.
Correction: One of those folks has a Sharp Aquos not a Philips and they are happy with their purchase.
