I have read elsewhere on this forum that Vizio is ok until the warranty runs out, then it's next to impossible to get them repaired. Parts are hard to come by for out-of-warranty tv's. Having never owned a Vizio, I can't confirm the validity of that but it might be something you may want to do further research on.

I would also opt for the LG. Also for the parts/quality issues, but also for the ISF calibration options being more user friendly. And, while I am not a 3D user so far LG gives you the passive glasses, much cheaper than some other technology, and picture quality is unsurpassed at most price points.


I auditioned 3 Vizio TVs over the last 18 months in the 42" and 47" sizes and they had very nice picture quality compared to some, but the LG knocked me out with all I can do with it.

Pardon my ignorance but what is wrong with refurbished parts? Refurbs, generally speaking, are inspected more thoroughly than new.

Failure rate is usually higher because there's an inherent flaw that caused it to fail in the first place, regardless of the number of inspections. Besides, after your warranty expires, you're s.o.l. if you need to get it repaired.

I had a 32' Vizio, and it crapped out after 39 months, 3 months after the warranty expired. I never did get it fixed, I got constant hassles from Vizio.
