Vizio 55 tv purchased at Costco @ 5/26/2010 for $1,926 - a rip off.
Hardly use it, set up at basement. One month ago, red stripes appeared all over the screen, on and off. Finally decided to contact VIZIO today. Tech asked me to upload pictures, so I did. After asking if this was a frequent issue, tech replies was "un-common". However, found many complaints on this website related to 55" TVs. Need to wait 24 to 48 hours for response, otherwise I will call back.
The tech offered a one flat fee repair of $275 on-site, but no guarantee that it can be fixed…what a waste of time and money.
I will never buy a VISIO TV again. Samsung & Sony are better choices.
BOTTOM LINE - STAY AWAY FROM VIZIO, UNLES YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY...
