I bought a 47" Vizio LCD TV. It lasted only 4+ years before it died.
The service company Vizio sent me to deemed in "unrepairable"...They also kept part of the repair cost, calling it a "service fee". Now, I have to pay to take the TV to recycling and buy a new TV. I contacted Vizio...They told me this "does not reflect on their product quality"...Seriously, that is what they wrote to me. DO NOT buy a Vizio TV!!!!!
You will get screwed. The product is unreliable and the company does not care about customers after they have your money.
Monetary Loss: $1800.
