Ok one thing for sure, Timetraveler is really the CEO of Vizi-crap. Listen idiot, I bought my 46" Vizio and it started acting up on my wife while I was out of state for a funeral. When I got home and saw the problem, a hideous black gradient shadow covering the entire screen, I got on the phone with Vizio. I got some pimple faced kid Scott who told me this was a known issue and he could replace the set with a new one under the warranty. The he put me on hold, came back and informed me that my 1-year warranty had expired, YESTERDAY! He went on to say, and I quote... "basically all I can do for you is ... nothing. You have to buy a new TV."
So as far as I am concerned, according to Vizio Quality Standard's every American should have to replace their $1, 479.00 television annually without fuss.
Hey Vizio... EFF YOU!
