    The impact on the environment from this "disposable" tv should be criminal. It's disgusting.

    Ugh. Our review of the Trutech TV DVD is a bad one. This TV/DVD was a LAVISH present in our household. At just a year old, purchased from Target, ours died this weekend. Power supply apparently is just kaput, no more, gone, nothing comes on. I don't even have the mental energy to try to go down any "customer satisfaction" road because we all know that road no longer exists. Target won't care. The manufacturer won't care.

    Bad TV. We will never buy electronics at Target again. Paper towels, yeah. Anything I expect to last, no.

    My husband and I bought this tv/dvd combo last year for X-mas for our 2 daughters. All the sudden the dvd discs don't read. At first it would say no disc to brand new ones and now you can hear it spin but it doesn't do any thing blank screen. DO NOT BUY THIS CRAPPY PRODUCT!!!

    I'm having the same problem with it coming up as No Valid Disc for one of my DVDs. I've tried unplugging it in order to reset it because I thought the memory in the player tried to keep loading it on a bad spot on the DVD. It still didn't work for that DVD, but it did for a different one. The audio also went out on mine once. I pressed the Audio button a couple of time on the controller and switch it to 2/3 English or something, and it came back on.

    I too bought an under the cabinet TruTech TV/DVD/Tuner combo from Target. I replaced an old color GE which I have had for 15 years, and it was working fine. I gave it away and am now without a kitchen TV. I remodeled my kitchen and wanted to update the TV and add other media. The set died completely within 2 months after it was installed, although it was purchased over 6 months ago. It never worked evenly. After emails where the manufacturer said to contact them(which were ignored) and phone calls (put on hold for 3o min, but I wouldn't give up) I finally got a rude salesman who instructed me to dismantle it and send it in if the warranty was still in effect. I also learned that TruTech TVs are made by a company in Hong Kong, so good luck getting it repaired or restitution. Keep these comments/complaints going--someone should listen soon and Target should stop selling this product. It is fraudulent.

    Thank you for these comments. I went to Target and stood before all the TV/DVD players. I too was lured by the $379 now $278 price. There was none left on the shelf, so I received a rain check... prices $329.99 (not $379 as stated on the tag) discounted to @278.oo until 12/29/07 only. I took the rain check. I just tore it up after reading all these comments.

    I bought a Tru Tech flat screen television on black Friday, lured by the price and the compact size. Was watching television and it just stopped and screen went blank and tv shut down. Went and got ANOTHER television and the SAME thing happened. Spend a little more, save yourself the trouble. Target's return policy STINKS. I like Target and do shop there, but make darn sure you want to KEEP the item. Review the return policy, it is INSANE.

    DO NOT BUY!! Yes. Outrageously awful product. And not that cheap. From the get-go the DVD player in my Tru Tech sounded like an old motorboat and then after a month would only play DVD's in black and white... so I just watched TV..I also had sound problems with DVD player. I did better with one of those really cheap portable DVD players.

    I brought my TruTech PLV16190 last year on Black Friday and Today December 4,2007 On my T.V. i get a green line going down the side of the screen and even if i was to change the channel it was still there. This is what happens when you buy a cheat product. Dont think the cheaper price is better. You hurt your self in the long run. I reallllllllllllllly hate this T.V. DONT BUY IT!!!!!!!!!

    My husband and I bought a Trutech 19" flat screen TV @ Target about 4 months ago and it just died on us last night. We replaced and old model Zenith that is about 15+ years AND still working. We were watching TV and it was like someone just turned it off on us. tried to see if it was the switch or anything, it wasn't. So needless to stay we have our old Zenith back up.

    While I do agree not to buy this tv or brand EVER! I do not agree about the target issue, we have shopped at Target for many years and this was the first time we have had any trouble with any product. DON'T BUY THIS EVER!!!

    DVD player broke also in 6 months. Don't waste your money!! Brought back to Target and was told to contact the manufacturer. What a waste of time and money. Target should stop selling their equipment.
