Vizio Complaint - Vizio? No! No! No!
My 32" Vizio was purchased at Sam's Club on 05/30/10. The price was $588. On 06/26/11, a piercingly loud noise started, followed by vertical lines through the picture. The TV shut down before I could unplug it and is now dead. It will not power back on and since it was 27 days past the warranty cut-off, I have no recourse except to have it fixed at my expense. Given the number of owners who relate that after repair their Vizio stopped working again, I am not sure I want to throw more money at this situation. I have owned many TV sets in my life, but this was by far the shortest-lived. This is both frustrating and quite ridiculous...any company whose products have such inherent problems should address them and Vizio is obviously not concerned about their customers or reputation. While checking consumer reviews online for their products, it would seem that Vizio may even be employing people to hype their products and keep the money rolling in...I will never be a Vizio customer again, and while shopping for a new TV, I made sure to inform the store and the other customers present about my terrible experience with Vizio. I will continue to spread the word and hopefully prevent others from wasting their money with this company as well.
