FOREST CITY, ARKANSAS -- I purchased this TV about one year ago and it was manufactured in May of 2007. The picture tube went out and it is not repairable. What a real piece of junk, the sound always had a vibration sound in it, hard to believe that a picture tube would only last 2 years. The TV was only was never used during the day, only some at night. Can you imagine how long the TV would have lasted if it had been our main TV during the day. The TV we use during the day has lasted about 15 years. I have read the reviews and apparently TVs are not the only product that doesn't last very long. You make some pretty poor products.
My advice to anybody buying electronics, don't buy Sanyo. You need to keep junk like that over in Japan. The hell of it is is that WalMart knows these things have to be junk and they still sell them.
