Polaroid-03210d, TV Complaint - TV Died After 2 years, 2 months

Review by Reesedelk on 2010-02-18
I purchase a TV on black Friday from Walmart in 2008. While I was watching the TV out of no where it does died. I called for assistance to get help and I was told that my power supply went out and it will cost me about 400.00 or more to come out, and fix. Polaroid stated that it will take 2 weeks to get the part, 2 weeks more to get someone to come out and fix, and it will only have limited time warranty on the part. I am buying another TV and it will not be Polaroid or any other Polaroid products for that matter.

Polaroid makes very crappy TVs. A Polaroid TV was passed on to us from a relative and it's terrible. I would not buy one. I'm assuming they are cheap.

You really don't hear anything much good about Polaroid TV's. Seems the company went down the drain when the Instamatic camera became obsolete.

Since the warranty is usually a year, to my way of thinking, you got over twice the service you paid for. I would be willing to bet if your nose wasn't so far out of joint, you might get it fixed. I won't buy Magnavox TVs. I don't know about other Magnavox stuff, but I am aware that Magnavox color TVs are notorious for eating picture tubes.

Please, once again, THERE IS NO MORE POLAROID. The company went out
of business years ago, after the popularity of the digital camera. All that
is left is the brand name which was purchased by a third party who will lease the Polaroid name to ANY manufacturer who can pay the license fee.
Polaroid makes NOTHING. Any product can have the Polaroid name for the right price. These companies are taking advantage of a well known former brand. Stay away.
