People in the U.S. work to darn hard to spend there money on products that are not warranted well enough. or from a forign co. that don't care about anything but getting the money. sanyo has had a defect in there plasma t v 's for some time. as soon as they are out of warranty they will go out. I spent 1200 bucks for one and now I have to have it hauled to the dump. this co takes million's from people and don't give anything back. I will not buy sanyo products anymore and will advise my family and friends to do the same. its the only way to get this co to pay attention.
