I've had a Sanyo LED for 4 years. Works great!

I have a Sanyo 40 inch flat screen TV that I just bought. I came home one day and my TV would not turn on. There had been a bad storm that day and I think lightning may have struck it. I called Sanyo customers service and told them what had happened. They were very nice and arranged for shipping at their expence both to and return. They fixed my TV for free even though I had told them it was probably struck by lightning, I will always be a Sanyo customer for life. The TV had a great picture and is very easy to use. Thank you Sanyo for being a great company to do business with

Anyone else have experience with this brand? What do you think about it? Was it a good deal?
Of sets manufactured since 2010, I'd say any brand of TV is only as good as the content displayed on it, and how accurately it is adjusted.

I've seen Sanyo go both ways.


I used to have an old 19" CRT Sanyo tv. I got it back in 1995 and it was still working like a top in 2012 when I sold it for $15.


My in-laws purchased a 50" Sanyo LCD tv back in 2013 and it lasted about two years before it died on them. The motherboard had to be replaced, so they ended up trashing it and buying a Vizio. I think it's about 6 of one, half a dozen of another with TV's now.


I typically use LG's, but we caught the LeEco 55" Ultra 4K on clearance a few months ago for $350. The picture is actually better than my $900 LG 4K in the living room. Only time will tell if it holds up, but we shall see.

The biggest and most common factor in the premature deaths of LCD and LED TVs is the back light. It is factory set to max by most manufacturers. That consumes a lot of energy and generates a load of heat, stressing and damaging internal components.

Go into your Picture menu settings and dial that Backlight setting back at least to 2/3rds of max, or even mid-way. Boost the Brightness control a little to compensate for any loss of detail in dark areas of the image. Merry Christmas!

I see a LeEco L554UCNN 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV, Silver (2016 Model) for $799.99 on Amazon Prime.

Do you have an earlier mode?

LeEco was founded in 2004 and tried to buy Vizio last year. they have been having financial problems recently.
