Completely different experience here. My really old, 30 years?? Sony 13" Trinitron tube TV still works perfectly, as does my somewhat younger but still old 27" Sony Trinitron tube set. The 40" Sony Bravia LCD I purchased 7-plus years ago still operates as it did on the day I unboxed it.

Ever since the Samsung DLP fiasco, their response to it, and how quickly consumers forget, I don't think any manufacture of consumer electronics worry about or even care how you feel. So long as they keep pumping out some new product with some new feature, people will flock and buy it just because its the latest and greatest item. It appears the 'throw away' consumer mentality has taught manufactures to make products based on the sale, and don't worry about its actual use or failures.

It's the luck of the draw, which box you pick at the store. The Sony could have died after 1 week or lasted 10 years. There are people that have a Vizio TV and think it's the best and they last forever. I bought a 48" and it was a lemon out of the box with 3 major problems. Waste of 2 weeks with Vizio C.R. Brought it back to store for a refund.
