Windows 7: Windows 7 is so complicated, should I change it?

The good and bad: Consumer Reports Electronics Blog: Vizio: The new top-selling LCD TV brand—and a fairly reliable one, too

Over all, Vizio made a mark by undercutting the market with a better product. I had heard about it, but I haven't looked yet.

Edit: if you read though, Vizio has its issues. take with a grain of salt. People who don't have problems don't post comments.

I have a Vizio and I can vouch for their quality, sure they are not the BEST out there, but it's definitely worth the price. As far as I know, people having consistent problems with Vizio are a small minority.

I have four LCDs from them. One is the 42" I mentioned above, and I have two 19" screens, and a 22". I am very happy with all of them.

Here's what led to my decision. I read a ton of reviews, but the one that stood out from me was the one PCWorld did on 42" screens. My Vizio finished second to a Samsung. At that time, the Samsung cost $2300, while I paid $700 (brand new) for my Vizio. Is the Samsung a better TV? I'm sure it is, but I could have bought three of my TVs for the same price. Maybe a home theater snob would turn their nose up at my TV, but I feel like I got great value with the purchase. The built-in speakers actually sound quite good (for an LCD TV), and it was loaded with more inputs, like 4 HDMI ports, than most of the others I compared it to. I'm using all four, so that was a needed feature for me.

Sounds like a great review. What stop me from buying the Vizio was the contrast of the colors showed and that they only had it on 32 in, this was in Sam's Club, the guy who showed me the TV put a Sony Bravia next to the Vizio, and the Bravia had a better imagen, also, I did not like the screen/image turned grey on the Vizio when you change position ... but besides that, the resolution was great and the volume too, and the prize very good, but I had to chose between my "laptop on a stand" (that's how you called it) and the LCD, and the laptop won, since my old Dell keep on crashing, I will wait for Santa this Xmas and see what offers he brings ... LOL ... may be a 3D LCD

You can't ever trust what you see in a store. The Sony was a higher cost item, so they are going to show the higher cost TV as better. That's why you have to read reviews online form independent sources that have nothing to gain by your choice. Sony is on my list of brands to avoid anyway, but that's for another thread.

Yeah, those are expensive items, I'd had bad experiences with Sony products, I prefer LG, cheaper and great quality. I use to read reviews online, but it does not always work, I've found bad and good reviews from the same item and at the end there's nothing clear.
