We bought a Vizio LCD tv from Sam's club 2 years ago. We had never heard of the brand and there wasn't much to find out about them on the internet. We took a chance, it was cheaper than the other brands, and the picture quality looked fantastic in the store. Now, 2 years later, I would buy another on in a heartbeat. We have had no trouble what so ever with the tv and are very, very happy with it.
