Dead and no parts to fix it!

Pros:Good price, nice picture and sound.

Cons:Non-programmable for other remotes, POOR RELIABILITY! NO PARTS AVAILABLE!

The Bottom Line: Look at ANY other brand first, or buy two, so you have spare parts.


We bought this on sale at Sears, in late November of 05. Price was great and the picture and sound could not be beat. One irritation was the lack of compatibility with any other standard remote. Leaves you having to use two remotes to control the TV and a satellite box or DVR. The power indicator light is also a little bright. If you decide to have this unit in your bedroom, it can be used as a night light to keep from tripping over the dog. Also, we had to unplug it a few times to turn it off, after both the remote control and panel controls quit working. I guess the biggest complaint, is that after only 8 months it suffered a major component failure. The service tech said this was becoming a common problem as these sets were getting some time on them. So many, that there is a back order time on the repair parts of over 3 months. Sears is taking it back, although they are charging me a 15% return charge. Not a happy camper, but I'll take it after all the trouble we've had with it! BE CAREFUL IF YOU DECIDE TO BUY ONE!!
