Product Review (submitted on January 2, 2012):
XVT553SV purchased 11/26/2010
This tv has a mind of it's own. Went away for three days in the summer and when we returned the damn thing was on. Don't have a notion for how long. I have gone to bed only to see flashes and hear voices and find it turned itself on. Just recently the sound cracks and pops when first turned on in the morning. Picture freezes. Right now we are waiting days for a repair person to show up to fix the current problem (via extended warranty). The latest problem showed this weekend just in time for the big football games. The stupid thing shuts down every thirteen seconds and restarts (they blinking vizio light).
Would not recommend the led.
Vizio washes their hands for fixes the day the warranty expires. If you buy one you better get a service extension, you will need it.
Should have stuck with original decision to purchase Samsung
