But Vizio is one I can't go for unless it's too cheap to ignore. It's a shame that out of the dozen or so sets the family bought over the past 5 years, all are dead. Coincidence to the fan boys but I'd skip that brand unless there is some 2+ year warranty or just too good a deal to pass up.
I've narrowed it down to the Philips 42PFL5907/F7 and Vizio E420i-A1. Both seem great, they meet my budget and are supposed to do well in bright rooms. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, i simply can't decide myself.
