I usually buy items such as this through Amazon but found that my local Walmart was actually about $ 2 cheaper. Of course I had to pay sales tax but wanted the flexibility of an easy return if necessary. I wanted a small set for our screened porch and initially purchased a 22-inch Sansui at Walmart for $ 178. I am with Direct TV and did not want to add another HD box since I already have two. On standard definition, the Sansui's picture was unacceptable (uneven color, poor flesh tones, flushed color, etc.) even after a lot of "tweaking". The sound was even worse especially the lack of volume. Needless to say this overpriced piec of junk was returned to Walmart and they cheerfully refunded my purchase price. I then turned around, went to the back of the store and bought the 19-inch Vizio. We had bought this same set 6 months ago for the kitchen and I could have saved myself some trouble by duplicating this puchase. At $ 158, we are just as pleased with this new Vizio as we are with the kitcen set. Easy set up (even with the Direct TV connection), great picture (even with standard def) after some customizing and excellent quality high volume sound from front-firing spekers. This is our third Vizio - the 26-inch set on HD is simply magnifiscent ! In summary, to save youself time, effort and money when TV shopping pick the screen size then pic Vizio !
