I was shopping for a new HDTV because my 4 year old 37" Vizio set caught on fire and Vizio, with their excellent customer service (NOT), refused to replace the TV. I went to Walmart to see if I could find something of good quality at a low price. I looked around and checked out a few sets. After a while I decided on this Sanyo 39" 1080p HDTV. I was kind of iffy at first about this set. Sanyo is not a brand name that you hear a lot about, but I knew that they have been around for a while. Another thing is, $298 for a 39" 1080p HDTV? What was the catch? Well, fortunately, there was no catch. So far this TV has done me very well. The picture quality is excellent (considering that you change the video options to your liking), the audio quality is okay but not bad for basic TV speakers. I really like the fact that it has a built in 4 channel equalizer so you can change the sound to your liking. As said, the picture quality is very good, I'd even say it's better than my Vizio (which at the time that I bought it, it was $798). Very sharp, crisp picture and the LED back light brightens the whole TV very nicely. The contrast ratio is also excellent. Whites are very bright, and blacks are very dark. I am using this TV as a gaming television, and a computer monitor. No complaints what so ever. This is a product that I would ABSOLUTELY recommend to anyone, be it that they're on a budget, or not. If you need a television for your living room, bedroom, business, or for any other use, than this is an excellent choice.
