I have a 42" Sanyo LCD in my game room. It's alright I guess. Nothing fancy, but it gets the job done...

Had it since February I think.

It's this one; Walmart.com: SANYO 42" Class LCD 1080p 60Hz HDTV, DP42840: TVs (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sanyo-DP42840/14237667)

I don't know much about plasma tv's, dude. Never had one...

You can't base your purchases on those reviews, because lots of people are too stupid to write up a product. One guy gave my tv 1 out of 5 stars because the remote didn't work. And that was within the first couple negative reviews I read. The tv is definitely nothing special, but for $500-ish it's just fine. When you buy a cheap *** television you can't expect it to perform like a high end model that costs 3x as much...

I've offered pretty much all I can. I don't know **** about televisions. I've only had two decent ones in my life...a Philips and the Sanyo that I have now.

what did you end up buying? and how do you feel about it? I am looking at the same problems you are, i was thinking of purchasing the walmart sanyo 50' DP50740 and many of the reviews are only 2 - 7 weeks while everything over a year or two is bad due to tv failure. of course, after that much time how many people would really take the time to go back and review unless there was a problem that pissed them off...

i dont see why a tv wont last at least 2 years unless its defective.

ive had some old tvs and monitors last a long time.

i got a Toshiba used(who knows how long), had it for 2 years its still going fine
