Sony HDTV's The Most Reliable, Mitsubishi's The Worst

pcworld(2).jpgSony HDTV's are by far the most reliable according to a survey of 16, 000 HDTV owners at PCWorld. The survey rated each HDTV according to nine measures, from customer service to picture quality. Sony rated higher than average in seven categories, while LG, Panasonic, Sharp, Samsung and Vizio each had two high scores.

Mitsubishi lagged in last, scoring below average in four categories and both Hitachi and JVC didn't fare much better. In the end, it's really no surprise that the most reliable HDTV's are also the most expensive. At the same time it's encouraging to see a budget manufacturer like Vizio ranking so highly.

I don't understand how the LG brand rates so high. LG has not been putting out FLat panels as long as Sony, Panasonic or Samsung. I have had an LG out of the box show green lines on the screen. Many people have indicated that the LG picture is not clear and is out of focus and cloudy. Did LG run the survey?

Interesting you say that. The majority of comments on TVSnob this holiday season have touted the benefits of Vizio HDTV's...almost exclusively!

I don't know about this Sony rating..I have had two that have died unexpectedly leaving me out of a LOT of money. I switched a couople of months ago to a Vizio VP422 and it has been great. Picture quality is better and with the few questions I've had their customer support has been fantastic.
