Hi, you guys seem to know a bit about Vizio TV's, so may I ask a question.

My brother in Florida called me yesterday, he bought a 42" Hitachi plasma for $999 a couple weeks ago. Now he sees a 50" Vizio plasma TV for only $1299 & he is thinking about switching. His question was....Who makes Vizio Tv's? we both have thought we had heard Sony did, but we are clueless on this subject. Also, if you own Vizio, how do you rate their product, as we are very unfamiliar with Vizio?

Thanks for reading & all replies are appreciated

Can't believe someone on the forum for over 2 years and does not know anything about Vizio.

Can't believe someone on the forum for over 2 years and doesn't understand that "double posting" is a NO NO!

Search the forum, and you will learn all about Vizio.

FYI, I didn't double post. I started a thread last nite asking about Vizio & this morning I seen some people talking about exactly what I wanted to know about...VIZIO!!!...& thought if I chimed in someone would be nice enuff to help me out. So IF that was a double post, may the MODERATORS (not you) correct me & please forgive my mistake.

And I don't know about VIZIO because except for a junky RCA TV we don't use, EVERY TV in my house says SONY on it & they are all I have ever read about. So please excuse me for not knowing the details about every brand of TV's out there. The way you guys were talking I figured a couple of you owned a VIZIO.

billinprinceto Have a Nice day

As a matter of fact! Vizio wasn't the 1st to bring down prices of the panels. Anyone who has been following this long enough will remember the Gateway stores...
Most plasmas...and their weren't many were $7,500+ and Gateway was offering theirs for around $3,500 +/- and this shook up the buisness a little.
Well, long story short. They weren't able to make it.
Let's hope that Vizio has learned all of the mistakes that they made and can move on.

I do remember 'Olevia' I almost paid $2300 for a 32" panel..(2004 all the rest were double that and more) reading the info, they had the right idea but didn't act fast enough... the big box stores like Costco and Walmart are key.

from the Vizio site:

One of the biggest surprises was the shake-up in North America TV brand rankings in Q2'07. Vizio, which has only been in the TV market since mid-2003, became the #1 LCD TV brand for the first time, rising from #4 in Q1'07 to #1 in Q2'07, with more than 70% Q/Q and 400% Y/Y unit growth and overtaking Samsung as shown in Table 1. While Sharp remained #3, Funai jumped from #6 to #4, and Polaroid rose from #11 to #5 on new distribution at Wal-Mart.

In addition, due to Vizio's #4 position in plasma TVs in Q2'07, up from #5, the company was #1 in the North American flat panel TV (LCD + Plasma) market on a unit basis with an 11.9% to 11.3% advantage over Samsung, as shown in Table 2. Moreover, Samsung overtook Sony in microdisplay rear projection (MD-RPTVs), as shown in Table 3, after trailing Sony for the past 10 consecutive quarters as both Sony's 3LCD and SXRD product lines experienced Y/Y and Q/Q declines.

"Vizio's rise from the #15 flat panel TV brand in Q2'05 to #1 in Q2'07 is quite remarkable given the intense competition in this market. Vizio's successful expansion outside of the club channel to Circuit City, Sears and Wal-Mart, while maintaining its attractive price points, further boosted its growth and enabled the company to earn the #1 ranking in the North American flat panel TV market."
