Be Vary Careful About Polaroid HDTV's

Just wanted to give a piece of advice. I bought a New Polaroid HDTV set in
December 2008. Everything worked fine but the HDMI Input wasn't even a
HDMI Input even the tech guy didn't know what it was. They sent me a new
replacement part. Tech guy put it in and it fried my entire TV.

Polaroid said they would send a replacement and never did. After talking to
Numerous Associates and Supervisors with no result. I filed 5 claims against
Polaroid with different Government Agencies. Then guess what, I recieved a new one in two days.

Had the new one different model and after a month the RF Coaxial Connector
went Bad. Had to call Polaroid again, go through all the sane stuff as before,
but this time I consulted a Lawyer on any suit I could file against them. I had
this 2nd defective set for about 3 months.

Guess what after they where informed I retained a Lawyer. They sent me
a new TV in 2 days. Got it Friday, this one is also a different model. Will see
how long this one lasts.

Do yourself a huge favor and agrevation and stay away from Polaroid TV's.

In you situation I would have asked for my money back and then bought a different make from a reliable supplier.
I have a Panasonic HDTV with a 5 year warranty, now that it is run in the picture is excellent.
People will often expend more time and energy avoiding work or the task before them than it would actually take to do it.
