I just purchased one on 1/10/07, has been a wonderful Television. Only problem is in he last week, the audio has been rappidly declining. Not sure if this is just a single problem in this product (being only my unit), or if this is a common problem. The audio will rappidly dissapae to nothing. But after powering the unit on & off several times, I can get he audio to stay stable. I am waiting to hear from the manufacturer on what I will have to do to solve this problem. Other than this recien development, the picture quality is superb. It also supports a VGA computer input, which makes it an awesome computer monitor (which I have anjoyed). The High deff wih my dvd sysem is beautiful on this LCD. I really have nothing bad o say about this system as of yet. I will follow up later as to the solution & cause of my audio loss.

I purchased the Visco model VSC-32V1 32" LCD television from Walmart.com for a mere $598. The total invoice with tax, shipping and the additional 2 year warranty contract was a total of $728. I was worried about the lack of knowledge I had about the company Visco, but based on my ability to purchase the additional 2 year service warranty contract through Wal-mart, I decided to take the risk. Also, the price verses specs and options is a no brainer (1000:1 contrast and 500 nits brightness, HDMI connection and a whole host of additional digital and A/V hookups, including a set on the side of the television.). Keep in mind I had the money to spend on a much more expensive widely known national brand and model, but chose to take a chance on this brand and model based on its abilities verses price. I am always hunting and shopping for the best deal out there on the internet and in the stores and to date, this television offered through Wal-mart's website was the best deal out there, hands down, period and trust me, I do my homework and have a better than average technical background and knowledge about electronics. I have owned the television. since the 22nd of December 2006 and I can't say enough good things about it. It has PIP (Picture in Picture), which is a feature I didn't see available on any of the other 32"LCD's out there, several picture settings (i.e. Cinema, Sport, Vivid, Normal, etc...), several picture size settings (i.e. Normal 4:9, Wide, Wide screen 16:9 , Zoom etc...), several speaker output settings (i.e. Normal, stereo, rock, jazz, classical, surround etc...) and the speakers sound much better than the other brands I looked at in person at the stores. The remote is metal and feels nice and heavy in your hand and is easy to use. Kudos to Visco for making their remotes & televisions sturdy and not cheap like rest of the companies out there. The picture quality, contrast ratio, brightness, sound and all the other features are outstanding and I, this technically savvy consumer is one happy camper.

I, too, took a big breath and bought the Visco 37" from Walmart. I couldn't be happier with it.
Set it up next to a new Samsung 32" and the only difference I see is about $500. Great picture, not the best sound but I have it hooked up through a surround sound system so it doesn't matter. The piano gloss cabinet makes it look very upscale. Best-feeling remote I've ever used, heavy, smooth metal. The only LCD I've seen with a better picture is my boss's $4000 Sony Bravia.
I'd by another Visco in a minute. With a few new television technologies on the horizon (SED, OLED) I can't see the sense in spending a lot of money on any TV right now.

I got a Visco 32" tv 3 months ago.

Lately there has been a huge black rectangle covering the bottom half of the screen that shows up for a few minutes, then goes away for a few, and keeps returning. I can barely watch anything. There have also been little black squares in random areas of the screen too. What is this, and how do I get rid of it? Is this just what I get for buying a tv from Walmart??

I had the black squares, too. It was the text setting in the closed closed caption option that I had accidentally turned on. Try turning off Closed Captioning on the Setup menu.

I just bought two of these for my sons' game room so they can play both their gaming systems and it works great for them, good sound for what I paid for them. They were the 20" version from walmart and I bought them for 198.00 and they are worth every penny.

Anyone know how to fix a loud humming sound coming from the tv? It makes the hum with both DVDs and cable- so loud I barely want to watch anything. Also, the remote has stopped working, even when the batteries changed. Other discussion boards have noted the same problems, but no constructive ways to fix it.

This message is to answer the posting made by Jo-Anne Diaferia. There are several picture modes available for this LCD T.V. (ie. Cinema, Sports) The settings for Cinema and Sports, etc, are for the most part locked in for the settings under those picture modes. There is also a user picture mode in which you can totally adjust each setting to your liking. You can adjust the brightness, color, sharpness etc and it will also let you choose between cool and warm. I change my picture mode depending on whether we are playing video games or watching a movie. I have also noticed that some cable or sat signals can make a difference on what mode I feel looks better to me. I hope this helps.

DO NOT BUY A VISCO TV. I'd like to discourage anyone from buying a Visco tv. I have had the tv for 6 months and there is a loud humming noise that is louder than the volume of the program. Also, the remote on mine is dead, and apparently it is a common problem. When I try to get a hold of someone for tech support, all I get is a voicemail. I have left tons of messages and of course no one gets back to me. Basically if your Visco tv breaks down, which it most likely will, the warrantly is worthless because no one will be there to help you. I feel like I threw $700 down the toilet. Spend the extra money and don't make the same mistake I did.

i purchased my visco 32 inch lcd from walmart onlin in december 2006 and i have not one bad thing to say about it infact i am looking to purchase a 50 or 60 inch television (lcd) but the problem is the visco was so cheap in price and so detailed and sharp i dont want to spend alot of money when lcd's by a no or lesser name brand are just as good if not better. Like someone in an earlier post mentioned my 32 inch visco has more bells and whistles than most or all of the higher end brands that cost twice and thrice as much the only setbacks or problems i have with the tv is it has one hdmi port so i had to buy a hdmi port selector switch so now i have my playstation 3, xbox 360, computer, hd cable and hd dvd player connected to it, i wished i could have had atleast one more hdmi port but not a problem now and theother is the audio i have a 5.1 audio system hooked up to it so the sound from there is nice but just the regular sound from the tv is alright but it seems to tank out around the 30 level still having 20 more to go so there is no difference between 30 and 50. thats about it oh i as of yesterday i have noticed i have one dead pixel, it didnt freak me out hell when you buy an lcd tv of anybrand they have a disclaimer that the tv brand new might have 1 to 3 dead pixels upon buying it and it is not a reason to return the tv they say it is normal and all too common , well i had not one dead pixel when i got my tv and i coukd only tell because i had the cable off and the blue screen was on but for as uch as i put my tv through, computer, video games and tv all the time and only one dead pixel and a whole years plus use , hell i love it wouldnt trade it i visit the website regularly so when the do make a large screen i am on it big time.

I've had a 20" Visco LCD TV for a few months. Yesterday, I discovered there was no longer any picture, but the sound is fine. I have been through every menu option and reconnected all cables, but no success.
This happened once before and I was able to view a DVD from the player which is connected to the monitor -- then the TV channels were viewable after I turned off the DVD player. But no luck this time. The online user manual is useless.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have also had a 20" Visco LCD TV for a few months. this morning I turned it on and there was no picture. But it had sound. I unhooked the cable and put it through my dvd burner and hooked up to the component connection and it gets a picture. But I have to change the channels on the DVD burner.

I'd consider it a good thing. It could save someone doing research before buying a TV from ending up with crap.

I found some Visco parts here guys:
http://www.discount-merchant.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=visco

I've had a few 32" Visco TV's with a bad video board that would prevent them from powering on. It seemed like the bios was currupt. The above website was the only place I could find Visco parts.

Hope you guys can help me, I don't know where to go at this point since I have no luck finding the VISCO website for contact. Here's my question, my son brought a VISCO 32 "LCD TV off craigslist, no remote control was included but he assumed he could get a universal remote or even buy a replacement remote but we had no luck with that, he insist that there are no power on buttons, etc on the tv itself, the front panel indicates, vol up, down, channel up down etc but no buttons are actually there, does this seem feasible. Those of you who have this TV can you help me out. Thanks

Are we talking about VISCO or VIZIO TV's here? Or are they the same?
I have a VIZIO with a problem. If I am in the wrong place, please let me know.
