Stores with best/worst electronics return policies?
Been having a problem with my Vizio TV which I bought directly from the company, and since I have the warranty they may give me the option of cash instead of a replacement TV, in which case I'll go shopping for something better.
With the way stores are set up lately, it's almost impossible to tell if a TV is going to work the way you want it to until you bring it home. While I'll do all I can to make sure I'm getting what I want before making the purchase, I want to make sure I can return it within 30 days if I find anything unacceptable with it. I plan on buying from a local retailer so they will be close by if I have any problems; having bought my Vizio from the company which is about 8 hours away from me, it's been a nightmare communicating with them.
Also do any retailers have decent repair service these days? I was appalled at the people sent by my warranty company to fix my Vizio, they looked like they were from fly-by-night outfits and knew very little about what they were doing. (Circuit City's people were like that too- they actually ruined a TV I had about 15 years ago, which is why I wasn't the least bit sad when they went under!)
Finally- one of my requirements is that the TV be able to display unconverted PAL signals. Has anyone brought in their own DVD player to a store to try on their TVs and been given crap about doing that?
