When I purchased my home I purchased 2 RCA TVs at the same time. When the small TV went out in February of 2012 I didn't think much about it. I just assumed that the TV had done all that it could do and that was the end. I accepted the TV not working, but a month later the big screen RCA TV went out. These TV are programmed to go out in a given amount of time. This is a horrible thing to do to a consumer. You purchase a product thinking that it will last you a while and they both go out within months of each other. I will never ever in life buy another RCA product. I have a Sanyo TV that my husband and I bought 16 years ago and it works perfectly. The 2 RCA products went out with less than 6 years of service. Now I have to decide whether to purchase new TVs or have a repairman to come out and repair them. The parts for these TV start at $100 and rise. I am so disappointed in RCA and wanted to share my feelings with anyone who would listen.
