Viore TV Reviews
With more than a half-century of consumer electronics experience, Viore might be the least-known generic television manufacturer in the United States. The company has largely flown under the radar, but occasionally pops up when a discount retailer is having a big sale on HDTV units. While there are often amazing prices on these television sets, consumers have a large number of questions about the brand’ quality, reliability, and longevity. Are these low prices a mirage? Are there lots of catches? Or, like so many other generic consumer electronic brands, is Viore simply a hidden gem of a company that a savvy consumer can benefit from?
Viore TV Review Contents:
Viore is one of the rarely-seen generic television manufacturers, and that’s for good reason: the company has relatively limited product manufacturing facilities and its small capacity means that it offer great deals to consumers only periodically. Its low profile means that the company is exceedingly small and compact, and does a far small amount of business than even the nearest low-end consumer electronics competitor.
The company’s televisions are often sold exclusively to major discount retailers, such as Target, Wal-Mart, Kmart, and Sam’s Club. These stores are already hotbeds of discounts, and so the Viore brand naturally blends in and saves most consumers from asking the tough questions. This would be a mistake, however, as Viore is one of the most disliked television manufacturers among consumers who have purchased the company’s products. The brand’s name is almost universally associated with poor quality and a short lifespan, and consumers should take note.
Viore Product Quality
There’s not much to say about Viore’s product quality other than it seems to be exceptionally bad. The company rarely offers its television to he mass market and yet, when it does, most customers end up returning the product in exchange for something that costs a bit more, but won’t break or completely malfunction as easily or as quickly. Consumers have reported that Viore’s displays are notoriously short-lived, with a good number of them dying within the first six months of television ownership. Most buyers aren’t very impressed with the quality of these display panels, either, and they often end up returning the set because the picture is simply not watchable for long periods of time.
Compounding the problem is the fact that Viore’s high definition television sets are often constructed with thin, brittle, and very cheap plastic. It’s prone to easy splintering and cracking, and it can make for an unsightly mess in the living room — and an embarrassing sight for guests. Viore buyers have been complaining about this shoddy quality for years, but the company seems either blissfully unaware or too stubborn to make a change to the way to constructs and controls the quality of its televisions.
Viore Pricing & Value
If there’s one thing Viore wins on, it is price. The company’s television sets are easily the cheapest ones on the market. That having been said, however, it’s also worth noting that the company’s sets don’t seem to hold up once consumers get them home and take them out of the box. Low prices are a great starting point for any consumer electronics device, but if that low price isn’t backed up by high quality and a long-lasting product, consumers will quickly go elsewhere for their home entertainment needs.
Given the wide array of quality problems and the deepening discontent among consumers who have purchased a Viore product, it’s safe to say that the low price of these high definition televisions simply does not yield to a much higher value one time. Unfortunately, it seems safe to say that Viore is simply a poor investment on the part of most consumers, and a good number of them will be sending the set back to stores almost as impulsively as they purchased it.
Viore Customer Service
Naturally, one would assume that a company that has had a questionable quality record might establish a robust customer service operation to help assuage consumer fears and doubts, and keep them as long-term customers. At Viore, that assumption would be wrong. The company does not operate a robust customer support line, and the website for the company’s products has jut four pages — none of which offer much product support at all.
It’s a really unfortunate situation for customers who choose to buy these television sets. It’s almost as if the company simply walks away after the deal has been made — and consumers are left to fend for themselves.
Viore Overall Rating
For consumers looking for the lowest price on a high definition television set, Viore is the brand of choice. Its prices simply cannot be touched by any other manufacturer. But quality is a real problem with these sets, and customer support is almost nonexistent. The serious home entertainer would be well-advised to look into other brands for their needs.
