I also thought Vizio was made in USA.


My Vizio 55" 240Hz LED/LCD HDTV/w Internet Apps(manufactured the 9th week of 2011,info supplied through my 722k's HDMI Test,Info 2) says on the back"Assembled in Mexico".

Also on the back label,Vizio,39Tesla,Irvine,CA.92618-USA

My understanding is that though they have an office in America, they are actually a Korean company...

Not that it matters to me... :rolleyes:

I wonder how it can be cheaper? Oh thats right, the USA got rid of slave labor. Until the rest of the world catches up, you'll never be able to compete with slave labor, period!

Well,
I know I read somewhere that supporters want to introduce legislation in Michigan to change that state to a "right to work" state.

Here in Pa., we lost a lot of jobs to southern "right to work" states, [ that is if they weren't sent overseas ]

So, if that happens [ I realy doubt it, tho] it'll be cheaper labor in Michigan.
