Used for three months and returned to place of purchase, for the left backlight column being un-lit, fall 2007.   Further, though the TV supported 1920 x 1080 video, there was a limitation in less expensive 1080p "full high-def" television sets of the time such as this model reducing chroma information per-pixel at 1080p, chroma subsampling, so I purchased instead a moderately finer model early in 2008.   By 2009 from what I saw, the less expensive 1080p televisions also had chips suitable to supply 1920x1080 video to their pixels without reducing chroma data.   As photographed here, I used the Vizio VU42L for a desktop computer screen, on a table behind a desk, using 1280x720 video for clear text without chroma subsampling effects.

Paper towel and waxed string cone wick.   Glass cup oil candle/lamp, shelf/ledge items before mirror on window ledge, August 18, 2020.   Unlit, January 9, 2021, December 21, 2020.   Not looking to use oil cup candle flame every day, or terribly often - biggest minus, roasted oil vapor into the air for a few seconds after the flame halts, as the hot, thick wick cools.   I've tried using a jar to catch the post-flame vapour seconds, and then carry it to an open window with a card under the jar, with some effectiveness.
