Our newest one (this one) is just over 1 year old and the volume has gone crazy - we used to listen at 4 or 5 level, but then the other day it suddenly jumped, and now a 2 level is too load (like a 7 or 8 original), and a 1 level is too low (basically sound is off). This is our second unit and it lasted just over a year - The previous one lasted just about 2 years. On the previous one the unit started loosing the channels, at first only once in a while when you turned the tv on, but then every time you turned it on. You then had to go through the 10 mins or so to auto-program the channels. That lasted a little bit (month or so), and then it started happening while you were watching (about 1/2 hour in). In that case the screen went to blue, and you either got some strange error signal lost, with a bunch of random characters (numbers, letters, symbols) all over the screen. Sometimes just the gobbled up characters. In those cases unplugging the unit was the only way to unfreeze it/turn it off. After a while (at least 5 mins), you could turn the TV on, but now you had to reset everything, not just the channels. At that point I figured we just got a lemon and unlucky the warranty ran out, but now this one barely made it a year (just past warranty). Looks like I might just have to muffle the speakers for now, but if it is like the first one, I expect it will be a steady downhill slide to uselessness in the coming weeks/months. Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me :-(
I will stick to my guns this time and keep searching for a reputable company to buy from next time, but from my quick search it appears only Venturer and Coby sell these types of under cabinet TVs, so it might be time to lose the kitchen TV (wife won't like that prospect, but we can't keep throwing $230 away once a year. Cannot recommend.

I purchased this unit and had it for over a week now.
I really enjoy it very much, it has all the features I wanted.
The speakers are excellent quality and great sound. The TV has a great picture, and the controls are easy to understand and operate. It has a very nice appearance, does not look cheap, the color blends well with the kitchen cabinets. I am very pleased with this unit, can't say anything bad, meets my expectations.

Okay, I've had this unit now for about 2 years, and the only thing working on it is the Radio. The first thing to go wrong with it was the CD player, just stopped working, then the TV gradually went dead, and does not work at all.
So now I'm out the money, and without a TV that I enjoyed very much.
They make these units to last for only about 2 years, it's too bad that the technology is not there for them to last longer.
So if your thinking of buying one of these TV's, think twice, you'll probably have to replace it very shortly. Not a happy camper, Pjay

After eight months the screen on my Venturer flip down tv stopped working. I was told the warranty was for 3 months only, so I'm out of luck.

We bought a flip down Venturer brand TV. It seemed great at first, but after using it for eight months, the TV screen no longer works. We called to inquire and were told there was only a 90 day warranty.

Update This units TV stopped working late last year (2012). Square Trade paid me what I paid for it no questions asked! Well worth the $30 spent. Now we have another one of the same model and also got the same Suqare Trade warranty. As long as they keep honoring the warranty I'll keep going with this model, good while it lasts.

The first one I received had a high pitched squeal when the unit was powered off, you could hear it within about 3 feet. Amazon replaced it with no questions asked! The second one has it also but NO where near the first one had. You have to be right next to it to hear it, very tolerable. The mounting hardware could be better, the spacers for the screws won't stay on when you're trying to mount the unit. I had to use some Scotch tape to hold them on the screws when installing the TV. The picture on the TV is pretty good for the size, after all, it is a kitchen TV. Even though it is suppose to be cable ready, you still need a box or converter hooked up to it to get a picture. Because of the problems with the first unit and the mounting I gave it 4 stars. Because of the one review with the screen that went out, I also purchased the Square Trade warranty. $30 for three years can't be beat!!

I purchased one of these 2.5 years ago as a Christmas present for my wife. At first it was great with a good picture and nice features. After two years it developed a high pitched noise when you shut it off. Now at 2 1/2 years the screen is dead in it. I have seen similar comments elsewhere. Do yourself a huge favor and buy a different one.

Loved it. Great pic for the size. Good sound. We have only had it for 8 months and the screen stoppped working. I noticed several other complaints that say the same thing. 8 months is not long enough for it to not work already.

We've been trying to use this for over a week and there is one problem after another. The clock keeps stopping. The TV will only start if there's a DVD in. The picture goes out frequently. The color is all washed out and adjusting it has no effect. Last, it troubles me that this seems to be a discontinued model from a company with barely any web presence, IOW, you can't get any tech support. I'm trying to decide whether to replace it or get another brand. We got the 3-year extended warranty too but may need to get a refund on that too -- we're not even close to using up the mfr's warranty.

Tried 4 different brands of TVs and this is the only one that worked, and it works very well! It has good sound for being so small. The picture is very good. All our available channels come in with our outdoor antenna. Really like the little thing!

I bought this Undercounter LCD TV/DVD player right after Christmas 2009 and love it. The picture is very nice and clear, the DVD player works great and we have it on almost all the time. Perfect for the kitchen.
