I have no idea what your hang-up against the Chinese or Chinese brands is, that's your deal and lord knows I don't want to know.

best of luck getting a tv that meets your "personal principle".
I don't want to get into politics, but there are lots of reasons not to prop up a Chinese economy more than we do already as Americans.

I highly prefer Japanese products, but Panasonic is out of the American market and Sony (at least in my area) is only sold at Best Buy (of which, I can't get over the mountain passes to check out safely until the Spring time since they are about 3-4 hours away).

Samsung and LG are Korean.
Panasonic and Sony are Japanese.
TCL, Hisense, and one other I can't remember the name of are Chinese.
Vizio is an American based company of which they use parts and assembly from around the world.

No big deal on personal preference. I don't criticize what any of you do. I asked a straight forward question, set my parameters, and asked for help since many of you know way more than I do.

Thanks to those who answered me! It helped a lot in the search. I am going to do some research on some Vizio TV's this week that are at the higher end.

So if you want an all American made TV, you're not going to buy a TV at all because, there isn't an all American made TV.
1. My problem isn't "Asians." It's stuff made in China.
2. I have no problem with "foreigners" as you so distinctly termed "them."
3. I enjoy Japanese and Korean products - they make some great stuff. I personally prefer not to buy Chinese brands (TCL).
4. I agree with you that Vizio seems the better way to go than the TCL for me.
5. I never asked for an "all-American-made-TV."
6. It's very easy to cut China out of MANY things we buy - we can't do it entirely, but we can do it in many cases. Not EVERYTHING is made in China. In the same breathe, I can't cut their manufacturing out of everything at the moment and I acknowledge that. When I can, I do. I simply prefer not to support nations that enslave their people and treat their citizens the way that they do in the workforce and in life.

Sheesh.

I think Panasonic assemble units in Eastern Europe (for us lot) and Sony use panels from LG and Samsung.

Yeah, I miss Panasonic. I had a great run in the early days of flat screens with them. My parents still have a couple Plasmas that are like 10 years old that still run great.

I have no issue with LG. I've never owned one.

I have 2 Samsungs currently and haven't been overly impressed in the long run of the TV's due to various clouding and bleeding issues.

Do you have Sams Club around that can be accessed before the passes clear? They often have respectable prices and have models on display to see for yourself.
Emerson, Philips, Sylvania both American in name are now owned by Japanese company Funai
Westinghouse again, American in name is owned by CBS, a Chinese company

ONN via techwalla is an American based maker. Never heard of them or familiar with where to buy.

I wonít get into your policies or reasons, but I will say that I am still happy using my Sony KDL from 2008/2009. Aside from one day where there sound didnít work, itís been great. All I did was unplug it and gave it a dusting while unplugged. I still use my Sony CRT WEGA TVs for retro gaming and those were moved From Az to Va to NC to FL. Theyíve taken a beating and still work. That being said Iíve bought 2 PCs Dell and HP and 2 Dell Laptops in 5 years and all have failed.
