    Just to have it for my room in my townhouse. So I take it out, and it smells like overheating electronics. I say...its new, no biggie. So I plugged it in and it worked fine. But when I did the smell gets worse and u can smell it a good distance away from the TV. Is this normal for a new TV? I took it back once and exchanged it and have the same problem. I'm not sure if I should take it back and get a name brand so I don't have to worry about it catching fire or something.

    Let me know what you think.

    so is the general decision that APEX tv's are crap? cause as a poor college student, those 20" tv's for $99 are very tempting...
