Excerpt: I bought an LG 42" plasma 2 1/2 years ago. It was great for a while, and then a red line appeared on one side of the screen. Before long, the entire picture was gone. The cost to repair? Over $700, in effect making it worthless except for parts. What a shame. If you risk it, buy the extended warranty.
LG Is A Rip Off -- Product Stops Working After 45 Days!

Summary: Purchased an LG TV on strength of recommendation from friend. TV worked fine for 44 days. On 45th day, picture disappeared and then came back only intermittently. LG takes position that its only obligation under warranty at this point is to schedule service for several weeks out. Answer should have been "Sorry, we will of course replace it." So, if you're looking for a TV for 44 days and don't mind spending a thousand dollars, this is for you.
Summary: I bought that TV, less then two month later the TV is not working, I am looking at a black screen. The customer service for LG is very poor, and now I have to wait a month before the received the piece of equipment to fix the problem... Never again I will buy LG. Next time I will go with Panasonic.
