Summary: I got my first new television that I ever bought... my wife recieved the TV, the delivery people were great and the unit turned on with my wife not noticing anything wrong. I got home, hooked the television up and began the setup process, as soon as I got a picture up and not a snow screen I immediately noticed a line of dead pixels from top all the way down to the bottom, a bit left of center screen.
Summary: Periodically the picture goes dark although the sound remains on. This lasts from a few seconds to several minutes. Nothing seems to help except turning tv off then back on. Customer service said to reset the tv but this did not help. We are waiting on them to make good their promise to send out a technician.
