Summary: Our screen went white all of a sudden, like a photo negative. For a product that was not exactly cheap, 3 years is unacceptable. I found some people solved it with a fix you can find here ([...]), but I had no luck with it. Samsung -- never again!
Summary: I would stay clear of any of these sets even used ones. Major malfunctions with this and many other Samsung models. Have had mine less than 3 years, pretty bummed out as I own 4 other Samsung major appliances.
Summary: I have owned this TV for two years and it recently failed. Two separate problems -- the capacitors on the power supply are bad (a known problem) and the main board failed. Apparently many Samsung TVs have failed due to bad capacitors, and this is a common problem for Samsung.
Summary: BOUGHT THIS TELEVISON IN NOV. 2008 DUE TO VERY GOOD REVIEWS. ONE YEAR, SEVEN MONTHS LATER THE TELEVISION DOES NOT WORK. SAMSUNG SAID THEY CANNOT DO ANYTHING FOR ME. I AM CONFIDENT THAT ALL TELEVISTION COMPONENTS ARE MADE IN ONE BIG FACTORY OVERSEAS AND THEY SLAP DIFFERENT BRAND LABELS ON THEM.
Summary: I had the TV for 13 months, during which time it was fantastic. I expected as much for $[...]. Mysteriously the TV simply died: the picture went blank and it failed to turn on. To add insult to injury, I was just outside the 1 year warranty period when the TV failed, so there was nothing I could do...
Summary: I'd recommend this TV to anyone! It's reasonably priced and has quality features and a very good picture! I bought this TV for my wifes parents and they love it! I decided to purchase this TV based on the reviews I've researched and I was not disappointed.
DO NOT BUY-Bad Quality, 3 fixes still no good. Horrible Customer Service.

Summary: I bought this TV August 2008 and started to have screen blackout issues within 6 months. Customer service came 2-3 times and basically swapped out the power supply, mother board and the LCD panel itself. Only thing didn't change was the plastic cover and stand.
Summary: Bought this top rated LCD for the bedroom - very nice. LCD is the way to go if you want light weight, cool running television for a bright, sunlit room. OTHERWISE, I would still stick with the plasma technology.
