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...
DO NOT BUY-Bad Quality, 3 fixes still no good. Horrible Customer Service.
22 July 2009
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.
Summary: I received this item as an early Christmas gift in Nov '08, and am extremely happy with it. The picture quality is excellent, buch better than my previous HD TV from TSHBA that was not 1080p. The viewing angle is excellent, the blacks are very black, and the brights are very bright.
