Disappointed after a few years
29 January 2012
Summary: Bought this model from Amazon in February, 2009. Delivery and set up went without a hitch and I was initially happy with the TV. The black finish from the bezel started coming off where the bezel met the screen by mid-2010. Early in 2011, a tbin vertical line appeared in the right third of the screen, from top to bottom. The line was visible at all times when the TV was on, but it was particularly visible when red or orange images were on screen.
Summary: Just a little warning about their warranty policy. Samsung doesn't replace broken TVs even if they are brand new. I bought this TV and within 1 day there was vertical lines showing up. Within 1 week there were several different color lines. Samsung contacted a local TV repair to fix it and I was not impressed with the repair shop. They wanted to order a new LCD panel to replace it which would take 2 weeks just to come in. I was already out the TV 2 weeks.
