Lines on screen after ~3years.. bad product.

Summary: After about ~3years, the LCD television started to show lines across the screen when starting up. It takes like ~20 minutes of warm up for the monitor to clear, otherwise the color looks distorted and there are lines at bottom 2/3 on the screen going horizontal. Looks like a badly made product.
Summary: We bought a Samsung LCD TV, LN40A650, in late 2008 for about $1200. The TV needed a repair to replace the IP Assembly within a few months ($56), and most recently replacement of the Main PCB ($356).
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.
Pros: Great picture, and all the other things mentioned by everyone else.
Cons: I've had this for just shy of 2 yrs and the LED panel just went out. Of course I can't find the 2 year extended warranty I bought with it. Oh well I went and picked up a 55" Sony Bravia. The picture isn't as nice but I bet it will last longer than 2 years. I had no other cons with this TV, loved ...
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.
