Complete Garbage. Avoid Samsung Televisions.

Summary: Here's a public service announcement: this Samsung television is garbage. I bought a new one 3.5 years ago. It worked fine, until three days ago when suddenly, and for no discernible reason, it turned itself off. Now it has no picture, no sound, and unless your idea of captivating television entertainment is to watch a tiny red power light blink sporadically, this product is a complete failure.
Summary: I purchased this TV in 2010 based on the excellent reviews. About 6 months ago it started turning itself off and then turning itself back on within 5 minutes. Over the past few months the situation has worsened and last night it turned itself off and on a total of 12 times in just under 6 minutes. In researching this problem, I found that back in 2010 Samsung had a class action suit brought against them because of this issue.
Summary: I've owned this set for almost three years. Picture and sound is all great, and there have been no defects. BUT BE WARNED: If you ever want to play your ipod or other audio through the speakers it will not play. The speakers cut off unless there is also video being sent at the same time. This seems intentional and is a huge disappointment. Pfft. I've been able to do this on every other TV I have owned. Annoying!
Summary: We purchased this model LCD TV set in May of 2010. The sticker on the back says it was manufactured April 2010. After about a year the TV kept turning itself off and then back on again. This happened once or twice a night, so we ignored it. After all, it still worked. Then this last week it kept turning off and on again about 5 to 10 times a night and then last weekend, it wouldn't turn on at all.
