Summary: Be cautious if considering a Samsung LCD TV. I paid $1600 for this model in 2008 thinking I was buying quality (based in large part on reviews read here and on other sites). Barely 4 years after purchasing, the LCD panel is failing. Colored vertical lines appear all over the screen.
Summary: A 2015 Update! It's almost October, and this Sansung TV just died. I mean in one second - picture and sound disappeared. Customer service was of no help - a technician must fix this at my expense. I've never had a TV die on me before - of course it chooses the night of the new "Daily Show" to do it!
Summary: I originally bought the LN A650. I would delete channels, but they would not stay deleted. After a month of communicating with Samsung, they arranged a repairman to inspect it. He claimed it needed a new "brain". It was the last time I saw him.
Look Ma!! No Backlight Bleed or Screen Clouding!!! AT FIRST.

Summary: Last year I purchased a 37 inch Sony LCD which was ridden with backlight bleed and screen clouding. I recently decided to upgrade to 40 inch 1080p and get meself a blu ray player but have been fearful of getting saddled with another lemon. I can't stand backlight bleed and clouding!!!
