Summary: i KNOW THIS ITEM IS 4 YEARS OLD BUT IT IS THE FIRST AND THE NEWEST OF OUR sAMSUNG PURCHASES FROM aMAZON TO GO OUT ON US. tHE 42" sAMSUNGS THAT ARE OLDER WORK GREAT. This one the circuit board is acting up since Christmas. This morning...the sound goes up and down by itself. In order to get a picture without numbers flashing at you ...you work the buttons at the side and say a Hail Mary. I just do not think this model should go out in 4 years.
Summary: After less than a years, I had to spend $200, to have it repaired. It was out of warranty so I did not try to return it. I believe in Samsung and have not had any problems since the repair. I would buy this tv again.
Summary: I bought this TV about 2 years back and his has exceeded my expectations. I bought it primarily for use as a display for my MacMini (which works perfectly) but now have it hooked up with cable, an Xbox, AppleTV, and an N64. After 2 years of daily use, sometimes up to 8 hours a day, the picture is still as great as the day I bought it.
