Showing 1-10 of 33
No more Samsung for us
10 January 2014
Summary: I would give this 1/4 of a star if I could. The tv was great when we first got it ... beautiful, clear picture. After 4 years, we began to get shadows and a ripple effect. Samsung virtually told us that we had a lemon and too bad. (I will send a howler to their CEO for all the good it will do.
Summary: Well, I loved this TV dearly but after 4-5 years, mine too has gone by the wayside. What a waste of money. 1300 Dollars for 5 years?? Really? Vertical lines all of a sudden appeared one day. Of course it is out of warranty and possibly outside the class-action lawsuit filed against a handful of companies (Samsung included) for just this same exact problem. What a ripoff.
Summary: The screen started to flicker a month after the warranty expired. Now the TV starts with a distorted picture that slowly gets better as it warms up. I spent a lot for a high end TV expecting it to last. To have to replace it within 4 years is unbelievable.
Summary: I bought this TV in December 2008 and loved it. 4 years of great use. Today I turned it on and it's got vertical line streaks. Color is off as well. Went straight to Amazon to see new reviews and like all the other people that reported issues, I experienced the same. $1500 paperweight. So disappointed Samsung!
Summary: Purchased this TV in 12/08 and it is now broken. Vertical line problem. Up until this point it has been a reasonable TV, not great and not terrible. Pretty frustrating. This problem is documented all over the web with these TVs. Sometimes Samsung will make good on fixing it but it has been said that they don't have parts to fix this anymore. Didn't anticpate having to purchase a new TV in such a short timeframe.
Summary: After approximately 26 months the picture started to break up and the TV became unwatchable. It has now gone to e cycling. Beware reviews of Samsung quality - my experience was terrible. I do not intend to purchase another Samsung product.
Summary: Samsung LN40A750 40-Inch 1080p DLNA LCD HDTV with Red Touch of Color Enjoyed this television for first year. Second year, not so much! Television clicked and clicked instead of turning on. Spent $250 having three capacitors replaced. The set worked well for nine more months. Now, there are colored vertical lines moving with the brighter movements on screen.
Summary: Bought this TV on April 14 2009. Everything was perfect. Delivery from Amazon was flawless. There really isn't any reason why you shouldn't buy large Tv's from Amazon online. Delivered on-time and undamaged. Then in May '10 after overnight being off, there are 2 horizontal boxes on top of each other in the middle of screen appearing at start-up. Two weeks of this now and the boxes disappear after about 2 minutes.
Summary: First off-Skip-it. Great picture, mediocre sound, Bezel problem. Bezel color is cracking and chipping around the edge, and light deflecting off this area looks awful. So called "TOC" is a cheap piece of adhesive red film around the parameter of a soft, easy to scratch clear plastic frame. Samsung warranty won't cover what they called "cosmetic problems" and Amazon service rep was unintelligible.
Summary: I purchased a 40" Sony Bravia last year and the Samsung LN40A750 this Christmas. The difference between the two is dramatic. Both TV's are connected to satellite, so the picture quality should be negligable between the sets. The vividness of the colors of the Samsung far exceeds that of the Sony, besides the brightness, and the contrast. Both are set to the manufacturer's defaults.
