Never again a Samsung
17 August 2012
Summary: I have had this model for a little over a year and my screen died. This is the second Samsung to have it's screen die on me in a short period of time. I called Samsung and was transferred to their Executive Support, how useless.
Summary: This product is defective and Samsung does not want to fix it. I bought it on August, 2008 paying $1,829. It did not work due to blown capacitor on September, 2010. One capacitor was replaced by a free service but again other two capacitors were blown off on one day of March, 2012.
Summary: I purchased this TV here on Amazon. After four months it broke down. I called customer service and they issued a repair order. That was 7 days ago and I still do not have an appointment for the fix. The local repair company Samsung hired ''had ZERO interest in fixing my TV.
Summary: Well, today my tv died. it's been almost 3 years for this piece of rubbish. I liked the TV alot but the Tv repairman (didn't know they still existed) came today and said i had a screen panel defect and there was nothing he could do about it. Better off buying a new one.

Summary: If you don't want to read this entire review you can skip it and just do a fast google and youtube search - samsung capacitor problem and samsung capacitor class action lawsuit. These are GREAT TVs while they work but they seem to only work for a year or two.....
Summary: After comparing specs between LCD and Edge-Lit LED, and reading many favorable reviews I decided to purchase the Samsung 6300 series LED. After first setting up the tv and viewing Avatar I was very impressed with the clarity and depth.
Summary: We bought this tv from Amazon2 years ago.We loved everything about it. Then 2 days ago, a wide vertical swatch appeared down the center of the screen. We called a local tech out to check it out and were told that the circuit board was shot. To replace it would cost $1,000.00.
Summary: I've purchased two of these TVs from Amazon.com, and I've had to return them both due to problems. Maybe I was just unlucky, but I will not be purchasing another Samsung TV. Thankfully, Amazon's service department was fantastic through the entire ordeal.
Summary: I first bought this TV from Amazon after seeing it at a local electronic store (B&M). Once the tv arrived I set it up and tweaked the settings that I found online from a reputable forum. The picture quality was OK, not great.
