Absolutely horrible experience

James T Edge, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this literally 12 months ago. Just out of warranty it dies. Replaced the main board, power board still doesn't work. Just like anything else I have owned built by Samsung it doesn't work. I will NEVER buy another Samsung product in my entire life. Google Samsung TV issues and you will see an entire swath of issues. I don't understand how this company can even be in business treating their customers the way they do!

Would have given a 0 rating if I could

  • Summary: I have had this tv for almost a year now. After about 3 months I noticed small cracks appearing on the screen. If you ran your finger over them you could not feel them so they are obviously under the surface screen. I took pictures and contacted Samsung but they told me the warranty would not cover this due to their belief it was caused by physical damage of some sort even though the screen has never been touched and there isnt a single scratch or scuff on the surface...
