Broke down twice in first 6 months
8 November 2010
Summary: In the first 6 months of buying this TV I've had two problems: - randomly not pickup channels with a message on the screen 'weak or no signal' I would check the signal through the TVs software and there were no bars. As soon as you power off the TV and turn it back on, all channels return with full signal strength. Samsung sent out a repair person (took Samsung referring me to 3 different service providers to get it fixed) and replaced some board.
Summary: Everything was fine with it for about a month and a half and then I started noticing faint gray streaks on the tv, only visible if the background is a solid, light color, like during a hockey game or a blue sky, for example. I couldn't return the set, as a month had already passed, so I contacted Samsung about getting it fixed or replaced under warranty. They sent out a third-party tech who checked it out and confirmed the lines and he explained it to Samsung.
