"SAMSUNG UN46B8000 LED TV popping/creaking turned on/off"
5 April 2011
Pros: Beautiful picture.
Cons: Samsung had to replace the mother board on the first month. Now 11 months later there is a popping noises when I turn the TV on and after I turn off the popping noises goes on for over an hour, I reside in a studio, so it is very annoying the popping when
Summary: I bought this TV from Amazon only 15 months ago - I can hardly believe it but I have to report that after buying a state of the art internet enabled TV that recently SAMSUNG NO LONGER SUPPORTS THIS MODEL!!!! I heard about Hulu and wanted to download it -- apparently Samsung created an app store for their Samsung LED HDTVs BUT THIS INTERNET ENABLED TV HAS NOT BEEN INCLUDED IN ITS SUPPORT LIST! I've downloaded the latest firmware and it doesn't help.
Summary: Love the TV and have had several comments on the great picture quality but... It is now seven months old and has died twice in the last month. I have been waiting two weeks now for repairs on the second death. With more calls to Samsung and Gurus to Go than I care to count I am very frustrated. And from searching I have found a lot of dissatisfied owners who are having the same symptoms(clicking and won't turn on.
Pros: Ripoffreport.com has a lot of reviews charting the terrible customer service and poor product quality of Samsung.
Cons: Just google "Samsung LCD won't turn on" and you will see thousands of users have issues with Samsung LCD TVs just after a year. Samsung won't stand by their product or make a TV that lasts more than a year.
