Samsung Black Screen of Death (actual term to Google search)

Summary: Yeah. Don't buy this. Goggle: Samsung black screen but sound. I hate to go to the extreme, but with a Note II and a Samsung TV that lost its picture after just four months, I'm not buying another Samsung product. Here's what happened: I got my first TV from Best Buy (I'll explain why Best Buy in a bit). After I took it home, there was a row of dead pixels. Not just a few, an entire row. Therefore, I returned the television and acquired a new one the next day.
Summary: This tv is advertised with audio out and it does not have this. TV has good pic and sound but for the price not a great deal. My older samsungs come with more hdmi's, audio out and other hookups. After trying to hookup soundbar, I called Samsung who confirmed no audio out. Every store that sells this TV advertises the audio out. I took this TV back and bought Sharp Aquos which does have audio out and 4 HDMIs.
