"TV Failed in 1.5 years"2.5 starson by rcphx
Pros: Picture quality stands out in side-by side comparison with competitors and features are good.
Cons: Reliabilty. Cost. Whatever happened to the the addage "You get what you pay for"? I was willing to pay up for what I thought was better quality and believe a tv should last a good 10 years.
Summary: I was impressed with the Samsung when I purchased it and was very happy with it up until it started having problems only 1.5 yrs old. Over a several week period, the tv started cycling thru power-up taking minutes to come on, and then it would often have purple pixels all over the black background - turning off/on again would usually resolve this; but over time it would come on with multi-colored vertical lines in the display - turning off/on would cycle and come on, but ultimately the day came when the tv just cycled thru power on, light flashing then a clicking sound, and never came on, just continued to cycle - after an hour or so of this I unplugged it.
