"Do your homework before spending this much $$ on a TV."0.5 starson by mgrune
Pros: You would think the Samsung name meant quality, but apparently maybe not so much with this TV.
Cons: Since I don't have one I have to rely to what I read on the internet. There are good and bad reviews.
Summary: Per the suggestion in one of the other reviews, I Googled "samsung cracked plasma". After reading the posts at http://forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-340997-16/internal-crack-on-my-tv-panel/?tag=contentMain;posts I decided to skip on this TV. I do not know how many of these tv's fail, but given the responses all over the internet it is enough to keep me from buying one.
