As a matter of fact, Samsung was very little help and it was the shop I purchased it from who replaced it on their own accord, as they got sick of the stall practices by Samsung.
Now the 2nd panel has just become faulty. Vertical streaks on the LHS. You see this often in PC Monitors and at our work, I have never seen one repaired yet. Either a write off or replacement required.
Not looking forward having to deal with Samsung again.
Yes, there can be problems. It took the third set before I finally found a Samsung keeper. If you look through the other TV threads, you'll notice returns and problems, as well. The panel "lotto" has been discussed at length concerning LCD/LED TV's. I'm not sure if this has been cured - - even with the 4K sets and "FALD" features.

That being said, it's newer technology. I expect problems. That's why I'm such a firm believer in an extended warranty. (I went through SquareTrade via Costco.)

Sorry to hear about your TV. I hope you get an adequate replacement or full refund.

Hey everybody! I thought I'd drop in and see if there was still any traffic in this thread. It's nice to see some familar faces are still here!

I'm still rocking the 65ES8000. Have been considering a Samsung 4K in either 75" or 80", but haven't really done any research yet. That's a good thing! I'll probably get more involved in the search to replace the ES8000 in about a year.
