background: I am thinking my TV will be replaced under warranty again. I have had two 50+ TV's in 5 years each dieing before the end of the warranty. They buy back for the value it would be to replace with a similar TV today. If i want anything beyond that price i have to pay ontop of. This TV i paid 2400 and from the looks of it the value is 1000 now.
I've had 2 Samsung TV's one was DLP 55" this one is a Samsung 52" LCD 120Hz touch of red TV. I would rather not have another Samsung. I will probably get another 50-55" TV but thought about getting a 32" and be done with these expensive TV's. What i really want is a TV that lasts for a long time! I am absolutely sick at how much i have spend on these two tv's. I drive Honda and Toyota for a reason, I have no issues!
According to Consumer Reports the most reliable TV is a Panasonic LCD, followed by a Panasonic Plasma, Dynex LCD, Sharp, Sanyo, JVC, Sony and Sylvania. According to CR, Samsung is one of the worst brands for reliability.
