Well, as with many people who come here looking for information about new TV's, I find myself back here again.
I bought a UN60F6300 early last year. It took about a month an a half to notice the first issue.
The TV had developed 9 dead pixels almost in the center of the screen. I was able to outright replace the TV due to some nice sales associates at Sears. At the same time the manager had allowed me to buy the 5 yr. warranty on this TV. A month or so after the fact.
The replacement TV took about 3-4 months to develop its issues. The speakers started vibrating badly in Anything above 8 volume in HD.. and to make matters worse, the screen developed a large back spot that had increased in size to about 12" across by 8-10" in high right above the Samsung logo.
The panel was separating, as I was told my the Tech from Sears that came out.
Well, they decided to replace the panel and the speakers. That didn't work.
Amazingly enough, the New panel, out of the box, had a black mark very, very similar to the 1st, almost dead center of the screen and about 1/2 inch in size. (This makes 1 TV with dead pixels, 1 TV with a giant back spot, and 1 replacement panel with a near identical spot but smaller - 3 panels total all are SHARP panels. The Tech said SHARP panels have a lot of issues.) And 60" panels from Samsung are SHARP panels.
After about a month and a half, the TV was deemed a lemon and not worth investing any more money in. But not before they came back to replace the 2 boards on the back of the tv to try and fix the audio (as I was told). It did not fix the problem. That was repair #3
and the 4th was to be scheduled to replace the panel and the speakers, yet again.
Sears needs 3 trips out to replace something under warranty and a 4th repair scheduled before they will give back your money.
Well, I got my money back as a credit last night and I'm here to find it's replacement. I still have 4 years of warranty left on whatever TV I choose.
It's replacement in 2014 is the 60H6350 but I'm thinking that I might go up a series or so to see if I can elude these issues. Maybe they are made better?
I am going to stay with Samsung, as I like their TV's and staying LED. I was thinking the 60" of the H7150 line. Is there a line between the H6400 and the H7150 that Sears sells? Right now the screen is matte but I do like the fact that the 7150's have the ultra clear panels..
So, any thoughts?
Thanks for reading.
