Still going ... strong (mostly)

Glad to see that this thread is still alive.
I purchased my 5271 new in late 2007 / early 2008. I (luckily) never have had the capacitor issue or (any other issue). I watch a lot of sports and the stutter has never appeared (I run 120 (high). Only recently have I started seeing some horizonal lines occassionally start to creep in at the bottom of the picture..I shut the tv down & turn it back on and all is OK.
I still have an electronic copy of the owners manual if anyone ever needs it .. I have posted a link too it a couple of times on this thread over the years.
I also have started paying more attention to new tv's given the age of mine. I can't say that I am up on the latest & greatest technology so I would also be intersted in any good info.
Over all having seen a lot of friends tv's from the era I purchased mine I would rate my satisfaction for picture quality & reliability at a 9 on a 1 - 10 scale.
Thanks for the post & looking forward to acquiring some current knowledge on the TV market!

I purchased my 4671 back in February 2008 and still going strong. Never had any problems. Got one of the good ones.

Same here.
Over the years my old Samsung LNT4671 has been a workhorse!

It gets left on for days on end,
It has had its speakers blasted mercilessly during video gaming.
My kids (and now my grandkids) have messed with the menu setting blindly.
Ive only flashed (updated) the system once years ago, and never had an issue anyway.

All the controversial stuff about these units never happened... At least not to mine.
Good to see some activity on this old thread!
Regards,
-Ej-

I'm O.K., Your O.K.
(but the xx71F is flawed?)

Well, 9 years in and our LNT5571F is still working like a champ. Great picture quality, no issues.

It's been a great TV but it's time for a change. I have the itch for a UHD HDR TV, so we just bought a Sony XBR75X940D. It'll be delivered later this week. I don't know what I'll do with the 71F, don't expect that it's worth much these days. I'll probably put it in one of the guest bedrooms and let it enjoy some peace and quiet in its old age.

You mean LNT5271F. It's funny you mention the 940D. I have had my 52 for 10 years and am getting some vertical sync hold issues. After spending a good part of the day on Thanksgiving researching I picked out the 940D. I haven't seen one in person so please post your thoughts on it and as it compares to the great picture on our LNTFs. Thanks!

Still rockin' my 5271F. Had the capacitor issue that was fixed by Samsung. Picture is great, no issues w/ my screen. Will buy a new TV when this finally breaks. It's not worth it to fix. I'll probably go w/ another Samsung or Sony when the time comes.

Me too, but which one?


I think curved screen is out. But after you get up to say 65 inch, what is best tech now days? Which models have had few issues? Picture/Screen wise, not smart TV crapola.

Music, more music.

I'll do my research when I get to that point. Technology now may change in a year - or less! 8K is supposed to come out in a few years. Japan will have 8K by 2020 or so.
