im usually not an EW person. however, seems general quality issues have done nothing but go downhill. in 2009 i purchased an LG lcd tv. 2 1/2 years into it developed a problem. 3 years later (total) it became unwatchable due to pink and green horizontal lines bouncing around. it also ran hotter than the much larger plasma i now have. burned by that bad experience, not to mention others i know who had problems with their 2 - 3 year old washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, i now buy EWs!
