Does Samsung give you a printed Owner's Manual nowadays when you buy a TV from them?

Trying to decide if I should buy the Samsung UN40ES6580 40-inch LED TV, I went to their web site and downloaded the Owner's Manual. It is 675 pages long, and the type is enormously large and with large margins. Nobody is going to print that. I imagine it is just about useless. When I bought my Canon printer I got a disk instead of a printed manual. It is almost completely useless. It's much too long to print, and poorly organized, and you can never find what you're looking for.

Is that the way Samsung is treating its customers these days?

Today... Most all vendors either provide a CD for the manual or refer you to a website.
It's possible you can contact Samsung to get a printed copy......... for a fee. wink.gif

Thanks for the reply!

I think that's pretty depressing.

I understand.... but it's the 21st century. It is what it is. Look at how many trees are being saved. biggrin.gif
You can probably read the manual on your cell phone while driving to work. eek.gif
