My 81 year old father purchased a brand new 40" Samsung LN-T4065F on 9-17-07. The TV worked flawlessly for the first 26 months. In January 2010 the TV began to develop pixeled looking strips 1-2" long @ 10 different locations on the screen. Within a couple of days the TV became difficult to turn on taking numerous attempts. The TV finally passed away on 2-01-10 of power failure. My research thru AVS has discovered a long ongoing issue with Samsung installing defective capacitors in their LCD TVs. I brought this to their attention only for them to say tough luck, deal with it your warranty has expired. CONSUMERS BEWARE... If you do not mind paying for a warranty which protects us from a supposedly Reputable Company which installs cheaper defective components in their LCD TVS then continue to purchase from Samsung. Their Reliablity in my opinion leaves alot to be desired and their customer service attitude is pathetic!!!! I have already returned 2 defective LN52a750 TV's last year only to settle for their Plasma PN50A650 which so far has been a phenominal product. My hope is that it lasts longer than 26 months. Only time will tell.
