Samsung is secretive at times and its often difficult to get a straight answer from their tech support but then again they may be no worse than other manufacturers. If it develops that all series and every model have this issue, then yes, it almost certainly would be intentional.
|Also, it would be nice to include hristoslav2 in our discussions, I am wondering where exactly he obtained his claims from.
hristoslav2 has tons of panel info on the avforums site, dont know what his sources are. He has no info on H3xx but Im sure he will post if/when he finds out.
|You are also correct on those "C" panel versions, from what we see the service menu type that points to a Samsung panel only appears to impact earlier models. The "H3xx" models appear to be consistent in showing up as Samsung panels in the service menu, which is good.
Unfortunately, if all the 55" units read 55A every panel will register as a Samsung. If this is only an issue with the 55"ers then the smaller sized units should reveal its true identity.
If the smaller units show C panels as Samsung panels,then its widespread.
Up to now I havnt noticed any reports from owners of smaller 6300/6400
units with A or C panels.
