I hope this is NOT a trend starting to show up but as time goes by we will see. In my case I will probably just enjoy the set until the F series come out. Then I'll call Best Buy Warrenty Dept and arrange for a service call. Last year , my panel went bad on my 40" D-6000 long story short, I got a free upgrade to a 46"7100 to match the Ultra Clear panel type since no panel part replacement was avalible. Who knows, this could happen again and I just may end up with another free upgrade to the F7000 series. Does any body know the policy from Best Buy for one dead pixel to get a new panel replacement approval? I don't remember if they have a "Zero" defect warranty or not. Well if not, this issue can't be seen unless you get 1 foot or closer to the screen.
My ES7100 was also a upgrade from a Best Buy Samsung.
I had the D6900 with banding and dead pixels (I feel your pain).
Samsung replaced the D6900 after 3 repair attempts, I also requested the ultra clear panel.
I have your same positive attitude, another problem = possible F7100 replacement.
Best Buy or any warranty comes down to convincing people...not just the fine print.
