funny you should mention this. I have a cousin who works for a Japanese liabilty insurance company (they insure/re-insure alot of extended warranty policies on tv's and other equipment) and he specifically mentiond Phillips being korean sheyat and that LG is doing more with it's own line and putting their own (LG) name on it rather than the phillips crap..says the cost of issuing policies on the phillips is costly because of it's poor quality and that LG is getting over on people by selling they're crap through phillips.
I don't know this to be true or not, nor can i provide proof. Just merely passing on what someone who insures policies,(he's responsible for the entire Eastern region of the U.S.A) specifically mentioned, and used phillips as THE example. I don't know about you guys, maybe phillips makes a decent tv, i've never had one, but i trust my cousin and based upon what he said..I'll PASS.
