Does anyone have any experience with Samsung quality, such as how long it lasts, etc? It just get's so repetitive so stand at Best Buy and look at TV after TV, they all look the same..but something about the Samsung Smart TVs, the color/picture quality was amazing! They just look so good.
However, at a different forum there seems to be a number of people saying there 3 or 4 yr old Samsung died or had problems..which is making me re-consider. What is the oldest LCD TV anyone has that has actually lasted beyong 5 yrs?
At this point in time I have 12 LCD and LED-LCDs in my house. I have also bought 3 others that I have given to my daughter, and 2 others that I have sold off, and another one that took a nasty fall and died an un-natural death
The oldest one is about 7 years old and was made by Westinghouse. I have another Wesinghouse that I keep outside on my screened in porch 24-7, 12 months a year. That one has been out there for over 4 years. No problem at all with the 7 year old set. The one that's outside tends to run hot. So I keep a fan behind it and it plays perfectly.
I own sets from Westinghouse (4), Sharp (3), Sony(1), LG(1), Samsung(1), and Vizio(2). I have been happy with every one of them. Of all of them the Samsung has by far the most pop. However it also has the most problems when watching in a dark room. The black levels are pretty piss poor when it comes to being even across the screen. There are parts of the screen that look just plain blotchy. Watching in a bright room, it can take you breath away, because it's so damn good.
