Really? I've had an H21-200, HR21-200, HR24-200 and HR44-200, plus a samsung TV, BD player, 2 phones, washer and dryer and have been quite satisfied.

Well it is a Samsung...I detect out of the three HR44's this one has the highest failure rate.
I presume you mean "predict". What is this based upon?

I've yet to have a Sammy fail me, but I switched only three years ago. I have four Sammy HD TVs, (one Plasma, two LCD and one LED), two or three monitors, and a blu-ray player. All first class. Do you have statistics from a credible source, or your own experience to cite?

Yes from my own experience with their products. Yes others swear by them but I do not. It really is not a choice what specific HR44 you receive on a truck roll so I will say this, I would be happy with that HR44-200 if thats what I got. Almost two years ago I scoured the country for an extra HR24...it had to be a HR24-500. Sticking with the first producer of a new receiver rollout is where I would sway. Was thrilled it was a HR44-700 this last upgrade so to speak.

Main thing is, I hope you get what you want. Thanks for the reply.

Did you read Crutchfield's review of the Sammy 4K TVs? The come with an upscaler (a seperate unit that can be upgraded) to 4K. Good review, read it in the latest Crutchfield catalog.

I still like my Sammy BD players and I do have a new Sony to compare them to. Have already experienced problems with the Sony, but I expected that when I bought it.

I've always had good luck with the HRxx-200s, except for the 21-200 that started burning one night.

Wow a Samsung model, this is the one I want! I have an HR24-200 and H24-200 and they run fine. Comparatively to a friends HR24-500, my -200 ran much faster (scrolling, bringing up the guide, etc...).

Samsung has a long history with set top boxes. Time Warner Cable, the nations #2 cable operator in sheer size (right behind Comcast) uses a lot of Samsung set top boxes.

Samsung also makes my main Plasma TV. They seem to make good products and I would highly consider them for future TV's and other appliance purchases.

So, Rich, you gonna be first here with a 4K set??
Nope, I keep looking at my 58" 720p Panny plasma that cost me ~ $2,500 and I'll never pay over 2 grand for another TV. Made that mistake once and learned from it (altho my heart filled with lust when I read the Crutchfield write up on the Sammy 4K sets).

They also made the worst SD TiVos and cheated many people by using capacitors that were out of spec in their TVs. Let's not forget about that. Hopefully all that is behind them.
