First Samsung and now Mitsubishi have reached a settlement in class action suits regarding under-rated capacitors. I don't have a link to a story and just found out about it because I owned a WD62725 (V26 chassis) until I recently gave it to my Brother In Law and received a settlement notice today. Basically if you paid to have it repaired due to the capacitor issue you can get reimbursed for your expenses. If you haven't had it repaired they will fix it for free or let you buy a new one at dealer cost. I had the thing fixed for that problem once under extended warranty and then fixed it myself when it failed outside the extended warranty so it doesn't apply (I'm sure I didn't keep the receipt for the caps) to me but I'm glad to see that they were forced to do something for all the people that had to deal with this. It also made me decide to register all new TVs, appliances, etc. I buy in case these things happen again, I never really worried about registering them before.
