Quoted from ForceFlow:
I would avoid samsung. Their TV's don't tend to last too long. They use cheap parts on the power supplies.
LG TV's seem to last a very long time.
Their everythigs tend to not last too long. I will never buy another Samsung product again. I've had problems with all but one product of theirs,. The first HD T.V. I bought was a 32" LCD, that worked fine until the Power supply went out on it. I found out this is a common problem. I replaced it with an L.G. and have had zero problems., and it has lasted longer than the Samsung did.
... Then there's the exploding Samsung washing machines ...
