Which model do you own, How often do you replace your TV and finally, would you purchase another Samsung model or look elsewhere ?.

I had a Samsung 40" LCD TV for about five or six years and it was fine, but it gave up the ghost because of a common fault with a capacitor that made it click constantly instead of start-up. That aside, I always bought Samsung monitors and TVs. My latest purchase, to replace the Samsung, was an LG because Samsung don't do a 42" LED. Other than that I'd have gone Samsung again.

Have a LE40B650T2W for about 3 years now and really happy with it. Also have a 24" Samsung Monitor and the panel on both are great. Would def buy another Samsung, in fact looking at getting a 32" LED model tomorrow as a second computer screen

I've got a LE37A456C2D and it's terrible. The contrast ratio is so low I have to max out the settings to see anything dark which makes anything light really washed out. There are far too many picture settings for my liking and the presets are pretty hopeless too. I'm thinking of selling it and putting the money towards something decent. I probably won't be buying another Samsung.

I have had a Samsung 40" ES8000 since May and the picture is the best I've ever seen on an LED/LCD. It took a while to get all the settings to my liking, but I reckon it's now spot-on. Sure it's expensive for a 40" tele, but you do get what you pay for

Had a 32" Samsung for 3.5 years. Been out today and bought a 50" LG plasma for 499. Has a freeview HD tuner , there was also a panasonic with that tuner and price but the found new channel issue (when there isn't and I have a HDD/DVD freeview box that does it) puts me off what is supposedly a better make.

What did you do with it ?

I fixed mine myself, it took me about 40 minutes and only cost me 2.46 for new capacitors, that was 3 years ago and its still going strong now.

As for the original question, I had a Samsung and it was good apart from the capacitor repair having to be done which as pointed out was a common problem, I have no brand loyalty though so will just buy whatever I thing is right at the time, at the moment I have a 50" lg, 32" Samsung in the bedroom (gave the 40" that i repaired to my grandparents) and am looking for a 55" 3d led.
