LG Tv's are excellent but IF I could afford it I'd go down the Panasonic Vierra or Pioneer road - my old Panasonic CRT Quintrix has lasted nearly 9 years and still going strong - in fact I gave it too my brother in law and he can play blu-ray DVD's on it even though it's a CRT it's got a flat screen at 1000 MHz:P - Good old Panny's!
The problem with the LED TV's (especially the Samsungs) is that due to having so little depth to them the speaker quality is poor as they dont have the depth to resonate properly making the sound 'tinny' (this is on quite a few reviews if you look around online).
I was looking at Samsung but am going to get one of the new Sony Bravia ranges which were released in the last 3-4 weeks and come with a 5 year manufactuer warranty.
I went to an independant local TV store and was speaking to them about this in there (they sold all types of model TV's) and they basically said "Samsung look nice from the outside but dont have much inside" and highly recommended the Sony's & Panasonic's.
I would say go Panasonic. The assistent site managers son accidently spilt water down the back of his Panasonic Plasma TV about 3 years ago, when the engineer came out to fix his tv he said this was this is the first Panasonic they had come out to as they do not generally go wrong. The main site managers Toshiba LCD TV went on the blink and when the engineer came out he asked him what brand he said is the best for reliability and he said Panasonic too.
Also Panasonic have Pioneers Kuru technology now. We have LG's at school and seem to have nice features but i do not expect them to have the reliability of the Pannys
The sound on my Samsung is definitely not particularly 'tinny'. I have played all sorts of sounds from orchestral to screaming and it seems fine to me
I've had no first hand experience of it though and am passing on second hand information, you've got a Samsung and say its fine so..... :)
Has any one got one of these TV's?
