RE: I'll never buy another Samsung TV.

Yes, and Sony also had the 'deal' where they'd sell you a new 'equivelent' set for a bargain price based on you sending them your SR# tag from the SXRD. One-To-A-Customer.

The 'settlements' amounted to a Wrist Slap. I never heard of the light engine replacement, but who cares? They'd have lasted another 7000 hours or so and than gone south again.

I think the BEST response I could have made was the suit in Small Claims Court. The few that took that route had good results.

I also was badly informed. I don't know if I had done certain things differently I would have preserved my right to sue. Or had I 'opted out' of the class action suit(s) would that have preserved my right to a small claims suit? I didn't know about the class action stuff until Way Late.

I took the Sony deal and doubled my money the NEXT day selling the set, new-in-box.

What still frosts me is that you are 100%. Sony KNEW about the issues from as far back as the line of projection LCD sets they made. Sony owned or 'held' quite a number of Patents concerning light engines and STILL they used plastic filters. All the equipment I ever used for semiconductor photo processes used Heat Proof Glass in the light path.

Are the current line of PROJECTORS still using plastic filters? Any problems with them?
