RE: Choose carefully

My i-5 processor runs pretty hot too but so far, after 3-4 years pf pretty constant use, all appears to be well.

Since Samsung has discontinued plasmas along with everyone else, the choice boils down to LCD/LED's. Several years ago there was a class action law suit against Samsung for using inadequate capacitors in the power supplies of the LED/LCD TV's. Samsung fixed the TV's, but only after losing the suit. But all bets were off after two or three years. My experience with my plasmas indicates Samsung was still engaged with using inadequate capacitors. While I was searching for a replacement board I saw many many plasmas with exactly the same problem I had, failed power supplies. Others had screen problems with pink lines and other maladies. When you buy a Samsung, after the one year warranty is up, you're on your own with a set that's likely to fail in some way and replacement parts probably won't be available to fix it. I guess the era of disposable TV's is here.
