I guess I have been out of the loop on TV's lately but something happened today that blew me away. I bought a 59in Samsung plasma back in Nov 2011 and it or was a damn good tv from color, black, ratio to aesthetically looking nice. Flat and thin like Eddie's mom. It started this clicking noise one day and no picture and cycling on/off. So I call Samsung and yeah I am out of warranty at this point but still..noone can come fix it? Apparently not even in a city with a pop. of around 155k. So either I learn to become a tv repairman or my nice expensive tv goes into the junkyard. Actually I'll take it apart for parts for my 2 other samsung's (doh). I guess I have to start assuming I'll need a new tv every 5years or so. I mean how the hell am I supposed to transport a big ass 4k tv if I buy one to get it fixed in my jeep if noone will come to my house >.> These are tv's not freakin cell phones. Hell I don't even know how I'll transport this thing to the junkyard. This tv I took some time to pay it off cause I was building 2 new pc's and needed cash for parts, etc. I suppose once the warranty ends you better hope you have a good model especially if it very large or have to sell it to some tv repairman to come take it off your hands for parts. Taking a big tv for a ride in a car even if you think it is stabilized is not recommended. Guess it is time to do some heavy research on a 4k tv and how dependable, long lasting they are cause that will be my next move.
