I have a gq65qn94a tv and a q900a soundbar with 9500s rear speakers and I use them everyday for about an hour or two, or sometimes every other day for the same duration, so unused is about 22 hours or sometimes 46 hours.
I need a scientific answer of the difference between putting a tv and a soundbar on standby mode vs unplugging them completely. I don't mean energy-saving-wise, rather what prolong the lifespan of those devices.
Some websites say I should turn them off because the processors are always working in standby mode and they will degrade overtime. I can already feel the soundbar is warm in standby.
Other websites say that when unplugging then replugging them I put unnecessary strain on the transformers and I'll shorten their lifespans.
I called samsung and also got 2 unclear different answers.
