I have had many Samsung products, but my latest Samsung failure has now convinced me, never to buy a Samsung product again.
My Samsung TV, owned for 8 years broke down a couple of weeks ago. A little research showed it may be the power board, but I'm no expert and so I took it to Samsung approved repairers (50 miles away) who would perform free testing and give an estimate based on their findings.
They told me it was the main board, which they replaced, but then they discovered the power board was also at fault.
They discovered too that the board in question is no longer available from Samsung, who obviously like us to fill landfill with their failed products and their pockets with our hard earned cash for more of the same, unreliable rubbish. No longer Samsung, you made a fool of me for too long.
@Gus_T_Butt Whilst I can understand you are disappointed perhaps you are being a bit unrealistic in expecting the spare sparts to be readily available. I would say a smart Tv would generally not last much longer than 7 years.
