My Samsung has same failure as previous customers. It lasted till after warranty expiration. For such an expensive item, I take advantage of an extended warranty and glad I did as this is the 2nd time a Samsung has failed. Replacement from extended warranty is an LG, which I hope has a better track record. A real shame for when you go to a big retail store, it seems Samsung has a superior picture compared to other tv's. Obviously Samsung should give existing customers an additional year warranty to compensate for this premature failure of components.
