New plasma or LCD flatscreen tv
I purchased a 40" philips flat screen LCD tv. After 14 months the item quit working.
The repairman said upon initial appt. that the item would need to be completely rebuilt, and that would take a month. I said no way, and returned it instead. Having lost total confidence in the brand, I chose another, Toshiba.
After 12 and a half months(Ihad a one year warranty) this one quit working also. Now I have to come up with another $1,000 bucks to do it again as if i was masochistic. What gives with this new technology? Can we not have any confidence in our purchases anymore?
Before this my 19" mitsubishi gave me 29 years of trouble free service.
When we spend a thousand bucks on one of these tv's, should'nt we at least expect a few years of service for our hard earned money. I can't even afford to buy another one now if I wanted to!
