Now: the big question - This one or Panny's TH-42PX80 plasma?

You'll be lucky to find the PX80 anywhere.

Isn't the 42x10b now?

A further plus in favour of this set is the fact that it can be tweaked to play MKVs and movies via USB just like its bigger brother, the B650 series.

I own a Samsung LCD television which was widely praised on internet reviews sites. Unfortunately, it has just started making a clicking noise and won't switch on. When I investigated this on the internet it seems thousands of other people have the same problem, caused by the use of extremely low quality electronic components by Samsung in its power supply units which pack in after about 15 months (just after the guarantee expires). Most manufacturers would recall or offer to replace faulty components but it appears Samsung has stuck its head in the sand and refuses to acknowledge that there is a problem, charging over £80 an hour for repairs. Don't just take my word for it, look it up on the web. Retailers who have been inundated with complaints are also refusing to acknowledge that there is a manufacturing fault and are insisting the consumer pays for independent engineering reports before honouring their responsibilities under the Sale of Goods act. These reports, of course, cost more thn the item itslef so most consumers simply give in and pay over £200 for the repair. The answer is, of course, is quite simple. Do not touch Samsung TVs with a barge pole.

@mikfrak - I'm not familiar with the fault you describe, but I've got one of these Samsungs: http://www.trustedreviews.c...

which is 4 years old and doing just fine.

Like many other people i have a samsung lcd tv and like many other people the same problem.TV wont turn on clicking noise and red button flashing.

Samsung know of this problem,and refuse to do anything about it.

Pay the £200 repair because the tv cost me £950.

Like the guy above said DONT TOUCH SAMSUNG with a barge pole.

knew i should have stuck with SONY.
