I got one of those TVs during black friday for the same price, but it was 120Hz and was smart

I would suggest a few back-up T-CON boards for that Samsung TV. After abt 2 yrs you may need to change the board. Trust me, I been there...:(

Of course, Australia doesn't have any such product on Dell site as TVs... That's a really nice TV and price.

Waiting for a sub $1k LCD 72" or larger. The 60" is close.

I've used nothing but Samsung the last few years for TVs and none of them have ever broke or showed any problems. Even owned one from 2008 that were known to have capacitor issues. Not one issue.

Electronics in general can have issues but to say and call out one company just cause you had a issue doe not mean all will have issues. You can say you don't like a company but to tell others you need to buy parts cause of a issue you had isn't right. All companies have issues, there isn't one company better than another, people just think they are cause either they have never had a issue or cause there problem was taken are of. Buy what you like but always understand what you are buying.
