I am also one the victims of these television manufacturers.
(32" LCD panel gone in 14 months).
I have seen a lot of such complaints and I was about to post.
Just wanted to know, what is the outcome?
Did anyone get a free replacement (with new one)?
Did anyone get free repair (replacement of panel)?
Did anyone got the replacement done at very small price (if yes, how much)?
Please share your experience, it will help many people like me.
