It looks like the new Samsung 42″ PDP TVs are really bugging the hell out of Korean customers… Which is good news for us in the US since all the Koreans do beta-testing for us… (Well, I am Korean too but I don’t live there…)
Well, it’s a good thing that Samsung did fix the problem by recalling them but still, who wants to buy a big ass TV and expect to see half?
Last June 21, Korea Consumer Agency, a governmental organization established to protect consumer rights and interests, announced that regarding Samsung’s four 42-inch PDP TV models (‘SPD-42S5HD’ ‘SPD-42S5HDM’ ‘SPD-42P5HD’ ‘SPD-42P5HDM’) they officially requested Samsung to recall them and repair them at no charge due to some product defects. And within two months from the date of the announcement, more than six hundreds incidents have been posted. If complaints written on the other community websites and Samsung Electronics’ official web page will be counted, the number is likely to increase.
