Hi,
Just want to share some previous samsung troubles, the widely known power defects.
And the introduction of my new Philips 55 inch 3 way ambilight LED tv.


First the good, later the (and I mean never ever again the bad) samsung.

Recently I bought the Philips 55PUK7150, that is 4k LED, Android TV 5.1 control
(nicely blended with company software), front directional speakers, woofer in the back,
nice colors/blacks and design, and not to forget 3 way ambilight.
And the partly possiblity to install your custom app/apk on the tv. (I got videos of this)
Good and easy usb/nas video player, the factory mediaplayer or through MxPlayer or Kodi app, perfect!
The Kodi app with plexbmc is just a real treat and works like a charm!

unboxing/unpacking the tv set, till full installation;

Just love it.


Now the bad, the Samung plasma PS51E8000.
The top-line model, the (almost) best blacks (Panasonic was better then), but bought this model.
I really, really loved the picture quality, plasma is just real blacks (no overexpensive oled yet..)
But after a few month it started, off and back on, repeating itself.. And nooo I didnt touch it.
This went on for 3.5 year, four repairs further. I had 2 year factory warrenty, but then my costs...
Finally the tv had to go, got some money back. And then we looked for a non-samsung tv!!
The electronics, power, capacitors, it just aarghh.. Never ever again a bad cheap made samsung product again.

Trouble proof,

(even more of these somewhat boring samsung power problem off/on available...)

But they do make nice HD-black/color videos, nice on the samsung Plasma.
But even nicer on the Philips with my ambilights :)
