Rated 2 out of 5 by from Died after 2 years I bought this TV in 2011, and put maybe a total of 100 hours on it. Within two years, the TV is dead. When I turn it on, all I get now is a loud electronic humm/noise. No picture, but sound still works. Of course, I never bought the extended warranty because I thought there is nothing mechanical here, so what could go wrong!
