    What are the benefits of Amazon Prime? I never looked into it enough to know anything about it.

    I initially got it for the streaming TV & movies .. But one of the added benefits is that you get very inexpensive (or free on many occasions) expedited shipping ... I got the TV and the Roku (each shipped separately) delivered in two days for $0 ...

    Will never EVER buy Samsung (for myself) again.. I've had several Samsung items take a shit on me way too early... The last straw was a $4000 TV a few years back... Had the thing less than a year and it shit the bed ..never again will I use Samsung

    Really? I love the quality of the picture...as far as shitting the bed, only one 51 inch TV crapped out 2 years in but they sent a tech over to fix it with no issue. I may have got the extended warranty. :dontknow: Sounds like you just had some bad luck. But as far as picture quality goes, I have never seen anything better than a Samsung. imo

    Amazon Prime is the best. So far I have ordered about 250 items from them this year, almost all without shipping charges. :dance:

    it wasn't just the TV I've had problems with..Over the years I've had two Samsung cellphones, a DVD player, a fairly expensive Laser-jet printer, and a stereo receiver ALL take a shit on me within 6-8 months from the purchase date ... Christ, I've had a Sony digital clock-radio sitting on my nightstand for nearly 10 years and it works just as good now as it did when I first bought it... Why can Sony build a little shitty clock radio to work flawlessly for a decade, but Samsung can't build any of the products I had last past 10 months??... That TV was a real pisser, for me..When that thing took a shit, I seriously could've shoved the entire unit up a Chinks ass, I was so furious ... I rarely paid attention to who was manufacturing what up until that point..

    Holy crap that's a lot of bad Samsung's. I have 3 tvs and 2 monitors and even my phone is a Samsung and I only ever had that one problem that was fixed with no question. As far as Sony goes...well...I have a VAIO laptop and I hate it. But laptops are another story...I choose Toshiba.
