No joke. I bought a 3D LG HDTV at Amazon on September 1st and it broke in only 3 months. I barely watch the tv and suddenly a lot of horizontal lines appeared all over the screen! It didn't matter if I watched TV, watch cable, play a game, the lines were, and still are, there. The really bad part is that the LG customer service is extremely awful. It seems that they just want to avoid what I say and they refuse to provide me any kind of repair. If you buy a LG tv, let's say, and it stops working, and you try to communicate with customer service, they will schedule you with a repairman who is suppose to visit you at home to check the TV, he will never be there and you will need to make a new appointment, then they will tell you, "We're sorry, we do not cover warranty for TVs bought from Amazon," that's what they told me. I got tired of calling customer service already. I have called them about 10 times and they are always like, "call this number, they will help you further." Also, they tell me to call Sears so a repairman from sears can repair my tv and if I call Sears, they refuse to help me because I did not buy the TV at Sears... In other words, I highly do not recommend getting any LG TV. I loved LG but after this HORRIBLE experience, I will never buy from them again. My tv is just there... waiting for the 1 year LG warranty to expire as it waits for a repairman to come and fix it. I do not even watch it anymore. All those horrible lines on the screen are so annoying... ugh! And I guess that if a repairman comes to "repair" the TV he will be like "I need these parts but they are not covered by warranty so you will need to pay for them."...
Sorry if this is not the right place to post this but this thread should not be here anyway and it will be probably deleted so yeah... LG customer service is awful. If I was going to buy another HDTV, I would make a little research and find out which company has the better customer service. Good luck!
