TV v Monitor warranty. It should be 3 yrs for both?

Do you think that all TV's should come with 3 years warranty?

  • I agree 36 months is only fair for a complex and expensive item

I've just purchased a 32" LCD TV from LG; and also an 19" TV/Monitor also from LG; and I'm very happy with both. But the TV/Monitor came with a 3 year warranty from the manufacturer and yet the considerably more expensive TV, only has 12 months manufacturers warranty. That doesn't make any sense does it? Especially when you consider the fact that my TV can be used as a monitor as it comes with a PC connection. :rolleyes:

I think it could and should be 36 months warranty on all LCD/Plasma TV's. What say you? Vote now! :)

Well considering tv's are suppose to last a very long time they should all come with at least 5 years warranty in my opinion, 1 year warranty for tvs that cost 1k or more is just crazy.

I would also like it if ALL LCD and Plasma manufacturers tested their sets more thoroughly for the common issues such as dead pixels, banding, backlight bleed and clouding. If this pushed the price up for all of them then so be it in my mind, it's a mine field trying to get an expensive tv that is fault free.
