I bought a cheap but cheerful 50" LG plasma in December and enjoyed it for around 2.5 months. Unfortunately the stand was crap and I propped it up making it crapper and didn't get around to putting it on a wall. The inevitable happened, it fell forwards one night and the screen is cracked
Now just to note this is the actual screen not any glass cover (too cheap TV) so it's really gone. I was reading recently that a repair would cost more then then (£455!) TV itself - also LG won't sell the part to end users. I just wanted to ask you knowledgable folk if this is really true? I'm completely out of pocket?
Anyway let this be a lesson for you people that
1) crap stands are dangerous
2) cheap LG plasma screens closely resemble mirrors in practise.
