Rather than repost a wall of text here I thought you guys might like to hear about my experience with LG's warranty support regarding my 34UM95 which developed backlight bleed 2 weeks after purchase.
I've posted about it on Reddit here: http://www.reddit.co...g_34_ultrawide/
Replied but will reply here too:
Wow this sucks. My problem is a little different (and not solved yet) I bought a 40" Samsung Smart TV that is supposedly an older model (UE40EH5300W) and at a decent price of just €359 but it has backlight flickering and color bleeding after being on for more than an hour. Although I bought it just 11 days ago and received it a couple of days later I can't really return it because I bought their last one and they don't plan on restocking. Plus I don't want a refund, I want this TV, not another (because it's also a Smart TV, for that money!
So now I am busy with Samsung who have confirmed the issue with Remote Assistance, and will send out a guy to either repair or replace. Not a warranty issue here, although they did remind me of my consumer rights to the retailer, they are still going ahead with the warranty process.
Hope it gets sorted for you man.
As an example of the problem, yesterday I watched Colombia v Uruguay and I could only stomach the first half before it became unwatchable (due to the TV, not the performance of the game)
Luckily I have a 32" LED in my bedroom (which is also Samsung) so I just watched the second half on that lol.
