I'll soon be returning a new Sharp 37" 43u in exchange for either of the above-mentioned Sammy models, and wanted to make sure first that Samsung Canada will support them if the unit is plagued with the infamous "tearing" issue...
I know that the 4053 "should" be supported since it is made/supplied by Samsung Canada and has a Canadian model number (LNT4053HX/XAC
), but I went through a similar issue with my plasma unit when a fix for the "judder" issue was released from Samsung USA, and Samsung Canada claimed there was no fix available; they refused to consider anything that had to do with their sister-company and I had to get the firmware fix myself through a private US owner!!
As for the 3753, that model is even more of a concern, since it seems to be exclusive to FutureShop yet does not appear on the Samsung Canada website; it boasts a US model number (LNT3753HX/XAA
) and I'm assuming that FS probably imports these units directly from BB in the US or something...
In any case, I'm just preparing for the worst, so I thought to ask if there's anyone with real life experience here.
Thanks to all in advance,
