Most folk want the lower prices over a printed manual. It is clear you want a printed manual but I see the entire industry dropping the printed manual and saving quite a few bucks.
Not only that, makers can correct errors in said manuals and get them to you for almost nothing.
We just bought a un40d6300 Samsung. After spending all this money we are told that we can either print out a 300 page manual or spend $20. to buy one. If I had known this I would have bought from another company who thinks of their customer's convenience. I feel that I was taken advantage of. I understand going green, but having to print out 300 pages is absurd.
